Talli Joe Review

Talli Joe is an Indian restaurant in Covent Garden that claims to be best Indian restaurant in London. We love Indian food so we were tremendously excited to eat at Talli Joe. You can’t reserve a table of 2, so we rushed over soon as Shiima was done at work. Talli Joe has a very…

Smoking Goat Review

Smoking Goat is a Thai barbecue restaurant in Shoreditch. I’d known about Smoking Goat and it’s sister restaurant, Kiln, for a while and all I heard were good things, but for whatever reason Thai cuisine wasn’t a priority of ours. But then a friend of mine went for dinner and I saw her delicious pictures…

Flesh & Buns Fitzrovia Review

Flesh & Buns is a indulgent Japanese restaurant focused on meat & seafood (flesh) and steamed fluffy bao buns. We absolutely love baos, but we love flesh & buns even more. We are regulars at Flesh & Buns Covent Garden, and it’s one of our favourite London restaurants, so we were so excited to try…

El Pirata of Mayfair Review

El Pirata of Mayfair is an authentic Spanish tapas restaurant. I love authentic Spanish tapas and tapas style restaurants so I was very enthusiastic about dinner at El Pirata of Mayfair. I’m also on the quest to find the best Spanish Tapas in London, and, of less priority, the world… as evidenced by our Foodie Adventures…

Smoke & Salt Review

Smoke & Salt is a small plates restaurant in Pop Brixton that uniquely fuses seasonal British ingredients with ancient cooking methods for a creative dining experience. I’ll say this from the start, I’m a friend of Remi Williams, on of the chefs and owners of Smoke & Salt alongside Aaron Webster, and although I believe…

Kimchee Pancras Square Review

Kimchee is an authentic Korean restaurant with two locations in central London – Kimchee Holborn, and the recently opened Kimchee Pancras Square. We’ve been to Kimchee Holborn a couple times for dinner, but our most recent visit to Kimchee Pancras Square. Our visit to Kimchee Pancras Square was impromptu, Shiima and I were in the…

Gunpowder Tower Bridge Review

Gunpowder Tower Bridge is a tapas style Indian restaurant focused on home-style authentic cooking. We dined at Gunpowder Spitafields in June and loved it, so when we found out Gunpowder was opening a new restaurant in Tower Bridge we rushed over to the soft opening. Plus, it was 50% of food 😁. Gunpowder Tower Bridge…

Smokestak Review – Solo Excursion

Smokestak is a barbecue restaurant in Shoreditch that evolved from a fantastic street food vendor at various locations such as Street Feast Dinerama and the now defunct Street Feast Dalston Yard. Shiima and I first became aware of Smokestak at Dalston Yard (one of our favourite street food locations and where I proposed ☺️). Shiima…

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…

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…

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…

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…
