Robata

Japanese food is big in London and we’re spoiled for choice with restaurants to choose from. Robabta, located on busy Old Compton Street in Soho, specialises in Japanese grilled charcoal cooking. It’s small and slightly cramped with the tables tightly packed together, but it works and this is what I imagine edgy restaurants in Tokyo…

Hello Veganuary 2020

Veganuary conquered restaurant menus with a bang this year – hello 2020! They’ve met the rising demand for more plant based options by creating lots of delicious, new dishes. I honestly never thought I’d see this much choice for vegans – what a time to be alive! I’ve rounded up some of the hottest new…

Vegan tartlets

I’ve been missing quiche and savoury tarts recently so I thought I’d play around with plant based recipes this weekend. Here’s the recipe for plant based tartlets – great for dinner, canapés for a party and of course I’m always thinking about the lunch box!     Ingredients: Broccoli Asparagus Mushrooms Cherry tomatoes Firm tofu…

Indian Accent

Indian food forms a significant part of my diet (mainly because I’m Indian and this is the food I grew up on and loveee). A lot of classic Indian dishes are accidentally plant based and many can be adapted to remove yoghurt or butter making them suitable for vegans. I’ve found that most fine dining Indian restaurants…

Little Kolkata

Tucked away on Shelton Street in Covent Garden, Little Kolkatta is one of the many newer Indian restaurants meeting the demand for fun, Indian dining in London. I’ve not been to Kolkata but have always been intrigued by the city and cooking style, especially after watching TV shows such as Kolkata with Sue Perkins which…

Kalifornia Kitchen

Instagram chic Kalifornia Kitchen resembles what you can imagine a hipster, vegan cafe in California to look like with aesthetics being a priority here. The popping pink, wall quotes and flower walls are a dream for diners looking for photo opps for the gram.   From the get go, I had a good gut feeling…

Farzi Cafe

Already a hotspot across Dubai and India, its time for the modern spice bistro to shine in London. Farzi Café specialises in Indian food with a twist, famous for its unique presentation and gastronomical dining. Located on busy Haymarket, I’m sure this restaurant will be a popular spot with both Londoners and tourists. I visited…

Are you trying Veganuary or reducing meat foods this year? With the rise in the number of people reducing meat in their diets, restaurants have become more creative and adapted their menus. Here’s a round up of some restaurants in London that surprisingly offer delicious vegan friendly dishes. It’s important to me to find restaurants…

Brasserie of Light

The Brasserie of Light is Selfridges latest gem, perfect for a well deserved shopping break or special occasion. I visited the restaurant to celebrate my best friends engagement and it was a lovely evening. The chic restaurant is part of The Ivy group and the service and diverse British and internationally inspired menu reflects their…

Roasted romanesco

I’ve recently been seeing romanesco pop up on trendy food menus and have been eager to try cooking with it. I first tried it at Farmstand in Covent Garden where its available as a side veg on their seasonal menu. It’s similar to cauliflower and broccoli and tastes delicious! Its packed with vitamin A and…
