It’s become a bit of a family tradition to celebrate my birthday at Roka, Charlotte Street, having done so for the past 3 years and doing so again in just over a week (don’t worry, I am going to spare you from another review!). Seeing how fond I am of this tradition and my favourite London restaurant, it felt only natural to treat some of my closest friends to the same experience for their birthdays.

So, if you didn’t already know, I love Roka. As in, loooooove Roka. Honestly, I think I should get paid for the amount of positive advertising I do for them! Hence I’ve already reviewed Roka, Charlotte Street twice, once back in May, and again for my birthday meal in June.
For the past 3 years my ‘family’ birthday night has meant drinks at Oscar Bar & Restaurant in the Charlotte Street Hotel, followed by dinner at Roka, which, if you are a regular reader, you will know is my favourite restaurant in the whole wide world, and is just a few metres walk away.
Last weekend Michael and I enjoyed an impromptu date night at my all-time, hands-down, a-million-times-over, favourite restaurant in London, Roka Restaurant on Charlotte Street. But this time, it was different.
I can’t say that vegetarian restaurants are generally particularly high on my list to visit having had a mixed but overall good experience at Mildred’s and a shocking one at The Wild Food Cafe, but with The Gate’s recent prolonged moment in the spotlight, I thought it was worth giving a try...

May turned out to be a wonderful month full of fun, friends, family and (a little) sunshine. Although I honestly cannot believe it’s now June, aka we are HALFYWAY TO CHRISTMAS, and it’s my birthday month; both of which I’m overly excited about, albeit very scared that my life is disappearing before my eyes!
Please someone tell me that it’s not already April. I honestly don’t understand how it’s even possible. MY LIFE IS DISAPPEARING. On a brighter note, at least I can say that I’ve had lots of fun so far in 2016, albeit at the expense of my New Year’s resolutions (don’t worry body, April onwards is back on track).
