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…

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…

The Barbary, Covent Garden

Being labelled ‘the best restaurant in London’ gives The Barbary in Neal’s Yard a lot to live up to. The little sister of established London eatery The Palomar, the restaurant takes its inspiration from the Barbary coast. Good thing the food is amazing then…read my review on Weekend Notes here

The Woodin’s Shades, Bishopsgate

Last week I took part in a charity run for World Aids Day, which was exhilarating and rewarding. I’m not a runner so to even do something like this is a big deal for me. I’m a believer in rewarding yourself after you’ve exerted yourself, so I visited a pub in Liverpool Street to refuel…

Birthday Dinner

I haven’t posted on here for a bit, but this is something that’s worth shouting about. For my birthday a few weeks ago, my friend and I visited Cote Brasserie along London’s South Bank. I have a soft spot for French food so this lured me in. We had the chicken drizzled with garlic butter…

Vantra Vitro

Vantra Vitro is a small restaurant nestled along Oxford Street in London,  specialising in healthy food.  Everything is vegan which is why a group of us ended up there for my vegan friend Anna’ s birthday last weekend. The restaurant doesn’t sell alcohol so I drank Elderflower water instead (somebody tried the Mangoade). The food…

New Fook Lam Moon, Chinatown

I enjoyed this wonderful Chinese meal last weekend- chicken with beansprouts and egg- fried rice.  It was unexpectedly really tasty. Recommended.
