First Impressions – StreetXO London

Recently I’ve been letting Amen choose the restaurant without having me look at the menu. On some occasions, he’s done awful but he is getting better lol. I had no idea what StreetXO would be like or what the cuisine is, but I was willing to give it a go. The only thing he told…

First Impressions – Chicks ‘n’ Sours Seven Dials

I love chicken, which is good for me because it’s pretty much the only meat I eat. Amen loves chicken too, but he loves everything lol. He’s not that into fried chicken though, but I think that’s mostly because he’s a fitness freak. He didn’t agree to deep frying chicken wings at home until I…

First Impressions – Social Wine and Tapas

Our first restaurant review of the year is Social Wine and Tapas, which we dined at late last year. I love tapas restaurants and Shiima doesn’t mind them, long as the restaurant has dishes she’d enjoy. Usually though, tapas restaurants don’t so I end up going for a solo excursion. But the social wine and…

Top 10 Restaurants in London 2017

Over the past few days we have written about our Top 10 Chicken Dishes in London, Top 10 Sushi Dishes in London, Top 10 Dishes in London, Top 10 Desserts in London, and now we finish with our Top 10 Restaurants in London. In 2017, we reviewed 49 London restaurants and ate at many more…

Top 10 Desserts in London 2017

We both unquestionably have a sweet tooth, that’s partly why we attempt to kill ourselves in the gym lol. But because of that sweet tooth we’ve had so many desserts this year, at least once a week. I must say that we are partial to cheesecakes … it’s the first thing we look for on…

Top 10 Dishes in London 2017

Shiima and I dine out about twice a week on average, so that’s certainly over a hundred dinners, brunches, and breakfasts in 2017. It wasn’t easy at all to come up with a list of Top 10 Dishes in London, cos as you might know Shiima only eats chicken (read her Top 10 Chicken Dishes)…

Top 10 Sushi Dishes in London 2017

This list is all Amen, because as you might know he is a self-diagnosed sushi fiend, which could’ve been a problem for our relationship because Shiima doesn’t eat fish and detests seaweed lol. But luckily for us, most good Japanese restaurants have adequate to spectacular chicken dishes (check out Shiima’s Top 10 chicken dishes in…

Top 10 Chicken Dishes in London 2017

This year, we’ve reviewed close to 50 restaurants (49 to be exact) and have eaten at many more than those 49, and we think this a fair sample size to write shortlists to end a really good year for us. Over the coming weeks, we’d write a few lists, which will culminate in our top…

Tamarind Kitchen – First Impressions

Tamarind Kitchen is an Indian restaurant in Soho. A few weeks ago, after dinner at The Duck and Rice, we came across Tamarind Kitchen on our way to Tottenham Court Road station. The restaurant looked really interesting from the outside so we stopped to look at the menu by the door. The menu peaked my interest,…

Rok Shoreditch – Solo Excursion

Rok is a smokehouse that perfectly blends Northern Europe (predominantly Scandinavian) barbeque techniques with British meat. If that description wets your appetite even an inch, you’d enjoy Rok. A good friend of mine told me about Rok Shoreditch last year, couldn’t stop talking about it. I checked the menu, but it was a lot of…

First Impressions – M Threadneedle Street

M Threadneedle street is a multi award-winning grill restaurant in the City. It’s a fairly large establishment which also houses a cocktail bar, a members’ den and private dining rooms. The restaurant is by Martin Williams – the M stands for Martin – who was previously at Gaucho steakhouse. The restaurant décor is luxuriously modern….

The Duck and Rice

The Duck & Rice is a Cantonese restaurant and pub in Soho. There are two levels to The Duck and Rice – a very bustling pub on the ground floor and an equally bustling restaurant on the top floor. As you’d expect, we only care for the restaurant. We’ve dined at The Duck and Rice…
