PINOCCHIO-THEMED AFTERNOON TEA BRINGS THE HOUSE DOWN

We’d like to claim to be a mature, straight laced couple. However, telling such lies would land us with noses as long as our favourite fairytale Puppet/Boy. The National Theatre is currently hosting Dennis Kelly’s production of Pinocchio and to mark the event, House Restaurant is offering a Hi-Diddle-Dee-Tea. This Pinocchio themed afternoon tea is…

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,…

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,…

GREAT BITES AT BURDOCK

Christmas may be just around the corner, but there’s still plenty of work to tend to before hanging up the stockings and putting the turkey in the oven. Great events need great pictures and I’d arranged to meet our friend and photographer extraordinaire Vojtech from Photo VB to discuss our 2018 events calendar. We agreed…

A CHEEKY NIBBLE AT CEVICHE

We love Ceviche at Old Street. In the wake of post work drinks, we’re frequently drawn through their door, magnetised by the munchies and craving a quick bite of Peruvian fare on the way home. There’s always a warm welcome and if we’re lucky, a seat at their open kitchen bar. Perched on high stools,…

HEARTY MEXICAN BRUNCHING AT CORAZON

Oh the weather outside was frightful, but the Tacos were so delightful. I was busy contemplating ways to escape an afternoon of Christmas shopping in the wintry West End when Mrs Flavour suggested we combine it with a trip to Mexican eatery Corazón. I tossed on my Poncho and Sombrero and we were out the…

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…

THE 5 BEST AMERICAN THEMED RESTAURANTS IN EAST LONDON

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Americophiles will soon be seeking a feast that would fill the Grand Canyon. However, we’re not all crazy ‘bout Cranberry sauce or peachy-keen for Pumpkin Pie. The good ole US of A has bestowed plenty of awesome alternatives:  Think pulled pork, barbecue ribs, crispy wings and juicy slow cooked…
