Kupp – Paddington – Scandi Bar and Dining

Kupp Paddington

A Scandinavian Inspired Dining Experience in Paddington: I must have picked one of the wettest days in May to visit Kupp.  And, with my notorious lack of any sense of direction, I quickly found myself going round in circles.  Thankfully, when I arrived at the buzzing bar-restaurant, I was greeted by friendly staff and the […]

Mamounia Lounge, Mayfair

Mamounia lounge truffled hummus

Moroccan and Lebanese Dining in Style at Mamounia Lounge: Mamounia Lounge Mayfair is just round the corner from Shepherd Market on Curzon Street itself. It’s the kind of place I’d be tempted to walk past unless I knew what was inside; a shame, because it’s really worth a visit.  The restaurant has recently been refurbished […]

Lunch at l’Escargot, Soho – Review

l'escargot soho

The Club at l’Escargot, Soho and more: It seems that ‘Old Soho’ is having something of a resurgence at the moment.  Have the foodies of London finally tired of queuing for burgers?  I have a feeling that trends in the restaurant world follow trends in fashion – and both are influenced by the state of […]

Ed Baines at Randall & Aubin Soho

Randall and Aubin - Cod

A Sunday Lunch at Randall & Aubin: I must have visited Randall & Aubin when it first opened.  I can remember meeting a friend fresh off a flight from Australia and wandering around Soho looking for somewhere to eat.  He was far more au-fait with the places to go and pulled me into Randall & Aubin […]

All about the Albany, Great Portland Street

The Albany

The Great British Pub – An Evening at the Albany Since I no longer work in Central London, I’d all but forgotten the bliss of after work drinks.  Particularly on a summer evening when the sun is still bright; the last thing anyone should want to do is travel down into the depths of the […]

Lamb at Table 9, 108 Marylebone

Table 9, the Chef’s Table at 108 108 Brasserie is restaurant for the Marylebone Hotel right in the heart of an area of central London that almost seems to deserve the title ‘Marylebone Village’.  Like most hotel restaurants it is open to all, both hotel residents and guests,  from breakfast through to supper. The restaurant […]

Vapiano: Italian soul

Vapiano Southbank

Southwark Soul at Vapiano Bankside: Vapiano is a different concept in a dinning. The idea behind Vapiano (which currently has three London branches, added to those around the globe) is to offer great quality Italian food, freshly prepared to order in a relaxed environment which is a million miles away from the overly charactured competitor […]

Sakura at Sake no Hana, Picadilly, London

Sakura at sake no hana

Cherry Blossom Lunch – Sakura Celebration at Sake no Hana: An unexpected benefit from blogging is the insight I’ve gained into other cultures.  Travel, of course, is the main opportunity to learn how others live, but London’s multicultural food scene can also provide a new perspective.  I love good quality Japanese food and I find […]

Cafe Pistou: Celebrating the start of spring with Noilly Prat

Cafe Pistou

Exmouth Market in London is one of the best foodie streets I hadn’t heard of, let alone visited or eaten at till recently when I was invited to Cafe Pistou, a recent addition to what looks a burgeoning street of delectable treats in Clerkenwell. Wandering along Exmouth Market I wasn’t sure what to expect, except […]

Hibiscus - sofitel st james

Le Tea en Rose – a French style afternoon tea in London: Waterloo Place is home to the five star Sofitel London St James, an unmistakably French styled hotel.  I headed there a few days ago to preview a new floral afternoon tea, a limited edition French take on that most celebrated of English events, […]
