Who can say no to dumplings @ Beijing Dumpling?

I have been feeling extremely under the weather lately. Something to do with a cold mating with asthma and turning me into one gigantic not-so-hot-mess. Alas, even I get bored of having congee, chicken soup and poached chicken, so I asked Grant to accompany me to fulfill some dumpling cravings. To be honest, neither of us…

Kerb Camden

Since living in London, I’ve become a huge fan of the street food available around the city. In fact, many of my favorite places to grab food originated as a street food vendor, such as Bleecker Street Burger and Homeslice Pizza. So I was extremely pleased when Kerb announced they were opening a permanent location…

Bone Daddies: Old Street 

It is well established that the boozy bunch are fans of Bone Daddies, after all they were crowned the winners of Ramen Wars earlier this year! However when each branch carries a different menu it’s not enough to like the chain, you can also have a favourite branch. And old street is mine. Perhaps surprisingly…

Artful cafe with mega amazing cake – Moffee Kaffeebar, Copenhagen

Food:★★★★★  Service:★★★★★  Ambiance:★★★★★   Overall: ★★★★★ Price:£ I know I bore everyone with my boring cake reviews and so I will make this short and sweet. While spending a leisurely weekend in Copenhagen my friend an I really took to this amazing café on the fringes of the city centre. Based between a busy dual carriageway called Gyldenløvesgade and a small side…

Tickets Bar, Barcelona

The first time I went to Tickets Bar was in May 2014 when I was visiting my friend Andy in Barcelona. He suggested a nice place, but not too expensive, and brought up going to Tickets Bar. Well I booked it immediately. We had an amazing time, so when some friends suggested a weekend away…

The Weekly Munch, 5-11 Nov 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: What does a weekend in Barcelona bring? The best tapas of your life! I (and several friends) had a boozy holiday weekend in Barcelona, so we had to hit up Tickets Bar for an eventful and drunken meal….

Cotenna: A New York gem!

About 2 months ago, Andrew and I went on a spur of the moment trip to New York – well, it really was a work trip for him, but a proper trip gorge-and-stuff-myself-silly trip for me!  I had only booked my ticket 2 days before heading off, so I didn’t get a chance to do…

Standard English food – The Ivy Café, Fitzrovia

Food: ★★★☆☆  Service: ★★★★☆  Ambiance:★★★★☆   Overall: ★★★☆☆ Price:£££ So … unexpectedly work managed to take us out for a meal. They are normally not that giving, so I was rather excited. As most of the Italian staff is staying in Marylebone during their visit to the London office, they choose to go to The Ivy Café….

Martin Wishart, Cameron House, Loch Lomond

Emma and I finished our week’s dining on our mini honeymoon in Scotland on a real high. After spending most of the week at the wonderful cozy, romantic Ecopod in Appin on the west coast, I treated Emma to a bit of luxury on the last night. We stayed at the very impressive Cameron House on the banks of…

Cactus Kitchens Part Deux: Michel Roux Jr.

A year and a half ago I was lucky enough to be given an amazing gift to take a cooking course with Monica Galetti. (I also have written about that experience too, where I gutted my first squid, learned to make rice puree and cooked with salsify for the first time.)  My husband and I…

Clutch, a cluckin’ good brunch

Yep I know, the London fried chicken boom is so 2014-and-late, but new openings still seem to be cropping up all over town. Not many of them seem to open in the mornings however (and I mean brunchtime in the morning, not the wee early hours) so I thought I’d share the tale of a recent tasty brunch at Clutch Chicken. It was…

The Weekly Munch, 28 Oct-4 Nov 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Yee Gan: Emma took me out for my birthday. We went to The Noah’s Ark Inn in Lugarshall, West Sussex. Despite its name, they didn’t serve anything too exotic animal-wise! They lived up to their Michelin recommended status with really light…
