BURGER & LOBSTER, SOHO

I’ve been trying to get into Burger & Lobster for ages but I can never seem to get in.  I’m always met with a queue and a waiting list. Last week however, I was off work so I took the chance to get there early and secure a table. I…

SUNDAY ROAST AT HAWKSMOOR, COVENT GARDEN

Last weekend my friends and I went to the renowned steakhouse, Hawksmoor, in Covent Garden to celebrate our friend Faiza’s birthday. The Observer awarded Hawksmoor the accolade of Best Sunday Roast in 2010. Unfortunately it just lost out to The Bull and Last in Highgate in 2011 but it was still…

AUTOMAT, MAYFAIR

I have been trying to get into Burger & Lobster for months now but every time I try there’s either a huge queue or something happens and plans change.  So when my wonderful friends Lucy, Jane and Dawn decided we were way overdue for a catch up,  I suggested trying it…

TSUNAMI, CLAPHAM

I had a bit of an odd day on Saturday.  I stayed up late on the Friday night to watch the opening ceremony of the London Olympics (the procession of the athletes went on forever!), which I loved.  I think Danny Boyle did us all proud.  But it meant I…

GOING VEGETARIAN AT THE GATE, ISLINGTON

A few weeks ago I saw a review for The Gate restaurant in Islington in the Metro written by Marina O’Loughlin. I’m always on the lookout for new restaurants and I was particularly interested in this one as its a vegetarian restaurant. I have been flirting with the idea of…

40 MALTBY STREET…again!

I first ate at 40 Maltby Street in May and ever since I posted my review my friend Carmen has been on at me to go with her. 40 Maltby Street is a wine bar attached to Gergovie Wines, an independent supplier dealing with organic producers in Italy, France and…

MISHKIN’S, COVENT GARDEN…again!

Last week I went to my current restaurant crush, Mishkins…again!  I first went in March (last post) and it sparked an obsession.  I have been several times since and keep taking friends so as to spread the word. In short, Mishkin’s is a sort of non-kosher Jewish deli…with cocktails and…

MISHKIN’S & OPERA TAVERN, COVENT GARDEN

Last Wednesday, my best friend Carmen and I met up for dinner. We’ve both been so busy lately we hadn’t seen each other for a couple of weeks which is unusual for us since we live round the corner from one another. We wanted to have a nice bite to…

CREPERIE DU MONDE, HACKNEY

As you may have seen from my previous post, I spent a lovely day in East London on Saturday with my friend Cassie who took me to her favourite creperie on Chatsworth Road, Lower Clapton, just a 5 minute walk from Homerton overground station. Creperie du Monde is a lovely little…

José, Bermondsey

Last Tuesday, I had the most wonderful night with my ultimate eating partner and treasured friend, Paul. It was a last minute night out which made it even more lovely. We both fancied a catch up over a few glasses of wine and a bite to eat. Just as I…

40 MALTBY STREET, LONDON

Last Thursday, I met up with my lovely friends Lisa and Bronwyn for a bite to eat after work. I wanted to try out 40 Maltby Street as I’d been hearing a lot of talk about it lately. Maltby Street in Bermondsey hosts a fabulous food market every Saturday out…

COPITA, SOHO

Ok, this is going to have to be a quick one because I’m in danger of sounding like Copita’s stalker! I’m beginning to get worried that whenever I walk through their door they’re thinking “Jesus…her again??” I was in there on at lunchtime on Tuesday trying out their burger but I…
