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…

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…

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…

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…

The Englishman’s Italian: Bunga Bunga, Battersea

Girl’s Night Out. Anyone who’s watched Sex and the City will know about Girl’s Night… 5 best friends, fashion forward outfits, food in lavish restaurants, fruity cocktails, dancing til the early hours. GNO. Bunga Bunga, based on Battersea Bridge Road is a lively wining and dining experience that captures all we want and look for…

Girl Power at Roof East, Stratford 

I’ve never been to a Rooftop Cinema before, but living in London it’s always been on my bucket list. When I saw a viewing of Spice World being advertised I knew it was time to call all my friends together for a bit of Girl Power. Roof East is at the top of the Stratford…

Patisserie Lila, Borough Market

I arrived a bit early for Sunday Brunch with one of my best friends who’d popped down from Manchester for the weekend. I scouted the area around Borough Market and this place jumped out – it’s really cute, kitch and has that cafe culture which I love about London. Also, the cakes in the window…

Bombay meets London, Dishoom King’s Cross

It’s 8pm on a nondescript Tuesday night in London. I’m walking out of Dishoom and there’s 50 person plus queue out the door… I’m thanking my past self for getting there early and walking in to find there’s a table available for us. Dishoom, on Stable Street, King’s Cross is a huge eclectic mix of…

Deliciously Ottolenghi, Belgravia

We came here by mistake. On an August’s summer morning our route driving down to Brixton was disrupted because RideLondon – one of London’s many sporting events –  meant there was road closures of all of London’s main bridges, meaning we couldn’t get south of the river. So, we parked up around Knightsbridge tube station,…
