Ma’Plucker, W1F

October 22, 2015


Southern soul food is on our streets in our hearts and in our pants. With buttermilk walls and biscuits (yes biscuits) in gravy, Ma’Plucker just became Soho’s best m’a plucking chicken joint Where: Beak Street What’s it like? Like sitting in the kitchen of your auntie Rachel from New Orleans bang in the middle of her southern belle breakdown, mainly about chicken. Vibe: Bright […]

Lobster Bar, E8

September 23, 2015


It finally happened. A lobster bar came to Hackney making the foodie strip on Richmond Rd pretty much a boulevard of my favourite things to eat; pizza and shellfish. But it’s pricey.    Where: Richmond Road, E8 What’s it like? Simple, small tables, some booths, open plan, candlelit. Vibe: Comfy. Casual. Any occasion; friends, family, dates […]

Blacklock, W1D 7 LG

September 8, 2015


A chop house located in a former brothel you say? Well, every place has a past. But the brothel thing isn’t Blacklock’s only USP; all the meat is seared with a Blacklock clothes iron from 1800. Run by a triumvirate of ex-Hawksmoore employees, this walk-in only meat factory is value for money instead of style over substance. Where: The Basement, […]

As any Partridge fan can vouch, when Youth Hostelling With Chris Eubank finally become a reality after 18 years, it was a weep-worthy event. How did it happen?

he's done it again. Course he has, he's always bloody doing it, but does his new tapas place off Oxford Street pack the same punch as the other "Social" branded establishments? I'm going with 'ISH.

VERDI’S E1 (For a great lobster pasta)

August 3, 2015


Besides my dear pal Bella Vita on Broadway Market and Ombra on Cambridge Heath Road, I've been struggling to find a reliable local Italian around Hackney. But more than that, one that serves a decent lobster linguine...

Berber & Q, Sushi, Netil 360 Rooftop Bar

Comments Off on Berber & Q, Sushi, Netil 360 Rooftop Bar

YAUATCHA (W1F) It’s the new dim sum place in Broadgate Circus. Heart of Finance-ville and certainly feels it. Nice steamed Scallop Shui Mai but some dishes are a little on the Chinese Takeaway side. The best thing I can say about this place is there’s a cash machine outside, the staff are very sweet and desserts could give […]

Comments Off on Braces at 30 – and I’m still smiling
