Frenchie Covent Garden Review

Frenchie is an elegant French restaurant in Covent Garden that’s classed as a “modern Brasserie”. Inexplicably, Shiima and I had never tried French cuisine, so were very excited about Frenchie Covent Garden, especially because the menu has a lot of intriguing dishes and the Frenchie restaurant group comes with much renown. Frenchie Covent Garden is…

July Eats is the 6th vlog in our Monthly Eats video blog series. We went to 7 restaurants in July, 4 of which were new restaurants which we also reviewed last month. The new restaurants were Modern Pantry, Park Chinois, Suvlaki, and Bombay Bustle, and the old favourites were Bao Fitzrovia, Dozo Soho, and Shiima’s best…

Duddell’s London Review

Duddell’s is an authentic Cantonese restaurant in the historic St Thomas’s Church building right by Borough Market in London Bridge. Duddell’s started in Hong Kong and Duddell’s London is their first restaurant outside Hong Kong. We first became aware of Duddell’s London at Taste of London 2018 and it had both of my favourite dishes…

Bombay Bustle Review

Bombay Bustle is an authentic Indian restaurant on Maddox Street in Mayfair specialising in Mumbai’s diverse home style cooking. We first came across Bombay Bustle while walking to Black Roe and were really intrigued by the menu. Then again at Taste 2018 and our interest was peaked. We went for dinner on a Monday and…

Suvlaki Soho Review – First Impressions

Suvlaki is an authentic Greek restaurant that specialises in Greek street food. A couple of weeks ago, a Greek friend of my dad recommended Suvlaki to me because of its authenticity and also because he knew how much I love tapas style restaurants. Suvlaki has two restaurants – in Shoreditch and Soho. We chose Soho…

Park Chinois Review – First Impressions

Park Chinois is a Chinese restaurant in the heart of Mayfair. Shiima and I had walked past its red doors several times on our way to other Mayfair restaurants but we had no idea it was even a restaurant – seemed more like a private members club. We’d also been hearing a ton about Park…

June Eats

June Eats is the 5th vlog in our Monthly Eats video blog series. This month we went to 6 restaurants – 4 which are first impressions and a food festival – Taste of London. We kicked of June with Sasa Sushi – Amen’s favourite sushi spot. We also went to another one of Amen’s favourites which…

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…
