Lupita

Authentic Mexican restaurant, Lupita which launched in Villiers Street two years ago, has recently opened the doors of its second London restaurant in Spitalfields. However, it began life almost 50 years ago as El Farolito, a traditional taquería in a town just west of Mexico City in the Colonia Condesa. Starting out as a small charcoal grill run by two grill men, within a year, its popularity had grown to such an extent that people from all over Mexico City came to try the infamous “charcoal tacos” – a Central American dish dating back to the early 1900s. Nowadays, all […]

Fantastic Fish and Chips at Bonnie Gull

When you step inside Bonnie Gull, you are whisked away from the dark London streets and could so easily be on the South coast. Its white interior is lit with small twinkling lights and is adorned with kilometre of fishermen’s rope evoking the nostalgic feeling of a seaside shack. The infamous Nirvana quote, ‘It’s ok to eat fish ‘Cause they don’t have feelings’ stands proudly on the wall and the winning feature (for me) the map of Britain points out exactly where the fish has been caught that day, which not only means that dishes depend on the catch but […]
