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 →

Shanghai Blues

Shanghai Blues in Holborn is an absolute gem! I had walked past the relatively quiet doorway a few times over the years, not thinking too much about what lay inside. My friend JimBob is an expert on Chinese food, and she had told me a couple of times it was a good find, so that coupled with a timely Groupon voucher… Read more →

Great British Burger Wars #3 – Hawksmoor

I have heard a lot of great things about Hawksmoor and the amazing steaks and burgers. So yesterday lunchtime, after an incredibly long slog of a week I decided it was time for a TrEat. Mr Old Fashioned and I racked our brains for what was close and easy. I wanted a burger and nothing nearby was seeming appealing, when… Read more →

Langan’s Brasserie

Ze German and I have had a hectic travel schedule this year. During one of our more busy weeks, he decided to pick a spot for an early dinner after work and before the airport, so we could say a civilised goodbye before he flew off to the next city. Looking for a place to meet and eat between the… Read more →

The Masterchef Pop-Up

I am sure you have all been avidly watching Masterchef over the last few years and salivating over the amazing looking dishes, rooting for the great talent, and wondering when you might be able to sample some of these goodies too! Well this year for the very first time, Masterchef decided to open a pop-up restaurant in London. What a rush… Read more →

Authentic Turkish at Tas Pide

If you are looking for somewhere near the Thames to have a stroll and some authentic, delicious Turkish food – look no further than Tas Pide near Southbank. Although this restaurant is part of a chain, it does not feel like it. Hidden in the street next to Shakespeare’s Globe, with cute tables outside and beautifully blooming jasmine that gives… Read more →

Kerb Southbank

Every weekend this summer, the amazing food-marketeers of Kerb are setting up shop at the beautiful Southbank Centre in London. 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 →

Great British Burger Wars #2 – Honest Burgers

Walking around Soho last weekend with ze German for the first time in ages, I was feeling carefree and like we were dating again. The sun was shining, Alice in Wonderland was running through Soho square, some guys were getting married at the church… it was London at its finest. From the moment we left our place and headed across… 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 →
