Absolutely delicious Peruvian cuisine in central London: Restaurant Coya Mayfair (2. February 2020)

Absolutely delicious Peruvian cuisine in central London: Restaurant Coya Mayfair (2. February 2020)

Of course I’m always a bit skeptical about food from Latin America when it’s served in Europe but given I haven’t actually been to Peru, I cannot really say if it is good or not – but I can say if I liked it or not. Now, the “crocantes con guacamole (corn tortillas, shrimp crackers, […]

Overrated French food experience: Restaurant Balthazar (1. February 2020)

Overrated French food experience: Restaurant Balthazar (1. February 2020)

I had been recommended the Balthazar a couple of times before and finally managed to pay it a visit. First word which comes to my mind is ‘overrated’. It is a traditional French brasserie and in that aspect it isn’t all that bad. However, it is rather loud, the tables are super close to each […]

An amazing place for great meat: Restaurant Hawksmoor Spitalfields (1. February 2020)

An amazing place for great meat: Restaurant Hawksmoor Spitalfields (1. February 2020)

There is one thing I really dislike about London – the fact that you have to book almost every restaurant ages in advance. Luckily, I was able to find something which was appealing and had availability this time on the first try. The Hawksmoor Spitalfields is a very traditional location which serves great different meat […]

Lovely dinner at No. 33 of the World’s 50 Best: Restaurant Lyle’s (31. January 2020)

Lovely dinner at No. 33 of the World’s 50 Best: Restaurant Lyle’s (31. January 2020)

The Restaurant Lyle’s is No. 33 on the List of the World’s 50 Best – and while I get that it’s a good place, I’m not sure I’d sign the No. 33. First of all, given my flight was slightly delayed, I tried to reach the restaurant over the phone which turned out to be […]

Perfect for a lazy afternoon with a glass of wine: Humble Grape Wine Bar Liverpool Street (5. November 2019)

Perfect for a lazy afternoon with a glass of wine: Humble Grape Wine Bar Liverpool Street (5. November 2019)

I found the Humble Grape Wine Bar more by accident than anything else but it is definitely a place I can highly recommend. It is a rather small location which is really set up like a wine bar in all aspects – be it interior decoration, be it the menu itself (which offers pretty much […]

Perfect day trip lunch at No. 27 of the world: Restaurant The Clove Club (31. October 2019)

How does the perfect day look like? Fly to London in the morning, have lunch at No. 27 of the world, The Clove Club, and fly back in the evening. That was my program for the day! Definitely something you can and should do. Visiting The Clove Club for lunch is an absolutely memorable experience. […]

Typical airport food – not worth trying: Restaurant The City (9. May 2019)

Typical airport food – not worth trying: Restaurant The City (9. May 2019)

It is surprising how much of a difference competition makes. The City is one of two restaurants in the London City airport (LCY) and, therefore, one of the choices you have to pick when you decide to eat something at LCY. There was a little queue so you had to wait for about 10 to […]

Delicious but expensive lunch experience: Restaurant Chiltern Firehouse (9. May 2019)

More than four years ago, when the Chiltern Firehouse had just opened up, was the last time I paid this place a visit. And it was about time to do so again. You still have to make sure you book in advance as the place was fully booked even at 2pm when we went for […]
