I was already very familiar with Smokestak from their street food days which is why going to their permanent place in Brick Lane wasn't something I rushed to do. I knew whenever I got around to going it would be a treat, and it was.

Obviously, with having a larger, immo...

I should have written about Science Showoff years ago as I like to write about the first time I've been. But I didn't. But I went recently so that's a good excuse to rectify my wrong.

Science Showoff gives real scientists doing real research in the field and in the lab...

After an experimental outing to Scout not too long ago, I found myself in another cocktail bar in East London that was positively exuding aching cool by the very minimal and Scandi decor, pepped up with a bit of naked flesh on the walls. And weird ingredients. But not...

I have to say, I certainly liked Hip Chips. The chips were tasty, the dips good (even if I did it wrong - more on that later) and the choice almost paralysing.

But why would anyone ever go?

This is another of your one-item restaurants, this time crisps (though for poetic...

I don't think anyone can say they've not heard of the Cereal Killer Cafe, such was the bile and scorn poured on it from all corners for being the epitome of hipster wank. I never understood why it drew such harsh criticism. Yes, you are paying £5 for a bowl of cereal,...

When I told my ex I had been at the new place from the people by Bao, he scoffed they were turning into a chain already. Oh no no no, I chastised. This is something altogether different. Not a bao in sight (I don't think).

This place is grown up. This place takes reserv...

Wine. I like it. A lot. And lots of different varieties. Though I often find myself sticking to Pinot on an evening out – it’s reliable, its drinkable on its own, and crucially it doesn’t cost too much. But I like to try new things and having a friend date is a good ex...

I am quite a proponent of solo dining – you get to eat where you want to eat, when you want to eat, without having to share, so when I was asked if I would take part in a solo dining challenge with Pizza Union I was quite happy to say yes.

Planning ahead I had a feeling...

Who thinks a spelling bee sounds like fun? Well, weirdly, I do and so do quite a few other people and, because this is London and there is anything you could ever want in London, there is one!

Jordi explained to us he quit his job to start a new events company which foc...

Corazon, another in the spate of taquerias that are blessing London with their presence. (I love tacos). Did Corazon steal my heart (which probably belongs to Breddos, although I have not yet tried their ‘proper’ place)?

Well, it was pretty good! We shared three tacos (...
