Madam Chi Coffee Lounge – Angel

It is refreshing to have a coffee lounge that is open late into the evening and it’s all thanks to Madam Chi! At least you can go here and not have to worry about the time! Madam Chi is spread over two floors and we chose to have our drinks on the upper level this time….

Papa Del’s – Highgate

Two huge wooden tables and long benches make up Papa Del’s communal dining area! There are also a few window seats! Papa Del’s has a very natural feel to it. The tables are uneven so that slate placemats are used to keep the plates level! It was nice to have such a dining area with all…

Konoba Varos – Split, Croatia

Konoba Varos has to be my favourite restaurant that we went to on our Croatia trip. Again, it was tucked away on one of the back streets but this didn’t mean that it was any less busy. Actually on both occasions, we were lucky to get a table as we hadn’t prebooked. Konoba Varos had…

Benito’s Hat – Covent Garden

There’s a funky mural on the back wall towards the bar area of the restaurant. All these elements set the theme of a relaxed eatery. The restaurant is made up of…

It made a refreshing change to have many savoury items and less of the sweet ones! Instead of small finger sandwiches, we were given two whole sandwiches, cut into triangles! The cheese and…

Lakorn Thai – Angel

Lakorn Thai is an average Thai restaurant close to the Sadlers Wells Theatre in Islington. The food is not outstanding nor is it bad. The restaurant seemed to have two dining areas: one close to the entrance and one through an archway. Lakorn Thai was nicely decorated and was also quite light due to its…

Portal – Farringdon

For a really special occasion, Portal is the place to go! Exquisite food, excellent service and a wonderful atmosphere is what this restaurant is all about! On entering Portal, there is the bar area. The restaurant area is slightly separated from the bar and it extends right through into the conservatory! As we were early,…
