The Modern Pantry Review – First Impressions

The Modern Pantry is an elegant restaurant in Clerkenwell with fuses everyday cooking with modern ingredients. It’s modern European cuisine from a renowned Kiwi chef, so it’s far from the norm. The Modern Pantry is another one of our Taste of London Festival revelations and after looking through their menu at the festival we were…

Brigadiers – First Impressions

Last Saturday on Instagram I came a scrumptious picture of sliders from a restaurant called Brigadiers. I’d never heard of Brigadiers, so I quickly clicked through to the restaurant and I was completely taken by the food. I was even more enamoured by the pictures/videos geotagged to the location. After a bit more sleuthing I…

Belgo – First Impressions

On Thursday we watched Belgium beat England and realised we’d never tried Belgian Cuisine. So we thought to give it a try ASAP! After some research, Belgo seemed like the best spot for a First Impression. Belgo is a Belgian restaurant that opened in London before Shiima was born, and now has several restaurants across…

Yosma – First Impressions Review

Yosma is an upmarket Turkish restaurant on Baker Street in Marylebone with a really good reputation for traditional Turkish cuisine, especially from their mangal – open charcoal grill. Shiima and I were very intrigued by Turkish cuisine as we’ve never tried it, and our interest was peaked by Yosma’s menu at Taste of London 2018….

First Impressions – A Wong

We went to A Wong for our Eid Dinner on Friday, and we were really late for our reservation but luckily they were still able to accommodate. I know I wouldn’t hear the last of it from Amen if they didn’t. A Wong is a Chinese restaurant in Pimlico by Andrew Wong. Amen had this…

Ikoyi – Second Thought Review

Ikoyi is a fusion restaurant that blends West African ingredients (Nigerian, primarily) with Western cuisine for very a unique fine dining experience. Last summer I went to Ikoyi for the first time and wrote a First Impression review. As a Nigerian I was incredibly excited about a fine dining Nigerian restaurant in ST JAMES MARKET,…

May Eats

May Eats is the 4th is our Monthly Eats video blog series. May is a big month for us because it’s both our Birthday Month so a lot of celebration! We ate at seven restaurants. A couple favourites – Chotto Matte for Amen’s birthday, Novikov Asian for Shiima’s – and five new restaurants Berber &…

Gunpowder – First Impressions

Gunpowder is a cosy tapas-style Indian restaurant in Spitafields. I’d been hearing about Gunpowder for a while, but that still didn’t prepare me for how “cosy” the restaurant is, and also how truly special the food is. Cosy in the context of Gunpowder means a few things, the cooking seems homely, the restaurant is really…

Black Roe – First Impressions

Black Roe serves Hawaiian inspired food and is the sister restaurant to our favourite Chotto Matte. We definitely had to drop by to see if it matched up to our all-time fave. The restaurant When you step inside, its low lit with a poke bar on one side by the entrance, the bar on the…

Iberica Marylebone – First Impressions

Iberica is a Spanish tapas restaurant with locations across UK. I love tapas and I’ve been on a quest to find the best tapas restaurant in London for over two years now. Plus, I find that tapas style restaurants are best for group dining. So when Shiima, a couple of my siblings, and I wanted…
