A little bit of Scoff & Banter

I haven’t posted on here for a bit because I’ve been at Green Man festival in Crickhowell. This is a lovely festival with such a chilled vibe. I had a great few days with friends, listening to music and relaxing in the sunshine (and sheltering from the rain!) On a completely unrelated note, a little…

Eat Like A Greek

Souvlaki is Greece’s favourite street food. A healthier alternative to fast food, it is sold everywhere in Greece but there are plenty of places to get it elsewhere, especially in London. Also, it is delicious. I headed down to the Great British Food Festival at Chiswick House a few weeks ago and sampled their gorgeous…

Eating My Way Through London: Bellanger

Bellanger has the feel of a neighbourhood place, rather than a trendy London eaterie. That might be due to its location in the twinkly, cosy section of Upper Street in Islington. Apparently Bellanger is ‘inspired by the Alsatian brasseries of Paris’. If you’re not down with Alsatian dining, then expect to be a little more…

Beignets and mousse au chocolat

Beignets with cinnamon sauce and mousse au chocolat with a strawberry- the question is: are you going to share? Cafe Rouge, Hays Galleria, London Bridge

Kerb InKERBator Weekender

Kerb InKERBator Weekender at London’s Southbank Centre is a foodie’s dream. Over the course of a weekend, street food sellers offer up a selection of tasty treats for just £5, in a bid to shape the future of London street food. A festival of street food and flavours? What’s not to love? Cally Munchie

Eating My Way Through London: Maltby Street Market

Maltby Street Market is a hidden gem, a quirky version of its neighbour Borough Market, although without the crowds and the tourists. It is bustling and vibrant, offering a selection of groceries, breads, meats and cheeses. However, it is also ideal for lunch and I defy anyone to walk down there and not feel their…

Eating My Way Through London: Borough Market

I do love a food market. The most famous one in London is Borough Market in Southwark, which is open from Monday- Saturday. The market has stood on the site since the thirteenth century and is a big draw for tourists and Londoners alike. The market is a foodie paradise. One tip I would give…

About last night…Mexican authenticity

I came across Santo Remedio completely by accident, purely because I’ve walked by it a few times and thought it looked cosy. It was a happy accident though, as Santo Remedio has appeared on several lists of the best Mexican restaurants in London. I adore Mexican food so this is my idea of a good…

Meatballs Al Forno

This is probably the ideal lunchtime dish for me. The meatballs were succulent and the sauce was rich and full of flavour. Zizzi, Victoria

Tapas at Salvador and Amanda

Salvador and Amanda is a beautiful and authentic Spanish restaurant, located in London’s Leicester Square. Although it’s been there for around 15 years, I wasn’t actually aware of it until my team held our Christmas party there last month. The restaurant boasts a surrealist art- deco interior, in which patrons are encased in curtained- off…
