Studio Kitchen at K West Hotel – Shepherd’s Bush

Family and friends are what keeps us grounded in life. It’s important to spend time with both. True friendships stand the test of time, no matter how busy life gets. It felt very lucky to be asked to share a day with a close friend and her pampering relaxing birthday treat. To top off the…

The Colonnade – Little Venice

It was ideal┬áto go for Afternoon Tea with my friend who had first introduced me to the special indulgent world of this British ritual many years ago.┬áSince that day, Afternoon Tea has been one of my favourite things to do! The Afternoon Tea was served in the restaurant of the Colonnade Hotel. Despite it being…

Royal China – Bayswater

Sundays are a great time to see friends over a spot of brunch. This time it was brunch with a difference – a dim sum one! Royal China is a popular place and luckily as we had got there before noon, we didn’t have to queue. But by the time we left, there was a…

Down To Earth – Kensington High Street

Away from the busy shopping end of High Street Kensington and just after Holland Park is where Down To Earth is located. Down To Earth is an organic vegan and vegetarian cafe serving organic food, fairtrade coffees, speciality teas and ice cream. There are a lot of cakes including cheesecakes in the counter fridge.

Recipease – Notting Hill

It seems like we all go through phases with certain things and that can happen when it comes to going out to eat. There are times when similar types of eateries are gone to. Brunch was something that had not been done for quite a few months. So I was more than happy to try…

Esarn Kheaw – Shepherd’s Bush

Thai cuisine is one that I am very fond of and I can never resist a good Thai meal! Unfortunately, Esarn Kheaw was a huge disappointment. Apart from the friendly staff, we really did not enjoy our meal and time at Esarn Kheaw. For the starters, we had the tempura; deep fried mixed vegetables and…

Frontline – Paddington

Frontline prides itself on making food from locally sourced produce. The menu is quite small but has sufficient choice. On this cold winter’s day, there was no doubt what was needed; a bowl of hot soup. On the menu was celeriac, Bramley apple and whole chestnut soup. The combination sounded a little strange, but I…

Jom Makan – Westfield London

This Malaysian restaurant has a fairly extensive menu, but as we were there at lunchtime, we decided to go for the Spring Set Lunch! The Mee Goreng Sayur was supposed to be an egg noodle dish but it was nice that I was able to have rice noodles instead. The thin rice noodles, together with…
