My favourite food festival of the year ‘Soho Food Feast‘ is back on June 8th & 9th.
What sets this culinary festival apart from the others? Not only is it for a good cause, but it also has more of an intimate, community feel in comparison to the larger festivals out there….oh and it’s dirt cheap.
Soho Food Feast brings together some of London’s most high-profile and highly respected chefs, restaurateurs and producers in support of Soho Parish School. Continue reading →
‘Elsa, WAY too much information, that’s so inappropriate, are you actually going out to seek men with kids…. you wh*re?’
‘No, you nutter I’ve just heard good things about their super creamy head.’ (which is a beer, folks)
Bone Daddies (opened by ex Zuma and Nobu chef Ross Shonhan) is the (newish) rock ‘n’ roll joint in Soho which specialises in ramen, ramen ….oh yeah and more ramen. Continue reading →
Messi Palate is pretty darn bossy. I mean, I like to tell you guys where to go and when to do it. Sometimes it’s a polite recommendation (at least that’s what I want you to believe) but mostly, if the event is too damn good to miss – it’s most definitely a ‘GO and GO NOW’ approach.
I also believe in being extra spontaneous and that’s how I like my readers to be (at times). For instance, I woke up this morning and decided I wanted to go to Beirut, so that’s what i’m going to do this week (kidding, my boss said no) but I will be going to the closest thing ….and think you should too.
Mile High is back with a vengeance and is bringing Beirut to the streets of London. Continue reading →
I love it when I randomly make friends with people who truly inspire me with their talents and passions, Mr Charlie Stocker is most certainly one of them. I am so excited to announce that he is now holding his first pop-up in London for two days and two days only on the 29th and 30th April in Clerkenwell.
Charlie Stocker is only 21 and already has a culinary CV that most chefs would die for. He has done small stages in the kitchens of The Ledbury, Fat Duck, Sketch among other Michelin restaurants in London. Continue reading →
There’s great Chinese food, there’s bad Chinese food, there’s the modernised, there’s the traditional, there’s the GSM-filled shite and then there’s… Naga.
I don’t have a reason to lie about enjoying a dining experience. I write what I feel and what I want. Yes, sometimes I may write over-dramatic statements such as ‘It’s the best (insert food item here) i’ve had in my life’ but that’s my way of urging you guys to go there to enjoy the place as much as I have (some people need that extra push after all).
So here’s a statement for y’all and I’ll keep it short and sweet. ‘If you love Chinese food or even if you don’t you will fall in love with Naga’, so it’s definitely worth a trip to High St Kensington. Continue reading →
Slice Girls Pizzas is Ridley Road Market Bar’s newest street food partner. Come to their launch party on Sunday 24th March from 3pm-11pm, for free pizzas and a traditional Routemaster double-decker bus playing all the 90s hits. Continue reading →
On Monday 18th March, the critically acclaimed (and Michelin recommended) restaurant The Crooked Well in Camberwell, are inviting film buffs (and peeps who like a good old freebie) to join them for a free screening of ‘Me and You and Everyone We know’ to celebrate the launch of The Camberwell Free Film Festival.
Guests will be able to indulge in decadent luxury snacks such as complimentary gourmet popcorn and hotdogs prepared by The Crooked Well kitchen. A selection of cocktails mixed with their own range of cordial, syrups and infusions will also be on offer. Continue reading →
President Obama and I have a lot in common you know. I mean we’re both black, we both believe in world peace, gay marriage, equal medical rights (and all that crap) but more importantly….we go absolutely crazy for the menu at Kua ‘Aina.
Kua ‘Aina is located in Carnaby Street and it’s the only joint in Europe (they’re spread across Tokyo and Hawaii). They serve burgers, salads and succulent chargrilled sandwiches – Hawaii style. Continue reading →
Nibblr is a website which aims to bring users together over shared interests around food and with great company over a tasty dinner. The site allows users to browse and book exclusive restaurants whilst matching interests and reviews of food.
The reason why I’m seriously digging this site is because it’s aimed at gastronomes, travelers, networkers and anyone else with a great appetite. It’s a really lovely concept if you want to meet new people over a gourmet dinner. A lot of people on business for instance, may not have anybody to dine with, so rather than dining alone, a Nibblr dinner would be the perfect solution. Continue reading →
OK so you’re hungry…you want to gather some mates to eat, it’s too late to call it a lunch but way too early for it to be a dinner, so what on earth do you call it? You call it….Le Drunch of course (duh!)
Le Drunch is a Parisian concept and a less formal, later in the day affair usually between 3pm-6pm, but now the trend is hitting London Town.
From March 15th-17th and March 21st-24th at the Maille Boutique in Spitalfields, you’ll have the opportunity to ‘Drunch’ it and sample a menu devised by none other than two-starred Michelin chef Hélène Darozze and it’ll be TOTALLY FREE. Continue reading →
