Exploring The French Riviera with Maison Christian Lacroix at The Mandeville Hotel in London

•••
Staying overnight in your home town is a very odd thing. I've done in the past without blinking an eye, but years later, settled down - it's a rather surreal experience. And one which I plan to pursue more. A short 20 minutes in a taxi later we were technically "on holiday" and for the purpose of this article's title, in the French Riviera - well almost. The[...]

REVIEW: Pizzicotto, Kensington High Street, Kensington, London

•••
Finding a good, classic Italian restaurant in London is harder than it sounds. I've found my personal favourites over time, but still to this day they're always missing that one little thing. Whether it's the ambience, a not quite satisfying starter or tiramisu lacking that Marsala kick. With my newest discovery however that may all be about to change, becau[...]

Exploring the Sherry Scented Sanlúcar de Barrameda at Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana

If any of you were stalking my Twitter feed recently, you may have noticed I spent 10 days in the beautiful sun drenched Andalusia in Southern Spain.

I first visited this part of the world around [...]

REVIEW: Circus Restaurant, Covent Garden, London

•••
So just the other night I ended up at a Circus believe it or not. OK well not exactly, but it felt like it, and the weirdest part - I was in the centre of Covent Garden. Circus restaurant opened up a few years back and since then has been one of London's best entertainment hotspots. When you think London couldn't possibly give you any more - it gives you cir[...]

REVIEW: Sushi and Robata, Whole Foods Market, Kensington, London

•••
You know, I do love sushi and over the last few years I've developed a dangerous obsession with this Japanese staple. Though it's not always been plain sushi sailing. Back in 2010, believe it or not - I used to hate the stuff. The texture of it used to send me into a near coma. I don't know why, but thankfully I've come to my senses, through one meal at one [...]

REVIEW: Weekend Brunch with Tunes at Canto Corvino in Spitalfields, London

•••
I said it in my last post and I'll say it again, I just don't get brunch. A mixture of lunch and breakfast items served at the weekend from late morning till mid-afternoon. Why not just breakfast before noon and a full lunch menu after? So many restaurant I want to visit at the weekend and really experience their menus, I can't - because brunch does limit yo[...]
