If you like steak, and you have lived in London for any length of time, the odds are that you will have heard of, if not been to Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte, a steak restaurant not far from Oxford Street, on Marylebone Lane. Check out that queue! The basic premise is, they offer one starter and one main only – Walnut Salad and Steak Frites (Entrecote Steak and Chips) and their secret sauce (if you… View Post

Caravan, Kings Cross

Caravan, Kings Cross

Mark of a good restaurant? 8 hours in it & 3 meals – breakfast, lunch & dinner. The lushest Brownie. Ever. With a Kiwi accented menu (Sweetcorn Fritters anyone?), Caravan is quite industrial in decoration located in a converted Mill, but very comfortable nonetheless for the Kiwis, Pirates, Spaniels and brunchers flocking there.  Sweetcorn & Black Pudding Fritters. Bliss. We rather enjoyed exploring the menus, in between talking (hubby is sure “using more words in 8… View Post

Goodmans Review. Truly Scrumptious.

This Steak restaurant was a dream. It was scrumptious. Absoloutely delicious. My mouth is already watering.

We had pretty poor seats as the luck… View Post

The Wong Kei, the Chinese version of Faulty Towers – Reviewed.

The Wong Kei, although less of a fine dining restaurant and more of a London experience has good, value for money, quick food and is always busy, full of students and local Chinese people, which is always a great indicator of good local food. We love it. It’s a local landmark and for a quick, cheap, central meal almost can’t be beaten. It’s also notorious. Years ago the waiting staff used to be incredibly rude hurrying people along… View Post
