Arepa & Co

We all know London is filled with the latest food trends, so we were first in line (almost literally – we went to the soft launch), to try out the new branch of Venezuelan restaurant Arepa & Co. Arepa & Co was started by a husband and wife duo who wanted to create a “home … Continued

Restaurant Review:
El Pastór

We’re sticklers for eating at Borough Market (and talking about it a lot) and it’s somewhere we visit even more now with the addition of El Pastór in the railway arches. Granted, this was an arrival about 12 months ago, but we’ve been on many occasion now and it’s always glorious.   For those who … Continued

Restaurant Review:
Nest

Just before Christmas we visited Hackney’s newest restaurant Nest, and it was every bit as good as we had hoped. Nest is a humble team of three, cooking up a storm is Johnnie, former chef from the Michelin-starred Harwood Arms and Farringdon restaurant Anglo. Friendly-faces Luke and Toby run front of house.   After visiting … Continued

mince pies

All the Mince Pies:
Taste Test

So we may have been eating mince pies since October. Ridiculous, yes, but it does means we’ve had a lot of time to do the rounds and sample a lot of pies in London Bridge. We’ve gone mainstream, as well as local (we say local; we mean Borough Market which we can smugly say is … Continued

Millie’s Lounge
at The Ned

Sundays are all about recuperating from the night before, or having a massive roast dinner, or both. So when we heard that Millie’s Lounge at The Ned offers a Sunday Feast, we were all ears. The Ned opened in May this year, and the hype and excitement surrounding this Soho House refurb was immense. Not … Continued

Get your
express lunch on

Recently we harped on about sitting at our desks too much and going al-desko almost every day. We hope we’re preaching to the converted… however if we’re not, this little treat might entice you.   via GIPHY   We’ve just found out new London dining hot-spot, The Lampery, has started an express lunch menu. Which means … Continued

London fondue

Fondue in your face

The clocks have gone back and the winter coats have been salvaged from the back of our wardrobes. We might have already treated ourselves to some M&S mince pies (read: most definitely have and we still don’t care that was done mid-October). So it’s winter, and winter this year seems to mean fondue. Good job … Continued

ace hotel

Ace Hotel:
What’s not to love?

After the success of eight hotels across America, Ace Hotel Shoreditch opened its doors in 2013. The chain prides itself on converting old buildings into design-led and “unfussy luxury” accommodation. The brand takes inspiration from the surrounding area and invests heavily in the culture and community. Universal Design Studios were the creative brains behind Ace … Continued

Santo Remedio

It’s all about the tacos! With the likes of Breddos and El Pastor, we were delighted to hear that Santo Remedio reopened its doors in Bermondsey (after swiftly closing in Shoreditch). The seemingly cosy restaurant is actually spread across two floors, each decorated with vibrant Mexican-style décor. The bright blue bespoke bar, designed after the cantinas … Continued

Let’s talk about lunch

We are completely spoilt for choice around London Bridge (yes, that’s a little boast). Thank goodness for the mass of tourists continually trudging around Borough Market otherwise there would be a daily doughnut trip to Bread Ahead’s stall, and we’re grateful for the endless queues outside The Breakfast Club and Honest Burger, otherwise we’d be … Continued
