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…

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…

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…

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 – 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…

Sexy Fish

Last Sunday we made a last minute dinner reservation to celebrate Eid – we hope all that celebrate Eid had a lovely day! I booked Sexy Fish a couple days before and they were quite a few available times, so despite what everyone says that its quite difficult to get a booking, its not always…

Solo Excursion – Bó Drake

For my latest solo excursion, I decided on Bó Drake, which as the name suggests is a fusion of East Asian cuisine with Western BBQ influences. It’s located on Greek Street in Soho, which is a stone’s throw from Tottenham Court Road Station. I’d initially reserved the restaurant for Shiima and I, but Shiima’s schedule…

First Impressions – Crazy Bear Restaurant

The Crazy Bear in Fitzrovia is a place I’ve always wanted to go. Years ago, I was enthralled by pictures of the bar I saw online and I really wanted to go. Yes, I don’t drink, but I like bars, love the atmosphere lol. I didn’t end up going though. But years later, while restaurant…

Novikov Asian

First I ever heard (read, in this case) of Novikov was from a piece by Jay Raynor, the Observer’s food critic. From what I can remember of the piece (yeah, I know, it’s 2016, I could just Google the article … but nahhh 😝), his sentiments were essentially that Novikov was a pretentious overpriced restaurant…
