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…

Chai Wu

A few weeks ago we went for dinner at Chai Wu, a contemporary Chinese restaurant in Harrods – Knightsbridge. We’ve been a couple times before and we always forget the long trek through the different floors of luxury all the way up to the fifth floor where Chai Wu is tucked away. The restaurant oozes…

First Impressions – Sakagura

Sakagura is morden Japanese restaurant off Regent Street that prides itself in serving “Washoku”, which is essentially traditional Japanese food – lots of sushi and miso dishes. I came across Sakagura last year while searching for restaurants to go on a solo excursion. The menu looked rather promising with quite a few chicken dishes, so…

First Impressions – Flesh & Buns

Flesh & Buns is one of the offshoot restaurants of Bone Daddies, which initially started as a Ramen Bar and has now flourished into a bona fide London staple with several restaurants across (mostly central, to be fair) London. They focus on Japanese cuisine, but less sushi and more indulgent and somewhat innovative Japanese dishes…

First Impressions – Patara Fine Thai Cuisine

I hope everyone over here in the UK has been enjoying the sunny weather last week, I know I was but not so much for Amen, he doesn’t like the sun, actually took an umbrella with him for shade when we went to the park lol. Last week we dined at another new restaurant for…

Sasa Sushi

To start with, I’m going to declare that I love Sasa Sushi, I love everything about it, especially the food and the family that run it. But, I promise I’ll be objective ☺️ I was introduced to Sasa Sushi by a friend, to whom I’ll always be grateful, during the burgeoning stage of my love affair…

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.
