Circus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar What: An aromatic dining experience…sorry, I meant acrobatic.Why: Your mum probably warned you about the circus, but you’re already two glasses of champers down and […]

Shoryu Ramen Review

What: Ramen NoodlesWhere: CarnabyWhy you should go there: For an authentic Japanese experience/if you can’t afford to go to Japan.Favourite thing we had: Matcha Cheesecake   It took us a long time to arrange to eat here. It was always busy! So when we did there were big expectations. What was so good about this Japanese noodle joint – Shoryu Ramen?

The club was founded by Kate Middleton’s school pal – Emma Sayle. Sounds intimidating? Well lets just say it’s not for the faint hearted… In this pro-feminist era Killing Kittens works for women as they are unapologetic about the pursuit of […]
