Eating in London

Category

August has been a busy and exciting month discovering new places and visiting some Insta famous ones. 39 Steps coffee, Soho This was a surprise find. I have never seen it or been to it before but it is perfect and I definitely recommend a visit if you are in Soho. Even if you are not in Soho, put it on your list to visit. The pancakes are to die for – I cannot wait to go back and eat another portion as they are perfect. Fluffy, not too sweet and just with the right fruit to sauce ratio. The…

It was a new territory for me when I got invited to my first immersive dining experience in London. I did not know what to expect or how to feel about it, however I was really curious, so I headed off to Pedler street station. The Murdér Express The Murdér Express is a luxury train carriage on Pedler Street station, where you walk through and you step back in time – to the beautiful 50s. The platform, the people, the drinks the bar, the light – it all says goodbye Instagram hello pearls and feathers. Get a drink by the…

A mix and match this June with my favourite discoveries and some old favourites. The beauty of London is that it is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to spots to have a cuppa. Zedel One unexpected new favourite this month. I mean have I been living under a rock never to have visited this place before? Smack down in the middle of Piccadilly Circus? I was a bit shocked with my own lack of knowledge about this place’s existence. Thanks to my beautiful friend @anamaria.marin I got to discover it. Brace yourselves – it is huge.…

May has been a busy month, hopping around London’s beautiful coffee shops and restaurants. I have chosen two clear favourites due to their authenticity, personality and love for tradition. Taking you on a quick trip between Soho and Neal’s Yard. Lina stores, Greek Street Talk about perfection, Lina stores has the whole package. Beautiful, pistachio facade, pastel tones interior and the food is mamma mia. Lina Stores (the brand) was established 75 years ago by a lady called Lina, serving authentic Italian produce. Fast forward, May 2018 and I got to enjoy it too, in the newly refurbished space, now…

I did promise myself I will write this every month but I somehow missed March, so we jump straight into April. I know it has only been mere 10 days from the start of the month but I think I already found my favs, so here they are. Abuelo Coffee, Covent Grden The new kid on the block in Covent Garden, and it is a worth a visit. Opened just over 2 weeks ago, this new joiner from down under is a must on your London list. The interior is an Instagrammer’s dream brown and green tones, plants and candles.…

I am once again finding myself a bit lost for words but O-M-G! Sketch is a place of another realm. I have wanted to go there for so long. Every time I was meant to, something came up and I did not manage to fulfil my desire. A few weeks ago, I got a lovely early birthday surprise by the lovely Luke (@lukecabrahams) to have brunch on a Saturday. The ambience: Pictures do not do this place justice. The whole ambience is meant for all senses. The music, the staff, the decor, the smells – everything works together in making…

I thought it is a new year and a new me, so why not start a new tradition? I will share a wrap up of my favourite brunch spots every month, tell you all about what I loved and share some sneak peaks of food and interiors. Some will be all time favourites and some will be new arrivals. The Riding house cafe This beauty is nestled in Maryleborne. Make sure you book a table because it is busy, or it gets really busy after 10ish. The coffee is amazing and the pancake are to die for. For bookings, visit…

I have a confession to make – I am a recently converted lover of Indian food. I know, face palming myself as I say that. Somehow, for a very long time I thought it was too spicy for me and I kept on avoiding it, as I do not necessarily like spicy food. I am so annoyed on all the years of goodness I missed out. When I received an invite to go and experience the newly opened Bombay Bustle in Mayfair, I was excited to now feed my Indian food hunger. Have you been yet? Do you like Indian food?…

Taj 51 Buckingham Suites and Residences is a luxury 5 star hotel in the heart of London and  a part of the famous Taj Group. Located literally a 2 minute walk from Buckingham Palace, few addresses can be more prime that this. I had the pleasure of visiting Kona for an afternoon tea experience last week and it was so blissful. London is so busy and I treasure the moments in which I can just hide away from the hustle and bustle and relax. Kona, is a gem in the heart of the properties comprising the hotel, tucked within the…

My mum came to visit a few weeks ago and I wanted to take her to brunch. That extremely popular concept in the UK and the US, which nobody in Bulgaria really practices. I wanted to take her somewhere nice and special and I found Esca in Clapham. Priding themselves as a people’s place, Esca combines Italian and Celtic routes. We all know, there is nothing better than Italian hospitality. Esca offers  rich breakfast, brunch and lunch menu including mouthwatering, authentic Italian pasta,  all the brunch necessities such as avo on toast and then my personal favourite part – the…
