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…

Hawksmoor Spitalfields Review

Hawksmoor is a British steak restaurant with several restaurant across the UK. We went to the Spitalfields restaurant and I was quick to point out that it’s a very beautiful and spacious restaurant. Its low lit, elegant and intimate. Have a look at a quick video of the restaurant to see for yourself: So, when…

Mei Ume Review

Mei Ume is an elegant restaurant in the Four Seasons that serves both Chinese and Japanese cuisine. I’m a self proclaimed sushi addict, but for a mix of reasons I hadn’t eaten sushi in over a month. I needed to fix that ASAP, and then I came across Mei Ume. The concept of Mei Ume…

Smoking Goat Review

Smoking Goat is a Thai barbecue restaurant in Shoreditch. I’d known about Smoking Goat and it’s sister restaurant, Kiln, for a while and all I heard were good things, but for whatever reason Thai cuisine wasn’t a priority of ours. But then a friend of mine went for dinner and I saw her delicious pictures…

Gunpowder Tower Bridge Review

Gunpowder Tower Bridge is a tapas style Indian restaurant focused on home-style authentic cooking. We dined at Gunpowder Spitafields in June and loved it, so when we found out Gunpowder was opening a new restaurant in Tower Bridge we rushed over to the soft opening. Plus, it was 50% of food 😁. Gunpowder Tower Bridge…

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…
