Are Jew kidding me? No I am not. I totally have found the best deli in town for Jewish classics including this mega Reuben sandwich made of salt beef, pastrami, mustard, russian dressing and cheese @montys_deli ๐Ÿ˜ in @markethalls Victoria. Total Jewphoriaa!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜…
*Free Croissant and Coffee Alert* Sometimes in life, we dont realise how much we want something until we have tried it. And when we do, we wonder why it never existed before๐Ÿค” And one such delight I have come across is a MINCE PIE CROISSANT from @paul_bakeryuk Say whaaaat?! Yes ๐Ÿ˜ . . Imagine an all buttery croissant stuffed with a rich n citrusy mince mix. Sticky, gooey deliciousness encased in a light pastry. What's not to like? ๐Ÿ˜ They have 3 different flavours to pick from- the Classic, Apricot n Almond and the Blueberry n Red Fruit. . . And you can get one tomorrow for FREE! There will be a Paul's car going through Covent Garden, Spitalfields and South Kensington and it will be handing these amazing croissants for free! But if you do miss it, no worries. If you buy one of these croissants (worth ยฃ1.95) from any of the @paul_bakeryuk stores between the 20th and 30th of November, you get a free coffee or tea๐Ÿ‘Œ So you've really not got a reason to mincepie it out๐Ÿ˜…
U-DONt even need to go to Japan to get that fix of soft, fresh made udon- go to @koyalondon in @markethalls Victoria instead๐Ÿ˜ They have a range of amazing hot and cold udons which are so delicious and so authentic๐Ÿ‘Œ . . Here I have the Prawn Katsu, the Pork Miso and the Cumin Lamb udons. I found them all to be delightful. Easy to slurp noodles, earthy broths. And such a nice change from the usual pasta and noodles dishes. Surprisingly lighter I think. So, which of these three would you pick? Or maybe UDont have to pick- just get them all๐Ÿ˜‚ . . Ps- thanks to @feastlondon and @transatlanticfoodies for having the patience with me as I photographed their udon bowls๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™
Scientists have found that the best way to cure a cold is to eat an ice cream๐Ÿ‘Œ Preferably with some smore and chocolate sauce thrown in. Like this pretty cone of Mango Lassi icecream topped with pistachio crumbs from @chinchinicecream ๐Ÿ˜ . . Statutory warning- Please do not accept any medical advice from Instagram food bloggers ๐Ÿคฃ
Start your Friday morning with eggs, scrambled into creamy deliciousness and piles high into a burger with lots of cheese n caramelised onions @yolkbreaker who you can find in @camdenmarketldn ๐Ÿ˜ . . Absolutely love the concept- great for all you veggies looking for good burgers! Loved how rich this was and so filling too! Plus the guys are super nice and agreed to our request of extra cheese n extra eggs ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—
Dont be so Shellfish as to not share your beautiful buttery lobster with your friends, when you're dining at @fishboroughmarket ๐Ÿ˜‰ And it's not just the lobster that will steal your heart- the crispy calamari, the creamy crab on toast, the super fresh oysters and the massive fish n chips were all brilliant๐Ÿค— Pretty much every seafood dish they do is frill free, fresh and fantastic. So go here for some fancy, soFISHticated dining that wont disappoint๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ˆ just like i did with my gang aka @ladywhobrunches @feed.wing @kingkeneats
A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. But a bucket in hand is even better. And here we have a massive bucket of crispy fried chicken from @absurdbirduk with the lovely @feed.wing hand modelling for me๐Ÿ˜ I also love their mac n cheese and their Buffalo wings. And btw, they do limitless wings every Wednesday for ยฃ12. So if you are yet to make dinner plans for tonight, i have you sorted ๐Ÿ˜‰
Roti Canai from @papparichuk in @camdenmarketldn ๐Ÿ˜ . . Camden market is one of my favourite street food markets in London. Been going to it since i first moved to London 5 years back but its changed so much! Its now so much more organised, clean and the range of cuisines on offer is so immense๐Ÿค— #camdenexperience . But coming back to @papparichuk I absolutely loved their food. Satay Chicken and fried chicken were my favs but pretty much every dish they did was packing a punch. Cheap n chirpy Malay food. CANAI possibly find something better? ๐Ÿ˜‚
Meaty Monday's back with Bone Marrow with smoked soy, garlic toast and shallots. Buttery, rich bone marrow that just melts into your mouth. What a bangin dish from @inkonitolondon ๐Ÿ˜ Also love their pork belly skewers, crab tartare and that charred coconut soft serve. Yum๐Ÿ˜Š Plus the layout is super cool since youre on shared tables watching the chefs cook! So go try them out for a fun, Japanese Robatayaki in Soho. BONE Appetit๐Ÿ˜

Brunching on Cinnamon Eggy Bread with a very generous slathering of Nutella, honeycomb, caramelised bananas and mascarpone @bababoomlondon This is one of those dishes that youll struggle to finish but hate to share๐Ÿ˜‚
Happy Friday guys! What better way to start your day than with fresh, warm crepes? Here I have 3 amazing crepe rolls from @crepekings - Apple Crumble, Matcha and Chocolate. Absolutely love them all. Cold n creamy ice cream, warm n gooey smore and crispy wafers. What a good combo of texture and taste ๐Ÿ˜ . . My fav might just be the matcha but as a maycha lover, my view is most likely biased๐Ÿ˜… oh and thanks to @feed.wing for sharing her giveaway with us๐Ÿ˜˜ These guys are currently at Kerb Peckham on Saturdays. They are really lovely. Its a tough job doing this part time but the owner hand rolls every paper holder and spends hours perfecting the different flavour combos. So well done to them and thanks for bringing these to London! . . Chocolate/Matcha/Apple Crumble- Which would you pick?
Super crispy salt and pepper squid from @gigglingsquid ๐Ÿ˜ Lovely little neighbourhood Thai restaurant in Kingston. This is their signature dish and is really good. But the other great dishes are amongst the mains. Loved the pad thai, orange duck and also the beef rib curry๐Ÿ˜Š
Amazing feasting menu from @temperlondon (City branch) - here we have the rib eye, beef fat tacos, fish tacos and their brilliant cocktails. Really fun tasting menu. The tacos and steak were to die for ๐Ÿ˜ Plus if you get seats at the counter, youll get to see all the kitchen theatrics too! Taco about an all rounded experience! Thanks a lot to @adwaiz for arranging ๐Ÿ˜Š
Meaty Mondays are back with these sexy, crispy tenders in Lemon Pepper and Louisiana Rub from @wingstopuk
They say beauty is in the pie of the beholder and today I present to you the prettiest of them all- this PB&J pie from @apieparty An amazing buttery brownie base with peanut butter topped with a crust of white chocolate, peanuts and raspberry, this really is a party for your taste buds, not just your eyes๐Ÿ˜ Most of you have already been to @apieparty and rightfully, they have done so well and grown so much. They are handsdown the best pies for me in London. So if you haven't yet been, go go go! Many thanks to @feastlondon for the treat๐Ÿ˜Š
How do you like your eggs in the morning? I like mine on a beautiful Lebanese flatbread topped with sumac and lamb mince. What a way to start the day @thelebanesebakeryldn . . Theyve got a range of other savoury and sweet options from tahini to halwa strawberries to sirloin. Cheap, filling and absolutely yum๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿค—
Happy Fryday! Bringing you some epic fries complete with fried chicken, bacon parmesan and caesar dressing. So messy. So good.
