The Marksman

Mother Fat was in town for a visit and I had to choose what sort of local meal to bring her to. Fish and Chips? “Eughh!”, Mrs. Fat would say. Afternoon tea? Too posh and silly IMHO. Then it struck me. Something that is truly British, and that people abroad (most of people at least),… Continue reading

Bao London

Well, well, well! It looks like I finally found my favourite London restaurant after only 4 months of searching. I’m so glad to have come across Bao! To tell you all the truth this is actually the 3rd visit. The first 2 were fantastic but dinner time and it was dark and the photos came… Continue reading

Ceviche

Boring. No need to read, go on to text post which I’m sure will be more tasting. I looove Peruvian food. Its probably one of my top 3 cuisines out there but it is always so hard to find a true restaurant. To me Peruvian food can be described as homey but with technique and… Continue reading

Smoking Goat

Spicy alert!!! Smoking Goat’s food was smoking hot! Pun intended. If you don’t like spicy food, then this thai restaurant in Soho is not for you, or any thai restaurant for what matters.  But if you like spicy food, the good kind, prepare to be amused. You know how every Monday is usually that sad… Continue reading

Burger and Lobster

Burger and LOBSTER. Who doesn’t like lobster? Lobster is sometimes seen as the king of seafood although out there there’s more and better than lobster. But people love lobster, and who am I to disagree? And who doesn’t like a juicy burger? It seems like the perfect formula. Or is it? Venue – 7/10 Website… Continue reading

Kanada-Ya Ramen Bar

Kanada-Ya Ramen Bar was the first ramen we ate in London. We love ramen. Having lived and travelled extensively through Asia, this also means that we are very picky and have high standards when it comes to eating ramen. Although Kanada-Ya is not the best ramen I’ve ever had, that honor goes to Hong Kong’s Butao Ramen,… Continue reading

Carob Tree

One of my colleagues used to live in Camden and recommended me his favourite London restaurant of all time, Carob Tree, a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant that is located right next to one of Hampstead Heath’s exits. We had a pleasant early lunch there after some walking/sightseeing in the neighbouring area. Venue – 6/10 No Website Cuisine: Greek… Continue reading
