Asia De Cuba’s Havana Inspired Menu

This Autumn, to brighten up the shorter days, fusion restaurant Asia De Cuba is launching a new menu. Executive Chef Luis Pous hails from Cuba, home to Latin America’s biggest Chinatown, and takes his inspiration from both his Latin American roots and his time spent in Havana’s Chinatown to create dishes combining the bold flavours of both cultures. The new menu is colourful and warming – just what we need for this sometimes (read: often) grey and gloomy city. You can expect indulgent steaks served with bok choy or Asian grilled lamb chops with black beans and, for the more […]

Ceviche Old St Present the Soul Food Session

The Day of the Dead skull is a great Halloween look but despite its name it is a celebration of life and a spectacularly vibrant event. One venue getting involved this year is Ceviche Old St., recent winner of ‘Best New Venue in the UK’. They are hosting a series of events – the Soul Food Sessions inspired by the Soul Sessions between Motown artists in the 60s. The collaborations in the 60s pushed the boundaries of music at the time so in the same way, the team at Ceviche will collaborate with ‘soulfood chefs’, taking food in a new […]

Homeslice Wells Street Review: What We Thought

New? As is the case with many successful restaurants that have opened in recent years, Homeslice began life back in 2011 at street food markets in east London. Fast forward a few years and the humble hand-built wood fired oven has moved on to three sites, the original in Neal’s Yard being the cosiest (and therefore often having the longest queues). Where? There are currently 3 in central London; Shoreditch, Covent Garden, and Fitzrovia, where we went; 52 Wells Street, Fitzrovia, W1T 3PR, www.homeslicepizza.co.uk  On the Menu: Homeslice is known for its vast 20” pizzas, all the same price and recommended […]

STK Halloween Brunch Party

Halloween, the time when the phrase ‘dress to kill’ is apt. It’s also the theme of STK’s Halloween brunch party taking place this Sunday. Starting at 1pm, you can choose whether you’re going to nail the creepy blood and gore look, the zombie cheerleader/doctor outfit or the ‘I’m a sexy cat’ look… but there will be a make-up artist on hand to give you the extra Halloween touches and there will be prizes for the best dressed. So don’t make the error of not trying at all. Dishes will include steak, egg and chips; poached egg, avocado, chill and lime […]

The Grand British Bake Off

We’re still all coming to terms with the fact that this Wednesday will see the last ever Great British Bake Off as we know it. Bye bye Mel and Sue and their eye-rollingly punny jokes. Bye bye Mary and her use of the word ‘scrumptious’ (no one else actually says scrumptious) and bye bye Paul… Oh wait, he’s jumping ship too. The ubiquitous BBC phenomena comes to its end on Wednesday and the event must be celebrated appropriately, so it has to be grand… literally. The Grand will once again be setting up its giant screen so all Bake Off fanatics can […]
