Salaam Namaste

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.

Lobster Kitchen

Breezy nights, cold beers & lobster galore at Lobster Kitchen in Fitzrovia

Sutton and Sons- Fish, Chips and Perfection in Stoke Newington

This is London… of course there’s plenty more fish (and chip shops) in the sea but… very few even come close to Stoke Newington’s ‘Sutton and Sons’- a blissful exercise in perfect batter and classic seafood dishes.

ChezBoubier3

Indulge in a Swiss-French Affair at Chez Boubier

If there is one thing Londoners are used to, its change. This over-crowded fast-paced media run city is dominated by technology and newly erected sky-high buildings. Ever evolving, Londoners are always on the hunt for the next big thing.

Valentina Fine Foods Chiswick

Make your food sing like an Italian Soprano at Valentina Fine Foods

Whether you are a regular visitor to Italy, or just have a passion for Italian food and cooking, it’s common knowledge what makes the famous cuisine so good is the quality of ingredients. Forget buying pasta from Sainsbury’s, if you can get the real deal why eat anything less superior?

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.

Cafe Football Exterior

Love Food, Love Drink, Love Football, Love Westfield

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.

Classic British Restaurant & Cocktail Bar in Dalston

Trip Space, a multi-functional cultural space beneath the railway arches of Haggerston have played host to a seriously eclectic array of events and activities covering everything from Contemporary Choreography and Acro Yoga through to Contact Improvisation though to my knowledge, never have their permanent offerings tasted so good.

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.

Stax Diner: The All-American Dream in West End

Another day, another diner… I can literally hear your eyes rolling from here. I say hold fire on that cynicism though city slickers; the newly opened Stax just off from Carnaby Street may be that little taste of authenticity you’ve been missing.

Salt N Pepper Pompadoms

Jack The Clipper in Whitechapel

Associations of being on the end of a switchblade in deepest Whitechapel will always conjure up images of fog-bound Victoriana. But that shouldn’t stop you taking a trip into latter-day Whitechapel (as yet still ungentrified - but they’ll get you my pretty, oh yes) and heading for Jack the Clipper for the shave of your life.
