Bravo ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป @panzerottoblues . Iโ€™ve got to say this was honestly one of the tastiest, most delicious โ€˜food to goโ€™ lunches Iโ€™ve eaten in a long time. Packed full of flavour - I went for a slight menu twist: โ€˜Panz Jungle with chickenโ€™ + [ Mozzarella, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, goats cheese, aubergines, chilli flakes, balsamic vinegar glaze, black pepper ] . Get down to either the #tootingmarket or #greenwichmarket locations for yummy goodness ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค
Had such at fun time last week at the @fivepointsbrew Beer Tasting in Hackney . We got to sample a variety of craft beers which were all super tasty. Five Points are one of my favourite breweries as they regularly collaborate with other craft breweries to create unique beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ
If youโ€™re feeling festive like I am then a trip down to @byronhamburgers to sample their Christmas Menu will make you even more so ๐ŸŽ„ . The โ€˜cheesemas set menuโ€™ for ยฃ15 is great value and tasty as hell ๐Ÿง€ . My favourites were the Mac and Cheese Balls which have a buffalo glaze, Byron cheese sauce, bacon and spring onions ๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿง€ . Check out the full menu in my photos ๐Ÿ˜โคต๏ธ
Throwback to last week in #manchester @mackiemayor . Awesome cocktail creation from - I drank honestly the best espresso martini Iโ€™ve ever had โ˜•๏ธ I also tasted this delightful Christmassy twist on a classic negroni โ€˜called the Rooibos Negroni ft Rooibos tea ๐Ÿฅƒ
@cafemonico is one of those under the radar venues in the London in the heart of the city #shaftesburyavenue . Itโ€™s a perfect date location due to its romantic ambiance. Theyโ€™ve really nailed the menu too, the sea bass was unbelievable ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ 
Throwing it back to this yummy whopper of a kebab from @germandonerkebabuk ๐ŸŒฏ . The food is super tasty, fast and convenient ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป . I visited their #islington location opposite Angel tube station. You can find all their great locations on their website โค๏ธ check em out ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป . #londonkebabs #foodinlondon #meateater
Iโ€™ve got to say @macandwild is now up there with one of my favourite #londonrestaurants ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜ what a fantastic evening on Friday! . It really is meat and wine heaven ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿท and their โ€˜cutsโ€™ are totally mouth watering ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค . Check out what we ate below (yes I wasnโ€™t on my own eating all of this ๐Ÿ˜‚) โคต๏ธ [ Tomahawk steak heavily salted for melt in your mouth flavour Venison chateaubriand Scotch eggs Haggis Balls Mac & Cheese Cocktails ]
Had a lovely evening and experience at the new #towerbridge @vapianouk site ๐Ÿค— . Got dough flipping with the friendly staff on site ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• . Itโ€™s such a well designed space & perfect for an awesome meal out with a group of friends ๐Ÿฅณ . Quality pasta, pizza, wine....what more could you want? ๐Ÿคค
Quick pit stop at lunch to @honipoke in Soho ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . Super nutritious poke bowls, quickly becoming one of my fast food faves in London Town ๐Ÿฅฆ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฑ . [ First choose your base....๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป โ€ข I opted for a 50/50 mix of sushi rice and veg slaw Next choose the protein ๐Ÿ˜› โ€ข I went for another mix of tuna and Salmon Then add the sides ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฅฆ โ€ข Edamame, Pineapple, Coriander, Spring onions, Ginger, Chilli, Seaweed salad, Avocado, Kimchi Finally, get saucy ๐Ÿ”ฅ โ€ข Soy sauce all the way ๐Ÿค“ . Re hydrated with a charcoal lemonade ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฅค ]
Saturday means only one thing ๐Ÿ˜Ž....#brunch with pals @crispin_e1 ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿž๐Ÿฅž . I was super impressed with the carefully crafted & concise menu they had on offer . Often restaurants offer too many dishes in my opinion, this often confuses the consumer and makes choosing hard work. Instead, Crispin choose a handful of dishes and focus on doing them exceptionally well ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป . Check out what we ate below โ†˜๏ธ my favourite was the Daal dish ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ [ Waffles, vanilla ice cream, cinnamon baked apple, crumble . Parmesan scrambled eggs, chorizo, spring onion, sourdough . Coconut daal, poached egg, chappati, pumpkin, green sauce . Pickle house Bloody Mary & Flat white courtesy of @assemblyroast ]
I visited the brand new on Friday night for some unique โ€˜Hot Konesโ€™ . Such a unique fast food experience, Koox have done an amazing job of breaking the mould with these interesting filled kones ๐Ÿฆ - (minus the ice cream) . The hot kones are made from rye flour and buckwheat flour. My favourite was the chicken and mushroom ๐Ÿ–ค . Recipe below โ†˜๏ธ . [rye flour , buckweat flour, butter, hazelnut, vinegar, lemon, egg, chicken, mushroom & hollandaise foam]
Was lucky enough to check out the new @elan_cafe earlier this week at their new @theofficialselfridges location in the heart of London ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง . Check out my pics โคต๏ธ of their superb coffee, cakes and a yummy salad brunch which all hit the spot ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿปโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ—
I tucked in to โ€˜The original German Doner Kebabโ€™ @germandonerkebabuk tonight opposite Angel tube #islington . A perfect location for a premium kebab thatโ€™s a step up from the norm ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿคค . Check out the action shot ๐Ÿ“ธ
Had a wonderful evening and experience at @temperlondon yesterday evening - big thanks to @adwaiz ๐Ÿ˜ . We saw a #meaty masterclass from the experts who shared amazing insight into how they produce high quality meat by partnering with specific farms to ensure quality and sustainability ๐Ÿ– . Itโ€™s tucked away down an alley in a truly great spot in the heart of the city [๐Ÿš‡ Bank Station ] which makes it even more exclusive ๐Ÿ”ฅ #temperlondon
A box of @pattyandbun goodies ๐Ÿ˜ @theprincelondon . The Smokey Robinson burger hitting the spot today ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป . #burgerheaven #pattylove #londonburger #bestburger
Nothing like a cheese and tomato croissant to start the day ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿง€ #londonbreakfast . Sippinโ€™ coffee ready to head to #manchester for the Manchester Coffee Festival @cupnorth โ˜•๏ธ
I stumbled across a narrow fronted Japanese restaurant called Sushi Masa as I was walking along Walm Lane yesterday (Willesden Green Station) - a must visit ๐Ÿ™ƒ . @sushi_masa_willesden . I was so impressed with the menu but found it difficult to decide so thankfully their helpful staff were there to advise ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€ . Swipe left to check out what I ate and drank ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿบ .
