Freak Scene Review

Freak Scene is an Asian small plates restaurant in Soho from Scott Hallsworth, founder of Kurobuta which we’ve really enjoyed. Freak Scene, like Kurobuta, is full of character, which is accentuated by the snug layout of the restaurant – bar seating around an open vibrant kitchen. The chefs were very friendly too. So was the…

Kym’s Review

Kym’s is a Chinese restaurant in the City from Andrew Wong, who brought us the Michelin starred A Wong in Pimlico. A Wong was one of our favourite restaurant experiences of the year because of the very creative way traditional Chinese dishes were cooked and presented and how delicious the food was. So Kym’s shot…

Lyle’s London Review

Lyle’s London is a British restaurant with an a la carte lunch menu and set suppers. Last weekend we went for lunch instead of dinner. We haven’t done lunch in a very long time and Amen found Lyle’s with a promising lunch menu as it was “Game week” which meant that I would have a…

Nest Restaurant Review

Nest is a cosy restaurant in Hackney that serves British cuisine. I’d read a lot about Nest, but what intrigued me the most about the restaurant is what scared Shiima the most. At Nest it’s about sustainability; they only use one meat in the kitchen at a time, which is impressive. Plus, it’s predominantly a…

Fucina Review

Fucina, an Italian restaurant off Baker Street – more precisely Chiltern Street. We were already stunned at how beautiful the restaurant was from the large wooden door outside, which only continued once we were inside. The restaurant is extremely beautiful, highly styled and huge. Fucina won the best UK restaurant & bar design award –…

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…

El Pirata of Mayfair Review

El Pirata of Mayfair is an authentic Spanish tapas restaurant. I love authentic Spanish tapas and tapas style restaurants so I was very enthusiastic about dinner at El Pirata of Mayfair. I’m also on the quest to find the best Spanish Tapas in London, and, of less priority, the world… as evidenced by our Foodie Adventures…

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…

Duddell’s London Review

Duddell’s is an authentic Cantonese restaurant in the historic St Thomas’s Church building right by Borough Market in London Bridge. Duddell’s started in Hong Kong and Duddell’s London is their first restaurant outside Hong Kong. We first became aware of Duddell’s London at Taste of London 2018 and it had both of my favourite dishes…
