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…

The Weekly Munch, 22-28 Oct 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Jules: Saturday …what a glorious day it was. Too good to sit at home working on my DIY project. I have the whole winter for that. So I decided to visist the famous Nunhead Cemetary, one of the old…

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…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Yee Gan: On a shopping trip to Central London, Emma and I tried out Duende for lunch.

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: My parents are in town, and as my mother is an avid reader of the blog, there were a couple of places that she had picked out that she wanted to try. One of them was one of…

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,…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Linzi: My father asked if we wanted to have dinner at The Spruce Goose, I said ‘Howard Hughes’ turkey of an airplane?’ Turns out he meant the Strasbourg Goose, less exciting but probably safer. I wasn’t too impressed when we showed…

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…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: It was a Cambridge wedding weekend for us, so we managed to get a last minute booking to Midsummer House, Cambridge’s only two-Michelin star restaurant. It was a lunch booking, but it was a lovely meal, with some…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Sanj: Curiosity got the best of me for my fiancé’s birthday lunch and I took him to Europe’s very first vegan and organic Japanese place, Itadaki Zen. I was pleasantly surprised by the food which was fresh, colourful and…

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…
