Get there before the Michelin star – Geist, Copenhagen 

I’m normally not that into fine dining. It has to do with me being very picky with my food and consequently not very experimental. But on our long-planned trip to Copenhagen I was surprised by my friend Pam wanting to eat the best of Danish food. Turned out there were lots of options, as Copenhagen…

Asia de Cuba, a bottomless bellini brunch

Another weekend, another bottomless brunch. I wasn’t sure what to make of the name except that Asia de Cuba sounded suitably exotic, which seemed appropriate for a brunch double date with our good friends Mr and Mrs P who love to travel. Your first challenge is finding the restaurant – also your first clue that…

Little Nan’s Afternoon Tea at Sutton House – Press Visit

As many of you know I’m a fan of afternoon tea, so when the Boozy Bunch was asked if we wanted to come and try Little Nan’s Afternoon Tea at Sutton House, I was throwing up my hand,  jumping up and down and shouting “Me! Me!” … as much as you can do that over email. I asked…

Tipsy Tea at Mr Fogg’s Residence

I seem to become the Boozy Bunch Afternoon Tea Auntie  … the BBATA? Maybe not a good acronym.  This time we went for one that is a little bit different from the usual ones you can get around London. Themed Afternoon Tea has become fashionable, but they are fairly expensive. As it was my birthday, I allowed…

A plethora of mail order subscriptions

Sometimes Christmas shopping can be hard! What should a person get for the love of their life? I mean, I’m usually pretty good at it, but last year I was really struggling for some supplemental gifts. Then the answer came to me: Cheese and meat! I mean, when we go to Spain, you can bet…

Lucky Chip Burgers and Wine: A wine lover’s paradise.

Hooray for birthdays! What better way to celebrate than with burgers? Well and with wine. I’ve been wanting to come to Lucky Chip Burgers and Wine since I had heard it had opened. Mostly because a) I do love burgers (although hadn’t been overly impressed with the Lucky Chip burgers in the past) and b)…

Colourful Afternoon Tea at Refuel, Soho Hotel

I recently had to explain the concept of Afternoon Tea to my Mum (who lives in Germany). The only thing that came to mind was that you drink tea and eat sweets from a multilayered cake stand. She was not convinced. To be honest it’s so much more. It’s the atmosphere of going into a…

Oriole – Adventurous cocktails near Smithfield Market

The other day I was wondering if I go out for cocktails too often? And then I had a good laugh: Bwahahahahah. Shortly after this I was on my way to this enticing Speak Easy Bar in Smithfield. I guess I’m telling you everything you need to know when I say it’s a spin-off from The Nightjar. They do…

Shotgun: Earning the American stamp of approval

I’ll come out and say it right now. Once, I had a BBQ on a balcony with one of those nasty foil things and burnt the tile. When we have barbies at home, my American brother-in-law is in charge.  Safe to say, I’m no expert at this charcoal roasted meat feast palaver. But I do…

Press Visit: Number 90 Bar and Kitchen’s 2nd Birthday Extravaganza

I was lucky enough to be invited to Number 90 Bar and Kitchen’s 2nd birthday party. It’s a day event spanning from March 17-March 20. I got to attend the first night festivities (and considering this post went out on March 18, it’s not really that surprising). A guest and I headed all the way to…

Pedler, Peckham – Is being twee and cute good enough for brunch?

Peckham slowly but surely is becoming the little Hipster brother to grown up Dulwich. In addition to Franks and Copeland Park we now have a hairdresser called Blue Tit, a new Vietnamese place that does bao buns and a few breakfast places that do more than just breaded chicken and baked beans. Meet Pedler: it’s located between Peckham…

Rules Restaurant – not just for tourists

You always hear about Rules. It’s the oldest restaurant in London, and it’s the place that the tourists always seem to want to go to. They film scenes for Downton Abbey there. But it’s not really one of those places that I ever really thought about going. I’m not sure why. But lately everyone I…
