Review: Odoyo Waterproof Sports Earphones.

As the saying goes, ‘all good things must come to an end.’ After almost two years, I have had to retire my yurbuds so I’m on the market for new earphones, that is when I came across these Odoyo Waterproof Sports Earphones. With a 3.5mm earphone connector, the manual indicates it works mainly with Apple products but it also works …

Review: La polenteria

Polenta, God’s gift to the gluten free brigade and Italy’s secret staple finally has its own restaurant in London. Well, Polenta isn’t such a secret only that the rest of the world are more aware of pizza and pasta when it comes to Italian cuisine than they are of polenta. Anyway, the corn flower power house was tipped as one …

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 …

Few weeks ago I was at hot and happening bubble tea joint, Chew at Soho which I absolutely adored, and I found myself at Amanzi Tea a week later experiencing their …

Review: Chew, Soho

I’m a bubble beverage convert! Last night I tagged along to a friend and fellow writer’s visit to Chew and I was glad did. Chew is a new bubble beverage store which opened just three weeks ago in Soho. It was my first encounter with bubble teas or coffees and I enjoyed every minute of the experience. There were explosive …

Review: Yamal Alsham, Knightsbridge

With belly dancers and an exotic menu that takes you on a trip round the Middle East, Yamal Alsham, Knightsbridge opened with a lot of fan fare in December so I had high expectations when I visited earlier this year with a colleague. Located at Knightsbridge, the restaurant holds its own in the swanky neighbourhood. The rich interior of gold …

Review: Spianata, Mayfair

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 …
