So, just in case you missed the memo repeated in many a previous post, Aqua is my favourite restaurant in Hong Kong. Having visited for dinner 5 times now and experienced their incredible value bottomless brunch, I can honestly say that the standard at Aqua is...

Aqua: Infinity Brunch With A View

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...

Duck & Waffle: Birthday Dining in the Clouds

So this post is a little late to the game but better late than never. If you care to remember it was my birthday in June and I celebrated the day dining high in the sky at Duck & Waffle together with a handful of my favourite girls...

Roka, Aldwych: Birthday Celebrations Han Setto Brunching

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.

Chop Shop: Snacks, Bites, Jars, Planks, Chops, Steaks and Bangin’ Cocktails

If ya like meat, or even just food generally, or are partial to an exquisite cocktail, then Chop Shop is your dream destination.

Engawa: Experiencing the “Caviar of Meat” and Sushi & Sashimi of Dreams

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.

House of Ho: Sensational Authentic Fine-Dining Vietnamese

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.

Zuma: Valentine’s Day Feasting on Japanese Delights

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.

City Social: Take Two & Totally Worth It

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.

Luiz Hara Supper Club: A Homemade Japanese & Nikkei Feast

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.

Roka, Aldwych: Premium Tasting Menus Galore

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.

Goodman: LDN’s Best Steak & Chips For the Birthday Boy

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.
