It’s Sunday and you’re feeling blue, why yes, you’ve got a case of the Sunday Blues. Well, we’ve got a remedy for that, in the form of food of course. Be it a classic roast or a spread of kebabs, Sunday is all about feasting, banishing those blues and prepping you for the week ahead. Below: some of our favourite feasts London has to offer. Knives and forks at the ready.
This weekend has not one, not two, but three causes for celebration. Firstly, Today is Australia Day so you’ll find us with a top notch coffee in one hand and a Lamington in the other, wishing we were in sunnier climes. Secondly, Saturday marks Chinese New Year and London is celebrating with a whole host of activities, including the big parade on Sunday. Finally, it’s pay day (hurrah!) and the last weekend of this long, dark month. Celebrations all round!
It’s almost February and you know what that means, Valentine’s Day and if you’re single you’re preparing yourself for the barrage from friends in couples. ‘Your problem is you’re too fussy/you aren’t ready/you aren’t looking properly.’ Great. None of it is particularly helpful. You’ve exhausted Tinder, you know that the chances of the person you kissed last Saturday at the bar becoming your SO is unlikely and there are no more friends or friends of friends. So now what do you do? That’s where Social Concierge come in and it’s in the name really – they will sort out your […]
One of the most consistently reoccurring restaurants on Londoners’ bucket lists is som saa.

With a venue somewhere in between industrial East London (it’s an old fabric warehouse) and welcoming Thai home (the space is filled with vintage Thai decorations), som saa is now bringing a little bit more of Thailand to us, with […]
Nape: the back of your neck, the English name for coppa a traditional cut of Italian pork salami made from the dry cured muscle running from the neck to the 4th or 5th rib of the pork shoulder and now a cured meat bar in South London. Starting life as a pop-up at the tail end of last year, Nape is the first site from the team behind Cannon & Cannon, the British cured meat curators in Borough Market. As you can imagine, it’s all about the meat, from platters of Hackney-made fennel and cubeb pepper salami and Gloucester Old […]
Two top London Toms are teaming up this February to bring you a very special Michelin-starred tasting menu. It’ll be served up at Tom Sellers’ Restaurant Story, and he’ll be welcoming into his kitchen Tom Aikens, who taught Sellers the tricks of the trade when he started out more than a decade ago. The restaurant was awarded a Michelin star only 5 months after opening in 2013, and has retained the star ever since, as well as gaining a whole host of other awards. Both chefs will prepare 3 snacks and 4 dishes to result in a tasting menu of 6 snacks and 8 […]

And if you haven’t tried one of the burgers […]
