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…

First Impressions – Temper City

I don’t quite remember how I became aware of Temper, but I’ve known about the restaurant for a while. Temper is a BBQ and open fire pit restaurant from Neil Rankin, a chef famous for his BBQ mastery. I’d looked at Temper Soho menu a few times, and decided to go with friends, as the…

First Impressions – Señor Ceviche

I’ve been aware of Señor Ceviche for a while now, but the name led me to believe that there wouldn’t be much on offer for Shiima, because she doesn’t like fish so Ceviche would be a step too far. But we came across Senor Ceviche at Taste Of London. Although I didn’t quite enjoy the dish…

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 – Shotgun BBQ

THIS RESTAURANT HAS SADLY BEEN CLOSED I first heard about Shotgun BBQ a while ago while I was doing a real deep restaurant search to create a list for us to go to. But we never managed to get to it and recently Amen heard of the restaurant somewhere and now he will claim he…

First Impressions- Barbecoa

Another ‘first impressions’ post, I expect we will have a few of these as I have a list of restaurants for us to go to, 22 restaurants so far. This means I have to be going extra hard at the gym – CARDIO, ugh. – But for Amen he already goes pretty much everyday and…
