Raising the steaks high with this sirloin taglietan in Zatar butter 😍@puccimayfair Also loved that nduja-honey- burrata pizza🤤 Perfect amount of spicy and creamy. Octopus, seabass carpaccio and beef carpaccio were also good. And that Eton mess looked like a painting💗😌 . . Great lil Italian place in Mayfair for a classy night where you can choose to keep it classy with small plates or get messy with a pizza😅👌 Only downside is portion sizes are small so is fairly pricey but guess thats Mayfair for you🤷‍♀️ #invite
What's your NUMber? Just wanna send you the deets of this new spot in London for Modern Sichuan food called @numnumuk 😅😏 . . Loved the wonton noodle soup, Bone marrow rice, pan fried dumplings and beef shin noodles😍 Most dishes are also £7 or less, so pocket friendly too👌 Honey n spice roasted chicken was the only one that I thought could be better in flavour but everything else was yum🙌
Having a Balansed meal @balanssohosociety in Clapham😁 with their massive cheeseburger stacked high with maple bacon and red onion marmalade; pumpkin ravioli; seared scallops; smoked mozzarella and bolognese arancini and a choco orange sundae 😍🤤 . . My favs have to be the the ravioli and the burger. Arancini were also super moorish. What could be done better was the Baileys cheesecake because i found the flavour to be too mild (or maybe im just an alcoholic😅). Also the pork belly needed a fattier cut of pork imo. Scallops and lamb neck were decent. But I think the real appeal for me is that @balanssohosociety in Soho is open 24 hours! So perfect for a late night dinner post cocktails 😏 #invite
*Giveaway time* . . A new bar has opened in London and its the most exciting kind of bar you could imagine- a burrata bar called @matildesalads where you can order all the creamy burratas with parma ham, roasted peppers, avo or salami! They also have a range of healthy salads but I think I'll pick the burrata💁‍♀️ This bar is fully digital aka you can order from the comfort of your home in PJs via Deliveroo in Islington, Wembley and Hammersmith😏 . . And today I am giving you the opportunity to order £50 worth of food from @matildesalads 🤩 That's pretty much one of all the 7 burratas they've got on the menu plus drinks! Results in 3 days, so get tagging😉 . . To take part, all you need to do is- 1) like this post 2) follow @matildesalads and @truffleandtoast 2) comment below tagging who you'd share these cheese balls of happiness with💗 . Good luck😘
Fried Chicken and Ice cream burger from Seoul😍 . . Imagine hot n crispy n spicy Korean fried chicken balanced by the sweetness of the icecream and honey drizzled on top🤤 with @feed.wing and @sah_brie_na . . Smash or pass?😏
Today's crabby weather is making me miss the sunny weekend involving an ace brunch @bluebirdcafew12 complete with this Crab linguine, truffle spaghetti, calamari and a dessert involving a Banoffee chocolate mousse presented in an actual sports car made out of chocolate🤩! . Overall I enjoyed the food and the drinks. The pastas were great as was that dessert. I couldn't stop eating it! Plus great selection of cocktails inspired by cities around the world. The only thing that could be better was the seafood section- the Lobster roll needed much more lobster and the grilled prawns needed fatter, juicier prawns. However, given a 3 course meal is only £20, its defo a good deal 🤗 #invite
Absolutely baa-mb lamb chops from @farzilondon 😍 Equally good were the popcorn paneer and the steak but the real highlight for me was the dessert of Srikhand mango cheesecake🤤Best dessert I've had in an Indian restaurant in a while 👏 . . Some other dishes could be better- biryani was a bit tol salty and the arancini needed some cheese. Wagyu sliders were tasty but needed stronger elements of Indian cuisine. So a bit mixed but I think they have some great fusion dishes specially around fusion Indian/Italian and I'd defo go back just for the desserts and those lamb chops 🤗 #invite
You cant not be shellfish when it comes to sharing these amazing garlic and chilli Scallops with Vermicelli, a million flavours packed onto every mouthful @sichuangrand 😍 . . Equally amazing were the pork belly, the Dan dan noodles, the wontons and the dry wok fried lotus roots 🤤 An amazing option for those visiting @westfieldstratfordcity because its 2 mins away but the food is way better than the chains you get in Westfield! Authentic Sichuan food and such an array of choices 👏 . Ps- got to try Whelk aka sea-snails here for the first time😅🙈 have you tried Whelk? . . #invite
