Yosma – First Impressions Review

Yosma is an upmarket Turkish restaurant on Baker Street in Marylebone with a really good reputation for traditional Turkish cuisine, especially from their mangal – open charcoal grill. Shiima and I were very intrigued by Turkish cuisine as we’ve never tried it, and our interest was peaked by Yosma’s menu at Taste of London 2018….

Ikoyi – Second Thought Review

Ikoyi is a fusion restaurant that blends West African ingredients (Nigerian, primarily) with Western cuisine for very a unique fine dining experience. Last summer I went to Ikoyi for the first time and wrote a First Impression review. As a Nigerian I was incredibly excited about a fine dining Nigerian restaurant in ST JAMES MARKET,…

May Eats

May Eats is the 4th is our Monthly Eats video blog series. May is a big month for us because it’s both our Birthday Month so a lot of celebration! We ate at seven restaurants. A couple favourites – Chotto Matte for Amen’s birthday, Novikov Asian for Shiima’s – and five new restaurants Berber &…

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…

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…
