I would say 2019 has been a year of discoveries when it comes to restaurants. I was lucky enough to eat at lots of new halal restaurants that have only opened this year. Although this list is not exhaustive, these are some of the best halal restaurants of 2019 that I’ve eaten at. Some are oldies but were worth visiting again!
Dubai is one of THE most family friendly destinations on the planet and is fast becoming a gastronomical paradise. I’ve chosen my top five family friendly restaurants in Dubai where I really enjoyed the food alongside the children.
It’s been a while since I did a restaurant review but I felt The Great Chase was really worthy of a write-up. Not because it’s amazing but because it’s so different! The Great Chase is a charming, cosy restaurant in Islington High street. What makes […]
Going for breakfast is becoming one of my favourite things to do much to the detriment of my waistline. However if you’re going out for breakfast you may as well make it special. Sistered with The Ivy, the Ivy Cafe Wimbledon describes itself as a modern […]
This week I went to learn all about coffee brewing at Coffee Island. Coffee Island is a Greek coffee chain which has its only London branch in Upper Saint Martin’s Lane, just behind Leicester Square station. Coffee Island is not like any other coffee shop I’ve […]
When you’re meeting a friend from the opposite side of London, it needs to be special. And what is more special than Yotam Ottolenghi’s restaurants? Not much else is the answer! Nopi is tucked away on Warwick Street in Soho very near to Liberty. We arrived in […]
After many unsuccessful attempts I finally made it to Royal Nawaab for an evening of overeating. After an hours drive (yes it took a whole hour) I parked up after seeing my friends queuing up outside. I was running a bit late so missed out on […]
An overdue night out with a friend bought us to Nipa Thai for the first time. It’s always fun trying Thai restaurants as most have something unique about them.
It’s been a while since I’ve eaten somewhere worth reviewing. A relatively new addition to the Indian restaurant scene, Dishoom has really made its mark. There are hundreds of Indian restaurants in London so why does Dishoom always have queues outside? That’s for every branch […]
As London goes gourmet burger crazy Meat Rack is the most recent addition located in Earlsfield. Seems like every time we want to go out and eat as a family we end up in a burger joint. Not that I’m complaining mind you, I love a burger more […]
Although I live south of the river Thames it’s seldom I ever need to visit Croydon. Pictures of relatively new restaurant Yumn Brasserie’s burgers enticed me into making the not so long journey to South Croydon, a family birthday being the perfect excuse. So we […]
On Friday I met up with my besties for a Chinese. No ordinary Chinese, Maximini is Jimmy Choo’s culinary offering in Bayswater. When we arrived, we realised it’s not exactly Novikov or fine dining as we were expecting. However we sat down and ordered our food as […]
I always get excited when a local restaurant opens that isn’t Italian or Indian, as is usually the case near where I live. Tas opened last year and serves authentic Turkish cuisine, and the best bit — it has a real clay oven/tandoor call it […]
On Monday I went along to Fatburger’s prelaunch event organised by the good people behind the Facebook group The Best Halal Burger In The World . Fatburger is an American hamburger chain with branches across the world including Pakistan and the Middle East, and now their […]
Tiger Lily is a beautiful restaurant tucked away on a quiet side road off the A4 in Osterley. I’ve been here many times but never got round to writing a review! It’s a great place for a romantic night out or a catch up with […]
Finally I made it to Stax Diner for a cousin’s birthday. Located in the ever so cute Kingly Court off Carnaby Street, Stax is an American style burger place. I’d heard a lot about it over social media and on tv program ‘Curious Foodie’, so […]
Feng Shang Princess is a Chinese restaurant with a difference. It’s on a boat! Yes that’s right a floating boat on the Cumberland Basin in Primrose Hill, just by London Zoo. The setting is certainly different but once your inside it’s easy to forget you’re in […]
We stumbled upon this Lebanese restaurant after an afternoon at the Natural History Museum and festive ice skating. It was Halloween and we had five kids in tow, two vegetarians and one on the four hour body diet. So finding somewhere to accomadate all dietary […]
Update: After speaking with Atul Kochhar he informed me he is no longer affiliated with Simply India. When I ate there it was marketed as his restaurant. On our last night in Mauritius we wanted to go out with a bang so decided to eat at […]
