Jinjuu

If you like Korean food, or are looking to try it, there is possibly nowhere better to head in London that will give you deliciousness in a great environment, at an amazing price. Jinjuu means ‘pearl’ in Korean, and it certainly is a gem! Opened in Soho in 2015, I have been meaning to get around to it for a… Read more →

California Road Trip!

I have been to California numerous times in my life, as my sister moved there when I was young. So I grew up visiting great spots like Manhattan Beach, Disneyland and Universal Studios – any young kid’s dream. As it came to planning our next holiday, I really wanted to take ze German to Las Vegas, as he wasn’t convinced… Read more →

Steak of the Art

I have been hoarding a few Bristol hotspots, to write a single article on the city that I frequent now and then for work. But after a particularly delicious evening the other week I have decided just to share what I have and do a guide later! After a long work day I agreed to meet colleagues for dinner at… Read more →

Burmese Pop-Up

Saturday night, I was invited by Mrs Jonas to join her for a fabulous Burma Street Kitchen pop up in Hackney. I have eaten Burmese food only once, during our trip to Chiang Mai last year, and it was delicious. So I was keen to try it again when Mrs J told me she had won some tickets and  her last… Read more →

Chotto Matte

Last Friday, I finally got to try out Chotto Matte in Soho! Where to begin? The restaurant opened in September 2013 and I have been dying to get there and sample the Nikkei cuisine on offer, for some time. So what is Nikkei? It is the culinary fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cultures. Apparently Peru has the second largest Japanese… Read more →

Hixter City

Let me start as I mean to go on – I really like this place! A Hubcaps club night out always means a good dinner and drinks with great company. For our pre-christmas meeting we chose the new-ish Hixter City, located in the hidden gem near Liverpool Street that is Devonshire Square. The concept is nice and simple – chicken… Read more →

Polpo Smithfield

A perfect spot between Great Portland Street and Moorgate for Holly Golightly and I to have a BFF ‘ladies that lunch’ moment during a working week. We walked around the area to see what we fancied and settled with Polpo – we were not disappointed! Polpo in Smithfield is a little hidden gem. Located on Cowcross street, the exterior is… Read more →

Tredwell’s

Marcus Wareing’s newest opening sits on St Martin’s Lane in Covent Garden, on the former site of Japanese restaurant Kyashii, which most people don’t seem to remember. It is opposite famous London landmarks like Dishoom and Stringfellows. Tredwell’s is cleverly named after a butler in Agatha Christie’s novel The Seven Dials Mystery. I was really very excited to hear about this newcomer to… Read more →

And if you are all hooked up, then no… Read more →

I have put a few key things here that you can pick and choose from, as I am sure you will find other things to do as you wander (as in the best vacations!) and ultimately have a… Read more →
