Dinner at Shoryu, Kingly Court

  Cronuts, burgers, pulled pork; us Londoners love a food craze. Over the last year ramen has joined the ranks of the city’s favourite dishes with restaurants dedicated to the stuff popping up everywhere. I still haven’t made it to…

Dinner at Smoking Goat, Soho

The thing with trying to find somewhere to eat in London is that everywhere looks so unassuming. Some of the best places I’ve eaten at have little-to-no branding and only seat 20 people max. Smoking Goat looks like a standard…

Lunch at Soupe du Jour, City of London

When I was invited along to taste the wares of Soupe du Jour, I was intrigued but not necessarily excited. I mean, soup is soup, right? To me it just brings connotations of grabbing a quick lunch from Sainsbury’s when it’s…

Banks – Koko, London

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am a closet geek. Well, closet in the way that I don’t wear massive glasses or know Klingon. Aside from that I’m pretty out and proud in my geekiness. Interrupt me…

Explore: Winter Wonderland

It’s the now annual pop-up festive event that people flock to every Christmas. A beautiful sight? Uh, no. Happy tonight? I guess. Yep, walking in the Winter Wonderland is essentially the lovechild of a dodgy German Christmas market and Blackpool…

Film: 50/50

I went to see 50/50 on one premise only: It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I don’t normally like films with Seth Rogen in, and I wasn’t sure if a comedy about getting cancer would be a bit to close to the…
