    Vegan Menu At City Spice Indian Restaurant, Brick Lane || Food & Drink

    May 10, 2019 FrannyMac

    Like many people, over the last year or so I’ve been trying to cut down my intake of meat and fish. So much so, minus the odd occasion that it can’t be avoided, I class myself as being a pescatarian. In fact, for most days of the week, I try and eat a vegan diet. Thankfully, due to so many companies bringing out vegan products and options it feels like there’s always some new, animal-friendly, treat to try. (I mean,…

    Bill’s Restaurant Pre-Theatre Set Menu, Covent Garden || Food & Drink

    July 30, 2018 FrannyMac

    Covent Garden is one of those places that always surprises me. I feel like I’ve paid a visit around once a month since I began living in London and almost everytime I’ve spotted something new. Be that a new bar or restaurant, a boutique to get lost in or an interesting piece of art. (Christmas time here is my favourite for this very reason!) Take, for example, St Martin’s Courtyard. Somewhere that, if you didn’t take the right turn you may well…

    The Stable, Kew Bridge – New Menu, May 2018 || Food & Drink

    June 25, 2018 FrannyMac

    If you read my “5 Happy Things” from April, I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at The Stable‘s newest menu. I’m already a huge fan of The Stable and can often be found at their Kew Bridge branch on a Sunday afternoon. (Normally contemplating if I can justify both garlic bread and pizza, to be honest. I just love garlic bread okay?!) I’ve posted about one of these trips from last summer when I had my camera with and got a little snap…

    The Royal China Restaurant, Queensway || Food & Drink

    After our last trip to The Golden Dragon at Bang Bang Oriental, Sophie and I once again found ourselves catching up over Chinese food. As we’re both huge fans of Asian cuisine, we were looking forward to splitting some seafood dishes and, in general, just sampling various delights from the menu. So with that in mind, here’s what we thought to our meal at The Royal China Queensway.

    Pasta & Prosecco at Vapiano London Bankside || Food & Drink

    April 11, 2018 FrannyMac

    Vapiano was actually one of the first restaurants I ever visited in London. I’d come down to visit with my parents and my dad mentioned the Great Portland Street branch. He’d been to with a colleague and thought we’d enjoy as we all love Italian food. Ever since that evening, it’s become my go-to after a day of shopping in Oxford Street. (Although, that has become an increasingly rare thing for me to do after discovering Westfield to be less stressful).…

    Golden Dragon Restaurant at Bang Bang Oriental, Colindale || Food

    If there’s one type of cuisine that I love but hardly ever get to eat, it’s Chinese. I really don’t know why I don’t go out for Chinese too often, maybe just that going to China Town overwhelms me with choices and locally I haven’t found anywhere yet. So with that in mind when my good friend and blogger babe Sophie asked if I wanted to check out the Golden Dragon Restaurant at Bang Bang Oriental in Colindale, of course,…

    Hometown Tourist #3 – Cheese, Catch-ups & Camden || London

    October 25, 2017 FrannyMac

    I swear, the last “Hometown Tourist” post I did will have had pretty much the same introduction. At the time I wrote the first one I was regularly heading out with friends, mostly from outside of London and thought it would be a great chance to write about our touristy adventures. However, circumstances change and other than a few fleeting visits – I’ve hardly had a chance to see said friends. Even if we do text every day. So on…

    It’s no secret that I love food. I mean, 99% of the time that I’m not eating I’m thinking about what to eat next. So when my good friend Laura asked if I’d like to be her plus one to “Off The Wall and Onto The Plate” a tasting menu by Pedro Passinhas at Graham and Brown‘s House Of Wallpaper pop up. Well, I was excited to say the least. A chance to catch up while enjoying food from a…

    Patara – Fine Thai Cuisine, Wimbledon || Restaurant Review

    August 25, 2017 FrannyMac

    I absolutely adore Thai food, in fact, I eat some form of Thai inspired meal at least once a week. From creamy green curries to a hearty pad thai, it doesn’t get much better for me. So, when I was frequenting my old haunts in Wimbledon and saw that one of my favourite Thai restaurants, Patara, had opened I was excited to try it out. So last week, I hopped on the district line after work to try it out.…
