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 […]

What: The Law Society’s restaurant and barWhere: Chancery LaneWhy you should go there: For a taste of IndiaFavourite thing we had: Paneer Tikka rolled in Paratha I love Indian food; it’s my number one go to cuisine of choice with flavours coming out the hazoo, so when bar and restaurant, 113 Chancery Lane, invited us down on a special Dawat evening for their Taste of India menu we greedily accepted. After some faffing and cursing at Google Maps we found the venue, looking more like a museum building than a restaurant, but once we had entered the restaurant turned out to be […]

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.

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 […]

Mews Of Mayfair

What: Afternoon delight with unlimited Veuve ClicquotWhere: 10 Lancashire CourtWhy you should go there: To complete your lifeFavourite thing we ate: Macaroons It was my fault – I should’ve delved deeper than Google Maps, which told me the location of the restaurant was 10 Bond Street, it turns out it is 10 Lancashire court. Finding it was a testing experience to be compared to the likes of the Duke of Edinburgh’s award. Can I put this on my C.V? After half an hour of running around, stressed and sweaty – I had finally found my destination. Mews of Mayfair. It just […]

Printworks Kitchen

What: Wholesome hipster food Where: 20-26 Rosebery Avenue Clerkenwell Why You Should Go There: To continue on your quest of hipster wannabe Favourite Thing We Ate: The Pea And Mint Soup Printworks Kitchen. It sounds like a colourful, hustling bustling spot. I know we shouldn’t form expectations from just a name in our head – but we do. From the outset I could see what they were getting at, they were jumping on the whole hipster/healthy whole foods bandwagon that has dominated my early twenties thus far.  On first impression it was definitely clean here. If you had dropped something on the floor […]
