Cereal. What’s the first thing which comes to mind? For me, it tends to be something healthy-ish, like muesli topped with banana, or shreddies and strawberries. Cravings tend to come at any time of day. And yes, cereal for dinner is something I definitely do every now and again! Cereal is one of those simple things which brings such food happiness, which is why the Cereal Killer Cafe had to be on my list! The first cereal-themed cafe in the UK, Cereal Killer Cafe now has two London branches and one in Birmingham. The Camden branch was the second launch for Cereal Killer Cafe, and is located in the Stables Market – the super cool market with an array of eateries, clothing and accessory stalls/stores and…

The queues for this Parisian creperie stand say it all. Located on Hampstead High Street, alongside the King William IV pub, La Creperie de Hampstead has been a permanent fixture since 1980, and is always fashioning a queue. For over 30 years, La Creperie de Hampstead has been serving up traditional Parisian crepes, with all manner of sweet and savoury fillings from asparagus and cheese to jam, or chocolate, hazelnut and cream. With over 25 different flavour combinations on the menu, the choices are almost overwhelming. Although the queues can get pretty long on sunny days, it’s definitely worth the wait. Heading up to Hampstead on an overcast day, with the odd patchy drizzly shower, the queue time was only about 15 minutes! Definitely a winning situation. …

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…

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…

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…
