The Heat Is On At London’s Spiciest Restaurants

London Says Adiós To Its Favourite Cuban Restaurant

1999 the year of Pokémon, Brooklyn Beckham, the Millennium Bug, the best Jaffa Cake (nay biscuit) advert ever and Richard Curtis gave the world Notting Hill. Making Notting Hill a pilgrimage for Hugh Grant fans wasn’t the only thing going on in London, nor was the revealing of the London Eye. It was also the year that London had its first taste of Chino Latino cuisine as Asia de Cuba in St Martins Lane opened. Twenty years on and Chino Latino cuisine is thriving in London, despite the Evening Standard’s star critic questioning the reasons why anyone would mix eastern […]

Where To Eat Out In… Clapham

Ask the man on the Clapham omnibus where to eat out and he’ll probably tell you to f**k right off, because this is South London. But get out at Clapham Common and ask one of the increasingly genteel inhabitants of this South West enclave, and they’ll give you a list that’s something like this one.
