This month you can find us discussing new restaurants, food festivals and a solo excursions from Amen. In September we ate at 3 new restaurants Fucina – a beautiful Italian restaurant Smoking Goat –…

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…

August Eats

August Eats is the 7th vlog in our Monthly Eats video blog series, where we chat about everything we ate in the past month. From London restaurants, to food festivals, and street food, to our travels around the world! In August we ate at 4 new restaurants Duddell’s – Chinese Restaurant in London Bridge Frenchie…

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…

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…

First Impressions – Berber & Q

Berber & Q is a grill house with Middle Eastern/North African influences under railway arches in East London (E8). The restaurant takes no reservations which means there’s usually a queue, I really hate this 😤! We planned to arrive as soon as it opened for dinner (6pm) but that didn’t go to plan (my fault,…

April Eats Video Blog

This is our 4th video blog and the 3rd in our “Monthly Eats” series, where we talk about all the spots we dined at in the previous month. In April, it was 5 restaurants – Flesh & Buns, Social Eating House, Caravan Kings X, Hutong, and Pitt Cue – and also Dinerama from Street Feast,…

Pitt Cue – Solo Excursion Review

Shiima and I had plans for dinner last weekend, but Shiima was too busy to make it. Oh yes, she was too busy me lol. So, I quickly went to my list of solo restaurants (mostly sushi restaurants, tapas restaurants with limited chicken options, and barbeque restaurants) and picked the restaurant at the top of…

First Impressions – Tandoor Chop House

We love Indian cuisine and have been to 12 other restaurants. We still have plenty others to visit. I’ve always been a fan of Indian food, but it took a while to get Amen convinced as he doesn’t eat carbs and thought it was a carb overload cuisine. Finally, I managed to get him to…

Koba Review – First Impressions

We didn’t really enjoy our first experience of Korean cuisine, but I loved my solo excursion to Bo Drake. We also love BBQ food, so Koba has been on our list of restaurants to dine at for almost a year, although rather low on the list. But I was browsing through our Instagram discover page and I…

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…
