They say three is the magic number and for Harneet and Devina Baweja, this autumn they’ll reach that number as they open their third restaurant, Gul and Sepoy. If you don’t recognise their names then you’ll definitely know their restaurants – the very Gunpowder and Madame D’s. This new restaurant will bring together the royal flavours of Northern India with the more relaxed vibe of the South Western Indian coastline. The name refers to the sections of the menu – on the Gul side you’ll find dishes that echo the age-old banquets of the palaces in North Western India. You’ll […]

Sundays, the day we lament the weekend being over, and lament having to go back to work. Sundays are not our favourite, but there’s no reason why we can’t enjoy them. The fun doesn’t have to end just because we have to get up early the next day. So, here are 10 ways to banish those Sunday blues, and get the most out of your day.
MAM, pronounced mum, is a new restaurant from the team behind the cult East London restaurant Salvation in Noodles and it’s going to be bringing the barbecue street food stalls of Vietnam to All Saints Road to Notting Hill. Mam refers to the art of fermentation, one of those words that doesn’t sound so good, but the results? Fermentation is never going to have tasted so good. There’ll be skewered meat cooked on a robata grill served with owner, Colin’s mum’s homemade fermented dipping sauce, a pungent spicy recipe made with shrimp paste and pineapple. Served sharing style, the skewers […]
If you’re a Londoner who likes to party hard during the day, you’re not alone. London’s day party scene has been growing steadily, aided by the popularity of US import the bottomless brunch. We’re still some way away from Berlin’s level of daytime revelry, but London isn’t short of places to while away the day and act like it’s night, whether it’s food, drink or dancing with reckless abandon you’re after.
It was about this time three years ago that Hello Kitty made the news, everyone’s world was temporarily turned upside down when we found out that Hello Kitty was not actually a cat, but a British school girl who lived just outside of London with her twin Mimmy and their pet cat Charmmy Kitty. Who’d have guessed? Now Hello Kitty is coming back to her birthplace with the arrival of a Hello Kitty pop-up at Tombo Fitzrovia. Launching on the 1st September and running for six weeks, there’ll be a special Hello Kitty poké bowl, ice cream sundaes, cupcakes, puddings […]
Award-winning chef and the man who introduced us to chicken butter, Adam Handling, is set to open his next Frog restaurant on the 1st September and whilst the full details are still yet to be announced, we wanted to tell you what we do know because it’s going to be big. Following on from The Frog E1, the Shoreditch restaurant which champions up and coming talent and has swinging seats (such fun) and his recently opened deli, Bean & Wheat, the new restaurant, The Frog by Adam Handling, will set up shop on Southampton Street in Covent Garden. Taking a […]
Elvis is alive! He also loved eating squirrel, was a black belt in Karate and owned the first VCR in America. Some of those statements are true but we’ll leave it up to you to decide on which ones. What is definitely true is that Elvis is touring again! Well the memory of him at least as Elvis On Tour The Exhibition opens at The O2 on 3rd November, marking 40 years since Elvis’ (supposed) death. The O2’s previous Elvis exhibition in 2014 and 2015 was so popular that over 200,000 people visited to see a real glimpse into the […]
Hurricane Gert is poised to attack this weekend – but no forecaster seems to know whether it’ll spell good or bad news for the weather. At the moment it’s looking like sunny spells, so drop the brolly and make the most of this lot (including London’s only Thames-side beach) this weekend.
Time for a fact, whilst we all know that smell and taste are linked, did you know that it is thought that up to 90% of what we perceive as taste is actually smell? No, wonder that even the best food in life tastes like cardboard when we are ill, then. Why are we telling you this? Obviously it is something related to eating, we’re not suddenly interested in the study of olfactory. It’s because Hotel Café Royal have teamed up with leading French perfumer and artist, diptyque (you’ll recognise the candles) to create an afternoon tea based on their […]
