A WHALE OF A TIME AT BELUGA

Wow, what a summer we’re having here in Malaga! The sun’s hat is well and truly on, as are our facemasks. As a result, us honorary Malagueños are sweating like the U.S Bureau of Medical Services each time Trump advocates using hydroxychloroquine. While we continue to exercise strict Covid precautions, sitting down for a meal…

A SENSATIONAL SUPPER AT THE STAY INN

We’re loving lockdown….said nobody, ever! On the bright side, we now know how to do bicycle crunches and Russian twists (note – not a cocktail). We’ve also developed a new fondness for housework, meaning the 3 second rule has been extended to 3 minutes for any food dropped onto our pristine kitchen floor. Despite restricted…

DUST OFF YOUR APPETITES FOR COAL OFFICE

We remember the days when Kings Cross was a pretty sketchy area. Only the bravest, drunkest and most debauched would venture there seeking sinful pleasures. Mrs Flavour and I recently took a staggered walk down memory lane. As the Saturday afternoon prosecco bathed our senses, we headed to the recently reinvigorated and rather snazzy Coal…

NEW SPRING FLAVOURS AT BRASSERIE BLANC

Brasserie Blanc recently launched their new spring menu and we were lucky enough to be invited to their Threadneedle Street branch to sample it for ourselves. Created by the genius minds of Raymond Blanc and the Chef team led by Clive Fretwell, this menu marries French classics with Global dishes inspired by Monsieur Blanc’s travels….

BEAUTIFUL BRUNCH AT BROADLEAF

Who can remember a time before the invention of the bottomless brunch concept? Only a few short years ago were we unaware of the blissful marriage between relaxed weekend dining and unlimited drinks to wash down delicious food. Nowadays, many of London’s top venues offer a bottomless brunch menu and Broadleaf bar and restaurant stands…

A MAJESTIC LUNCH AT AMETSA

Who doesn’t love January, eh? Miserable weather, maxed-out credit cards and clothes which have magically tightened in conjunction with recent festive excess. London was gripped by a dry Jan juice cleanse frenzy but Mrs Flavour and I were on a mission of indulgence. After all, we were celebrating her birthday! We love the winter months,…

OPENING OF THE WEEK. THE ALLEGORY, SHOREDITCH

We were lucky enough to get an invite to the opening of The Allegory on Worship Street, so we brought along a few close friends to share the experience. We’re tipping this one for greatness! We sipped an array of delicious cocktails whilst picking at a selection of sharing boards. The smoky baba ghanoush from…

WE FOUND NIRVANA AT GYMKHANA

We are putting it out there early: Gymkhana is without doubt the best restaurant we’ve eaten at this year! Mrs. Flavour and I had heard great things about this Mayfair ensconced eatery and could think of no better place to celebrate our fourth year of wedded bliss. Indian cuisine seldom fails to light our fires…

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…

REACHING FOR MORE BEERS AT LONG ARM PUB AND BREWERY

  Following a delightfully boozy dinner party with friends on Friday night, Mrs. Flavour and I awoke with more than a hint of a hangover each. Fortunately, there’s a hot new venue just down the road and I can’t think of a better pick me up than several pints of tank fresh beer and a…

WET OR DRY? MY OH MY! Bodeans

  So, Bodean’s have decided to risk mixing up their much-loved menu, opting for a new pick-n-mix formula. I’ve got mixed emotions and mixed opinions. We rocked up at Bodean’s Old Street around 7:30pm on a Wednesday. Our charming hostess prepped the last available table for us, whilst I impressed the Mrs. with my extensive…

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…
