Rosa’s Thai Cafe – 3 stars 

I don't know about you, but I don't eat Thai food enough. My childhood is full of fond memories of my family heading on down to the Manee Thai in Putney and feasting almost weekly on delicious Chicken Satay, Yum Salads, Sesame prawn toast etc... Now that I am grown up my Thai food repertoire... Continue Reading →

Nanban – A Japanese master in Brixton

It's rare that I make the short journey to Brixton these days due to no other reason than laziness. A long walk, a train and a tube makes it just too challenging to tempt me down. Every now and then though I hear of a new restaurant that just manages to intrigue me enough to lace up my boots and get walking.

WBLF’s Big Five London Burgers

WeBloodyLoveFood’s Big Five Burgers in London: Sod the Big Five in the game reserves of Africa, what people need to see (and more importantly eat) are the Big Five Burgers in London.

Reds True Barbeque: Take 2

I will start this review with a disclaimer of personal ignorance. I am not a pitmaster who understands all there is to know about barbeque. I am a guy that seriously loves eating it. I have eaten a fair bit of it over the years and between Tom and I we have a decent amount... Continue Reading →

Shackfuyu – A Japanese hotspot you should be visiting

For our first foray into the joint blogging world, Ben and I decided to push the boat out. We could have stuck with our comfort zone and visited one of the many burger or barbecue joints popping up all over London, but this was time for a special night therefore a special restaurant. So at 8:00pm we pushed open the door of Shackfuyu to begin our journey.

Brew Cafe – Northcote Road, Battersea

Brew is in a crowded market, but it's offerings make for a welcome change from the now mundane offerings of many other places. For those wanting a quick in and out meal, you are likely to be waiting a long time for a table as each location besides the one in Putney are in extremely small venues. However on the off chance you catch it on a quiet day, pop in, it's definitely worth it.

Stax Diner – Kingly Court Soho

⭐ ⭐ There is nothing wrong with the flavours they have tried to combine for each of their burgers, each one well thought out, but there needs to be much more finesse in what they do for this to truly be somewhere worth going.

Berners Tavern Review – Fitzrovia

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Berners tavern is billed as just one of these restaurants. Jason Atherton's venture is so popular reservations had to be made over two months in advance. It is no surprise that when the day arrived I could barely contain my excitement.

Chicken Liquor – Market Row, Brixton

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Chicken Liquor is a restaurant that London sorely needed and it has come along at just the right time. With the gourmet burger market becoming saturated people are crying out for the next big thing. Some have bet on pizza, such as the delicious Franco Manca, yet it is only now that people are starting to realise the potential of wings.

Hawksmoor – Seven Dials: The Best Steak in London?

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ I had prepared for a special evening, and as yet had not been disappointed. The rich wooden interiors transporting me back in time, glamorous yet understated. Downstairs the bar was something from the 1920s. Everything about Hawksmoor was screaming quality, the large thick hammered metal bar and the unique atmospheric lighting.

The Blues Kitchen – Shoreditch

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ The Blues Kitchen is unmissable. The large front of this imposing restaurant/bar with its Texas BBQ theme glows with dim exposed filament lightbulbs. Throngs of partygoers bustle outside with the gentle twinkling glow of cigarette lights between puffs of smoke.
