Maze by Gordon Ramsay – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Maze by Gordon Ramsay – review | | Category: Modern, Reviews | Tags :

I had stopped writing negative reviews but because of our experience at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze, I just had to write this negative review. Having heard so much about the man, I wanted to see if his food lived up to his reputation. Unfortunately, it didn’t! We had the 4-course tasting... more

Marco Pierre White Steak and Alehouse – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Marco Pierre White Steak and Alehouse – review | | Category: British, Reviews | Tags :

We only know MPW because of his Knorr commercials. We had the 3-course menu with a bellini for £25. For the app, I chose potted duck and this was a huge portion. It came with a thin slice of toast. The duck was quite flavourful but it was huge! Hubby... more

This was our first meal during our recent trip to London and it was also the best. Granted, the menu wasn’t as sophisticated as that of Roux at the Landau, but we enjoyed our meal there immensely as we could relax and enjoyed our evening. (Roux was a bit too... more

Is there any reason to travel to Elephant and Castle as a tourist in London? You betcha! It’s Dragon Castle that’s the main draw here. Their dim sum was divine! We wanted to explore new neighborhoods and I had found on Yelp that there’s good dim sum to be had at... more

Arirang London – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Arirang London – review | | Category: Korean, Reviews | Tags : ,

One of the reasons why we travel so often to London is in search of good Korean food. Our quest may have ended at Arirang, possibly the best Korean food that I’ve ever tasted in London. The location belies the quality of the food – just off Oxford Street and... more

Sadaf – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Sadaf – review | | Category: Persian, Reviews | Tags : ,

From the street, this resto looked busy with only locals so we couldn’t wait to try it. We had booked a table thru Toptable.com but it was unnecessary even though it was Saturday night at 7:30pm. We arrived at 7:30pm and the waiter I talked to was a bit confused... more

Baozi Inn – review

I had searched on Yelp for some szechuan food and stumbled upon this place. Very communistic decor The namesake baozi or steamed bun. We just had to try one and it was humungoid! Twice the size of a normal steamed bun. The filling was pork and it was delicious. Too... more

We got a 50% deal from Toptable and couldn’t resist since we seemed to have a Thai period right now. I ordered the Thai iced tea which was very colorful with the sweet condensed milk forming a white cloud in the sea of orangeness. It was good but a bit... more

Addie’s Thai cafe – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Addie’s Thai cafe – review | | Category: Reviews, Thai | Tags : ,

Addie’s Thai has good reviews on Yelp and as it’s near our hotel on Earl’s Court Road, we thought that we’d try it out. Plus, the raw shrimp papaya salad sounded absolutely yummy! Raw shrimp papaya salad was divine! Salty taste from the fish sauce and sourness from the lime... more

We were here on Valentine’s Day and we were looking forward to trying the Chef’s menu (9 courses for only £25) after reading such good reviews about it but they only had the Valentine’s special. Even though we didn’t get to try the black risotto, what we had was amazing!... more
