Eating in London

Category

I have not done this feature for awhile but here we are back at it. Let’s talk food because who doesn’t love a bit of inspiration? June is the month of summer and also Taste of London, so I got inspired to get back to my foodie talks. Taste of London is this huge food showcase, where some of the best restaurants in London come together, to give you a taste of their menus. On top of that, you get to see some new,, up and coming places, as well as street food. Orasay Small, elegant and a reverence to…

If you have asked me what do I know about Rosé Champagne prior to last week, I probably would have said I know it’s rose in colour. However, I attended a fabulous masterclass of Rosé champagne pairing and tasting and I learnt oh so much. I have never been a person who understands wine (like the people who can taste, swirl and comment smartly on what they are drinking), I just drink what they give me and say mmm. If someone asked me to about champagne, it gets even worse. Not anymore. Following this fabulous lunch and masterclass with the…

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?…
