February Eats 2019

This month we spoke about three NEW restaurants. Some we really enjoyed and others we were really disappointed, find out which they are in our February Eats 2019 video.

Cinnamon Bazaar Review

Cinnamon Bazaar is a vibrant modern Indian restaurant in Covent Garden. Cinnamon Bazaar is part of the Cinnamon Collection, which is a group of splendid Indian restaurants around London. We dined at Cinnamon Soho in 2017 and added all the other Cinnamon restaurant to our list… but since then Cinnamon Bazaar is our first. Cinnamon…

Cantina Laredo Review

Cantina Laredo is a vibrant Mexican restaurant in Covent Garden. Cantina Laredo is huge, so forgive our video below which couldn’t take in the entirety of the restaurant from where we sat. The décor and the vibe of the restaurant is modern; and we really enjoyed the contemporary Mexican music. We dined on a Saturday…

Sushi Samba – Covent Garden

Sushi Samba (Liverpool Street) is one of our favourites and we were super excited to see it had opened one in Covent Garden. Amen had booked it for a few weeks ago but we had to keep rescheduling because of my changing schedule. Sushi Samba works perfectly for us, Amen loves the sushi and I…

Clos Maggiore Review

Clos Maggiore is a contemporary French restaurant in Covent Garden that was voted the most romantic restaurant in the world in 2016 and the most romantic restaurant in London many times. I imagine your first question is, “really? is it?” I’ll get to that 😊. Shiima found Clos Maggiore and she was really excited to…

Talli Joe Review

Talli Joe is an Indian restaurant in Covent Garden that claims to be best Indian restaurant in London. We love Indian food so we were tremendously excited to eat at Talli Joe. You can’t reserve a table of 2, so we rushed over soon as Shiima was done at work. Talli Joe has a very…

Frenchie Covent Garden Review

Frenchie is an elegant French restaurant in Covent Garden that’s classed as a “modern Brasserie”. Inexplicably, Shiima and I had never tried French cuisine, so were very excited about Frenchie Covent Garden, especially because the menu has a lot of intriguing dishes and the Frenchie restaurant group comes with much renown. Frenchie Covent Garden is…

The Barbary Review – First Impressions

I’ve been aware of The Barbary, a very highly acclaimed Michelin starred restaurant in Covent Garden serving cuisine from the Barbary Coast (Northern Africa) to Israel, since dining solo at The Palomar, their sister restaurant. I was really keen on going to The Barbary, but I didn’t think the menu had much on it for…

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…

Solo Excursion – Barrafina Drury Lane

So today, after my day was done, I suddenly decided to take a quick detour to Barrafina Drury Lane, which is in Covent Garden, and oh am I so pleased with myself. So much that I’m writing this post on my iPhone while still sat at Barrafina waiting for my last dish. If you want…

Barrafina Adelaide Street

Barrafina was always intended to be a solo excursions post because forever I couldn’t convince Shiima to come along with me as the menu looked scary to her haha! So, a couple weeks ago Shiima had Christmas dinner plans with her friends and I decided to take that opportunity to go on a solo excursion….

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…
