SUSHISAMBA City: The Restaurant You Need To Maki Time For…

We’re about to make you soy hungry, so if you’re stuck at the desk for the next few hours then avert your eyes… SUSHISAMBA City was my location for the night last week, as I zipped up 39 floors (eek, not one for those with vertigo) to arrive at its sushi-filled doors. Upon entry, you’re elevated to new heights, figuratively and literally, submerged in 360-degree city views that span across to Canary Wharf, the Shard and the Gherkin. The space is a tapestry of outdoor-in elements; the structural orange tree on the west terrace being the SUSHISAMBA staple that delights Instagram […]

What Happens When We Peru-se Mayfair’s Hottest Peruvian Restaurant

There’s something rather magical about Mayfair. Whether it’s the high-flyers dining out in their finest attire, heels in tow, or celebs snapping an Insta over in one of Annabel’s famous powder rooms, it’s an area of the city brimming with flamboyant eateries, eccentric bars, and nonstop nightlife. This also means the competition is high, and every eatery has to constantly be on top of their game in order to keep attracting the crowds. One place that seems to effortlessly sweep in the top dogs is Peruvian restauranteurs, COYA. Despite being nestled in the heart of Mayfair, just a skip away […]

Say Salaam Namaste To One Of London’s Best Indian Restaurants

Tucked away down a nondescript side street in the heart of Bloomsbury lies an equally nondescript restaurant. It would be quite easy to walk past Salaam Namaste - in fact, from the outside the only feature that might turn your head is the smattering of awards and recommendations adorned in the front window.

The Restaurant That’s Forkin’ Amazing!

In the heart of London’s Square Mile next to Monument Station and a hop, skip and jump from London Bridge you’ll find the newest venture from Farmer J. By day you’ll find their fieldtray favourites, but by night, it turns into an all new restaurant, The Fancy Fork. Spearheaded by Shuli Wilmer, who spent five years working at London hotspot The River Café, it’s clear she’s brought together her experience with the flavours of her Israeli upbringing. The menu champions seasonal produce with dishes like zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta, basil and olive paste and grilled whole fish with smashed roasted […]

Cinnamon Kitchen’s Tantalising Tropical Terrace Is Totally Terrific

We often find ourselves wishing for winter in summer, and wishing for summer in winter. Yet, hot, barmy summer evenings, where cocktails keep hands heavy and laughter bounces from rooftop terrace to rooftop terrace is why these golden, sun-hued moments are what we really live for.

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 […]

The Black Truffle Pizza You Simply Have To Try

London’s food scene is an ever-changing metropolis of hummus smoothies, ice cream with KFC-style chicken plunged in it and jackfruit everything. It therefore comes as little surprise to us that there’s a new pizza parlour on the block, bolstering their new interpretations of pizza classics into our food vocabularies. Crazy Pizza does just what it says on the tin. Chefs swarm the diners sporadically to the sound of sensationally upbeat Italian tunes reminiscent of a moped advert, throwing dough around their heads and grinning. The Big Mamma-esque theatrics keep you on your toes whilst dining, in a space that is […]

We Can’t Get Enough Of This Indian Accent

A few months ago, a visit to Tamarind Mayfair had me lost for words – a rarity, for those who know me. It’s a stalwart member of London’s ever-evolving Indian cuisine influence and its food helped me visit India vicariously. Another was Farzi Café, a restaurant that was big on table theatrics and off-piste dishes. In fact, subconsciously, I’ve been on a bit of an Indian spree as of late and my palette has certainly weathered to the heat and spices bunched into the playground that is Indian food, as a result. Next on the list? Indian Accent. I must […]

Is This London’s Chicest Plant-Based Restaurant?

There seems to be a huge craze in vegan junk food vendors popping up in and around London, and little else for us veggies. Of course, I’m as much of a sucker for carb-loaded burger buns and triple cooked fries as the next person, but sometimes it gets a little same-y and overly indulgent for a mid-week dinner. Stepping into Wild Food Café Islington however was a whole other story. With no deep-fried soy proteins in sight, I was eager to sit down for their bespoke five-course sharing menu to celebrate the longest day of the year. Any veggie readers […]
