Their menu is reasonable priced from £2.50 to £9.50. Breakfast is available every day between 8-12. They also provide some delicious juices. I enjoyed the beetroot, Ginger and Apple juice.


After a long debate I decided to get the Cullen Skink Omelette with Horseradish cream. I was really happy about my choice and the haddock was cooked perfectly and the horseradish and crème fraiche weren’t too overpowering.


Another’s in attendance ordered the Buckwheat pancakes, Dorset Blueberries, Crème Fraiche & London Honey.


Also the Spiced Peaches, Cobnuts and organic cream on Brioche was ordered. Both looked delicious and I was tempted to have all 3 (Just Kidding!!).


Thanks Kapranos PR and The Alice House for a delicious breakfast.

Supper Tub

A couple weeks ago I attended the press evening for Supper Tub which is a new outdoor urban summer experience,situated on the canal side in Hackney Wick where guest can enjoy delicious food from warm hot tubs. It launched on the 3rd of July and runs for a month.


It’s a very unique idea and I was impressed with the overall experience. I myself didn’t get into the hot tubs but I was still able to enjoy a variety of small canapes from a Peruvian inspired menu.



We first enjoyed canapes served in crisp cups. They’re were 3 types of fillings. These were Sea Bass, Tiger Prawn and Avocado. I tried all of them and the Tiger Prawn was my favourite. They were nice and light and perfect as a hot tub snack. They are all priced at £4.



We also had skewers which were either Rump Steak, King Prawn or Halloumi. These were also delicious and priced at £4.50. I enjoyed all of these skewers.


Last, were the dessert skewers which were watermelon balls or Peruvian chocolate strawberries. These were really good and were a nice, light dessert to finish off the night. These are price at £3.50.


Tickets are from £20 (not including food) and each session is 2 hours long and a shower and changing rooms are provided. All you need to bring is your swimming costume and flip-flops. Towels are available to rent or you can bring your own.


Overall, I recommend going down to Supper Tub for a great, affordable and unique evening out.

For more information and to book your tickets head to the Supper Tub website.

Basement Sate Pastry Lesson

Last Week I attended a pastry lesson at Basement Sate which is a cocktail and dessert bar in Soho and they recently launched their new menu by their new chef Kelly Nadjarian.




IMG_8807We made a traditional French dessert called St Honoré Cake which Kelly was really passionate about as she is French herself. The dessert consists of caramel covered choux pastry filled with white chocolate Chantilly Cream and piped mascarpone Chantilly cream on a puff pastry base. It was a fairly straight forward dessert but it had a lot of components to it. There was 5 of us and we split up into small groups. Kelly assisted us but still allowed us to be independent in the majority of the lesson.


The pastry lessons are available on Wednesday with Kelly herself and guests are able to pick which dessert they can make. This can range from Macaroons to Brownies and lessons are priced at £70 for groups up to 5 which is a really good price compared to other lesson in London. There are also cocktail master-classes available for £30. Be sure to go to a lesson or just for some great cocktails and delicious desserts.


Thanks Basement Sate, Kelly and Kapranos PR for a great afternoon.

Joe’s Kitchen Kentish Town

I recently attended a press dinner at the new Joe’s Kitchen in Kentish Town and it didn’t seize to disappoint. Joe’s Kitchen have certain dishes that are only available at the Kentish Town restaurant and was really excited to try the new dishes.



We started off with one of the new dishes for the new chain, Deep Fried Short Rib Meat Loaf with red onion jam, poached egg and dijonnaise. I’d never tried meat loaf let alone fried meat loaf. It was sooo good and I would definitely recommend it.

IMG_8653Also new to the menu was the Gooey Corn Spoon Bread with clotted cream and red Leicester cheese. This was something different and delicious and wasn’t to heavy for  a starter leaving me with some room for the following courses.IMG_8646We also had  Devilled Eggs which were  filled with chicken skin mayonnaise and bacon crumbs. I’d never had devilled eggs like this so this was a nice change. IMG_8647We then had the mains and I was definitely looking forward to one of my favourite dishes from Joe’s Kitchen the Mac and Cheese. We also enjoyed the new Joe’s Chicken dish. The chicken is 24 hour Sweet Tea brined chicken with lemon dust. We also had a combination of ingredients that I’ve never heard of let alone tried. Buckwheat Waffles with Watermelon and bourbon maple syrup. This combo was to go with the chicken which all together tasted pretty good.

IMG_8659We then had Shrimp ‘N’ Grits  which contained stoneground cheese grits with shrimps, red onion, melted tomato, shredded house cured bacon and Camden ale jus. I’d never tried it before but really enjoyed it and will definitely get it again.



We then moved onto dessert and had a choice of 3 desserts. The first was a Southern Pecan Pie with Jim Beam Honey cream. This was my favourite dessert out of the 3 as it wasn’t too sweet and was too heavy for a dessert.


The second was an Iced Honeycomb and Chocolate Parfait Sandwich. This was a really nice dessert and I’m a big fan of honeycomb.


And last there was a Peanut Butter Fudge Pie with Chantilly cream. I’m not the biggest  fan of peanut butter but this dessert was really nice and the fudge filling was delicious.

IMG_8684I had a great time trying all the new dishes and old-time favourites and will definitely be going again very soon. This restaurant is nearer to me and so gives me another excuse to go to Joe’s Kitchen more often. Thanks for a great night Joe’s Kitchen and Kapranos PR.

