Gunpowder – First Impressions

Gunpowder is a cosy tapas-style Indian restaurant in Spitafields. I’d been hearing about Gunpowder for a while, but that still didn’t prepare me for how “cosy” the restaurant is, and also how truly special the food is. Cosy in the context of Gunpowder means a few things, the cooking seems homely, the restaurant is really…

First Impressions – Berber & Q

Berber & Q is a grill house with Middle Eastern/North African influences under railway arches in East London (E8). The restaurant takes no reservations which means there’s usually a queue, I really hate this 😤! We planned to arrive as soon as it opened for dinner (6pm) but that didn’t go to plan (my fault,…

Pitt Cue – Solo Excursion Review

Shiima and I had plans for dinner last weekend, but Shiima was too busy to make it. Oh yes, she was too busy me lol. So, I quickly went to my list of solo restaurants (mostly sushi restaurants, tapas restaurants with limited chicken options, and barbeque restaurants) and picked the restaurant at the top of…

Hutong Review

Hutong is a prestigious Chinese restaurant on the 33rdlevel of The Shard. It’s one of the three upscale restaurants at The Shard, with Aqua Shard and Oblix. We’ve dined at all three of the restaurants and written about Oblix. Hutong has been our favourite of the three (we even spent NYE 2017 at their bar)…

March Eats

It’s been a month already!? Well, this is our second video blog and we’ve been to 7 restaurants this week. It was quite a packed month and we were at restaurants right till the last day of March. Our usual first impressions restaurant as well as others with friends. We hope you enjoy and if…

Duck and Waffle

Shiima and I had our first “date” at Duck and Waffle close to five years ago. Date being in quotes because I’d booked dinner at Duck & Waffle, but she thought it was a tad too highfalutin to be the first place we hung out… she wanted somewhere more casual, so we went for an…

Rok Shoreditch – Solo Excursion

Rok is a smokehouse that perfectly blends Northern Europe (predominantly Scandinavian) barbeque techniques with British meat. If that description wets your appetite even an inch, you’d enjoy Rok. A good friend of mine told me about Rok Shoreditch last year, couldn’t stop talking about it. I checked the menu, but it was a lot of…

Taste Of London: The Festive Edition

Last night, we went to Taste of London Festive Edition at Tobacco Docks. We went to Taste of London at Regents Park in the summer and loved it, so we were really excited about the Festive Edition. We bought our tickets immediately it became available. First, Tobacco Docks is a tad difficult for us to…

First Impressions – Coppa Club

We haven’t been to any new breakfast/brunch in a while, hence why we haven’t written about any. But I saw a few friends go to Coppa Club on my Instagram and I was intrigued since it looked beautiful in the pictures. I checked the menu out, it looked pretty good so I went ahead and…

Ping Pong – Stratford Westfield

PING PONG STRATFORD WESTFIELD HAS SADLY NOW CLOSED.  We eat out at Westfield Stratford a fair bit and one of our favourite restaurants is the Chinese Dim Sum restaurant Ping Pong. The Stratford branch is one of eight branches across London. Ping Pong serves a selection of small bite-sized dishes (“tapas” style), which are steamed,…

First was Dinerama (have a read here if you missed it), which is one of the Street Feast locations, and this post is on another Street Feast location, Hawker House in Canada Water. Little update – Dalston Yard, the first street feast location we…

First Impressions ~ Dirty Bones Shoreditch

Last Friday our restaurant choice for dinner was Dirty Bones, which is a restaurant serving American inspired cuisine. There are three Dirty Bones restaurants across London, but on Friday we went to the Shoreditch restaurant, which is a couple minutes away from Shoreditch High Street Station. It initially wasn’t our intention to go to the…
