In the midst of a torrential downpour Josie & I braved the slippery streets of HK on a mission to make it to Hutong on time for our dinner reservation. As part of the Aqua restaurant group, and having heard only good things about the northern-Chinese restaurant both in London and Hong Kong...
Jason Atherton is well on his way to building a global restaurant empire and has now opened three restaurants in Hong Kong which, aside from 22 Ships, are Aberdeen Street Social (where I enjoyed a decent smashed avo on toast) and Ham & Sherry...
Much like New York, Hong Kong is paving the way when it comes to boozy brunch offerings. Though London isn't doing too badly at playing catch-up, it’s still miles behind in terms of choice and value, with the best hotels and restaurants in Hong Kong offering, in many cases, unlimited...
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.
If ya like meat, or even just food generally, or are partial to an exquisite cocktail, then Chop Shop is your dream destination.
It’s no secret I love Asian food, especially Japanese. I’m also not against indulging in a bit of opulence at times, despite a lack of ‘occasion’. So when my friends with similar such tastes suggested an evening of feasting on the world’s “caviar of meat” and the most beautifully presented delicate & delicious sashimi I’ve ever experienced, my answer was an obvious and instant yes.
Not long ago I was spoiled to a Vietnamese feast for the eyes, the belly and the soul at House of Ho, when a fab bunch of bloggers & I visited to sample star chef Ian Pengelley’s shiny new tasting menu.
Since pan-Asian is mine & Michael’s favourite cuisine and, though nothing beats Roka (confirmed once more on this occasion), we thought we’d have a change of scenery and visit its older sister, Zuma, to ‘celebrate’ (if you can truly do such a thing) Valentine’s Day.
Oblix is a contemporary grill restaurant located on the 32nd floor of the Shard, the tallest building in London, offering panoramic views of the City for you to enjoy whilst tucking into your meal, which makes for quite the special dining experience.
I do love me a good steak, so it brings me great joy to tell you about a steakhouse that I recently visited which truly deserves its moment in the limelight.
Having had a disappointing experience at City Social early last year, I must admit that I wasn’t particularly fussed about ever returning. However, thankfully I did, and I’m more than happy to say that I stand completely corrected – (nearly) everything was phenomenal.
Who doesn’t love date night? Personally, for me, nothing beats splitting a good bottle of wine and sharing an indulgent meal with a loved one.
A few weeks ago I attended my first ever supper club. But it wasn’t just any supper club – this was Luiz Hara, aka the highly regarded author of the award-winning blog The London Foodie’s, supper club.
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.
On Michael’s actual birthday, I treated him to a meal fit for a man. Steak & chips, obviously. Goodman is often proclaimed to be the best steakhouse in London, so we thought we'd see for ourselves.
