Review: Aquum Festive Bottomless Brunch

It’s not surprise that the Boozy Bunch has a thing or two for a boozy brunch, so when an opportunity came up (courtesy of Kapranos PR) to test out the Festive Bottomless Brunch at Aquum in Clapham there was no hesitation on my part. Becky and I headed down one sunny Saturday to Aquum to…

Burger Time: Flaming Cow Ealing

Now that Becky is back in town, we’ve started exploring our local area and testing out the restaurant scene. Our latest foray was to the Flaming Cow, the sister restaurant to one in Eton, it claims that “you’ve not had real burgers until you’ve had a Flaming Cow experience”. Well damn, I thought I knew…

It’s Pie Time for the Guinea Grill

Ever since my go-to pie place closed down, I’ve been looking for a new source of my favourite winter comfort food. So when an old high school friend was in town for the first time it seemed like a perfect opportunity to try out a new spot. The Guinea claims to have won a number…

Meaty Madness at Macellaio RC South Kensington

Marcellaio RC It had been a long time since I’d seen my friend Rob, and luckily he was in town so we did what we always do and picked a place to gorge ourselves silly. This time, we selected Macellaio RC which I’m told means “the butcher” in Italian. It’s definitely an apt name as…

First eats with EatFirst

For once the stars aligned and I managed to escape work in time to take up Angelica “Jelly” Malin’s invite to the EatFirst x About Time supper club. Although it’s taken me a month to write it up (sorry!), the evening was most excellent both in terms of the food & wine and also the…

MASH – An American Steakhouse with a Danish twist

MASH stands for Modern American Steak House – yet despite that it has Danish roots so I was thoroughly confused about what to expect. However, a 50% off all steaks (except Wagyu) summer special was too good to resist and I rallied a crew to head down for a bit of a meat feast. I…

B&H Kitchen: Stuffing a Sausage (or two)

Sausages! Who doesn’t feel a little excited when hearing that? Well probably quite a few people but needless to say I was pretty excited when Grant (@boozybunchgrant) invited me to take advantage of a Nudge member offer for a 50% off class at Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings. I’d been there to try out the boozy…

Bibo: Proper Italian in Putney

Bibo has been on my hitlist for ages since almost every blogger I know raves about it. It’s rare a place lives up to the hype, but Bibo not only met but exceeded expectations with its delicious flavours and near perfect execution. Bibo is an Italian place located around the corner from Putney train station and…

Chick’n’Sours: KFC hits Dalston in a big way

Fried Chicken! It’s the next big thing! Or rather it’s been a thing but I’ve only finally got around to eating it but that doesn’t quite make a sound bite! Anyways, regardless of why, the important thing is I finally made it up to try Chick’n’Sours. Tucked away on Kingsland road just north of Haggerston…

Black Penny Brunch (and a 1p whisky shot)

The Black Penny came to my attention when they advertised a January offer – buy a coffee and get a shot of Speyside single malt for just 1p! How can you turn down an offer like that? Alas, with most things, it turns out a bit too good to be true – yes, you can…

Boozy Brunch: Aubaine Broadgate

It was time to get the Boozy Bunch back together for what we do best – put the claim of a Bottomless Brunch to the test. And this time we were coming en masse with a massive group of 16 joining in for the fun. We had originally planned to go cheap and cheerful with…

Ramen Wars: Ittenbari Soho

It’s Ramen Wars! The next contender is Ittenbari Soho, a small and spartan Ramen house just off Piccadilly Circus. Ittenbari was actually one of the first ramen joints I tried in London (back in the good ol’ days of Ramen Club organised by the effervescent Josy) and I remember it fondly. So, naturally, I needed…
