I realised recently that I hadn’t blogged for over a year! My excuse is that I had been planning my wedding for over a year, which took over my life for the most part! Now that the wedding is done and dusted, I will definately be more active on my blog. Will do more than take photos of food and Instagram them which is what … Continue reading Photown – a hidden gem in Alexandria
When my friend suggested going to this restaurant for our group dinner I was intrigued. I had particularly craved Japanese BBQ which I used to really enjoy at Suminoya (Sydney) but I hadn’t been there in two years whilst in London. After hearing such high praise from my friend (who lives in the area), I had high expectations for the night. And it actually exceeded my expectations! … Continue reading Mokoji Japanese BBQ
I’ve been meaning to write about Kanada-Ya for awhile and now after a few visits it has concreted my opinion that it is the best ramen I’ve had in London and possibly Sydney (as of 2 years ago). So of course I couldn’t leave London without telling you what makes it so good. Normally when you see a constant queue outside of a restaurant you … Continue reading Best ramen in London – Kanada-Ya
I started working in Mayfair last year and it was then that I noticed the lack of asian food in Mayfair. I know that Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown are walkable distances but not really convenient enough to grab a ‘quick lunch’. Amidst the stuffy posh restaurants, lebanese and usual chains, I stumbled upon this restaurant while walking along Lansdowne Row where there are a few restaurants and … Continue reading Papaya – a hidden gem in the heart of Mayfair!
Ever since arriving in London almost two years ago, I knew that I had to dine at one of Heston Blumenthal’s restaurants. Since Fat Duck temporarily relocated to Melbourne, it was no longer an option. But there was still Dinner. Last week my boyfriend surprised me by arranging dinner here and we had a wonderful evening. As you would expect from a restaurant of this … Continue reading Dinner by Heston…simply divine
I started a new role last week and its located in Camden Town. Camden Town is renowned for its colorful street markets and lively food stalls so I didn’t expect to find such a nice place for decent vietnamese food. The weather has been turning to drab lately so I needed to something to cheer myself up so I quickly googled and found Thanh Binh … Continue reading Thanh Binh restaurant, Camden Town – Best Pho in London so far!
It was a Friday night, two weeks ago, and after having some drinks at Palmer and Co, a couple of friends and I were hungry. I had heard about Cara & Co from the good ol’ Entertainment Book and had wanted to try it for awhile, and that night I was lucky enough to be with friends who were also keen 🙂 The restaurant is … Continue reading Cara & Co
Since Holy Basil opened some 5 years or so ago, I have frequently dined here and have been impressed every time with my experience. What attracts diners, I think, to this place is the alfresco feel with its large windows creating an open feel and its ambience with its traditional Thai mixed with a modernised feel. Dined here with my mum a couple of weeks … Continue reading Holy Basil! Northern Thai Cuisine
We dined at La Tratt last night after wanting to try it for a long while. We didn’t make a reservation as it was still fairly early and we luckily got a table. It quickly grew busier soon after we were seated. The service was attentive and thorough and the food was impressive. As there were three of us we wanted to sample some entrees … Continue reading La Tratt
If you ever have a hankering for charcoal chicken, Lebanese style at its best, go to El Jannah. I frequent El Jannah maybe once every quarter now, used to be every two months or so when I had my train buddy with me. I take the South Line train in peak hour on my daily commute so whenever the train stops at Granville, my 3rd … Continue reading El Jannah Restaurant – Granville
