Dining with a view at OXO Tower

When Mum was over a few weeks ago, I made a last minute reservation for the OXO Brasserie via their online booking system. I had been to this Harvey Nichols owned restaurant a few years back, and loved the impressive view over the river Thames and St Paul’s Cathedral. So,…

MEAT Liquor, delicious burgers!

A few days ago I was literally dragged to MEAT Liquor by a group of friends; it was the 5 of us. I had managed to avoid this restaurant and cocktail bar until then, because I thought it was way too tempting for my healthy or semi-healthy food resolution! Until…

Dim Sum challenge: Pearl Liang (London) vs Tim’s Kitchen (Macau)

I love Dim Sum! I could probably eat them every day! When I am in London I tend to eat them at the same restaurants (Pearl Liang, Royal China and Yauatcha). Since I was lucky enough to be in Asia for a few weeks, I was excited to see if…

Nosing around East London: Crate Brewery in Hackney

A couple of weeks ago, Mum called to communicate her spontaneous decision to spend the weekend in London, and two days after… here she was! When I have guests over I normally plan activities and dinners in detail, but this time, because of this short notice, and to tell you…

Shimogamo: authentic Japanese cuisine in London

I’m sure many are enjoying this fantastic London weather! Summer is finally here! (and so are the Olympic games and the Olympic lanes unfortunately, but that’s a different story altogether). To celebrate the good weather and to reward the hard work of the past weeks at our new jobs, last…
