Bar Douro Review

Bar Douro is an authentic Portuguese small plates restaurant in Flat Iron Square by London Bridge. When the opportunity arose to go for a fairly spontaneous solo dinner I immediately knew Bar Douro was the choice because I love small plates (or tapas style) restaurants and I’m really intrigued by Portuguese cuisine. The vibe in…

Dehesa Restaurant Review

Dehesa is a Spanish and Italian tapas restaurant in Soho. I absolutely love tapas, particularly Spanish tapas and I’ve been on a personal quest to find the best Spanish tapas spot in London. That quest has already taken me to two of Dehesa’s sister restaurants from Salt Yard Group – Ember Yard and Salt Yard…

Suvlaki Shoreditch Review

Suvlaki is an authentic Greek restaurant that specialises tapas-style Greek street food. We really enjoyed Suvlaki Soho last summer and so were very keen to visit Suvlaki Shoreditch. Enjoy our thoughts and lots of mouthwatering Greek food pictures.

Barrafina Kings Cross Review

Barrafina Kings Cross is Barrafina’s latest London restaurant. I’m not going to hide my love for Barrafina, I can’t even if I tried. Read the review to know why I love Barrafina so much, and enjoy loads of mouthwatering tapas pictures.

Freak Scene Review

Freak Scene is an Asian small plates restaurant in Soho from Scott Hallsworth, founder of Kurobuta which we’ve really enjoyed. Freak Scene, like Kurobuta, is full of character, which is accentuated by the snug layout of the restaurant – bar seating around an open vibrant kitchen. The chefs were very friendly too. So was the…

NOPI London Review

Nopi by Yotam Ottolenghi is a tapas style restaurant in Soho that blends Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Asian cuisine. The restaurant is on two floors – upstairs is very beautiful and perfect for a romantic meal. However, we dined downstairs, which is also beautiful but more relaxed with communal seating and a view into the…

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…

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…

Breddos Soho – First Impressions

Breddos is a Mexican restaurant serving Tacos, Tostadas and other Mexican food & drinks. We first tried Breddos at Street Feast Dalston Yard and we absolutely loved it. It was the one thing we knew we’d have every time we went to Dalston yard. Naturally, we were super excited to find out they had opened…

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 – 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…
