I have moved
A little while ago I decided that to make the most of the Listings page I was trying to keep on top of, I should move to a better platform. And I've decided to move my blog posts there too. So, while it doesn't look like much is going on here, you can still...

Cellar Door, 10th November
It took me about five years to actually get to Cellar Door
and it was a total anticlimax. The space itself is pretty cool – it’s a
repurposed public toilet in the middle of Aldwych. You’d never know it was
there unless you knew it was there. Downstairs they...

Dum Biryani House, 10th November
I was unexpectedly contacted by Dhruv, the man behind DUM
Biryiani, newly opened in Soho, inviting me to review the place. He said he
liked my blog – clearly he has good taste, which boded well for his new
restaurant. Dum might sound like an odd choice for ...

Star at Night (London Gin Club), 9th November
I don’t know why I was so taken aback by the amount of gin
the London GIN Club had but it was a little overwhelming – how was I to choose?
So many gins. ALL the gins. To be mixed with Fever Tree tonic (natch) and
interesting little garnishes – like plum, or...

Where the Pancakes Are, 8th October
Weekends to me mean brunch, and brunch very often means
pancakes. The fluffy American kind (even though I’m a lover of the thin,
English kind too). When I saw Where the Pancakes Are had opened up I was
delighted. They’ve set up in the newly created area tha...

Souvlaki Street, 5th October
I came across Souvlaki Street in a blog post by Little
London Observationist where she said she regularly indulges in their souvlaki
when she rarely visits the same place twice. I am much the same – even if I
really like a place, there’s always somewhere ne...

Hill & Szrok and The Gibson, 28th September
There’s very little point in going to Hill & Szrok if
you don’t eat meat. They started as a Butchery and cookshop in Broadway market
and their pub is pretty much an excuse to show off the meat they butcher.
Having said that, there are a few sides which are ...

Fanny Nelson's, 22nd September
I had a plan. I would try three libations of each sort on
offer – one cocktail, one wine and one draught beverage. But best laid plans
and all that… I did not stay long enough to complete the mission. Nor was I
able to try as much of the food as I would hav...

Padella, 19th September
I’ve been itching to get to Padella. I never used to be a
huge pasta fan, but ever since having some silky smooth and buttery pasta at
Vasco and Piero, I have been searching for other Italian places to give me the
same experience (preferably for less money)...

Walluc, 1st September
Well, that was the worst meal I’ve had in recent memory. I didn’t think you could go far wrong with dipping things in
melted cheese but Walluc is here to prove otherwise. I had high hopes –
suspecting that it might be a rather overlooked gem on Redchurch st...
