Hoppers Opens on Frith Street

With Gymkhana and Trishna already under their belts, siblings, Karam, Jyotin and Sunaina Sethi are opening their third restaurant next week, Hoppers. Taking inspiration from the roadside shacks of Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka, Hoppers’ menu will revolve around the hopper and dosa. For those who don’t know, the hopper is more widely known as Aappam/ஆப்பம், but us Brits mispronunciated it and ended up with hopper…good one.  They look like a thin, bowl shaped pancake and are made with fermented rice batter and coconut milk and will be served with a choice of meat, seafood or vegetable kari. The dosas […]

Chris Dargavel will heading up the kitchen with the motto – foraging and foresting […]

The Corinthia Spa Review: What We Thought

The ESPA life spa at the Corinthia covers four floors, that’s four floors of pure escapism and luxury. It features 17 treatment rooms, a nail studio, Daniel Galvin hair salon, a state of the art gym, a private spa suite and the thermal floor which is where we were headed. As we walked into the spa, down through the serene and white corridor, we could immediately feel our permanent state of tension that Londoners seem to have, release. First of all we headed to the gym to get in a workout before the spa. If you want to talk about […]

Back to the Future at Pizza Pilgrims

Film buffs all know that certain dates throughout the year bear particular significance; October 3rd (‘On October 3rd he asked me what day it is’), 4th May (‘May the fourth be with you’), the list goes on. It is extremely rare that a date is a one-off, and that the year mentioned is one we will get to experience. Well, get excited; it is happening. Wednesday 21st October 2015 doesn’t just sound familiar because you’ve got your 6.45pm haircut, it sounds familiar because it’s the date that Marty and Doc Brown travelled forward in time to in Back to the […]

Wahaca’s Day of the Dead Fiesta

In Mexico, Day of the Dead is celebrated with face paint, marigolds and foodie offerings to passed loved ones, and in London… we have DJs, bands, debates, immersive theatre and a whole lotta great food. Of course such a fiesta is being put on by Wahaca which means that no dancer will go unfueled. Traditional style stalls will be serving Mexican market tacos, roasted elotes (grilled corn), smokey barbacoa (pulled pork) and perhaps our favourite hispanic dish of all… churros. At this post-Hallowe’en party you can enjoy live music from The Horrors and Crystal Fighters and the more authentic sounds […]

Bourne & Hollingsworth Review – What We Thought

Passing through the silent cobbled streets of Farringdon you turn the corner to find a cosy fairy-lit pub on one side and a wine bar on the other. The best surprise of all was stumbling upon Bourne & Hollingsworth with the huge painted front and enormous swaying Union Jack, confirmation that we had indeed been heading in the right direction. In honour of new executive chef, Adam Gray, and his new winter menu, a press dinner was held at a huge marble-topped table in the greenhouse area. Part jungle, part luxurious garden nursery, the greenhouse was the perfect area for […]
