Japanese Canteen, Aldgate, London

Japanese Canteen, Aldgate, London

The only downside of working in a spot like Aldgate, is that the (near) lunch options aren’t that numerous. As such, I find myself clinging to the places that are the most reliable and the most efficient. When it comes to canteen-style Japanese cuisine that […]

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster. But truth be told, I simply want fried chicken dammit. The houses of chicken are an intriguing institution and there are so many of these stores here in the UK. The ever […]

StickyWings, Brick Lane, London

StickyWings, Brick Lane, London

StickyWings make for sticky hands. I had my first visitors to my new locale in East London and we headed along to the Zomato well-rated StickyWings on Brick Lane. From the looks of things it’s changed owners a number of times, but was hasn’t changed is that it prides itself on its wings. To the point that it actually declares itself as “Officially Britain’s Best Buffalo Wings”. Including in their URL (lol). We thought the buffalo wings were pretty good, but there’s not a lot of competition and it wasn’t mind-blowing. But it was good.

MEATLiquor N1, Islington, London

MEATLiquor N1, Islington, London

When you head into MEATLiquor, two things are bound to happen. You’ll have a food coma and you’ll have a great time doing so. My bro and I were already done with our *first* dinner and then walked over to Islington for our next fill. […]

Bento Bab, Whitechapel, London

Bento Bab, Whitechapel, London

I have a confession. Recently, I’ve become addicted to the little Korean eatery just around the corner from the office, also known as Bento Bab. It’s a bit of a guilty pleasure for a few of us in the workplace, what, with it’s fried chicken-ness […]

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Dirty Bones, Carnaby, Soho, London

Carnaby Street does events every now and then and we took advantage of a recent one for a cheaper (cough, bargain) dinner over at Dirty Bones. There’s three branches of Dirty Bones in Carnaby, Soho and Shoreditch. Their menu is New York style American comfort food, so it was one I had my eye on for some time. Also, I love the Carnaby Street area, it’s a nice little retreat from the crowds and tourist traps. So what did we order?

Foxlow, Soho, London

Foxlow, Soho, London

Foxlow arrived to the crowded Soho scene earlier this year and launched with a buzzing half price offer. This was enough incentive to get a dining group from the office along. The style is British-Euro and it’s reasonably good, but might need some time to […]

Restaurant Hyggestund, Copenhagen

Restaurant Hyggestund, Copenhagen

All you need to say is “chicken waffle” and I’m on your table ready to devour. That’s what happened at Restaurant Hyggestund, which happened to be my first meal in Copenhagen. It had a nice level of crowd as well as the mentioned chicken and […]

Chicken Cottage, Kilburn, London

Chicken Cottage, Kilburn, London

What’s clucking near you? Today’s review is of the Kilburn branch of the Chicken Cottage chain. Britain has such a curious obsession with these clever cut-priced eateries. It’s laughably cheap how it all is, though one must wonder how they keep those prices down. It’s a quick service restaurant, with frills in short supply. They pass those savin’s over to you.
