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….

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…

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…

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…

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…

Itadaki Zen, Europe’s first vegan Japanese

I’m an omnivore that quite likes going to vegetarian-specific places, as despite drawing from a more constrained set of ingredients, they often produce more creative and interesting dishes as a result. Well, either that or you get a bunch of average dishes with rubbery tofu on everything. When I heard that London had a place…

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…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Becky: My cousin and I took a small road trip down to Seattle, and while we were in for a bit of sight seeing, we were really excited to arrive in time for happy hour – mainly because happy hour is…

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…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: For the bank holiday weekend, my husband and I checked out the Foodies Festival at Alexandra Palace. There were a lot of food and alcohol stalls, either to eat and drink there or for taking home. I ended…

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Grant: It was Vicky’s birthday and what’s the best way to celebrate? Brunch! This time we tried out Kurobuta’s unlimited brunch. It’s a bit strange as it’s mostly a buffet at the bar with a make-your-own Ramen station, and…

The Weekly Munch, 13-19 Aug 2016

Here’s our weekly diary of what the Bunch have been eating and drinking this week… Saturday Linzi: Do you ever go out for dinner and think, ‘ooh I’ll go for something healthy’ and then end up with a plate of butter? Maybe that’s just me, I call it ‘menu panic’. We were visiting my hometown of…
