Going to Beagle feels like quite an achievement being it has been on my list since it opened in 2013! It caught my eye as it was opened by the guys behind Krankbrothers which have provided me a seriously fun nights of clubbing once or twice.

This is an altogether more a...

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 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...

There was one thing that attracted me to Madame D's when I first heard about it. Naga chilli beef puffs. 

But they turned out to be a total disappointment. Naga my ass. I could not detect the merest hint of spiciness. As Stephen put it, they were like Chinese Cornish pa...

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...

I kinda wish we had left Del 74 after our first round of tacos. It was going well. I would even say very well. We were there for £2 Taco Tuesdays (which, admittedly, seemed like less of a bargain when we realised they were only £3 - £4 anyway, but still...) and it turn...

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...

Hopscotch was on my agenda as a new bar to try out but it was the food there I really took a shine to! After looking at the two menus available, we decided we liked the Dining Room one more, so instead of just going for a drink we purposefully got to the upstairs main...

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 (...
