Celeriac Risotto

Vins Islington

15th June 2022

Last Friday, my partner and I treated ourselves to a date night. We finally,(after 2.5 years), dipped our toe into the world of babysitting. Luckily, our son’s nursery offer babysitting, so his keyworker was able to pop around. He loved having her here and showing off all of his toys and bedroom to her. It […]

Archies Cafe Archway

Archie’s Coffee Shop, Archway

4th August 2019

Since moving to Highgate last summer, I’m ashamed to say I haven’t done many brunch dates in the area. Whilst there are plenty of pubs to choose from for delicious dinners and stellar beer and wine options, it’s a little lacking for cute brunch spots. That’s until Archie’s opened up at the bottom of Highgate […]

This week I was fortunate enough to be invited along to try the menu at newly opened Bold, near Kentish Town. My good friend Chloe was invited to review, and she asked me to be her plus 1. We were offered a starter, main, dessert and drink each, and I was so impressed with this […]

Whittard Afternoon Tea

14th April 2019

Last weekend Stew and I ventured to Covent Garden, with Stew’s Mum, to try Whittard’s afternoon tea offering. After a few minutes wandering around Covent Garden, getting quite confused with Google maps, we found it downstairs in their tea bar. Having never ventured downstairs in the market, I didn’t realise how many gems were hiding […]

Brother Marcus, Angel

4th October 2018

I had seen Brother Marcus pop up on my Instagram feed a lot, but hadn’t taken the trip south of the river to try it for myself. Then I heard that they’d opened up a second location in Angel, and I knew I had to go! No excuses this time. And boy, am I glad […]

Padella pasta

Padella, Borough Market

26th July 2018

PADELLA. FINALLY! I could leave the review at that. All you really need to know is – go to Borough Market, eat pasta at Padella. If like me it’s taken you three years to get around to it, don’t be me. I’m silly. Padella is 100% worth the effort. Located in Borough Market, this cosy […]

Delicatessen Hampstead

Delicatessen, Hampstead

Stew and I enjoyed a cosy date night in Hampstead a couple of weeks ago, at a Middle Eastern restaurant called Delicatessen. Located just a short stroll from Hampstead underground station, Delicatessen offers alfresco dining, beautiful interiors, and unique dishes. Inspired by the rich and colourful culture of the Middle East, their menu explores a […]
