Review: Ergon, London

I was recently at Greek restaurant Ergon to sample their new deli menu. Ergon is fairly new, it’s been around for about five months so a baby in restaurant years but its success is not a surprise. Fuelled by delicious authentic Greek food and an ambitious owner, Ergon is going places. Mostly Europe and then America in early 2015. I …

Review: Bourne and Hollingsworth

Welcome to cocktail mecca, that’s how my colleague described Bourne & Hollingsworth so naturally I was eager to experience it for myself. Modelled on the idea of prohibition, the bar is literally underground – it’s in the basement of an old supermarket in Fitzrovia and the cocktails are served in teacups and jars to disguise it as it was done …

Review: Spaghetti House, Knightsbridge

On a night I decided to go on a little health kick to shed a few pounds, going to Spaghetti House was probably not a wise decision but the visit had been planned weeks ahead and their menu, much like our delightful waiter, Francesco, was too hard to resist. Delicious food doused in olive oil, friendly staff not to mention …

Review: Yamal Alsham, Knightsbridge

I was at Spianata, five weeks ago and thinking back, two things come to mind, controlled sandwiches and exceptionally delicious paninis. The second point is self-explanatory- Paninis from Spianata are very tasty which I guess shouldn’t be a surprise considering the company’s Italian roots. Originating from Rome where every meal is an event, this sandwich shop uses only fresh ingredients …

Review: Ping Pong Restaurant, Wembley. London Designer Outlet

I had heard great things about Ping Pong so I wanted to kill two birds with one stone – visit Ping Pong and check out the London Designer Outlet, all for the first time. With seven restaurants already opened around London, I had high expectations of the newly opened Ping Pong restaurant and I wasn’t disappointed. It became quickly obvious …

Review: Reach Bar & Kitchen

The one question I kept mauling over as I travelled almost 3 hours to get to Reach Bar and Kitchen was, why would anyone come all this way to visit a pub? Well, the answer is surprisingly good food! The protracted journey might not suit someone from the other end of London but for the residents of Gallions Reach, it …

Learn to cook Thai at Mango Tree

More than just a cooking class: Last night was my fourth visit to Thai restaurant Mango Tree and the experience gets better with each visit. This latest visit was for a Thai cooking masterclass taught by celebrity chef Ian Pengelley. The night was more than just a cooking lesson; it was a fun night of interactive cooking, a joking chef …

Euphorium Bakery

New City Location City workers are in for a treat; Euphorium Bakery, one of London’s oldest artisan bakeries has just opened a flagship store on Threadneedle Street. At the official launch last week, I was really impressed with the interior – high ceilings, handmade wooden tables and traditional furnishings, a sitting area over two floors and interesting paintings too. It …
