Busaba Review

What: Brunch favourites with a Thai twist Where: Shoreditch (although you can find Busabas all over London) Why you should go there: Thai vibes in the modern venue with reasonably priced food Favourite thing we had: Thai Hash (spiced potato hash with spring onion, galangal and red chilli; served with two Thai-style fried eggs). The Shoreditch venue is a stone’s throw from the station making it easy as pie to get to if you aren’t a local in the East London town. On arrival I noticed that the walkway from the entrance to reception was made of glass, giving the impression that it’s […]

Shoryu Ramen Review

What: Ramen NoodlesWhere: CarnabyWhy you should go there: For an authentic Japanese experience/if you can’t afford to go to Japan.Favourite thing we had: Matcha Cheesecake   It took us a long time to arrange to eat here. It was always busy! So when we did there were big expectations. What was so good about this Japanese noodle joint – Shoryu Ramen? I mean Japan was pretty up there for being good at things that other countries wern’t, but could they really bring Japan to London and still be good at what they do? In short – yes. I wish I was […]

Rivea Restaurant Review

What: Pétale de Rose Menu Where: The Bulgari’s Rivea restaurant Why you should go there: If you want plenty of chilled rosé Favourite thing we had: Fresh burrata with tomato and basil pesto Nothing says summer quite like a chilled glass rosé of in the sun and to celebrate the return of the warmer weather, the Rivea restaurant at the Bulgari hotel have just launched Pétale de Rose menu which as you can imagine features plenty of2013 Cótes de Provence Pétale de Rose Château Barbeyrolles  and light, fresh dishes. The restaurant itself doesn’t really say summer, given there are no windows (it’s downstairs) and […]

BunBunBun Review

What: Vietnamese FoodWhere: HoxtonWhy you should go there: For an authentic Vietnamese experienceFavourite thing we had: The salt and chilli soft shell crab When you repeat Bunbunbun in your head after so many times it starts to sound like a very catchy theme tune. BunBunBunBunBunBunBunBunBunBunBun. Yes? No…? Anyway, when I walked in the door the restaurant  was bright and cheery. The waiting staff all had smiles on their faces which was instantly infectious. They were the happiest people I had ever met on a Tuesday afternoon! The salt and chilli soft crab shell crab was perfectly seasoned. It was delicious and probably the best […]

Basement Sate Pastry Class Review

What: Private pastry classes Where: 8 Broadwick Street, London W1F 8HN Why You Should Go There: To hone your cheffing skills Favourite Thing We Ate: Lemon meringue pie (obviously) First off, Basement Sate is in impossible to find, secondly, I am fantastic at making lemon meringue pie. After sadly wandering around the streets for longer than I dare report I managed to find myself in the basement cocktail bar ready for my pastry class with their new chef Kelly Nadjarian. The kitchen is small as it is only for one person, the aforementioned highly passionate Kelly, so it was a bit of a squeeze […]

Foundation Bar Review

What: The Willy Wonka of cocktails in an underground bar Where: 5 Langley Street, London WC2H 9JA Why You Should Go There: For the wildest and wackiest selection of cocktails Favourite Thing We Drank: The Morning Glory (Absolut orient apple vodka, alcoholic yoghurt, honey, blackberries, strawberry jam and cranberry juice) it was creamy and sweet without being sickly. It’s worth mentioning that title of favourite thing we drank should not be overlooked as there was plenty (seriously plenty of competition) not only with the copious options on the menu but as in we worked our way through a sizeable chunk of them. Foundation […]
