I pitta the fool who thinks that Hummus isn’t good enough for dinner. I cannot tell you hummus I crave a warm pitta and a big bowl of the thick, creamy, chickpea dip we all love, even for dinner – Oh Hummus is my fave thing to be tucking into right now. So I obviously had to try out Hummus Bros, a Mediterranean restaurant and the first in the UK to serve hummus as a base for main courses. Kim and I popped along one evening to satisfy those cravings before an event. The laid-back Levantine eatery, has a clean and contemporary feel, with monochrome interior and a little splash of colour here and there. Offering a completely relaxed dining experience, Hummus Bros feels a little like an…

Escape the city. Let’s face it, sometimes we really want to, or even need to. Just to grab a moment of serenity. Just for yourself to breathe, take 5 and think about the here and now. Not let any of the work stress or city anxieties, the daily to-do list or bills, get through. Just to relax. The city can be a little too much sometimes. Always on the go, constantly something to do or see. Working days are known to be longer in the big smoke too, and with everything on top, it can get a little much – and that’s perfectly normal. Escaping at lunch for a break (when possible) isnt really always escaping either, with everyone available at the end of a…

I’m going to say it. Balls are often best. Ok, now let’s not confused, I mean food served as balls. Falafel, tender rich meat balls, peaches, popcorn chicken, digestive nibbles, cod crochettes, Maltesers and Forrero Rocher (bet you thought I’d forget that one). They’ve become so popular that there’s even a new restaurant in Soho just serving spherical food! I know, it’s on my list. Well, there’s one street food trader already thoroughly rocking the ball scene – Arancini Bros. Arancini Bros is well known on the London and street food scene for its Arancini, or to the rest of us, handmade risotto balls. Lightly coated, these little balls of cheesy, creamy risotto, are fried until crisp and golden. Kim and I decided to venture…

SO, sometimes I’m lazy. You know those days where you just can’t be bothered to do much? I know you have those too. Well, some days I like to just stay in, snuggled up on the sofa, with my laptop and a good tv series. Sometimes the days start with a gym sesh, making me feel less guilty for the laziness, others I roll out of bed and only make it the sofa. I’ll leave for the supermarket to pick up a few bits for dinner if I have nothing in, but will only pop to the nearest Budgens. Weekend supermarket trips to the larger superstores are a nightmare! So you can see why I got excited when I heard about Pilot, a new on…

I’d heard so many amazing things about Flat Iron, from numerous different people, and they’d always said that the queue was worth it. And I can now tell you, Flat Iron didn’t just meat all my expectations, it totally exceeded them. And now…the steaks are raised for any other meat restaurant on my list. Ok I’ll stop with the puns now. I did make myself giggle a little. Flat Iron is another restaurant which has been on my list of places to visit for what seems like a lifetime. We tried to go to the soho branch a while ago, one Saturday afternoon, and the queue was almost 3 hours long! With it starting to rain, and the queue heading out into the street, we decided…
