No bum notes at Rock Star Sushi Bar

There are dozens of places to sample sushi in London and we’re happily working our way down the list. On Friday we decided try a place no one we knew had heard of, in an area we don’t really know at all. Merton Abbey Mills is on the site of one of the most important monasteries of… Continue reading No bum notes at Rock Star Sushi Bar

GilgaMESS – but I have high hopes for next time

Last week Matt and I went to Gilgamesh in Camden for the first time. We had been tempted by an offer I saw online for an opportunity to try out two courses from their new a la carte menu for £14. Knowing that the restaurant was not cheap we thought this seemed like a great… Continue reading GilgaMESS – but I have high hopes for next time

Chiltern Firehouse – tasty but not special enough for the hype!

We did it! We got a table at Chiltern Firehouse! It took a bit of wrangling and a few terse emails regarding their non-existent booking policy but on Saturday we finally ate there. This Marylebone restaurant has been hyped up more than any other I can recall recently. It has had a steady stream of… Continue reading Chiltern Firehouse – tasty but not special enough for the hype!

Looks like ramen is here to stay

Apparently there are 34,488 ramen shops in Japan and judging by recent openings, London appears to be trying to compete. A walk around Soho will throw up dozens of new options for some slurpy noodles. We chose a boiling hot Wednesday to go and sample  this speciality at Tonkotsu in Dean Street. This is a… Continue reading Looks like ramen is here to stay

There’s nothing wrong with substance over style!

Just this weekend the chain Honest Burgers opened a branch near Tooting Broadway tube – it already has restaurants in Brixton Market, Soho, King’s Cross and Camden. Eating curry on a baking hot night may not be everyone’s cup of tea… Continue reading There’s nothing wrong with substance over style!

Ibiza – clubs, cocktails and cuisine!

Food might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Ibiza. The ‘White Isle’ is known for its nightlife, celebrity tourists and drugs probably. I’ve just got back from a five night trip to ‘Beefa’ with four of my girlfriends. We decided we wanted to go before we turn 30… Continue reading Ibiza – clubs, cocktails and cuisine!

The Cornish Tiger isn’t roaring just quite yet…

Battersea Rise in Clapham Junction is a great place for eating whether you fancy a trusty chain or something a little more off piste. At the top of the road near Clapham Common is a relatively new restaurant I hadn’t noticed. It used to be a Mexican but is now called Cornish Tiger – a… Continue reading The Cornish Tiger isn’t roaring just quite yet…

Toot Toot! It’s time for chicken!

Tooting is a fantastic place to eat but every now and again you feel like something different from one of the delicious curries which is why it’s great that some new and interesting restaurants are popping up (but they’re not ‘pop ups’). Chicken Shop on Tooting High Street does simplicity and gorgeous flavours perfectly. It… Continue reading Toot Toot! It’s time for chicken!
