Aqua Nueva’s New #FitnessBrunch Series

Working out is not always quite as pleasant as we would hope it to be. Far too often we hop out of bed and head to the gym in the hopes of releasing some tension and much-needed endorphins only to have our zen dreams squandered by crowded treadmills and displeasing grunts surfacing from the weight machines. Lucky for us, aqua nueva is providing an alternative means to getting that summer body, even if the gloomy London weather prevents us from ever actually showing it off.  Regent Street’s stunning rooftop terrace at aqua nueva will be hosting a #FitnessBrunch series on Sundays where ticket holders can participate in an […]

Rok Opens in Islington

Last summer Shoreditch saw the opening of Rok, a restaurant serving up Nordic influenced dishes and safe to say it was a success. So this summer they’re opening restaurant number two in Islington. Executive chef Matt Young will be overseeing the menu and the sixty cover restaurant will open with seasonal summer offerings which will feature classic dishes from their Shoreditch restaurant (such as duck with lingonberry bacon jam and wood smoked peach) as well as new dishes. These include mackerel with pickled onions and flamed crispbread; local grown guinea fowl with semi-cured pork belly and butter poached wild vegetables; […]

Assado Review – What We Thought

New? Relatively new – it only opened in 2014. Where? 157 Waterloo Road, Lambeth, SE1 8XA, www.assado.co.uk On the menu: Pan-Indian cuisine with a few British curveballs thrown in like Assado crumb fried fish and chips. First Impressions: Very casual but smartly presented, the open plan kitchen reveals the chefs hard at work plus a Kamado grill and wood-burning ovens. This isn’t the kind of place you need to get dressed up for but the venue itself is anything but shabby. The Look: The front wall is made of glass, flooding the venue with light – when combined with the high ceilings it gives the restaurant […]

Darwin Launches Freakshakes

It’s time to look to the heavens and thank the food lords, or in this case, Darwin, which is 36 floors up in the sky (Sky Garden to be precise), as yet more delicious Freakshakes have hit the menus of London. This time appearing on Darwin’s new brunch menu alongside bottomless bloody Marys and Prosecco, will be the increasingly popular Freakshakes in three new flavours. The Freak Dough is a moreish shake of salted caramel with a whole doughnut perched on the rim in case you were craving that extra sugar kick; Freakin’ Macaroons, is a tropical mix of coconut […]

Peyotito: Refined Mexican Cuisine

Long gone are the days of gimmicky sombreros and rainbow ponchos tacked onto the walls, as sophisticated, modern Mexican restaurants are beginning to make their welcome debuts into the London foodie scene. A far cry from the typical ‘Tex-Mex’ cuisine, refined Mexican menus, such as the one at new restaurant Peyotito, are transforming the way the capital views Mexican food in the most positive of ways. And thankfully, tequila is still a staple.  Peyotito is launching as a local stalwart in the heart of Notting Hill situated in a light, intimate and casual surrounding… You’ll find it by the neon […]

The Art of Dining: 7 Restaurants With Amazing Art

Carve: Redefining Roasts

The humble British carvery is getting a makeover this summer in the form of Carve which will be coming to Tooley Street soon. Created by Daniel Bear, the founder of Euphorium Bakery, Carve will be redefining the roast with their guilt-free, high-protein carve pots…(that said we’re yet to feel guilty about having a roast). Big on flavour the carve pots will be made from meat, fish and tofu slabs which are hand-carved, pulled and prepped on a special raised carving podium. Rather than Yorkshire puddings and cauliflower cheese they’ll be served with superfoods, spices, relishes and roots – so you’ll […]

Texas Joe: All About the BBQ

The thing with London is that we’re very good at taking parts of other countries culture and cuisine the parts that we like and leaving the parts we aren’t too sure about. Take the US for example, we’re all on board the BBQ restaurants of Texas, we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving if it means we can have a practise run at Christmas but we’ll politely decline Hershey’s – it just isn’t Cadburys. With today being Independence Day London is celebrating in full force and one place opening just in time is Texas Joe. Doing away with the American clichés that are so […]
