It’s So Fetch: A Mean Girls Afternoon Tea Is Coming To London

On Wednesday’s we wear pink, and at DUO London we afternoon tea! The Mean Girls afternoon tea that’s coming to London is proving that, in fact, you can sit with us, as the movie-themed treat swings open its doors… no burn books allowed. Whilst the Mean Girls afternoon tea might be trying to make fetch happen, we don’t care because we’re too excited. The tea has hop, bopped and whizzed across the pond to try and make us pile on the pounds, like Cady tried to do with Regina… but we’re going to comply and attend, even though we disagree, because […]

But Why Did They Call It Eggslut? The Eggy Restaurant With The Edgy Name

Just when we thought we’d heard every restaurant name under the sun, there’s a new one hatching in central delightfully named Eggslut. Yep, you read that correctly. This LA-based diner has flown the nest over the Atlantic ocean launching their very first London venue, and it’s opening tomorrow!

Is This London’s Most Sustainable Supper Club?

 I’m trying to grow my own veggies where possible to do my bit for sustainable living; easy ones like tomatoes, mini cucumbers, leafy greens that don’t require too much water and knowhow though. Why? Well, enjoyment aside, it’s undeniable that sustainable living has taken hold of our social consciences in a firm way, with #vegan to #plasticfreejuly to #zerowaste trending across social media. Also venturing far into the sustainable side is The Whyte & Brown supper club, which aims to focus on what is typically thrown out as waste ingredients from their kitchen to inspire a menu based around their famous chicken.  It’s […]

March Of The Mochi, London’s Latest Pudding Craze

Mochi is having a bit of a moment in London. Quite a big moment in fact, to the point where we can’t stop thinking about it nor stop eating it. Bidding bao buns to back down and humous milkshakes to move aside, mochi is the culinary scene’s latest “OMG” and like most great things (sushi, Hello Kitty), it’s here from Japan! But what actually is mochi? Well, it’s like a little cake packed with ice cream and, on the outside, mochigome, a short-grain japonica glutinous rice, and other ingredients such as water, sugar, and cornstarch. It’s bloody tasty too and […]

Ice, Ice, (Coffee), Baby: 8 Of The Best London Ice Coffees

After temperatures whizzed up to record temperatures last week and office fans went into overdrive, iced coffee very quickly became our best friend (f*ck off Sandra, I don’t care about your break up now I’ve got iced cappuccino).

Better latte than never, here’s where we’re buzzing about… Nude Espresso It’d be pretty rude not to go to Rude as temperatures […]
