Eating My Way Through London: Busaba, Stratford

We went to this place for a work lunch on my manager's suggestion. I liked what I had, my manager didn't. Make of that what you will! Personally I found the Pad Kwetio tasty but not very filling. I do have a big appetite though. My colleagues had a variety of dishes, all which looked… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Busaba, Stratford

Ribs to live and die for

I think I found the best ribs in London! If you wander away from the touristy section of the Tower Bridge/ Bermondsey area, you will come across The Kings Arms, which offered up a smashing half portion of ribs. Read my review here: https://www.weekendnotes.co.uk/the-kings-arms-bermondsey/

Afternoon Tea at the Kimpton Fitzroy

London and afternoon tea are two of my favourite things, but for some reason, I had never got around to trying afternoon tea in London. My Dutch friend had always expressed an interest in having afternoon tea in England, so with this in mind, I planned a trip.There was quite a bit of competition but… Continue reading Afternoon Tea at the Kimpton Fitzroy

For this reason I found myself drawn to vegan fare- I often say that I prefer vegan burgers to meat ones. I recently visited StrEATfeast at Alexander Palace, where there was a wide… Continue reading Last Night A Vegan Saved My Life

Eating My Way Through London: Casse- Croute

After my flirtations with Greece and Persia, it seems like I'm turning back to French cuisine. Visiting Casse- Croute makes you feel like you're dining in a French village. It may not be the cheapest, but it's not ridiculously overpriced either. Casse- Croute, simply put, is fab. Situated in the thriving area of Bermondsey, it… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Casse- Croute

A little bit of Scoff & Banter

I haven't posted on here for a bit because I've been at Green Man festival in Crickhowell. This is a lovely festival with such a chilled vibe. I had a great few days with friends, listening to music and relaxing in the sunshine (and sheltering from the rain!) On a completely unrelated note, a little… Continue reading A little bit of Scoff & Banter

Eating My Way Through London: Bellanger

Bellanger has the feel of a neighbourhood place, rather than a trendy London eaterie. That might be due to its location in the twinkly, cosy section of Upper Street in Islington. Apparently Bellanger is ‘inspired by the Alsatian brasseries of Paris’. If you're not down with Alsatian dining, then expect to be a little more… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Bellanger
