Som Saa – Spitalfields, London, UK

Som Saa – Spitalfields, London, UK

How great is it having friends all over the world? SW and his girlfriend A are always super fun to hang out with when we’re in London. This time we decided to check out Spitalfields, which we hadn’t been to much before, and A recommended […]

Bandol – Chelsea, London

Bandol – Chelsea, London

SVT and I used to be part of a kind of informal dinner club with a couple of school friends. When we realised she was moving to London, it made us sad – but also excited about the possibility of reuniting dinner club in London! […]

Yashin Sushi and Bar – London, UK

My last day in London was characterised by frantic shopping on High Street Kensington. I think I bought at least 3 pairs of shoes, then wondered how I’d fit them in my already full bag… After all that running around on a stinking hot London […]

Shake Shack – Covent Garden, London, UK

Sure, dining at Michelin Starred restaurants is a treat, but sometimes you just want a good ol’ burger. Amirite? A few weeks before I went to London, I found out that Shake Shack had opened in Covent Garden. Having heard of this fabled institution from my friends […]

The Ledbury – Notting Hill, London, UK

On a holiday, where you manage to go to a 1 Michelin Star restaurant (which also holds the #7 spot on the 2013 World’s 50 Best Restaurants index) as well as a 2 Michelin Star restaurant – I think it’s fair to say you’ve done pretty well. […]

Orso – London, UK

On DS’s last night in London we decided to go all out at a nice Italian restaurant called Orso, recommended by a kind friend. The friendly, almost homely (how cute are the colourful plates!) atmosphere was most welcoming – quite different to some of the […]

Kaffeine – London, UK

In Sydney, we are used to great cafe culture. In London, with all it’s chain cafes and restaurants, this may seem harder to come by. However, with the help of Twenty Something London, DS and I were able to find Kaffeine – a place with sandwiches, […]

Disco Bistro EC4 – London, UK

Walking to this restaurant from Blackfriars station I couldn’t really figure out what to expect. Every second building I was passing contained a law firm or two, yet this quirkily named restaurant is right amongst it? Disco Bistro made me think of a roller disco […]

Granger & Co. – Notting Hill, London, UK

Judging from the giant queue outside Granger & Co. on a Sunday morning, I guess that Bill Granger’s fame has spread to London. Located on a cute street in Notting Hill, the packed restaurant is the perfect place for Sunday breakfast and brunch. Surprisingly (and […]

Sophie’s Steakhouse – Chelsea, London, UK

There’s 2 branches of Sophie’s Steakhouse in London – one in Chelsea and one in Covent Garden. Claiming to “provide the best steak in London”, I thought I should probably give it a try (and also because it’s walking distance from my house!). The menu […]
