HEARTY BRITISH FAYRE AT HOLBORN DINING ROOM

Mr Flavour has been spending a lot of time on the internet recently. He sits there quietly, phone in hand, with his mouth agape, drooling as he ogles pictures of tasty little beauties. I’m talking of course about Calum Franklin’s magnificent pies, which grace the pages of Instagram like the pastry equivalent of really, really,…

A RETURN TO INDULGENCE AT RITORNO

January eh? What a load of rubbish! Depleted bank accounts, Baltic temperatures and a desperate battle to shift the excess poundage which magically appeared over the festive season. Panicked by tumultuous events at Parliament and news of a 97-year-old man terrorising the British highways, we felt compelled to cheer ourselves up with some decadence. There’s…

A BITE-SIZED TALE OF BRIGADIERS

As a food loving couple based in London, we find ourselves overwhelmed with choice and busy with indulgence where restaurants are concerned. It’s been months since we ate at Brigadiers and although their menu has changed, we felt obliged to share tales of our experience at this heavenly restaurant. Regular readers of our blog will…

THE SWEETEST FINALE AT BIRD OF SMITHFIELD

Do you favour the flavour of a savoury starter, or make a beeline for the main course? Either way, you’ll need to leave room for dessert at Bird of Smithfield this season. Their spring menu has been graced with four delectable desserts that will make you want to order back to front. We were lucky…

TASTY TAPAS AT BOQUERIA

Look at the size of that Paella! This was meant to be a portion for 3 people but I reckon those enormous Langoustines could satisfy all of Brixton by themselves. We joined a group of friends at Boqueria to celebrate a birthday in the best way possible; namely consuming our bodyweight in delicious Tapas. We…

RAGU AND ROMANCE AT ROSSOPOMODORO

As we all know, once a year each February comes a day when couples celebrate their love. Their love of Pizza that is! Yes, Friday 09th February is National Pizza day and ever the romantic, Mr Flavour whisked me away from work for an evening of exchanging sweet nothings at our favourite Italian chain restaurant,…

CHART A COURSE TO THE SAIL LOFT

Life as a London Venue finder is certainly busy, but who says work can’t be fun? Mr Flavour and I do love a good research trip and decided to check out some riverside spots. With the chilly winter breeze nipping at our noses, we hopped on a boat to Greenwich for an afternoon of discovery…

GREAT TIMES AT GREENWOOD

Fridays generally mean dressing down and an early finish for most Londoners. In the world of Mr & Mrs Flavour Friday means work, work, work. Fortunately, our work is all about discovering London’s coolest venues. So, I headed to Victoria for a fact-finding client lunch at the majestic Greenwood. This mega-venue dwells within the Nova…

DISHOOM DELIGHTS US ONCE AGAIN

It was another beautiful August day in London and I was perched at Regent’s canal, sipping chilled Domaine De Cabrials as the barges gently slipped by. My delicious daydream was brought to an abrupt end by a text from Mr. Flavour: “Almost back from Brighton, eaten nothing but chips for last 3 days. Need proper…

LOW & SLOW SOUTHERN STYLE. Dukes Brew and Que.

Mr. and Mrs. Flavour take their taste buds down South at their favourite American barbecue restaurant. I’d just returned from a business trip to New York and was feeling sleepy, sweaty and seriously hungry. Mrs. Flavour sure knows how to push the right buttons, suggesting we forgo the hassle of a home cooked meal and…
