First Impressions – Pachamama

Amen mentions we are going to Pachamama for dinner last week, no ifs or buts. This was the first time I’ve heard of the restaurant and I tend to look at the menu prior but he was adamant that there were plenty of dishes for me to enjoy. I trusted him and we headed over…

First Impressions – Jamavar

Jamavar is an upmarket Indian restaurant in Mayfair that opened within the past year, but has already built a very good reputation. Shiima and I first came across Jamavar at Taste of London 2017, when I had their utterly delicious Malabar Chicken Wings. Then a couple weeks ago, Jamavar was featured on Celebrity Masterchef. The…

First Impressions – Coppa Club

We haven’t been to any new breakfast/brunch in a while, hence why we haven’t written about any. But I saw a few friends go to Coppa Club on my Instagram and I was intrigued since it looked beautiful in the pictures. I checked the menu out, it looked pretty good so I went ahead and…

First Impressions – Vanilla Black

Shiima and I are not vegetarian or vegan. But then Shiima is really particular about what meat she eats (only chicken and beef burgers), and she very rarely eats fish (tempura shrimp and fried squid), so she’s not too far off lol. I, on the other hand, eat anything, long as it’s prepared with care….

First Impressions – Maze Grill Mayfair

For a while now, I’ve had it in mind to visit one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. He is Shiima’s favourite TV chef (she loves Kitchen Nightmares) and I really like him as well. We didn’t have the best of experiences at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal so we really weren’t in a rush to visit another…

First Impressions – MNKY HSE

MNKY HSE is a restaurant I’ve heard people mention before but I thought it was just one of those hyped places. But I came across it again and this time I actually had a look at the menu. I was already intrigued when I saw it is Latin American, but the tricky part was to…

First Impressions – Nobu Shoreditch

Shiima and I absolutely love Nobu. We’ve had dinner at Nobu Berkeley Street on several occasions, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, Eid, and New Year’s Eve. That ought to tell you something about Nobu … it’s a restaurant reserved for special occasions, and they know it. Nobu is a renowned international Japanese and Peruvian restaurant. Recently, when…

First Impressions – Hoppers

If you want to see the delicious pictures from Hoppers then scroll down to the bottom of this post, but for the rest of you foodies we hope you enjoy our Hoppers London review. If someone told me I would be waiting an hour and half for a table and then another half hour to…

First Impressions – Ikoyi

First time I heard about Ikoyi was three weeks ago in conversation with a really good friend originally from Nigeria, who was talking about going with his girlfriend, but he wasn’t really intrigued by the menu. I’d never heard of Ikoyi, but I, on the other hand, was really intrigued – an upmarket Nigerian Restaurant…

Solo Excursion – Lobos Meat & Tapas

I have long since declared my affection for tapas. So when, after enjoying a lovely dinner at Chotto Matte with Shiima, I saw Lobos Meat & Tapas across the street, I was intrigued … very intrigued, especially with Meat in the restaurant’s name, which filled me with excitement, as I love my meat/fish. I asked…

First Impressions – Boa Fitzrovia

Bao is a tapas style Taiwanese restaurant with a focus on utterly delicious steamed fluffy bao buns. We’ve been aware of Bao for a while now, as last year we walked past the Fitzrovia restaurant on our way to Crazy Bear Fitzrovia but we were reminded of Bao when we took a different route to Oliver…

Solo Excursion – Salt Yard

I very recently fell in love with Spanish tapas through Barrafina, but Shiima isn’t as enamoured with Spanish tapas as I am, which made it the perfect cuisine for my solo excursions. A couple months back I went to Ember Yard and I really enjoyed it, so I decided to pay a visit to the…
