Review: Searcys at the Gherkin

Searcys the Gherkin bar

You’d forgive Searcys at the Gherkin for taking things for granted. With a view like this, you wouldn’t blame them for not focusing on the food. But thankfully they haven’t rested on their laurels, and have managed to produce a menu that is every bit as interesting as the setting. And with one of the best views in London, that is no mean feat. Read more…

Review: Fresh Organic Pizzas at Radio Alice

Pizza is one of the world’s most popular foods, and rightly so. I always find that there is something impressive about this delicious staple – you can be as adventurous with the toppings as you like and it never fails to impress.
Pizza started with 3 basic ingredients – a crispy thin base, layers of a rich tomato sauce and melted mozzarella on top. Read more…

Feast on London: A Fiery Feast at Bonfire

In the midst of the month-long Feast on London extravaganza, this intrepid blogger was tasked with trying out the fare at Bonfire, a plethora of classic American staples situated on the first floor of the Barbican centre. With a well stocked bar, and a wonderful terrace overlooking the harsh beauty of the Barbican estate, I was looking forward to sampling the delights on offer. Read more…

Review: Feast on London at Tonic & Remedy

Jamming & Chartreuse Sour Cocktails

As soon as we entered Tonic & Remedy I could tell we were in for a fun yet sophisticated evening. Trendy types were hanging in the rather lavish bar area; a group were taking a cocktail masterclass, and people were genuinely having a good time with the bar team. We were led upstairs past the floor-to-ceiling windows with striking views of the city to the open plan dining area. Read more…

Review: Gluten-free Italian Dishes at Leggero

As a Londoner, I am really spoilt for choice when it comes to food. A quick search online shows the amount of restaurants choices there are. Because London is a melting pot, I have been lucky to try so many different cuisines over the years from Sri-Lankan, to Senegalese, via Ethiopian and Burmese.
Leggero is however, something I haven’t tried before – a gluten-free Italian restaurant. Read more…

Review: Dreamy Sashimi at Sanjugo

Spicy Chicken Bao

Since moving to London many years ago I have become slightly obsessed with sushi. The bite-sized portions, the sharing, the freshly sliced fish, the tempura, just everything makes me happy. The smaller places I find are always the best. More personal and authentic, you can’t beat it. I met a friend in Old Street and we headed over to the newly opened Sanjugo for some mid-week grazing.

Review: Hotdesking at Greenport Kitchen

I’m always a fan of a new restaurant with a new idea to fill the restaurant at lunchtime. Hopping on the back of the recent hotdesking trend, Greenport Kitchen is offering unlimited WiFi, croissants and coffee for £5.50 per hour. I decided to go down and see how I would fair working away from my own desk for a few hours. Read more…
