Dalston Street Food Market, London

Dalston Street Food Market, London

Finally, we are getting to the point in our lives where we do not spend our Saturday in bed, groaning about our hangovers (and probably our behaviour) from the night before. I say this with the mindset that actually, we do not spend every Saturday in this way, just maybe one every couple of months....
Dabbous

Dabbous

This name probably rings a couple of bells for a few of you, although annoyingly for me, I am guessing it resonated about 2 years ago when this restaurant first opened. The brain-child of Ollie Dabbous who at 32, opened his first restaurant in London; the self-titled Dabbous on Whitfield Street. Having received his Michelin...

Food at 52 – Katherine Frelon of La Ferme de la Lochere

         Well, goodness gracious me!. What a feast that was. Katherine Frelon, my life has changed and all for the better. So, I guess if I were to be hit by a bus right now, I’d leave this world a happy, half stone heavier, waddling dumpling duck. But here I am, to tell...

The King of Ladies Man

As many of you Londoners must know, the Breakfast Club is possibly the popular breakfast joint in town. Slowly, it has spread its wings to Soho and now (finally) a bit further west to Battersea. With this reproduction and gradual migrations, it has spawned something else.  I know it has a conjoined secret bar in...
Dans Le Noir

Dans Le Noir

This was another one of those urban legends of London, “you know that restaurant where you eat in the dark and you are served by blind waiters.” Oh yes, that old chestnut. We have all heard it, but no-one I knew had ever been… Until now…. We went to see this for ourselves. We booked...
The Harwood Arms, Fulham

The Harwood Arms, Fulham

In London, finding a good Sunday lunch can be quite a challenge. Many places to eat don’t offer a traditional Sunday roast in light of more jazzy things on the menu, and many offer a substandard quality of “carvery,” moonlighting as the feast that it should rightfully be. Notes such as an Englishman and his castle...
Mongolian Grill & Hot Pot

Mongolian Grill & Hot Pot

During  the miserable January that we all had to endure, I was desperately seeking something fun and different to do to raise us from our wintery depression. London is a vibrant and multicultural city so I thought that someone must have some to celebrate now and I was looking to jump on thir bandwagon. Then...
The Disappearing Dining Club - Back in Five Minutes

The Disappearing Dining Club – Back in Five Minutes

During this ‘dry January,’ ‘dreary January,’ ‘oh the start of a-whole-new-me’ January…I’ve been sort of quite good. Less boozing, more staying in, a bit o’ excercise and even yoga.. Which has all been great, but you can imagine my excitement when the opportunity arose to go to Back in Five Minutes, a night curated as...
The Cinnamon Club

The Cinnamon Club

When I got back to work in January, amidst the junk of my email inbox, a toptable email surfaced. Normally I would have waved it aside, knowing most of the offers would be desperate restaurants I had never heard of advertising meal deals I didn’t want. Then something caught my eye: The Cinnamon Club in...

Johnny Jeffrey’s Disappearing Dining Club at the Great Barn

As many of you will already now, we disappeared down to Devon for a fun-and-food-filled weekend, courtesy of the lovely Johnny and Allan. Just to give you a bit of background, the DDC was originally pop up restaurants in London. But, moving with the times, they have extended their reach to the Great Barn in...

The Disappearing Dining Club

THE DISAPPEARING DINING CLUB The Disappearing Dining Club. Where do I begin? We had been looking forward to it for such a long time. I had even considered making a countdown caterpillar…but then I remembered that I wasn’t 10 anymore. But the weekend finally arrived and, despite the fact that all of us friends had...