Tom’s Kitchen Earth Hour Dinner

A couple days ago I attended an WWF Earth Hour Dinner at Tom’s Kitchen in Somerset House. Tom Aikens created a menu specifically for the night. Tom based his menu for the night based on the Six simple Live Well Rules set by WWF.

1) Eat more plants – enjoy vegetables and whole grains!

2) Eat a variety of foods – have a colourful plate!

3) Waste less food – one third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted.

4) Moderate your meat consumption, both red and white – enjoy other sources of proteins such as peas, beans and nuts.

5) Buy food that meet a credible certified standard – consider MSC, free-range and fair trade.

6) Eat fewer foods high in fat, salt and sugar – keep foods such as cakes, sweets and chocolate as well as cured meat, fries and crisps to an occasional treat. Choose water, avoid sugary drinks and remember that juices only count as one of your 5-a-day however much you drink.


As starters we were treated to Honey Mustard Glazed Sausages with Rosemary. They were delicious and had to control how many I took as I hadn’t even got to the main course yet.


 The other starter was a Toasted Brioche, Aubergine Caviar with Red Onion Jam. This also was delicious and made Aubergine taste great as I’m not a huge fan of Aubergine.



We then had a demonstration on one of the main courses by Head Chef Richard as Tom Aikens, the founder of Tom’s Kitchen was unable to attend. Richard cooked the Pearl Barley Risotto, with Basil & Grated Cauliflower. Really simple to make and Richard recommended using Barley instead of risotto rice as it’s cheaper and provides more nutritional benefits.





We then enjoyed a candlelit dinner with battery-powered tea lights to prepare us for the Earth Hour and inspire us to do so during the Earth Hour.



 The other main course which I had was the Mackerel Fillets with Apple & Potato Salad. This was a nice, filling salad which was healthy and delicious.


Lastly, for dessert we had Marmalade Bread and Butter Pudding with Bread and Butter Pudding Ice Cream. Instead of using regular bread, they used Brioche and Croissants. It was sweet and creamy and the perfect finish to the evening.


Don’t forget to do your part whether it be holding a candlelit dinner with friends or simply just turning your lights off this Saturday the 28th of March at 8.30pm  . And be sure to look out for famous landmarks such as the London Eye, and Big Ben who will be switching off their lights for WWF Earth Hour.

Novikov Restaurant Review

I recently dined with fellow Blogger Abimarvel at the Novikov Restaurant in Mayfair. The restaurant is split into two. There is an Asian Restaurant and an Italian Restaurant. We ate at the Asian Restaurant.

The manager of Novikov gave us a tour of the resturant and showed us the Resuarant’s Market. Within this market there were different fruits, vegetables and fresh seafood. You could pick anything you like and they would create a meal from the ingredients you chose.

We then decided what we were going to have meals from the menu. The manager recommended that we should have the black cod spring rolls with a mango sauce for a starter. We thought why not and so tried it and instantly knew why he recommended it. It was a very unique combination but worked so well together.

The Manager came over and told us the chef had made us raw seafood platter just for us which was extremely generous of him. We had no idea what to expect as all I really heard were the words ‘Raw’ and ‘Seafood’, which I had never tried so got a little bit nervous as I had no idea what to expect. A plate of raw scallops arrived and so we thought that was the platter. The actual platter arrived and it was huge. It looked very pretty and so was hoping it would taste good. We would try different things to make sure we tried everything and give each other feedback on each .Some were delicious.  And some were well interesting. I was surprised to find that caviar is actually delicious. It was definitely a very interesting and new experience for us.

We then decided what we were going to eat. Abi ordered the Roast Half Duck. She had the duck with Special Pork Char Sui fried rice.

I had Scottish diver scallops with yuzu mayonnaise & crispy lemon grass.

For Dessert Abimarvel had pineapple ravioli for dessert. I know ‘Pineapple Ravioli’. I didn’t know such a thing existed. It was delicious though and had a berry centre. On top was a scoop of berry sorbet.

Here’s the menu! Take a look!

I would definitely recommend you going to this restaurant. Here is the info.

Pizza Express Restaurant Review

My Mum, Little Sister and I went to Pizza Express in the  Birmingham Bullring Shopping Centre for lunch. It was all going well until my little sister received her pizza and found out it was burnt and mine was also burnt but I didn’t realise until I ate about a quarter of it.

My Mum decided to get the Mare E Monti which is Pizza Expresses Leggera Pizza which is when they take the middle of the pizza out and fill it with salad. It costs £9.45. It also contains about 500 calories. The toppings on this pizza is King prawns, mushrooms, red onions, olives, light mozzarella and Cajun spices.


My Little Sister had a Pepperoni Pizza which was 1 of the three food items she got with her children’s meal which cost £6.25. She also got a starter which was garlic dough balls and she also got a drink which was Gü Hot Chocolate which is steamed milk with Gü Chocolate. Her pizza was burnt, so we asked for them to get another one.


I also had a Leggera Pizza but mine was Margherita Leggera which costs £8.50. It has Light mozzarella, santos tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and basil leaves. A piece of my Pizza was burnt but I didn’t notice it until I had eaten about a quarter of it.

Overall the experience was good and the service was also good. I’ll definitely go to Pizza Express again but maybe not the Birmingham one only because I have one closer to where I live. There is nothing wrong with the Birmingham Pizza Express, so don’t let me stop you going there. The address is-

Level 7 & 9 Bullring
B5 4BU
