Casse-Croûte

I suppose if the bare minimum skills of a food blogger is that they are able to tell you exactly what they ate and how much it cost then I have failed in this post before I have even begun. The truth of the matter is that I simply have no idea. I don’t know…

Bellanger 2.0

I was so sad when Bellanger closed. I may have even cried. The crying jig might have coincided with being dumped so it’s possible I was being overly dramatic, but still, I was very sad regardless. A while ago I wrote about Bellanger and my love for their super-food salad, link here –  Déjà Food…

Mac & Wild

A few years ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Andy Waugh, co-owner of Mac & Wild. He was entertaining, informative and endearing in equal measure. You can read that interview HERE. I have always enjoyed Mac & Wild, famed for their delicious and perfectly cooked cuts of meat and their dedication to providing and…

Le Mercury

There really is nothing like a cheeky little pay day lunch on a Friday; and that is exactly what I enjoyed last week. Le Mercury is a cosy French restaurant on Upper Street. The decor is charming and rustic but also has a traditional French fine dining feel to it, white tablecloths and all. The walls…

Beauty & Essex

I went to the most divine restaurant when I was in New York a few months ago, I feel almost ashamed that I haven’t written about it already. Alas, sometimes life gets in the way, so I’m bringing to you now. Sorry! (not that sorry). I wanted somewhere special to go for our last night…

Hartbreakers – Brooklyn

When I was in New York I met up with an old school friend (to clarify, by ‘old’ I mean I’ve known her a long time, she’s not old, that would make me old, and i’m not old, i’m in my prime. Baby… ok, rant over). She’s vegan, so we went to check out a new vegan…

Unwrapped: Help Refugees presents – Majeda’s Choose Love Kitchen

Last week I went to very special supper club. Second Home, recently opened near London Fields, hosted Majeda and her ‘Choose Love’ kitchen; cooking a delicious three-course meal in collaboration with the charity Help Refugees. It’s a unique opportunity to enjoy some beautifully cooked Syrian specialties, and support a worthy cause in the process. Majeda Khoury had…

Bistrotheque

This month I turned the grand age of thirty-four. Naturally I celebrated in style (by eating everything in sight) with a most delightful brunch at Bistrotheque. The entrance is rather incongruous, up a flight of stairs that you would never find if your weren’t looking for it. Once inside though, it is impossible not to…

Between the Sheets at Balcone

I think most people, whether in a relationship or single can agree, that Valentines day sucks. The pressure, stiff awkward dinners. The cheesy roses and chocolate (actually I’ll take the chocolate), the time my ex spent the evening being generally, a bit of a dick, and then offered an almost romantic musical dedication to his…

Eisenberg’s Sandwich Shop – New York

I was just recently in New York, and there was one thing while there I intended to take particularly seriously; the hunt for the perfect Reuben sandwich. Now, i’m already sold on the American’s ability to make a great sandwich, last time I was there I made the almost religious pilgrimage to Katz’s Deli and…

Angara Grill – Walthamstow

Angara grill is a Turkish grill/ fast food joint in Walthamstow. The interiors are nothing to write about as one would expect. The usual fast food look, with plastic chairs and tables and a curved glass counter showing off the food on offer. The food is pretty delicious. The hummous pretty to look at and…
