Honest Burgers – One of London’s finest

Burgers in London are big business. If you’re stuck in a boardroom full of dry, dull, fellow employees with zero chat, try throwing the question “What’s your favourite burger in London, Clive?” into the mix and I guarantee, verbal war will descend. One burger which, for me, has long prevailed is Honest Burgers. They wormed their […]

Sun’s out, buns out: Beer & Buns is where it’s at

If you didn’t know it was there, you’d miss it. Right in the heart of …the city (wait, don’t groan) is this tiny, awesome little Japanese-themed drinking bar which seduced the hell out of us with everything they’re about.

At the time of writing this, it’s just turned 4pm, yet I’m still re-living this morning’s breakfast on a slow-mo looped scene in my head like a meaty little feature film. My day’s been a bit of a blur as a result of the heaven-sent start to […]

Sushi in the City: How not to spend a fortune…

 Conveyor sushi doesn’t mean high street sushi It was a discussion with a friend the day before which made this review particularly poignant. The two of us raw-fish-lovers were agonising over how expensive good sushi restaurants in Central London can be. My friend had recently enjoyed a fantastic sushi dining evening which was then tainted by […]
