Festive Feels at M Restaurant, Victoria

Instead of presents this year, my boyfriend and I decided we would go out for a lovely Christmas meal instead. We wanted to eat somewhere that we wouldn’t choose usually, and so we went through the entire ‘star deals’ section on the Bookatable app (which we highly recommend btw).  After a few days messaging backwards…

12 hours in Dublin: a foodies guide

We’ve always heard Dublin is an expensive city, so it wasn’t a surprise to find that it’s pretty much the same price as, if not more expenny than London. However, there are some great deals to be had and you can eat smartly for a fraction of the price of some of the more tourist…

Cheese Appreciation Society at 90 Degree Melt, Mile End

We were so excited to stumble across, by chance, a new restaurant to East London #winning. 90 Degree Melt has just opened, less than a week ago, on Mile End Road. Geared towards tapas-style grilled cheese sandwiches and American comfort food, this place is cool, a nice place to hang out and always importantly – they really love cheese.  …

Halloween at Limehouse Basin Social Market

Last Saturday the @ldn_eats team were invited to Limehouse Basin Social Market, a collection of fresh produce stalls (including fruit and veg, cheese, coffee and delicious bread and cakes), hot food (including The Backstreet Diner, Twist of Brasil, Curry Cook House and others) as well as stalls selling clothes, jewellery, candles and much more. The market…

Vietnamese style BBQ at CôBa, King’s Cross

CôBa is a contemporary and fashionable Australian-inspired restaurant, specialising in Vietnamese BBQ dishes. We didn’t know barbecue could feel so healthy up until now but the food at CôBa left us feeling full without it being stodgy! A slight downside is the location – it’s not in the most ideal place, being approximately a 20-minute…

A foodies guide to celebrating ‘World Vegan Day’

Today is World Vegan Day so we thought we’d share with you an excellent restaurant we tried recently in Bristol, which does tasty, ethically sourced vegan food. No.1 Harbourside, right by (you guessed it) the harbour in Bristol, is an ideal spot for an afternoon session of people watching. Celebrating local, ethically sourced foods this…

One of our favourite chefs brings Africa to Farringdon

African Afternoon Tea – what might that entail, I hear you ask. We’ve never really eaten much African food before and so this was a new experience we were more than happy to try! We were fairly sure it would be a breath of fresh air and a change from the usual English version that…

Swinfen Hall, one of the finest hotels in the English countryside

At the moment @ldn_eats is inadvertently turning into a UK luxury travel blog. I’ve been all around the houses recently, due to work taking me to some of the finest satellite towns spanning the width and breadth of the UK. This week I was in Lichfield (admittedly, a city), west of Birmingham, which didn’t get…

An afternoon at Sketch, Mayfair

Afternoon tea is genuinely one of my favourite ways to spend an afternoon. What better (and more British) way to pass a few hours than eating mini cucumber sandwiches and dainty pastries whilst sipping on a cup of Rosie Lee’s finest? So, when my best friend from Melbourne came to visit and told me her trip to London wouldn’t be…

Fish is the Dish of the Day, at Bistro 8 Southampton

Bistro 8 is a beautiful restaurant, based right upon the Universal Marina in Southampton. As soon as we got out the taxi I could smell that cool, salty sea air as the breeze swept over us. The decor is a cool mix of modernity and rustic charm. The waiters are friendly, helpful, and put up…
