Chotto Matte has been right at the top of my list for a long while now, but when your favourite restaurant serves similar food at the same price just a few streets over, it’s easy for it to just stay at the top of that list.
If ya like meat, or even just food generally, or are partial to an exquisite cocktail, then Chop Shop is your dream destination.
I recently enjoyed a very fun and rather unusual Saturday night. Venue: Finsbury Square Pop-Up Patio. Event: Fabulous 698B supper club. Date: Abigail. […]
For my final night in the motherland and in the company of three growing men, I could think of no better place for dinner than KöD (which translates as “meat”).
We woke up to glorious sunshine, and decided to nurse our aching heads with a trip to Torvehallerne, which describes itself “not as a supermarket, but as a super market”, which is entirely accurate.
A couple of weeks ago I flew back to the motherland for a long weekend to visit some of my favourite Danes, namely those that I went to summer school with. Since the standard reaction when I tell someone that I went to “summer school” is generally pity and an assumption that my parents wanted to punish me, let me start by assuring you that you needn’t feel sorry for me.
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.
Michael & I were long overdue a dinner with our favourites, Josie & Rory (who we toured Sicily with), and, since they’re as big a fans of Asia as we are, when I spotted the more than reasonable sounding Bookatable star deal for 5 courses and half a bottle of wine for £35pp at Sake No Hana, deciding where to go for our group date didn’t take all that much time.
Despite minimal sleep, jetlag and it being a Sunday night, I’ll always make an effort for a birthday celebration, so pulled myself together and over to Belgravia for a sumptuous celebratory dinner at Salmontini.
I must admit that few things make me happier than sharing good food with my favourite people. My ‘internet friends’ have become a big and special part of my life so enjoying a meal together with them is now considered a mealtime very well spent.
I recently enjoyed a very special dinner at Pulia, a super cute & inviting restaurant tucked behind Borough Market.
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.
Frenchie is certainly the talk of the town, but does its reputation proceed itself?
Having just finished the Cancer Research UK London Winter run, the family was in desperate need of warmth, shelter and, most importantly, food. Having heard many a good thing about The Modern Pantry, I reserved us a table for four a couple of weeks in advance.
It’s hard to believe that Michael & I have spent the last 4 years together, but I guess time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve shared an abundance of incredible experiences and made so many great memories that will stay with me forever.