Never too matcha of matcha is my mantra in life! Absolutely amazing range of Matcha goodies in London's first Matcha bar @matchaandbeyond 😁💚 . . My absolute favourite has to be the green velvet cake- ultra creamy n flavoursome but without being too sweet🍰 Equally yum were those chunky matcha n white chocolate chip cookies and that matcha babka! They also have some great gluten free and vegan options too. The matcha financiers are gluten free but you couldn't even tell😯 Plus the range of drinks is much larger than a latte- you've got a Matcha americano, hot chocolate and even an espresso!👏 The owner is a nutritionist herself and I was amazed how much thought she put into every dish. Do give it a go, you'll find the quality hard to matcha 😅🤗 #invite
Dear pizza, olive you so much!❤ But olive you even more with some gorgeous extra virgin olive oil drizzled all over you 😍🤤 . . Olive oil is seriously underrated. Good quality olive oil makes basic bread feel gourmet! I love it on burrata, on salads and even pastas👌 But whats best about olive oil, is that it adds to the taste without the guilt- it is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants. Scientists have even proven its ability to reduce the risk of having a heart attack or stroke by 30%. Now by no means am I asking you to drink up a litre of olive oil😂, but it is a great addition to a balanced diet for sure!🤗 . . So olive oil on pizza - yay or nay? Comment below and tell me so I know I'm not alone 🙈😅 #gifted #oliveoilworldtour #letsmakeatastierworld @oliveoilworldtoureu

Baa-ffled at just how good the lamb chops, salmon tartare and truffle seabass carpaccio @isshoni_uk are😍😅 Katsu was also ace. I'd give the rest of the hot dishes a miss and focus on the raw fish dishes which is where they excel 👌#invite
Serious #mondaymotivation with this serious stack of pancakes from @thelittlebluedoorfulham 😍 How many pancakes did you count?😏
Pancake day is fast approaching so I wanted to throwback to these Japanese souffle pancakes from @fuwafuwalondon 😍 These fluffy, light delicious pancakes will fuwever be my favourites in London😊🤤❤
Some absolutely beWiching sandwiches @whichwichuk 😍 You can go for their premier options like Beef Mushroom melt, BBQ pulled pork, Big Italian Meatball OR you could create your own! Loved the range of choices- defo the best in all of London plus they do some ace milkshakes😀 Thanks to @kingkeneats for taking me 🤗 . . What would your ideal sandwich include?😏
Was it too 'ballsy' of me to order one of everything on the menu @arancinibrothers ? 😅 Perhaps, but then you again can never have too much of arancini aka Italian cheesy rice balls! 😍 Here I have their burger, wraps and salad box, all using arancini as the main component😊 . . So what were my thoughts? The first thing to mention is that @arancinibrothers are fully vegan so a bit difficult for me to compare it to the usual meaty cheese arancinis I have. But what I liked was that inspite of being vegan they did have a creamy texture and a crisp outside. I wish it was more gooey inside and it had more flavour. Still if I had to pick one, the caramelised onion arancini was my fav of the different types they had. Their packaging materials are also all fully recyclable. So they really are dedicated to the cause! If youre vegan, you'll defo enjoy the food. If not, give them a go if you want healthier arancini💁‍♀️ #invite
Siu me if you think this is too much of a bold statement but the best bbq street food I've had in London is from @smokin_lotus who make some amazing fusion dishes like these 8 hour slow smoked char siu pork ribs and a 10 hour slow cooked beef brisket😍 Such fragrant, tender meats, so much flavour🤤 . . They're currently on tour but keep a look out for when they're back at @kerbfood 😁 Thank me later😉 . . #invite
Dimsum so pretty you'll be wonton to frame them😉😅 Tried out some Michelin star dumplings @yauatchacity alongside some epic desserts (Raspberry delice and a Pecan Coffee Delice) and their famous venison puffs🤤 . . I am sure you'll be wondering if these dishes are value for money given the Chinatown alternatives. The answer is depends. If you want standard noodles and roast duck then no. But if you wanna try some exquisitely crafted fusion dumplings or desserts, then @yauatchacity is hard to beat! I'd go here just for the desserts❤ . #invite
