For Science!

If there’s one thing the Boozy Bunch love beyond brunch, it’s afternoon tea. And what better combination of both than boozy afternoon tea? As former Boozy Buncher Grant is a scientist, he suggested we try out the Science Afternoon Tea at The Ampersand Hotel in Kensington. Since they were doing a special that month, including…

New Openings! The Cheese Bar

Unless you were living under a rock this week, you’ll have seen all the social media fever around London’s soon to be opened Cheese Bar. We’re Europeans, we get excited about cheese, ok? The Cheese Bar is the new baby of former street food trader, The Cheese Truck, which specialised in grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ve always loved…

Abel and Cole: 21st Century Vegetable Man

When I was a child in Ireland we used to have a man who drove round the houses in his big black BMW selling vegetables out of the trunk. Don’t get me wrong, it was as weird as it sounds. For some reason my mum felt sorry for him and always bought potatoes and they always…

In Parma

The Italians are famous for liking their food simple but great. If you go for pizza with an Italian, they probably won’t order a pie heaped with toppings but rather go for something plainer so they can fully experience the flavour. We experienced this recently at one of London’s most authentic Italian restaurants, In Parma….

Fatburger: the classy 3am of burgers

Last night a few members of the blog experienced one of the most disappointing and expensive meals of our friendship. So disappointing, in fact, that I announced midway through ‘let’s leave, I want chicken’. But we didn’t, we stayed and finished the meal and then headed out into the night in search of better. Well,…

Book Club goes Dutch

Did you know that the Boozy Bunch are not just reviewers but readers too? That’s right, folks, we’re the perfect date: smart, sexy and usually full of alcohol. For this month’s book club, we were reading ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ by Margaret Atwood. A rollicking good read if you’re into a dystopian world of female subjugation and forced…

A room of one’s own at Vivat Bacchus

This week we were invited by the lovely people at Vivat Bacchus to their Farringdon location for dinner. I had heard of Vivat Bacchus, of course,  its South African origin and fame for cheese and wine preceding it. If you’ve read my posts before, you’ll know that I am the cheese and wine queen of the…

The 3 Bs of success: Booze, Brunch and Buffet

What’s better than All You Can Drink? All You Can Drink AND Eat. The Boozy Bunchers have become pretty spoiled with some great brunch options in London and are now keen for more than just a couple of hours of unlimited boozing, now we want unlimited food as well. So for Vicky’s birthday, we decided on…

A Radical Approach

Is there anything worse than a favourite place changing their menu and just becoming a shadow of its former self? Yes probably, famine, pestilence, war, all that stuff. Radicals and Victuallers, an Upper Street ‘gastropub’ has been a frequent stop for me since it opened. Mainly because you can almost always get a seat and…

Found: the best burger in London. 

Now the burger wars have been raging in London for as long as hipsters have been wearing their granddads’ cardigans and buying moustache wax without a trace of embarassment. Lofty claims to have created the best burger have been made by many and countless articles listing the new and current favourites. Burgers have become more…

Ceviche

Dieting can be exciting, can’t it? The rush of seeing all those salads on display, the thrill of counting up your calories for the day and seeing if maybe, just maybe, you can squeeze in an extra slice of lean chicken breast with dinner. No, it’s awful and horrible and I want a cheeseburger. The…

Shame about the Shake

Unless you’ve been living under a bush the last few months, you’ll have keenly watched the Freakshake phenomenon sweep London with a hungry eye. Looking like something Hunter S Thompson would’ve dreamed up if he’d spent a week at a WeightWatchers camp, it’s an ice cream milkshake orgy stuffed with half a cake, some cookies…
