Sketch: Style over Substance in the Pink Room

If you haven’t seen or heard of the “pink room” or egg loos at Sketch, I think it’s fair to say that you’ve been living under a rock, or at least are not very well-versed in the world of Instagram.

Fabulous 698B: A Seasonal Supper Club with a Surprise

I recently enjoyed a very fun and rather unusual Saturday night. Venue: Finsbury Square Pop-Up Patio. Event: Fabulous 698B supper club. Date: Abigail. […]

Copenhagen: KöD, Where Danes Proved They Can do Cow as Well as Pig

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”).

Copenhagen: An Immense Farmer’s Market & My Favourite Lunch Spot

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.

Copenhagen: Insta-Sensations Brunchin’ at Mad & Kaffe

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.

If you’re looking for upscale comfort food created by Michelin-star chefs, then I’ve got just the place for you. Enter Barnyard.

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.

Sake No Hana: High-End Japanese in the Heart of Mayfair

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.

Salmontini: East Meets West with a Side of Smoked Salmon

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.

Shackfuyu: Japanese Junk with my Favourite Bloggers

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.

Pulia: A True Taste of Italy & the Best Burrata in London

I recently enjoyed a very special dinner at Pulia, a super cute & inviting restaurant tucked behind Borough Market.

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.

Frenchie is certainly the talk of the town, but does its reputation proceed itself?

The Modern Pantry: A Well-Deserved Celebratory Brunch

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.

Copita del Mercado: A Gem of a Tapas Find

You know those friends that you truly love, but for whatever reason never see? I sometimes feel like the easier it is to see someone the less likely it is that you will, as you kind of just expect it to happen.

Hakkasan, Hanway Place: Our 4-Year Anniversary Dinner

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.
