Caravan Kings Cross – First Impressions Review

A couple of years ago we went to Grain Store (now sadly closed) in Granary Square King’s Cross for dinner and we came across Caravan Kings Cross. We had a quick look at the menu, and it was intriguing enough so we immediately added it to our list. But for reason it kept getting pushed…

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…

Breddos Soho – First Impressions

Breddos is a Mexican restaurant serving Tacos, Tostadas and other Mexican food & drinks. We first tried Breddos at Street Feast Dalston Yard and we absolutely loved it. It was the one thing we knew we’d have every time we went to Dalston yard. Naturally, we were super excited to find out they had opened…

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…

Bread Street Kitchen – First Impressions

Bread Street Kitchen has been on our list for months since we went to Maze Grill Mayfair, which is another of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. We enjoyed Maze Grill so much we added all of Gordon Ramsay’s London restaurants to our list. Bread Street Kitchen is a vibrant restaurant prominently located in One New Change in…

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 – Chicks ‘n’ Sours Seven Dials

I love chicken, which is good for me because it’s pretty much the only meat I eat. Amen loves chicken too, but he loves everything lol. He’s not that into fried chicken though, but I think that’s mostly because he’s a fitness freak. He didn’t agree to deep frying chicken wings at home until I…

Tamarind Kitchen – First Impressions

Tamarind Kitchen is an Indian restaurant in Soho. A few weeks ago, after dinner at The Duck and Rice, we came across Tamarind Kitchen on our way to Tottenham Court Road station. The restaurant looked really interesting from the outside so we stopped to look at the menu by the door. The menu peaked my interest,…

The Duck and Rice

The Duck & Rice is a Cantonese restaurant and pub in Soho. There are two levels to The Duck and Rice – a very bustling pub on the ground floor and an equally bustling restaurant on the top floor. As you’d expect, we only care for the restaurant. We’ve dined at The Duck and Rice…

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 – Pachamama

Amen mentions we are going to Pachamama for dinner last week, no ifs or buts. This was the first time I’ve heard of the restaurant and I tend to look at the menu prior but he was adamant that there were plenty of dishes for me to enjoy. I trusted him and we headed over…

Solo Excursion – Dinings Marylebone

Dinings is a special Japanese tapas restaurant with locations in Marylebone, SW3, and Tel Aviv, with the restaurant on Harcourt Street in Marylebone being the original and “flagship” restaurant. To dine at Dinings is an experience that all lovers of sushi must try at least one. Every single dish I had was so really good…
