Cinnamon Kitchen’s Tantalising Tropical Terrace Is Totally Terrific

We often find ourselves wishing for winter in summer, and wishing for summer in winter. Yet, hot, barmy summer evenings, where cocktails keep hands heavy and laughter bounces from rooftop terrace to rooftop terrace is why these golden, sun-hued moments are what we really live for.

But Why Did They Call It Eggslut? The Eggy Restaurant With The Edgy Name

Just when we thought we’d heard every restaurant name under the sun, there’s a new one hatching in central delightfully named Eggslut. Yep, you read that correctly. This LA-based diner has flown the nest over the Atlantic ocean launching their very first London venue, and it’s opening tomorrow! On 7th August, this new eatery is landing on Portobello Road and it’s been stirring up a bit of a name for itself. Mainly because of it’s charming name. But also because it’s serving up the ultimate comfort food – an eggy bap! Granted, you can’t beat an eggy bap, but with […]

Is This London’s Most Sustainable Supper Club?

 I’m trying to grow my own veggies where possible to do my bit for sustainable living; easy ones like tomatoes, mini cucumbers, leafy greens that don’t require too much water and knowhow though. Why? Well, enjoyment aside, it’s undeniable that sustainable living has taken hold of our social consciences in a firm way, with #vegan to #plasticfreejuly to #zerowaste trending across social media. Also venturing far into the sustainable side is The Whyte & Brown supper club, which aims to focus on what is typically thrown out as waste ingredients from their kitchen to inspire a menu based around their famous chicken.  It’s […]

March Of The Mochi, London’s Latest Pudding Craze

Mochi is having a bit of a moment in London. Quite a big moment in fact, to the point where we can’t stop thinking about it nor stop eating it. Bidding bao buns to back down and humous milkshakes to move aside, mochi is the culinary scene’s latest “OMG” and like most great things (sushi, Hello Kitty), it’s here from Japan! But what actually is mochi? Well, it’s like a little cake packed with ice cream and, on the outside, mochigome, a short-grain japonica glutinous rice, and other ingredients such as water, sugar, and cornstarch. It’s bloody tasty too and […]

5 Borough Market Must-Visits

Sitting with the big dogs, like London Bridge and the Gherkin, is Borough Market, and if you’re a wannabe Londoner then you’ve got to swoop by its bustling arches. Sitting just across from London Bridge tube, it’s a treasure trove for eclectic eateries, pongs of cheese, and being barged past in the homemade fudge queue, and we can’t help but adore it. However, the labyrinth that it is, means a guide, albeit small, to the best places to eat is a total must. So, from baked goods and bao’s, to cold cuts and cronuts, here are our top five Borough […]

London’s Hottest Restaurants Are Now All In One Place

When I picture a food arcade, I imagine screaming kids running around and sticky, faded canteen tables flooded with scrunched up napkins splattered with tommy K, trampled fries looking like dolled up cigarette butts, and half eaten micro-ed jacket spuds sprawled everywhere. In my mind, it’s chaos. So when we heard about the Arcade Food Theatre, we pushed it aside thinking it’d end up being just another crowded food court. But oh boy were we wrong. Arcade Food Theatre, located on the ground floor of the Centre Point building, is a new swanky dining experience featuring six of London’s finest independent […]

The Black Truffle Pizza You Simply Have To Try

London’s food scene is an ever-changing metropolis of hummus smoothies, ice cream with KFC-style chicken plunged in it and jackfruit everything. It therefore comes as little surprise to us that there’s a new pizza parlour on the block, bolstering their new interpretations of pizza classics into our food vocabularies. Crazy Pizza does just what it says on the tin. Chefs swarm the diners sporadically to the sound of sensationally upbeat Italian tunes reminiscent of a moped advert, throwing dough around their heads and grinning. The Big Mamma-esque theatrics keep you on your toes whilst dining, in a space that is […]

Being A Cheeseboard Influencer Is A Real Job And It Looks SO Gouda

We’ve all heard of influencers. We’ve all seen them at work too… curling up on cupcake lilos, posing by palm trees and bobbing about in brightly coloured ball pits. But, have you heard of cheeseboard influencers? A whole different kettle of fish, or board of cheese, if you will. If you didn’t think there was such a thing as the perfect job, then cop an eye at what these cheddar-hungry tricksters do in their spare time. Yep, being a cheeseboard influencer is officially a thing, and it sounds pretty darn gouda… Posting snaps of brimming boards of brie, cuts of […]

The Casino-Based Steakhouse You Can Put Your Money On…

There’s something alien about stepping foot in a casino at 7pm. First of all being ID’d and bag searched by burly bouncers that had just stepped of the Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels movie set, or so it seemed. And, secondly, watching a sea of suits tossing down more money on tables than I’d made that day in the office, or seen in my life, come to think of it! The Hippodrome is the jaunt of the elite, who don’t cast a care towards black or red. It’s also the stomping ground of the Leicester Square massive, who’ve dabbled […]

BIG NEWS: Richard Corrigan Is Opening A New Restaurant

We simply adore Corrigan’s Mayfair. Think quintessential British and Irish cuisine fused with seasonal produce and chef Richard’s culinary prowess, so good in fact that we return time and time again to catch a taste of that Irish charm. Richard Corrigan is famed for his stalwart eateries, loved by many, which include Bentley’s Oyster Bar and Grill and the previously mentioned Corrigan’s Mayfair. Set to open in September, his new venture will sit just off buzzy Old Street and, we’re told, will venture deeper into seasonal influences with a direct connection to the chef’s farm at Virginia Park Lodge in […]
