Maze on Monday… Has there ever been such a brilliant trio of words? Well we didn’t think so and therefore I pestered Maze for one of their tables (& thank you team for being so accommodating!) for early supper this Monday evening. Why, you might ask? Because Maze on a Monday does a frankly fantabulous deal - 3 courses & a glass of champagne for £25. Bargainous, right? The...
Takeaways in Clapham
So I wrote about takeaways last year but as I seem to be having quite a few at the moment, I thought I’d take a moment to blog about the takeaways du jour in my household. I’m a big fan of hungryhouse as it lets me pick what I want, pay by card and then sit back and wait. It also has a handy review section which is extremely useful not to mention an iPhone app which means ordering on the bus on...
Starter - Mixed Platter @ Viet Grill Last night, I went to the mecca of Vietnamese restaurants, Kingsland Road. Despite having lived in London for nigh on two years now (and additionally, where on earth has the time gone?) I rarely venture east of Bank/St Paul’s unless I have good reason. However, with work colleagues around and an American amongst us, we decided to bravely go where...
The visually stunning Baked Alaska Last Monday was a revival of the Michelin-star supperclub that a trio of us at work have started up. The concept is rather simple: a michelin star restaurant every month, either for lunch or dinner. It’s a perfect Saturday afternoon filler but with summer holidays threatening and annual leave and diaries crammed, we had to look to a dinner and decided...
Wahaca (Covent Garden)
Wow, I got to this earlier than expected. Didn’t think I’d have time to sit and type till post-work tomorrow. However, since I’ve put my photos up on Flickr, let’s have a bit of blog time. I’ve been a busy bee this last few weeks and I recently re-tried Wahaca. I did have a bit of a bad time at this restaurant before (see here) and did have some lovely feedback from...
So I don’t know about you guys but for me, finding amazing cupcakes can sometimes be harder than finding the right coloured lipstick to go with your outfit. Or worse, finding an outfit to match that perfect pair of shoes that just doesn’t seem to go with anything. Luckily, us Londoners have an amazing new service that makes the queues at the Hummingbird bakery suddenly not look...
As many of us Londoners know, eating in Knightsbridge usually doesn’t guarantee a small bill. If anything, we eye up the card machine nervously as we pay for our meal and hope the words ‘card declined’ don’t pop up on the screen. However, my marvellous friend showed me a cheap little eatery on Tuesday which is literally opposite Harrods and, even better, with a bargainous...
So as I’m writing this, I’m craving chicken pad thai (£10.95) from Patara like a crazy person. I can get a little (okay, a lot) obsessive over food but Pad Thai is the one thing that gets my cravings going like nothing else. I’m not sure if it’s the attention to detail in the restaurant or the mixture of the flavours and the crunchiness of the peanuts but something in that...
So what is this? Simply: A blog. I’m a normal twenty-something girl working hard in our fair Capital and spending some of that hard-earned cash on one of the more important things in life… Food. I’m not a gastronomical genius or a connoisseur of great cuisine but I know what I like and generally, it’s the finer things in life. Stick around and find out more about what...
