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…

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.

Duddell’s London Review

Duddell’s is an authentic Cantonese restaurant in the historic St Thomas’s Church building right by Borough Market in London Bridge. Duddell’s started in Hong Kong and Duddell’s London is their first restaurant outside Hong Kong.

Bombay Bustle Review

Bombay Bustle is an authentic Indian restaurant on Maddox Street in Mayfair specialising in Mumbai’s diverse home style cooking. We first came across Bombay Bustle while walking to Black Roe and were really intrigued by the menu. Then again at Taste 2018 and our interest was peaked. We went for dinner on a Monday and…

The Modern Pantry Review – First Impressions

The Modern Pantry is an elegant restaurant in Clerkenwell with fuses everyday cooking with modern ingredients. It’s modern European cuisine from a renowned Kiwi chef, so it’s far from the norm. The Modern Pantry is another one of our Taste of London Festival revelations and after looking through their menu at the festival we were…

Brigadiers – First Impressions

Last Saturday on Instagram I came a scrumptious picture of sliders from a restaurant called Brigadiers. I’d never heard of Brigadiers, so I quickly clicked through to the restaurant and I was completely taken by the food. I was even more enamoured by the pictures/videos geotagged to the location. After a bit more sleuthing I…

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…

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,…
