Zaika of Kensington

Last night, ze German and I went to check out Zaika of Kensington on the opening night of its soft-launch. Zaika (aptly meaning ‘Taste’), originally opened in 1999 in a beautiful former bank building from the 1800s, that it still occupies. In 2012, the Tamarind group took over the venue. It has since been refurbished and now set to open… Read more →

Duck & Waffle

The Waffley Duck… one of my favourite spots in the heart of the City of London. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for a spot to entertain clients, host an event, have a special couple’s night, friends’ catch up, or completely wasted and realise at some point that you need to eat – the Duck and Waffle somehow has… Read more →

Great British Burger Wars #4 – Boisdale CW

One of my absolute favourite places in the world has to be London-based Scottish restaurant and bar, Boisdale, in Canary Wharf. It opened about five years ago and immediately I was very excited. There are so many stories I could tell you that have occurred here, it is a memorable spot for me, but instead I will keep my dignity and… Read more →

MIA in Miami

Miami – the place where the sun shines forever, everyone looks hot and neon pink is king. Having been lucky enough to spend time in Miami twice now, I can say that it’s a really cool place. I am sure you already knew that, but I probably wasn’t so convinced by international DJs and Hollywood, until I actually went there… Read more →

What a rush… Read more →

Kerb’s usual home is in the regenerating Kings Cross, but this summer we have the pleasure of their company in one of London’s most loved locations. You can pop along Friday – Sunday at the times below to sample the best of… Read more →

Glorious Goodwood

Goodwood is absolutely in its own right absolutely glorious. Each year when I have had the great opportunity to visit as a guest of a firm that I work with, the sun has been shining and the English countryside has never looked more radiant. It makes you understand why poets have written about this so passionately. (image courtesy of So what… Read more →

Dining @ DSTRKT

Friday night, heading to the spot to be in terms of west end clubbing today… this is not the norm for me any longer! Getting in to my 30’s, I find that often convenience takes place of high heels and short skirts, so these nights are few and far between. Long gone are the days when we had to shop… Read more →

Spice Market LDN

July 2014: London town is sizzling and so is Spice Market‘s tasting menu! Having fallen in love with the salmon sashimi on warm crunchy rice with chipotle emulsion at Taste London last month, 816 and I had to come and test out the rest of the menu to see if it could all possibly be equally as delicious as that… Read more →
