Wagamama’s new Japanese-Inspired Breakfast

Wagamama, known for its tasty, good value, and quick Japanese meals is now looking to follow this trend by offering a breakfast menu. At their newly opened flagship restaurant on Marlborough Street, I was recently invited to try their new Japanese-British breakfast menu.

Learning the Art of Great Coffee at Harris+Hoole

Coffee is inescapable. Look on any high street and you see an abundance of cafés offering all types of coffee. So much so, that you know that this bitter but popular delicacy is going nowhere. However, the prestigious art of serving good coffee is another thing all together.

Review: Jamie’s Italian at Westfield Stratford Shopping Centre

Jamie’s Italian, in my opinion, is one of those places that have successfully combined tasty dishes but with a quality consistency that comes with being part of a chain. It is hard to do both – you get a lot of one-off restaurants serving great food, and a lot of chain restaurants serving mediocre food.

Now, there is no shortage of Spanish restaurants and tapas bars in London, but Mas Q Menos brings across from Spain an authentic and more casual style of Spanish dining than that we have seen in London so far.

Guyuan: Authentic Chinese Private Dining / Supper Club in London

I’ve lived in London for ten years, and a few weeks ago was the first time I had dined at Guyuan. That is how much of a secret this one table, private dining space has been kept from a foodie like me. A friend had invited me for a “feast”, and what a great dinner it turned out to be, one of the best meals I’ve had in London.

Review: Modern Portuguese Dining at Portal Restaurant

I always like to find hidden gems in London, and from the outside, Portal made a good first impression and fit the bill nicely. I’ve walked past this unassuming storefront many times, thinking it was maybe just a small family run restaurant or pub, but when you step inside you realise that the restaurant is huge, expanding deeply into the building.

Review: Marco Pierre White Restaurant at Hilton Syon Park

You might be wondering – do Marco Pierre White and Hilton hotels go together? I was contemplating the same on my way to the Hilton Syon Park, based West of London just across the river from Kew Gardens.

CRU Kafe: Premium Capsules for your Nespresso Machine

If you own a Nespresso machine, chances are that you bought it for a brew that was better than what you’d get from instant coffee, and close to what you’ll get with a proper espresso machine. Official Nespresso capsules have come close to that, but now, new kid on the block CRU Kafe have come closer.
