Eneko at One Aldwych

In the last few years there has been an influx of Basque cuisine and chefs to London. Most notably the opening of Ametsa at The Halkin which is an offshoot of the 3 michelin star Arzak. Now, we have another exciting opening, Eneko at One Aldwych. This opening is the vision of Eneko Atxa, another fabulous Basque chef from 3 starred… Read more →

Lotus Floating Restaurant

Lotus Floating Restaurant has been a staple in the heart of the Docklands since before I knew where the docklands were (pre 2005)! When Canary Wharf was nothing but a few office buildings and cafes, this has been the go-to Chinese of choice for locals to get authentic food. If you can ever imagine that Canary Wharf was not the… Read more →

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 →

Black Roe

Opened in March, Black Roe poke bar & grill (pronounced po-kay), is the new venture behind the brilliant minds at one of my favourites, Chotto Matte: Kurt Zdesar (of Ping Pong fame). The restaurant is hidden away on tiny Mill Street just behind the hustle and bustle of New Bond Street in Mayfair. Formerly the site was home to ‘demon chef’… Read more →

Tom’s Kitchen Canary Wharf

I was always determined that for me ‘turning 30’ wouldn’t be this awful thing that everyone dreaded. And when I turned 30, I think I possibly celebrated more times than the queen! Starting with a night out in Amsterdam (Awards event at the Koepelkerk, Champagne at the Okura, Dancing like maniacs at Air), followed by a best friends wedding, a… Read more →

Angler

Angler is a discreet, lovely restaurant above the fabulous South Place Hotel, near London’s Liverpool Street station in the heart of the city. Having spent much time in the bar downstairs, I finally got to try the michelin starred delight twice in a month! Both times taking some very special people (you know who you are!). I was delighted to… Read more →

INK

INK restaurant in the up and coming Bethnal Green area, is going places. From the beginning when I booked, I was not sold… I found the restaurant as a very good Groupon deal, and the food looked too pretty to ignore, but I had my doubts. Especially when I had some booking problems, my pessimistic side was preparing me for… 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 →

The Landmark London

Recently I visited The Landmark hotel near Baker Street in London. It is a beautiful location in the heart of touristy hubbub land. 10 minutes walk down the road gets you to Madam Tussauds, which I thankfully only remember from my childhood (funny memory: when my sister asked me to ask the policeman the time and he was actually a waxwork. Hilarious!). The… 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 →
