I am loving this dinner right now – it's one of those things you discover when you come home from work, tired and hungry and find out you only have an odd selection of ingredients to choose from. I literally shoved it all in a pan and hoped for the best. But, as it turned out, it was bloody great and I was super proud of myself for at least three days.
What are you having for lunch this week? If you're anything like me, you'll have celebrated the end of the longest month in the history of the world and gone a little overboard on pay day. There's no shame in it - I have a sneaking suspicion we're all guilty this time. But sadly, now sacrifices have to be made, so I'm saying cheerio to all those delicious Pret toasties and Itsu sushi boxes and tucking into this delicious dish all week.
Fish is constantly on my plate at the moment. In the run up to my little holiday to Lisbon in September, I'm trying to make an extra effort to eat healthier and do more exercise - bring on that bikini bod! This recipe is the first dinner I made after I decided it was time to make a change and it's honestly one of my absolute favourites now.
There's nothing more comforting than knowing that a delicious breakfast is waiting for you, just yards from your office. Urban Tea Rooms, which you can find on Kingly Street, Soho has been a favourite of my fellow BBHers and mine for as long as I can remember.
There is nothing I crave more on a hangover than a burger (or any meat really, but mostly burger). And after a particularly boozy Thursday night, I needed something pretty exceptional to help me out of my nasty hangover funk. After searching the internet for places that weren't going to be rammed on a Friday lunch time, we found this little Hawaiian place, Kua 'Aina tucked away on Carnaby Street.
It's always great when you find a new haunt to chill out in with your friends and our new obsession this spring has been a recently opened bar, located in the heart of Kilburn - the Ironworks. Run by some of the friendliest staff in the North West (even the bouncers will flash you a grin), this is my new favourite place for a chilled out pint.
I am taking full credit for this, guys - I have accidentally created a masterpiece on a plate.This recipe may sound a little weird, but I promise you, it's delicious! I pretty much went into Sainsbury's, chucked everything I fancied into my basket, cooked it all up and this was the result. All hail me, the domestic goddess.
We all love a bit of meat and mashed potato, am I right? Arguably the ultimate comfort food, you'll find it in almost every pub in Britain. So when I spotted Mother Mash from my office window - a restaurant devoted to sausages, pies and mash, I couldn't help but get curious and decided to try them for dinner earlier this week.
You know the drill, it's pay day and that old can of soup sat in your drawer just isn't doing it for you. But you're also poor and don't want to blow a week's spending money on one meal (regardless of how much you're craving a plate of Dim Sum from Ping Pong), well fear not, lunch time lovers, Flat Planet is here to save us all.
Okay, I just want to start this off by stating that I am a massive meat freak. Chicken, pork, beef, duck, even fish – you name it, I’m guaranteed to like it. So when I heard about Flat Iron and its rumoured near perfect steak for just £10, I knew I’d have to try it out.
Yes, I know this is a very bold claim, but in my humble opinion - it is a true one. Living in London, it's unlikely that you will ever be too far from a burger joint, all of them trying to ensure that they're offering the juiciest, most flavourful hunks of meat, toppings and buns than the rest. But for me, only Honest have gotten the balance perfect.
It's that time of year again, when a delicious plethora of food and drink descend on Dalston Yard, able to satisfy all of your culinary needs. Street Feast is every food lover's dream, a night market running from 1st May - 26th September on Fridays and Saturdays, FREE before 7pm (£3 after).
Having been there a few times now, The Black Lion is fast becoming one of my favourite pubs and being in such a lovely area as West Hampstead, it's always a treat wandering around the charity shops afterwards looking for some bargains.
One of my favourite places to enjoy lunch in London these days has to be Pizza Pilgrims. There are two lovely little restaurants nestled around Soho; one in the majestic Kingly Court, just off Carnaby Street and the other on the corner of Dean Street.
Now that the weather is getting chillier and the office air con is still raging like it’s mid-summer, I have been tucking into piping hot bowls of soup and a couple of rye crackers with butter to warm me up at lunch time.
