Chiltern Firehouse – First Impressions Review

Chiltern Firehouse comes with an esteemed reputation, mostly because of its clientele and ostentatious aura, which includes difficulty to get a reservation. Shiima and I are cool with all those. Actually, we enjoy it because it makes for a more entertaining experience. But all that quickly becomes a detriment if the food isn’t up to…

Xu London – First Impressions Review

Our first experience of Taiwanese cuisine was last year at Bao Fitzrovia and we loved it (more me than Shiima though). We went to Bao Fitz again earlier this year and we enjoyed it even more. I appreciate that Bao is unique, but the enjoyment of the food sent me on a quest to try…

February Eats

We are starting a series of video blogs talking about all the restaurants and food events we went to in the past month. First up is February and it was a very busy month. It’s a lot of food, but then we love to eat! Enjoy! 🙂 Want to read as well? Follow these links…

Kiru – First Impressions

I love sushi, but we haven’t been to a new Japanese restaurant in months because I have exhausted all the Japanese restaurants around us. All that’s left is West London, which is far! Lol. I’d come across quite a few Japanese restaurants in West London but there was always something missing (most of them just…

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…

Rok Shoreditch – Solo Excursion

ROK HAS SADLY PERMANENTLY CLOSED 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…

Solo Excursion – Barrafina Dean Street

As will be obvious if you’ve read my previous posts on Barrafina Adeliade Street and Barrafina Drury Lane, I love Barrafina. And now I’ve finally dined at the Dean Street restaurant in Soho, which was the only Barrafina I hadn’t been to. As a refresher, Barrafina is a Michelin starred Spanish tapas restaurant with only…

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 – The Palomar

For months now I’ve been trying to convince Shiima to come with me to The Palomar. My pitch was that The Palomar is a Middle Eastern restaurant and Shiima is half Middle Eastern (Saudi). But that fell like a lead balloon once she looked at the menu. Because evidently Saudi food is VERY different from…
