Brighton Supper Clubs & Tabl

People sometimes ask me, ‘So what’s the current foodie trend?’ I find this question a bit cringe, as in my opinion if something has reached the point of being a ‘trend’ it is probably a bit crap, like Crocs, or ‘cronuts’.

Having said that, one ‘wave’ of food happenings I have noticed and am getting slightly addicted to is the pop-ups and supper clubs that are taking over London and now Brighton. Continue Reading →

Afternoon T at Boyd’s Brasserie, Trafalgar Square

Boyd’s Brasserie is glam.

Just a short skip from Trafalgar Square, it’s nestled in 8 Northumberland Avenue Hotel.
I can’t comment on the hotel itself, but the restaurant is opulent and inviting. A grand bar, high ceilings, glittering chandeliers and marble walls. It’s a nod to it’s Victorian roots.
I arrived THIRSTY on a warm July afternoon to try its freshly launched afternoon tea. Continue Reading →

On the roof with Q, Oxford Circus

Camden grill restaurant ‘Q’ has arrived at the roof of Selfridges for the summer and aims to be the number one alfresco pop up in London.  I have to admit this pop-up is really impressive. Strutting through Selfridges department store and getting in the lift straight to the roof, met by freshly laid grass, open-air tables, deck chairs in the sunshine and glasses of prosecco and strawberries Continue Reading →

Sam’s Brasserie Chiswick

Sam’s Brasserie & Bar is a big bouncy beach ball of a restaurant, with colourful décor and a young, family friendly vibe.

This restaurant would be best described as a joyful all-rounder, with a welcoming friendly atmosphere, and the sort of menu that would appeal to the most fussy or basic eater. I went for the Nashville Hot Chicken with House slaw and Gherkin Continue Reading →

The Rib Man – London Baby!

The rib man is quite a character – probably not the expected poster boy for the food industry, but now I’ve got that out of the way I can talk about his delicious ribs and heart of gold.
I went to visit him on one of his many pop-up sites at Petticoat Lane market. Continue Reading →

BRGR.CO, London

It’s burgers! And more dude food- dogs, slaw, pickles, you know the drill.
And this time we’re in Soho in a very well positioned corner slot which is cleverly picking up a lot of passing hungry customers. Open kitchen, clean décor, cow artwork on the walls Continue Reading →

Reform Social Bar & Grill

If there’s two things the Reform Social Bar and Grill at the Mandeville hotel in Mayfair are getting right, it’s their cocktails and steak.
A knock-your-head-off  Noho by Nights gin dessert cocktail, and a mean bit of melt in your mouth rib-eye cooked on their prized possession – a josper grill. Continue Reading →

MEATLiquor Brighton

‘Come hungry,leave drunk.’

That’s MEATLiquor’s strap line, and I’m not sure about most people but my experience was more like ‘Get the meat sweats after one bite and leave drunk and still sweating’. Add a headache to that too because the lights are so dim and the music’s so loud. It is like being inside a pinball machine. Continue Reading →

The Rum Kitchen, Soho

Spicy food, laid back Caribbean style décor, funky staff and rum rum rum! That’s what you will mainly be getting at The Rum Kitchen, as well as a hangover.

This place was ticking every box for me before I’d even seen inside. Rum is my old time friend, and I love my food spicy and fruity. Continue Reading →

Bunnychow

In a nutshell, The Bunny chow is a bread roll hollowed out and filled with some sort of tasty, juicy often curried filling. The ‘Bunny’ was invented in Durban, South Africa for the Indian workers to take a packed lunch who didn’t own cutlery or a lunchbox.  Continue Reading →
