Iberica Marylebone – First Impressions

Iberica is a Spanish tapas restaurant with locations across UK. I love tapas and I’ve been on a quest to find the best tapas restaurant in London for over two years now. Plus, I find that tapas style restaurants are best for group dining. So when Shiima, a couple of my siblings, and I wanted…

Caravan Kings Cross – First Impressions Review

A couple of years ago we went to Grain Store (now sadly closed) in Granary Square King’s Cross for dinner and we came across Caravan Kings Cross. We had a quick look at the menu, and it was intriguing enough so we immediately added it to our list. But for reason it kept getting pushed…

Social Eating House – First Impressions Review

Social Eating House in the heart of Soho is another of Jason Atherton’s renowned restaurants. We’ve dined at City Social and Social Wine and Tapas, and although we didn’t particularly enjoy either of those restaurants we were still very keen to dine at Social Eating House. For one thing, Social Eating House has a Michelin…

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…

Chiltern Firehouse – First Impressions Review

Chiltern Firehouse comes with an esteemed reputation, mostly because of its clientele and ostentatious aura, which includes difficulty to get a reservation. Shiima and I are cool with all those. Actually, we enjoy it because it makes for a more entertaining experience. But all that quickly becomes a detriment if the food isn’t up to…

Koba Review – First Impressions

We didn’t really enjoy our first experience of Korean cuisine, but I loved my solo excursion to Bo Drake. We also love BBQ food, so Koba has been on our list of restaurants to dine at for almost a year, although rather low on the list. But I was browsing through our Instagram discover page and I…

Bread Street Kitchen – First Impressions

Bread Street Kitchen has been on our list for months since we went to Maze Grill Mayfair, which is another of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. We enjoyed Maze Grill so much we added all of Gordon Ramsay’s London restaurants to our list. Bread Street Kitchen is a vibrant restaurant prominently located in One New Change in…

Kiru – First Impressions

I love sushi, but we haven’t been to a new Japanese restaurant in months because I have exhausted all the Japanese restaurants around us. All that’s left is West London, which is far! Lol. I’d come across quite a few Japanese restaurants in West London but there was always something missing (most of them just…

Kricket Soho – First Impressions

Shiima and I love Indian cuisine, probably because it has quite a few elements similar to Kenyan/Arab cuisine (her) and Nigerian cuisine (me). So we are always excited about going to an Indian restaurant. What made Kricket even more exciting for me is that it serves tapas style small dishes and I love that because…

First Impressions – Chicks ‘n’ Sours Seven Dials

I love chicken, which is good for me because it’s pretty much the only meat I eat. Amen loves chicken too, but he loves everything lol. He’s not that into fried chicken though, but I think that’s mostly because he’s a fitness freak. He didn’t agree to deep frying chicken wings at home until I…

First Impressions – Social Wine and Tapas

Our first restaurant review of the year is Social Wine and Tapas, which we dined at late last year. I love tapas restaurants and Shiima doesn’t mind them, long as the restaurant has dishes she’d enjoy. Usually though, tapas restaurants don’t so I end up going for a solo excursion. But the social wine and…

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,…
