3.14159265359…. Do The Math, Pie Week’s Coming…

Love Island might be a lifetime away, but the pie-ing is starting early. Not as another couple break up (RIP Adam and Zara), but rather the sort that you’ll want to pour gravy over. Welcome to actual pies and national pie week, running next week from Monday 4th March to Sunday 10th.

Farzi Café Is The New Indian Spicing Up Our Lives

London’s latest Indian, Farzi Café, has the full ability to present first impressions of grandeur, over-priced food and flashiness but it is, in fact, quite the opposite. The Indian import has finally landed in London, with venues already present across India and Dubai. Sitting proudly amongst theatreland, next to the Only Fools And Horses Musical, it’s blatant that this restaurant has landed itself a real whopper of a spot in central London, turning heads with its golden hued signage amidst a sea of concrete buildings. The restaurant offers two levels of dining alongside opulent colours of luxurious gold and emerald […]

An Incredible Avocado Restaurant Is Coming To London

Avo look at this! A famous avocado restaurant is coming to London for two weeks and two weeks only and if the photos are anything to go by, we’re pushing in front of everyone in the queue to be the first in line. The Avocado Show is quite the spectacle, as a famed Amsterdam restaurant that’s raked in the Instagram followers and won everyone over with its whacky and temptatious avocado creations. The pop-up will run from March 11-24 at Bluebird Chelsea and whilst this is the restaurant’s London debut we’re crossing our fingers, toes and other bits for the famed venue to […]

10 Best Places For Nikkei Food In London

It’s Paddington versus Piccachu, the ultimate intergalactic battle. Marmalade up against Pokémon powers. Or, to be a little more accurate, ceviche versus sushi. When Brazil banned slavery (this article just took an unexpected turn, right?), in the late 19th century, funnily enough the...

Are You Being Served? The Best Department Store Restaurants

Don’t get me wrong, I could waffle up Ikea meatballs until the cows (and pigs, inexplicably they’re made from both) come home, but that’s not quite what we’re talking about here. The department store in-house restaurant has come a long way since it was a case of grab a...

21 Of The Most Unusual Places To Eat

There’s something incredibly British about eccentricity. When we hear about John Mytton, who arrived at a dinner party riding his pet bear, or John Churchill, the WW2 officer who fought the Germans with his bow and arrow and a broadsword, we smile and indulge. This would cause consternation...

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. Because as Clapham gets posher and posher, so do the dining options. Yes, you can still get totally rat-arsed at Inferno’s, but surely it’s better to be chundering up lumps of Michelin starred food, right? No 32 A stalwart venue of Clapham’s, No 32 The […]

Table For One: Best Solo Dining Spots In London

Some things simply aren’t best when done alone; table tennis or moving a sofa or sex, for instance. But when it comes to dining out, don’t listen to the detractors, boldly stroll in and ask for a table for one. And if you’re going to go solo, then do it right. Find somewhere...

Holy Chow! Restaurants In Converted Churches

Whilst it might seem a tad on the eerie side delving into your sausages and mash inside an old church, there’s also an intriguing element too it. I mean, a church is the last place you’d expect to have a meal right?! Well, perhaps not the last place, I can imagine munching in a volcano...

London’s Indian Fine Dining Scene Welcomes An Emperor

Atul Kochhar is back! The first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star is opening a new restaurant, Kanishka, on Mayfair’s Maddox Street and it’s the most anticipated Indian restaurant opening in a recent string of high profile Indian openings. Kochhar won his Michelin star at Tamarind of Mayfair back in 2001 before moving to open Benares the following year, again bagging himself a Michelin star. Under his watch he established Benares at the very top of the London’s culinary scene, where it firmly remains, before finally leaving, apparently under something of a cloud, earlier in 2018. Perhaps unrelated, Kanishka […]
