Las Iguanas – The O2 Greenwich

We initially came to this Latin American restaurant for coffee but then ended up returning to it later in the day for an evening meal! Its nice that the restaurant is divided into sections: one part for the restaurant and the other part with comfy seats for drinks! The latte and mocha drinks were really…

Hisar – East Dulwich

A very reasonably priced Turkish restaurant in the centre of East Dulwich. I always like to start with the Hisar Mantar: fried breadcrumbed mushrooms with garlic mayonnaise. This goes well with the yogurt, cucumber and mint starter. The Patlican Salata had a nice taste with the flavours of the aubergine, peppers, tomatoes complemented by the garlic, lemon, mint…

Stage Door Cafe – Sadlers Wells Theatre Islington

This is a nice enough cafe next door to the Sadlers Wells Theatre. At first, it looks like they only have a few of the high metal tables and chairs by the counter. But at the back, it opens out into the garden court area. This is indoors and is very light and airy. The…

Pizza Marzano – Paris (Saint Michel)

If you want to have good pizza while enjoying the views of the Seine and Notre Dame, then Pizza Marzano is the place to go. The waitress was really friendly and the service was great.

Cafe Leo – Sheen Lane

I found myself at Sheen Lane again this week and decided to try the bacon and egg rolls offered by Cafe Leo. Now being an old fashioned Northerner born and bred, when I order a bacon and egg butty, I expect to get an egg with some bacon slapped between two slices of bread (served up…

Cafe Rouge – Highgate

What I like about Cafe Rouge is that you can come here just for drinks or for a proper meal. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff don’t rush you in any manner. The red and white furniture complements the dark wooden surroundings. It does feel like a bistro that you would get in…

Le Pain Quotidien – Soho

We’ve been to Le Pain Quotidien many a time and it is good at any time of the day! It’s great to go early in the morning when the pastries are all fresh. They do good quality croissants and pain au chocolat. The granola with yogurt could have done with more yogurt to balance out…

Sapori – Covent Garden

A great pizzeria tucked away from the busy streets of Covent Garden. This restaurant is quite small although it does have some tables downstairs. We were lucky to be seated upstairs! The decor is pretty cool; nice artwork on the wall and strings of lights near the back of the restaurant. The staff were really friendly…
