Woodwards Farm | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | Real Food Market, Belvedere Rd, Southbank, SE1 8XX
The full works of a juicy burger. Pretty happy they ran out of buns, more filling for me!

Brogans | £££££ | ★★★☆☆ | Havelock Square, Swindon
Not everything is doom and gloom in Swindon! Nice little cafe with generous portions. Good tea. Good food. And you don’t come out smelling like oil.

Dixie Union | £££££ | ★★★★★ | Street Food Union, Rupert St, Soho, W1D 6DR
Pulled pork in a brioche bun with chili sauce, gravy and slaw. Eating literally does not get messier or better than this.

Tayyabs | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 83-89 Fieldgate St, Whitechapel, E1 1JU
As you may be aware, I’m not normally a fan of sweet things. But this peshwari naan was so good. Decided it needed it’s own image.

Tayyabs | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 83-89 Fieldgate St, Whitechapel, E1 1JU
The lamb in the dhal gosht was so tender and fell apart and everything was so perfectly spiced. And so cheap (just ignore the service). I’m coming here more often.

Restaurant Story | £££££ | ★★★★★ | 201 Tooley St, London Bridge, SE1 2UE
And these were just the amuse bouches. How. The crispy cod skin. The savoury oreo (squid ink) biscuit. The sea salt stuffed radish. (!)

God. Help. Me. This was delicious. The beef dripping candle was ingenious. The foie gras. The lamb. The scallops. I even wiped the dessert plates clean - which for me, is unusual! Menu here.

Burger and Lobster | £££££ | ★★★☆☆ | 36 Dean St, Soho, W1D 4PS
I’m glad I’ve finally ticked this off the list. Unfortunately the lobster was a bit overcooked and rubbery. That garlic sauce was just… Delish. But not worth £20 alone…

Grain Store | £££££ | ★★★☆☆ | Granary Square, 1-3 Stable St, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AB
Again, nice (especially the Korean slaw!) but £13.50… You could almost get 3 of these delicious things for that!

Grain Store | £££££ | ★★★☆☆ | Granary Square, 1-3 Stable St, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AB
A nice croque madame, but still not a massive fan of this kind of food i.e. ham and cheese toastie. Even if you put an egg on top.

The Arts Theatre Club | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 50 Frith St, Soho, W1D 4SQ
My new favourite. Delicious cocktails in teapots (yes, I know but still). Great music. Small but vibrant atmosphere. A hidden soho gem.

The Brockley Mess | £££££ | ★★★☆☆ | 325 Brockley Rd, Brockley, SE4 2QZ
A DIY breakfast burrito. Pretty yummy although a burrito form for greedy me would have been easier to chomp down on.
0
Garlic and Shots | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 14 Frith St, Soho, W1D 4RD
Not for the faint-hearted. Cheerfully cheap drinks and those garlic shots will certainly wake you up!

Opium | £££££ | ★★★★☆ | 15-16 Gerrard St, China Town, W1D 6JA
The Jade door. Deliciously strong cocktails. Booking is highly advisable.
