    Restaurant Story | Story, London Bridge

    Story is a restaurant where chef Tom Sellers has "created a personal journey through food". I love this sentiment, as you can probably imagine, so couldn't wait to try it on Friday. After lighting our candle, an array of pre-story time snacks arrived quicker than we could blink. Once thoroughly warmed up, the accompaniments to our candle arrived - made of beef dripping, the signature dish was definitely a hit along with the smokey fresh bread...

    Cay Tre | Cây Tre, Soho

    The lovely Miss R's special day this week could only mean one thing: party punch. And by party punch, I mean PUNCH, the kind you expect out of a plastic bucket on a Thai beach during a full moon party where you've lost your wallet and had your foot peed on by a lad who can't find his way to the ocean.

Texturally speaking, the stuffed lotus flower was excellent. And everyone else assures me that all the dishes were tasty, particularly the soup, prawns, lobster and Peking duck. Damn them.

    The Parlour | The Parlour, Canary Wharf

    The CG was in search of ice sculptures, while his mum and I were in search of warmth. When did winter decide to crank it up (or down) a notch? We arrived at The Parlour after 2pm on Sunday, and the place was heaving. I really liked the fit outs at The Folly and Drift Bar, so it was no surprise after I gushed about how nice the place looked and we hopped onto some stools to find out that The Parlour was part of the same group...
