Ikoyi – Second Thought Review

Ikoyi is a fusion restaurant that blends West African ingredients (Nigerian, primarily) with Western cuisine for very a unique fine dining experience. Last summer I went to Ikoyi for the first time and wrote a First Impression review. As a Nigerian I was incredibly excited about a fine dining Nigerian restaurant in ST JAMES MARKET,…

May Eats

May Eats is the 4th is our Monthly Eats video blog series. May is a big month for us because it’s both our Birthday Month so a lot of celebration! We ate at seven restaurants. A couple favourites – Chotto Matte for Amen’s birthday, Novikov Asian for Shiima’s – and five new restaurants Berber &…

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…

Black Roe – First Impressions

Black Roe serves Hawaiian inspired food and is the sister restaurant to our favourite Chotto Matte. We definitely had to drop by to see if it matched up to our all-time fave. The restaurant When you step inside, its low lit with a poke bar on one side by the entrance, the bar on the…

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…

La Bodega Negra

La Bodega Negra is a Mexican restaurant in Soho with plenty of edge and the perfect vibe for Soho. La Bodega Negra has a café and a restaurant very close to each other, but I’ve never been to the café. I went to the restaurant once years ago, before I met Shiima, and I always…

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,…

April Eats Video Blog

This is our 4th video blog and the 3rd in our “Monthly Eats” series, where we talk about all the spots we dined at in the previous month. In April, it was 5 restaurants – Flesh & Buns, Social Eating House, Caravan Kings X, Hutong, and Pitt Cue – and also Dinerama from Street Feast,…

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)…

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…
