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…

Hotbox

Now, let’s talk about the food. As I mentioned earlier, I love the beef rib, it literally falls off the bone. I was raised eating very seasoned food, so ordinarily that’s my preference, but this beef rib isn’t seasoned that much, it’s just right, and it comes with a mini jug of BBQ sauce on the side. Tastes so good, it’s the best dish here for me.
