Marine Ices – Camden Town/Chalk Farm

For all you gelato enthusiasts, such as ourselves, it is a relief to know that the institution that is Marine Ices is not closing down. Instead it is moving to a new location, just down the road, with the shop front marked by the beautiful wisteria tree! The new branch of Marine Ices is concentrating…

Taste of Siam – Camden

It had been a while since my friend and I had been out for Thai food and we were kind of missing it. So we took it for a sign when we were supposed to go out for Greek food and the restaurant could not take us as they were fully booked for a private…

The Cuban – Camden Town

For a lively Friday night out with the combination of tasty food and some dancing, The Cuban will not disappoint! The Cuban has the hip location of being in The Stables part of Camden Market. The ground floor is the big bar area with some seating as well. It took us a short while to…

Tupelo Honey – Camden Town

Tupelo Honey looks ok when you enter but it did not take long to be disappointed with this place. All the food on the counter is open and looked stale. The main dishes in the counter fridge were already prepared and cooked, and would only be warmed up if ordered. Right next to the window…

Caponata Osteria and Bar – Camden Town

Caponata was full of surprises from the first moment we stepped inside. At first, it looked just like a normal restaurant with wood panelling and plastic seating. We were welcomed by the very friendly staff, who told us that this level of the restaurant was the informal Osteria, which means bar/inn in Italian. It had a…
