Suvlaki, Soho

In my family, we have a slight obsession with Greek food. I grew up with Greek-Cypriot neighbours who basically became extended family and the culture/food therefore played quite a big role in mine and my sister’s upbringing. We’re always pretty excited about trying new Greek restaurants. When we heard about Suvlaki, we got there as soon…

Union Street Café, Southwark

Union Street Café is part of the Gordon Ramsey Group located just down the road from The Shard, in a fairly quiet spot in Southwark. My visit here was actually over a month ago now and I have been trying to work out what has kept me from writing about it sooner. I think it’s…

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…

Shoryu, Kingly Court

Ramen is not a new thing on the London food scene. I first tested the waters of this, to me, unknown cuisine on a visit to Bone Daddies a few years ago. I was a total ramen virgin back then and new literally nothing about Japanese food besides that they eat sushi. This is not to say…

Señor Ceviche, Kingly Court

Ceviche and Peruvian cuisine are by no means new to the London food scene. Frith Streets aptly named Ceviche has been stalwart of the Soho food scene for quite some time. However, of late, this cuisine has been getting a little more attention as several more ceviche themed restaurants have popped up across our capital….

Copita, Soho

Mediterranean food has a special place in my heart. Having spent many summers in Spain, eating way too much paella and tapas, I have fallen in love with their laid back, sharing way of eating. I love the social aspect of everyone sitting around a table together, sharing drinks and food and everyone getting to…

Sam’s Chowder House, Half Moon Bay CA

On my recent travels in California Sam’s Chowder House absolutely has to be up there as one of the stand out eating experiences. Having visited a couple of times now I make a special effort to try and visit whenever I’m over there. Perched on Half Moon Bay overlooking the water, the restaurant has spectacular views and…

Scratch, Mountain View CA

On a recent trip to California I hadn’t planned on doing any restaurant reviews as I didn’t want the blog to start turning into a travel blog, I wanted it to stay all about the food. However, I visited a couple of restaurants where the food was so good, it’d be criminal not to share…

Bistro Union, Abbeville Road

A couple of weeks ago I was well overdue a catch up with my sister having not seen each other since before Christmas! So I drove down to Clapham and stayed the weekend. When she suggested we go out for a meal locally as she lives a short walk away from Abbeville Road (well known…

Cafe Des Amis, Covent Garden

I first visited Café Des Amis about two and a half years ago with a friend, I had a lovely meal, a lovely evening and said I’d definitely come back again. The restaurant is always popping up on Open Table deals and similar and there’s even a couple of offers available on their own website so I…
