Temper, London

It says on the homepage of Temper’s website: Barbecue, Tacos, Wine, Mezcal, Good Times, and that pretty much sums it up. Temper occupies a corner plot in one of the big new developments on Soho’s Broadwick Street, you’d be forgiven for not really realising it was there as most of the restaurant (and the magic)…

Clos Maggiore, Covent Garden

Last weekend The Boyfriend and I took a little trip to London’s ‘most romantic restaurant’ (awarded by Harden’s Restaurant Guide) to celebrate his birthday. Considering that I missed the entire event lat year as I was working abroad for a couple of months, I figured this year was my opportunity to make up for it so we…

Sīno, San Jose

If you’ve begun reading this expecting another London restaurant review, then think again! I’ve recently spent quite a bit of time in California so expect to see a few gems from across the pond popping up on here! Ironically for my first review, I’m going to begin at the end… For my last week in…

Roast Pepper, Crab & Prawn Rainbow Pasta

I’ve been indulging my pasta obsession again and have finally come up with a great recipe to use my rainbow striped pappardelle.

I picked The Refinery for a belated birthday meal with my three oldest friends from infant school, all working in…

Crab Ravioli

This is one from the archives, if you’re a regular reader, or know me well at all, you’ll know that I’m a complete pasta fiend. I can’t get enough of the stuff and would eat it every day if I could. It didn’t take me long, once I’d learned how to make my pasta from…

Bone Daddies Ramen Bar, Soho

One of my favourite things about working in Soho is that I’m spoilt for choice when it comes to great places to eat, granted there’s a fair share of naff places too, but on the most part its a gold mine. My problem is that walking the same streets every day, its so easy to…
