100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

100 Wardour Street is the new form restaurant/ bar/ lounge from the previous longstanding Marquee Club and Floridita. This was all well before my time. I came across it as it was partnered with Hot Dinners for a 50% offer. Can’t see no to them […]

Shibuya Soho, Chinatown, London

Shibuya Soho, Chinatown, London

It didn’t take me long to crave Japanese food again after returning from my November Japan trip! I spied Shibuya Soho on Shaftesbury Avenue one evening and thought it looked the perfect remedy for my withdrawal. Japanese in name, but not fully in effort, this […]

Island Poké, Soho, London

Island Poké, Soho, London

The poké craze was in the midst of just kicking off in Australia when I made my move to London earlier this year. There’s a lot to like about this Hawaiian dish – light, fresh, healthy and celebrating the simplicity of its ingredients. Island Poké in Soho’s Carnaby Street is one of the chains bringing the concept to the northern hemisphere.

Gail’s Bakery, Soho, London

Gail’s Bakery, Soho, London

Gail’s Bakery is an artisan bakery chain in London. I’ve been to two of their stores and had some mixed results. It’s not the cheapest thing either. Gail’s Bakery do know their bread and they do a most excellent job of it. The name comes […]

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 […]

Chin Chin Dessert Club, Soho, London

Chin Chin Dessert Club, Soho, London

The Willy Wonka of the London dessert scene, Chin Chin exploded at Camden Market (not literally). Now they’ve since opened another store right on Greek Street in Soho. This was dangerously close to my office. I ended up doing a cheeky dessert run on a few tired afternoons.

HipChips, Soho, London

HipChips, Soho, London

An admirable concept, but it just doesn’t do anything for me. The mission objective of HipChips is fancy chips, or as you say here in the UK, crisps. But all the indulgence and fun in a packet of chips gets sucked away and replaced by […]

Tonkotsu, Soho, London

Tonkotsu, Soho, London

Tonkotsu is one of my preferred ramen joints in the city. There’s less of a crowd than say, Bone Daddies, and the location can sometimes be more convenient than the likes of Kanada-ya. I’ve frequented at both lunch and dinner times and I’ve been pleased […]

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 find it’s feet amongst the myriad of other food options about. Brunch is another, unexplored story.
