October Eats is the 9th vlog in our Monthly Eats video blog series, where we chat about everything we ate in the past month. This month you can find us discussing new restaurants and a solo excursions from Amen. In October we ate at 3 new restaurants Mei Ume – A beautiful, opulent Chinese/Japanese restaurant Hawksmoor Spitalfields –…

First Impressions – A Wong

We went to A Wong for our Eid Dinner on Friday, and we were really late for our reservation but luckily they were still able to accommodate. I know I wouldn’t hear the last of it from Amen if they didn’t. A Wong is a Chinese restaurant in Pimlico by Andrew Wong. Amen had this…

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…

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…

First Impressions – Tandoor Chop House

We love Indian cuisine and have been to 12 other restaurants. We still have plenty others to visit. I’ve always been a fan of Indian food, but it took a while to get Amen convinced as he doesn’t eat carbs and thought it was a carb overload cuisine. Finally, I managed to get him to…

First Impressions – Crazy Bear Restaurant

The Crazy Bear in Fitzrovia is a place I’ve always wanted to go. Years ago, I was enthralled by pictures of the bar I saw online and I really wanted to go. Yes, I don’t drink, but I like bars, love the atmosphere lol. I didn’t end up going though. But years later, while restaurant…

Sasa Sushi

To start with, I’m going to declare that I love Sasa Sushi, I love everything about it, especially the food and the family that run it. But, I promise I’ll be objective ☺ I was introduced to Sasa Sushi by a friend, to whom I’ll always be grateful, during the burgeoning stage of my love affair…

First Impressions- Barbecoa

Another ‘first impressions’ post, I expect we will have a few of these as I have a list of restaurants for us to go to, 22 restaurants so far. This means I have to be going extra hard at the gym – CARDIO, ugh. – But for Amen he already goes pretty much everyday and…

First Impressions – Trishna

As of right now, all the restaurants we’ll blogged about are restaurants we’ve been to a fair bit – in the case of Street Feast, much more than a fair bit – so we’ve decided to start with First Impressions. We go to a restaurant for the first time, order as much as we can,…

Chotto Matte

Last Friday (and rather peculiarly this coming Friday) we had dinner at Chotto Matte, a Japanese-Peruvian (Nikkei, for the cool folk) fusion restaurant in the heart of Soho. Chotto Matte was recommended to me by a friend, who knew of my love of sushi and my passionate search for the best Black Cod dish in…
