SUPPERCLUB AT THE LITTLE YELLOW DOOR

London is an ever-evolving beast of a city. It moves at 100mph and if you don’t keep up with it, you can easily miss all the new openings around the city. Every week, my inbox is flooded with newsletters filled with news of a new restaurant concept, a must-see pop-up,…

SHUANG SHUANG, CHINATOWN

Every now and then, my Instagram and Twitter feeds suddenly fill up with variations of the same photo from the newest restaurant to hit the London food scene. Recently its been Chinese hot pots at newcomer Shuang Shuang in Chinatown. On a cold and windy Wednesday night last week, it shone out into…

HOPPERS, SOHO

The one thing I love about my day job is that my office is in one of my favourite parts of London….Soho. I absolutely adore Soho. I love the energy of it and I used to love the edginess and grittiness of it, although that has been slowly edged out…

PIQUET, FITZROVIA

A couple of weeks ago my friend Felicity and I headed to Newman Street to visit Piquet, the first solo project from chef Allan Picket (former head chef at Plateau, Aviator, Galvin Bistro de Luxe, and Orrery) and backed by André Blais (founder of Bodean’s BBQ). Felicity had been there a couple of…

HKK, SHOREDITCH

As a fan of Hakkasan, I was delighted to be invited to an 8 course tasting menu at the Hakkasan Group’s latest venture HKK , by Square Meal a couple of weeks ago. Described as ‘bespoke Cantonese fine dining’, this isn’t a place I would normally be able to afford on an average…

BRUNCH AT FIELDS, CLAPHAM COMMON

As you may know, I’m always on the lookout for a good brunch. I recently listed some of my favourite brunch spots, which included the fabulous M1LK in Balham, and last weekend I visited their sister cafe on Clapham Common…Fields. Fields doesn’t necessarily look like a cafe from the outside…

BARRAFINA, DRURY LANE

Last week my friend Charlotte and I had the most fantastic meal at the new Barrafina on Drury Lane, Covent Garden. We initially tried to get into the Adelaide Street branch but with the wait being over an hour, they directed us to the Drury Lane branch which had a smaller queue,…

SHACKFUYU, SOHO

Working on Carnaby Street, I feel rather spoiled when it comes to food. I am surrounded by a ridiculous amount of fantastic restaurants which I can get to in a hop, skip and a jump. A couple of minutes walk and I am in the heart of Soho. Lunchtimes are…

NASHVILLE…a foodie’s dream!

Every year I go away for my birthday. My thought process is pretty much ‘if it doesn’t happen in the UK, it doesn’t happen’.  Hence I’m a lot younger than I ‘technically’ am, and that’s just the way I like it! This year I was struggling to come up with…

DIM SUMMER AT PING PONG

Ping Pong is a contemporary Chinese Dim Sum restaurant in London. There are 8 of them dotted across the capital: Soho, Westbourne Grove, Wembley, Southbank, Westfield Stratford, St. Katharine Docks, St Christopher’s Place and St Paul’s. I’m not normally a fan of chains but I do like Ping Pong. More often than…

BRUNCH AT M1LK, BALHAM

I love brunch. There really is nothing better at the weekend than hanging out with your friends over good food and a few bloody mary’s/proseccos.  My weekend brunches are probably my favourite meals of the week and I love looking for new places to go. Recently, I was rather surprised when…

On Friday night my good friend Maggie and I met up for dinner at one of Glasgow’s newest restaurant, Porter & Rye. Situated in the hip Finnieston end of Argyle Street, Porter & Rye is being heralded as Glasgow’s first ‘molecular restaurant’, serving fine dry-aged meats, small plate dining and…
