Forget the wintry weather, grab some sunshine at the Ceru pop up

Having visited their multi-coloured radiant summer pop up by Tower Bridge during the warmer months of July and August, I was curious to see what they have been up to with their winter pop up special on Cannon Street. Ceru specialises in food from the Levant which is a large part of the eastern Mediterranean.

Bringing street food to the heart of the West End with Whaam Bánh Mì

Hip street food vendors shouldn't be the preserve of music festivals or east London hoxtonites, thankfully we are seeing an increasing revival of the culinary scene in Soho. Whaam Bánh Mì is one such venue adding some extra colour to the area literally, with its sharp yellow frontage and pop art posters, it instantly catches the eye of the passer-by.

There are a multitude of captivating window displays along the King's Road but it takes iron will and determination to not pause and salivate at L’Eto Caffe's mouthwatering food display. Using floor to ceiling windows, they have very strategically placed finely crafted artisanal cakes at the forefront of the shop display.

Vietnamese Street food: The secret is all in the Bún

I've done a lot of reviews in the Square Mile, but ashamedly I've never visited the Phở Mile in Shoreditch. Well there isn't much around that section of Shoreditch, apart from well...Vietnamese restaurants. Much like pizza places, they are great for visiting in your local area, but would you travel across town just for a bowl of phở?

King's Cross is fast becoming a mecca for foodies to congregate around, from fine dining restaurants to casual eateries, the area has it all. I was tasked to investigate the second restaurant opening of Pizza Union; the Spitafields branch has been incredibly successful with students and office workers readily queuing around the blocks for a slice of Pizza Union action.

Sophisticated Modern and Traditional Indian Cuisine at Salaam Namaste

It seems to be the trend these days to describe everything with superlatives when writing a food review, its either ‘the best’ or ‘the worst’, just being good is not good enough. So far I have refrained from this trend. However, there is no stopping me now when I say I think I have eaten the most amazingly perfect Indian cuisine in London today.

Pond Restaurant

True Authentic Flavours of Hawaii from across The Pond in Dalston

The combination of the words ‘theme’ and ‘restaurant’ would usually be enough to send most self-respecting gourmands running for the hills but, here in our funny old metropolis, there’s often an exception to any rule. Pond in Dalston is one such place- a homage to the Hawaiian dining craze sweeping across America, or from "across The Pond", and certainly no relation to the downmarket ‘tiki huts’ blighting the landscapes of suburbia.

In the interest of total transparency, I must hold my hands up and admit I’m a total football layman… well, more of a football moron really. I know absolutely nothing at all about our nation’s favourite sport other then it involves a ball, a pitch, well-paid players and hordes of extremely passionate fans so, admittedly, it was with some trepidation that I headed East to Café Football.

Little Bay Restaurant: An Operatic European Dining Experience in Farringdon

Little Bay is one of those places that just becomes dear to the heart of those who stumble across its warm embrace, managing to combine the three things that are starting to, sadly, disappear across the landscape of our food scene here in Britain- good, honest bistro food at prices that won’t require a second mortgage, served up with a twist of classic British eccentricity.
