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...

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...

I did it. After three (or more) years of wanting to get to the Dalston Roof Park, I finally did. And it was lovely! The sun was still in the sky (for a little bit anyway) when I arrived so the narrow uncovered strip was packed with people catching the last rays and get...

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...

Blingo – Hip Hop Bingo. Superfun. I love Bingo, I love Hip Hop and I had really enjoyed Bogan Bingo previously, which was from the same guys so I had high hopes. They were met.

How do they make Bingo = Blingo? Well, firstly with our inimitable hosts – Grandma Flash with...
