Review: An Ecuadorian feast at El Inca Pleyebo

I’ve always been intrigued by South America – its beauty, its culture, but most importantly, its enticing cuisine.
Having watched a fair few Rick Stein food programmes, I learned that a big part of Ecuadorian culture is their food, passed down for generations. I’ve never had any South American food other than the odd Mexican so was intrigued and excited to try more. Read more…

Review: Balls Brothers Adams Court

Balls Brothers

The moment 5.30 on a Friday afternoon hits, I’m ready to get the weekend started. I’m constantly in search of new places which can tick all my boxes: great drinks, great music, great atmosphere and, above all, great food. Balls Brothers in the city seemed to look good on paper, so, laptops shut down, off we went to try it out. Read more…

Bokan, Canary Wharf: So much more than a view

As the concept of a hidden gem becomes ever rarer, there’s a burst of excitement that comes when you find one that isn’t already taking up column inches in the capital. For, as I’ve written before, nothing is more wearisome than a trip out for dinner with the prospect of a 2-hour queue, a table for 60 minutes, for what often turns out to be an underwhelming plate, or plates, of food.

Supreme means Heinz: Beck at Brown’s

Dressed crab - Beck at Brown's

The dining room
Heinz Beck’s new restaurant, Beck at Brown’s, has been highly anticipated.

I too had my own story. Read more…
