I’d been meaning to try this Lebanese place ever since Alex kept saying how good it was, following lunchtime trips almost every Friday with his work colleagues at his old place. This is THE place that converted Alex to a fan of all Lebanese food, rather than just a consumer of the odd kebab – yes, you get Lebanese kebabs too. It’s a middle eastern cuisine with regional influences rather than just a Turkish dish.  Stumbling across the newest branch in Bath – I didn’t realise they’d spread out across the UK so quickly – our lunch destination changed. The interiors, which run right through the restaurant, are always vibrant and fun. The patterned tiles, fun prints and pinups, and traditional ornaments and hats on…

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…

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…

Barbecue food isn’t what it used to be. It’s not banging a burger on the disposable barbecue, or flipping sausages until almost burnt just to make sure they’re cooked, before serving in a roll oozing with ketchup or yellow mustard. Nope. Go out and see barbecue food on a menu, and expect slow cooked meats, tender rich brisket, juicy beef short rib and flavoursome burnt ends. Ok, so it’s another of the American influences which has made its way over here, South-West American to be exact, and this style of cooking is AWESOME. St. Bart’s Brewery, in Smithfield, is one of the restaurants on the London food scene which has jumped on the trend, but added their own little touch – all of the meat…

I told you guys all about what my sister, Emma, planned for my birthday recently (read my post here). She did a stellar job, full of surprises and giggles along the way. Well, with a full day out, we obviously had to stop for a bite to eat. And she totally smashed that too. Opening my little stage 2 card, on the Saturday it didn’t give much away apart from the fact that she was treating me to lunch. And that’s when she took me to Bill’s. In my eyes, Bill’s is always a winner. Jumping the queue, as Emma had thought ahead and booked us a table, we settled into a cute little table for two – Emma taking the comfy sofa seat along…
