Corazón

As my companion (EB) and I have a shared love of Mexican foods (who wouldn't really?!), were playing with the idea of a trip to Mexico itself (hello Tulum!), and had recently frequented the somewhat disappointing Breddos Tacos, we were both keen on trying out Corazón, another eatery in line for the title of London's … Continue reading Corazón

Mother

Copenhagen’s mother of all pizzerias – Mother (pun had to be made) – has landed in London and most excitingly, it’s laid its roots in my soon-to-be neck of the woods, Battersea. Though I won’t quite be a Nine Elms resident, the developing Circus West Village, underneath the trendy old arches, has a lot going … Continue reading Mother

Forza Win

Italian food, pasta specifically, and I seem to be having something of a renaissance recently. I've enjoyed many a bowl out, from the gorgeous River Cafe and trendy Palatino, to the glorious Padella and the excellent value for money Sager + Wilde. Now was the turn of Forza Win: a Peckham-based establishment offering pasta and … Continue reading Forza Win

River Café

With its iconic reputation, the River Café seemed like an apt spot for a pre-baby luncheon for my sister. Although we were celebrating new arrivals, the River Café has been a long-standing pillar of London’s high-end restaurant scene. Established in 1987, it’s enjoyed an enduring success, serving Italian fare made from the finest produce and … Continue reading River Café

Copita

I’d once been to Copita on a date for a drink of the gin kind.  This buzzy little tapas spot in the middle of Soho is, after all, well-suited for courting couples.  In Spanish, of course, “Copita” means sherry glass, which succinctly conveys the focus of this Soho wine bar. Their gin menu is extensive, featuring all sorts of … Continue reading Copita

Antipodea

You may already be familiar with Brew and its coffee – if not, see my review of this brunch haven here.  Branching out from its day-time vibes, however, the team behind Brew have set up Antipodea, an all-day Australian brasserie that converts from a laid back Melbourne hangout, serving  legendary corn fritters and All Press … Continue reading Antipodea

Sager + Wilde

I don’t often venture so far eastwards, even/especially on a Friday evening, but wine bar (and it turns out foodie paradise) Sager + Wilde on Bethnal Green’s Paradise Row (yes, infinity with the street name) had been on my radar for a while. Since my media savvy foodie friend from school seemed very keen, why … Continue reading Sager + Wilde

Palatino

In celebration of summer solstice, my companion and I finally made it to Palatino, a new Italian in the heart of Clerkenwell. We'd been meaning to try out Palatino for a while now, especially since enjoying a drink or two here during Clerkenwell’s Design Week when Palatino had hosted an evening curated by the wonderful Bompas & Parr about the relationship between food, … Continue reading Palatino

Panzanella: Turkish style

what? tomatoes, sundried tomatoes/olives, red onions, pitta chips and coriander marinated in a lemon, garlic cumin, paprika, olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing why? celebration of tomatoes and Turkish spices, quick and easy to throw together, and summery vibes
