Enoteca Rosso Is Kensington’s Very Own Wine Tardis…

Enoteca Rosso; once I’d wrapped my head around the name, I wrapped my lips around a whole lot of wine glasses. This chic Italian doesn’t let you leave hungry and is a pasta strand away from guests having to sleep in the restaurant from carb overload. The fine food and fare comes with a side dish of charming staff with engrossing tales of their heritage at their helm, all of which can be enjoyed whilst sipping a Tempranillo. The spacious Kensington restaurant delights with its wine bottle lined walls, best described as being like a Scandi-style cellar. Imaginative Italian food […]

There’s No, Ho, Ho, Time Like The Present To Book Your Street Feast Party

Christmas time, mistletoe and wine, children siiiiiinging Christian rhymes, with logs on the fire, gifts on the tree, it’s a time to re- Oh, sorry about that, we’re getting carried away because it’s September so that’s, like, basically Christmas, right? Wrong. But, there’s no denying that the countdown is on, and whether you’re someone who buys your pressies on Boxing Day, or perhaps you’re a last minute Michael and you rummage for odd socks for Dad at 4am on Christmas Eve, one thing everyone has in common is their love of Christmas food and frolics!

Lewis Hamilton Just Opened A Vegan Burger Restaurant & It’s Driving Us Crazy With Excitement!

From Idris Elba launching a cocktail bar named Parrot to David Beckham taking over a West London boozer, there’s really no shortage of celebs turning their hand to food and drink. Now, things are about to become even more random as Lewis Hamilton, as in racing driver Lewis, is launching a vegan burger chain in the city… and it’s driving us crazy with excitement (geddit, driving?). OK, perhaps reading that you might think it’s somewhat bizarre, however Lewis did announce he’d become vegan in 2017 and, since, he’s been working with several investors to launch Neat Burger which has been […]

The Raw Food Restaurant That Should Be On Your Radar

On a balmy summer night I made my way to Victoria to try a menu that wouldn’t normally be my bag. Yet, after once trying a tarantula cocktail at Sea Container’s Dandelion bar, it’s fair to say I’m typically forthright when it comes to food and drink. That’s not to say this menu was of a nature as eccentric and otherworldly as my cocktail escapade, but rather it was a 100% vegetarian menu, of which I’m not used to trying. If you’ve never heard of the M Restaurant family then I’ll eat my hat (if I have room post-meal). The […]

7 Of London’s Best Raw Food Restaurants

You’ve got gluten free diets, plant-based fads, fruitarians and now there’s even some extremists going the next stretch and going on a raw food diet. Similar to veganism, a raw diet consists of fruit, veggies, nuts, and seeds, with the use of techniques such as juicing, blending, dehydrating, soaking and sprouting to help maintain maximum nutrition and goodness is left with every dish. We’re talking courgette ribboned lasagna, raw pizza, and kimchi-style everything, so if you fancy channeling your inner caveman (or cavewoman) with a modern style raw diet, we’re rounded up seven of London’s best raw food restaurants. Lettuce get started… Vantra […]
