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…

Nest Restaurant Review

Nest is a cosy restaurant in Hackney that serves British cuisine. I’d read a lot about Nest, but what intrigued me the most about the restaurant is what scared Shiima the most. At Nest it’s about sustainability; they only use one meat in the kitchen at a time, which is impressive. Plus, it’s predominantly a…

Talli Joe Review

Talli Joe is an Indian restaurant in Covent Garden that claims to be best Indian restaurant in London. We love Indian food so we were tremendously excited to eat at Talli Joe. You can’t reserve a table of 2, so we rushed over soon as Shiima was done at work. Talli Joe has a very…

Smoking Goat Review

Smoking Goat is a Thai barbecue restaurant in Shoreditch. I’d known about Smoking Goat and it’s sister restaurant, Kiln, for a while and all I heard were good things, but for whatever reason Thai cuisine wasn’t a priority of ours. But then a friend of mine went for dinner and I saw her delicious pictures…

Flesh & Buns Fitzrovia Review

Flesh & Buns is a indulgent Japanese restaurant focused on meat & seafood (flesh) and steamed fluffy bao buns. We absolutely love baos, but we love flesh & buns even more. We are regulars at Flesh & Buns Covent Garden, and it’s one of our favourite London restaurants, so we were so excited to try…

El Pirata of Mayfair Review

El Pirata of Mayfair is an authentic Spanish tapas restaurant. I love authentic Spanish tapas and tapas style restaurants so I was very enthusiastic about dinner at El Pirata of Mayfair. I’m also on the quest to find the best Spanish Tapas in London, and, of less priority, the world… as evidenced by our Foodie Adventures…

Smoke & Salt Review

Smoke & Salt is a small plates restaurant in Pop Brixton that uniquely fuses seasonal British ingredients with ancient cooking methods for a creative dining experience. I’ll say this from the start, I’m a friend of Remi Williams, on of the chefs and owners of Smoke & Salt alongside Aaron Webster, and although I believe…

Kimchee Pancras Square Review

Kimchee is an authentic Korean restaurant with two locations in central London – Kimchee Holborn, and the recently opened Kimchee Pancras Square. We’ve been to Kimchee Holborn a couple times for dinner, but our most recent visit to Kimchee Pancras Square. Our visit to Kimchee Pancras Square was impromptu, Shiima and I were in 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…

Smokestak Review – Solo Excursion

Smokestak is a barbecue restaurant in Shoreditch that evolved from a fantastic street food vendor at various locations such as Street Feast Dinerama and the now defunct Street Feast Dalston Yard. Shiima and I first became aware of Smokestak at Dalston Yard (one of our favourite street food locations and where I proposed ☺️). Shiima…
