Dining out on fancy a.k.a no basic Nandos dinner dates has become a bit of a rarity for us. It isn’t that we don’t want to because trust me – there are so many restaurants out there that I would love to go to – but quite simply, we’re just a bit smarter with our money. K told me about Gymkhana a few months ago and it is notorious for its difficulty in booking reservations. You can’t book more than two months in advance and even then getting a decent dinner time reservation was harder than it seemed. After managing… View Post
I seafood, and I eat it. – Geddit? ha ha ha. American dining restaurant, Big Easy has two branches in London: Kings Road and Covent Garden. With its amazing food, live entertainment and back bar it is no wonder that it is one of the busiest places to dine. I have been lucky enough to have eaten at Big Easy Covent Garden twice now, but that does not include being turned away at the door on four other occasions – yeah it is THAT busy. Reservations are an actual MUST for Big Easy. Nonetheless it can not be as bad… View Post
It is no big secret, that I eat like a man. I’m not your typical, salad-eating-I-can’t-finish-my-food type of girl. I will choose to order the full rack of ribs, not half. I will have cheesy chips, not plain chips. And yes, there is always room for dessert. However, what I will never seem to understand, is why some girls – yes, not all girls – think that just because they are out on a date with a guy, they need to eat less? “As if eating sooooo much, makes you suddenly sooo unattractive.” Okay, I get it. What guy wants… View Post
(This is an article that was written for my Creating Packages module. It was written for a food magazine, that me and a group had created known as – Eat Me Drink Me UK) I would like a double cheeseburger with extra cheese, jalapeños, mushrooms, lettuce, red peppers and fried onions accompanied with a side order of large Cajun chips and a pink lemonade drink please. Most of us would agree that we love a good burger, but do we love it enough to break tradition of removing a beloved local pub? Baroosh a joint restaurant and bar, is located… View Post

I love discovering new restaurants that I am still yet to sit down and have a delicious meal in… I literally buzz inside. Especially when I’m thoroughly analysing the menu and mentally picking out my favourites in my head. It was only when I was out with my best friend, that I discovered, a special hidden gem in one of the small roads in-between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. The American chain restaurant Planet Hollywood.
In short. My guilty pleasure is to switch off the light at 10pm, lie in bed, get comfortable and switch the TV on to my favourite TV channel. A TV channel that teases me, and leaves me with unsettling cravings that can last all the way until the morning. The food network. I love watching Man Vs Food, Man Vs Food Nation, Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, and last but not least Bitchin Kitchin. I hate the aching dissatisfaction I get from not being able to cook or eat the food that is upon the screen though. That was until, I… View Post
Monday 20th January 2014 is said to be the gloomiest, most depressing day of the year 2014. Not to mention my critical issue fashion assignment was due in that day. BOO! So let’s do some maths and calculate that as a double gloomy, and double depressing day shall we? But not to be feared, the day was bearable for one reason, well five… Five Guys in Covent Garden, that is! Having opened in the summer of 2013, (I remember it like it was yesterday, I was a fool for not going in when it first opened. I was literally walking… View Post
