Private Dining At Percy & Founders

A meme recently circulated around Twitter that was a mock-inspirational quote. It read ‘love yourself like Kanye loves himself, believe in yourself like Kanye believes in himself.’ This stellar quote has really inspired us in the office this week and let me tell you one thing readers, Kanye definitely considers himself too important to dine among peasants. This is why the only way to eat out now is to do so in a private dining room and Percy & Founders has a brand spanking new one that is sure to suit your dining needs.

Salaam Namaste Review

Salaam Namaste is tucked away in London Bloomsbury; a couple of minutes’ walk from Russell Square station, and is the proud owner of ‘Best South Asian Restaurant’ at the Asian Curry Awards. When we arrived at 6pm we were only the second people there but after half an hour the place had almost filled, and by the time we left there were only two small tables available. I’m not a fan of poppadums’ or the sauces that typically go with them but I could not get enough of the creamy, tikka style sauce they serve at Salaam Namaste or the […]

The London Royal Tea

As we all know afternoon tea is a very British tradition, all thanks to the Duchess of Bedford being rather peckish between meals and Hotel Café Royal is launching The London Royal Tea on the 14th September which will be a celebration of both London and British history. Served in the iconic Oscar Wilde Bar, the afternoon tea service will begin with a bell being rung to signal the start of service which harks back to the 1800s when the muffin men would ring their bells to say the muffins were ready, that is until 1839 when it was prohibited.
