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…

Boozy Bunch Vs. Food: At Zelman Meats, Food won.

I’ve been wanting to try Zelman since they’ve opened. You see, when I was a wee girl, my friends ran a club night called The Meat Raffle at Catch and the fact that Zelman apparently offered meat raffles (and chateaubriand by the 100g) was more than enough to turn me on and pull me in. Turns out it…

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…

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…

Yes, I want THAT steak – Loui and Jules Grillboutique, Bremen

Food:★★★☆☆  Service:★★★☆☆  Ambiance:★★★★☆    Overall:★★★☆☆ Price:££ I recently went to Bremen (Germany) to visit my family. I hadn’t seen my little nephew since November last year. This time the weather was sweltering and I was hoping for something fresh and light … maybe a vietnamese summer roll? But my brother is a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore so he took us to a…

The Branston BBQ at the London BBQ School

The Boozy Bunch was invited to a Branston Pickle BBQ by  Micaela from stylishlondonliving.co.uk in co-operation with The London BBQ School in Peckham. As I live in the area I could not resist the temptation to check this out. The London BBQ School has been established a few years back and sadly had to move out…

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…

Two words: Lobster Butter

After two weeks in Asia, I was desperate for some good pub food. I know some of you will think I’m mad, after all British food has such a bad reputation, right? Wrong! You’ve been listening to far too many Americans and we all know where that leads! My very own American had been recommended…

Flat Iron: ‘Damn, I missed my free ice cream’

Flat Iron was part of London’s first wave of ‘restaurants that served you one thing’. The original on Beak street had long queues outside for ages (because who can say ‘no’ to a £10 steak) but I heard that the new branch on Henrietta Street was much bigger (ergo less queue?!?!?) so I popped over for a…

A fat lunch at The Fat Bear

This Southern American spot has taken up residency down a small City backstreet, well tucked away above a pub called The Rising Sun. There’s little to give it away from the outside when walking past, so congratulate yourself on being in the know when you get there! I’m sure those members of the Boozy Bunch…

Saving a supermarket steak: an unconventional leap of faith

I get that not everyone is as scatterbrain as I am and most of you won’t end up at the butchers without a wallet. But, when you have to satisfy a steak craving, a supermarket steak would have to do (thanks, Apple Pay, both for making me forget the wallet and saving the day). But…
