Ode to Bone Daddies

Last Thursday, after a morning of pretty useless meetings, I was feeling a little blue, and I needed  a good cheer up. When I am in a bad mood, my three antidotes are either a long chat with my best friend, a Bikram yoga class, or a little foodie adventure….


Legal beef high in Central London

Last October, after their successful summer pop-up, the Burger Breakout team decided to go permanent, and take over the kitchen of The Old Crown pub in Holborn.  Since then, it has been on my list, and last Saturday I finally had the chance to check it out. It was A’s birthday, and she…


Indian street-food pit stop

Last week, after a pretty intense Bikram yoga class, I needed a quick late-lunch pit stop, and Mooli’s was just a stone’s throw away, in Frith street. This tiny shop sells tasty Indian street food, sort of burrito-wraps made with Roti, Indian flatbread, filled with very appetising and healthy ingredients….


Third time lucky at Bubbledogs

Third time lucky. After giving up twice for the overwhelming queue all the way down Charlotte Street last fall, I learnt my lesson, and ventured to Bubbledogs for a late lunch, as opposed to my previous Friday night attempts. So here we are, Miss S and I, on a mid-week freezing…


A tasty excuse for Brunch at Caravan King’s Cross

I love my breakfast, the aroma of freshly made coffee, rich Greek yogurt with raspberry and crunchy granola, crispy piping hot almond croissants, and the papers, of course. But I love brunch even more. It’s a perfectly acceptable excuse to dress up on a Sunday morning, have a second breakfast,…


A bespoke cocktail with a view at Duck and Waffle

My friend M is back from NYC. In fact quite a few of my friends are moving back to London, which is great! Is London the new NYC? Certainly the dining scene is booming compared to just a couple of years ago, and London is ranking high among the foodie…


Naamyaa Cafe’ review and other life ramblings

It’s January. It’s cold. It gets dark early. It’s that time of the year again, for a little detox and the usual healthy living attempts. I have been back in London since NYE, but given my new healthy eating resolution, I put my explorative blog activities on hold for a…


Bye Bye Kulu Kulu sushi, hello Sushi Hiroba!

Last Tuesday, after a pretty hectic morning working from home, I headed to Chancery Lane for an afternoon meeting with my PR agency. I left home at lunchtime, planning to grab some sushi on the go. When I got off the #38 bus in Holborn however, it occurred to me…


Disappointing tapas in Hoxton

On Monday last week, both my friend C from Stockholm and P from Munich were in town for meetings. Last time we managed to be together in the same city was a couple of summers ago, in New York. They used to be fellow East Londoners, so we decided to…


A new Bombay Cafe’ in London: Dishoom Shoreditch

Being a huge fan of Dishoom Covent Garden, I couldn’t wait to try out their new Shoreditch restaurant, currently in soft opening (and with a 50% discount on food until 18th October). I finally managed to visit it on Saturday night. And I love it! Tucked away in Boundary street,…
