For The Love Of Spritz

I’ve become completely obsessed in the last 12 months with an Italian aperitif called “Spritz”. Those who follow this blog know I’ve had 3 trips to Italy in the last 12 months alone, and have fallen in love with the food and drinking culture. Prosecco lovers like myself you will be sure to love Spritz,…

London Coffee Festival

I’m hyper and somewhat shaky, the result of an afternoon spent savouring everything the London Coffee Festival 2016 has to offer. The event, held at The Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, is held across two levels, with coffee centric stalls in abundance. The lines of people waiting to enter the afternoon session were somewhat daunting, but…

Aldwych: London’s Forgotten Tube Station

London is a city of history and secrets, and I used to walk past one of those secrets every day. Just off The Strand is the unassuming Aldwych station, closed to visitors except for a lucky few. This “abandoned” tube station is actually in heavy use for filming, but on a few dates a year…

Exotic Brunch At Berber And Q

Berber And Q is a name you will have seen in the (endless) lists of best new openings in 2015, and with good reason, this East London arrival takes Middle Eastern cuisine a long way away from the late night Kebab stop. Set in the arches of a railway bridge this Middle Eastern fusion restaurant…

Joe’s Southern Kitchen, Covent Garden

Located in the heart of Covent Garden Joe’s Southern Kitchen & Bar, American style eatery, caters to the tourist scene with gimmicky dishes and kids size options. Despite being located in tourist grand central, and being yet another American style eatery, the food here is of a fairly decent quality with a few genuine Deep…

Once Upon A Wigwam

There’s only two more nights of festive frivolity before the hangover kicks in and the January blues hits. For a final Christmas fling head to my favourite winter spot, the Queen of Hoxton, where the infamous rooftop wigwam is full of fairytale surprises and Yuletide beverages.

Pop Down: Grub Club, Waterloo Vaults

On a cool autumn evening we drive through London’s Lower Marsh to a mysterious venue. It was a surprise anniversary date and I had no idea where we might be going. I was somewhat sceptical as we make our way down a seedy graffiti covered tunnel but pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the notorious…
