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 – City Social

City social is a stylish modern British restaurant by London chef Jason Atherton on the 24th floor of Tower 42 in the city. It took some persuading to get me to the restaurant as I’m not a fan of British cuisines since it’s mainly has beef and fish – definitely not for me! But Amen…

First Impressions – Temper City

I don’t quite remember how I became aware of Temper, but I’ve known about the restaurant for a while. Temper is a BBQ and open fire pit restaurant from Neil Rankin, a chef famous for his BBQ mastery. I’d looked at Temper Soho menu a few times, and decided to go with friends, as the…

Solo Excursion – Barrafina Dean Street

As will be obvious if you’ve read my previous posts on Barrafina Adeliade Street and Barrafina Drury Lane, I love Barrafina. And now I’ve finally dined at the Dean Street restaurant in Soho, which was the only Barrafina I hadn’t been to. As a refresher, Barrafina is a Michelin starred Spanish tapas restaurant with only…

First Impressions – Pachamama

Amen mentions we are going to Pachamama for dinner last week, no ifs or buts. This was the first time I’ve heard of the restaurant and I tend to look at the menu prior but he was adamant that there were plenty of dishes for me to enjoy. I trusted him and we headed over…

First Impressions – Jamavar

Jamavar is an upmarket Indian restaurant in Mayfair that opened within the past year, but has already built a very good reputation. Shiima and I first came across Jamavar at Taste of London 2017, when I had their utterly delicious Malabar Chicken Wings. Then a couple weeks ago, Jamavar was featured on Celebrity Masterchef. The…

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…

First Impressions – Vanilla Black

Shiima and I are not vegetarian or vegan. But then Shiima is really particular about what meat she eats (only chicken and beef burgers), and she very rarely eats fish (tempura shrimp and fried squid), so she’s not too far off lol. I, on the other hand, eat anything, long as it’s prepared with care….

First Impressions – Maze Grill Mayfair

For a while now, I’ve had it in mind to visit one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. He is Shiima’s favourite TV chef (she loves Kitchen Nightmares) and I really like him as well. We didn’t have the best of experiences at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal so we really weren’t in a rush to visit another…

First Impressions – MNKY HSE

MNKY HSE is a restaurant I’ve heard people mention before but I thought it was just one of those hyped places. But I came across it again and this time I actually had a look at the menu. I was already intrigued when I saw it is Latin American, but the tricky part was to…

First Impressions – Nobu Shoreditch

Shiima and I absolutely love Nobu. We’ve had dinner at Nobu Berkeley Street on several occasions, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, Eid, and New Year’s Eve. That ought to tell you something about Nobu … it’s a restaurant reserved for special occasions, and they know it. Nobu is a renowned international Japanese and Peruvian restaurant. Recently, when…
