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 →

Taste of Winter 2014

816 and I headed to check out Taste of Winter at Tobacco Dock on its opening day this week. Having spent a magical evening at Taste of London earlier this year in Regent’s Park, we were very excited to see what this seasonal event would bring! Arriving at Tobacco Dock is perhaps not the easiest, but worth it as Wapping… Read more →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Pandan Leaf, Godalming

Just a 45 minute train journey from London Waterloo, is the beautiful Surrey village of Godalming. Here you will find pretty cobbled streets, a village church which in the summer you will often see covered in bunting and hosting the most quaint English garden weddings, as well as a number of local shops to wander around.   One of these lovely establishments,… 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 →

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 →
