Food

I’m not really into the whole snapping photos with a flash whilst people are trying to enjoy their meals. However I love to eat out in the City and have been to some pretty nice places. I try not to necessarily ‘review’ But I will point out the good, the bad and the definitely worth going back too!

La Scala of Beverly Hills

A resounding Hollywood favourite for the Classic chopped salad! So many celebs have snapped and tagged this place on Instagram, I was keen to go and see what the fuss is about but wasn’t sure we’d get a table without a reservation. After all the Oscars stress it was nice to have a little afternoon out with Laura schmoozing round the streets of Beverly Hills acting fabulous. I was so…

Umami Burger, Santa Monica

Trying to pick ourselves up from Sunday’s disappointment, we roadtripped out of Hollywood to Santa Monica to meet the gang for a burger.

So after reading fab reviews and getting few verbal recommendations I promised myself next time I…

I managed to convince the family to come and meet me at 7:30pm and we decided to check it out!┬áRoxie are a South African team that wanted to provide Londoners with decent affordable steak.…

Sunday Roast | The Garrison

There’s nothing more I enjoy that a delicious roast dinner on a Sunday. Most weekends my Mum cooks one, but this particular weekend my parents were away so I met Jonelle at Borough Market for dinner and drinks. The obvious choice is ‘Roast’ but I fancied somewhere a little more cosy. I did my usual and looked up best places for a Sunday dinner on FourSquare and The Garrison came…
