Bob Bob Ricard, Soho

In late 2021, Claire and I visited Bob Bob Ricard in Soho for an evening meal. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door and taken to our table. We left it a little late to book, so were unable to get a regular table in a booth, however, we managed to get a bar… Continue reading Bob Bob Ricard, Soho

Eating my way though London: Nibbles at Drake and Morgan

I visited Drake and Morgan with a friend back in the summer. We were looking for a place to have a catch-up after Covid and felt a bit lost amongst the choice in Kings Cross.

Zzang, Korean restaurant

Zzang is a cute and cosy Korean spot situated in London's Swiss Cottage area. It was ideal to grab a bite to eat on a rainy afternoon. My friend Jo and I hadn't eaten much Korean food beforehand, but this was a good intro. The food was fresh, tasty and comforting. We had the Udon… Continue reading Zzang, Korean restaurant

Carrot Cake at Signorelli Bakery

Darlings, if you want deliciously moist cake, then Signorelli bakery is the place to get it. There is so much choice when you step inside. And their coffees and sandwiches aren't bad either. This carrot cake was sublime. Signorelli Bakery, Stratford, East London

Pasta at Vapiano

I was looking through old pictures on my phone and came across some photos of my visit to Vapiano last year. I'm not obsessed with pasta (okay, I am), but pasta is great to photograph. Is that just me? Anyway, Vapiano is a canteen- style Italian restaurant that caters to the 'swipe and go' generation.… Continue reading Pasta at Vapiano

Eating My Way Through London: Figo, Stratford

This pizza from Figo in Stratford deserves a lot of love. I tried it way back before lockdown 1, so it was a bit of time ago, but it's stuck in my memory since. Figo is a great little Italian place in East London, with a vibrant atmosphere. The pizza was excellent, so flavoursome and… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Figo, Stratford

Sushi-making and Sake*

Happy October! The trees are changing colour and there's a definite chill in the air. I love Autumn- it makes me want to stack up on carbs and chai. I've also been thinking back to a sushi-making class I went to in London this time last year. I've been a bit lax in adding this… Continue reading Sushi-making and Sake*
