December is notorious for being the dark & dingy month. That month that nobody wants to be outside… unless pretty lights & hot food are involved. Some might head to Hyde Park for that wintery fair which I can’t even type because it stresses me out – overpriced food, rides and massive crowds of inconsiderate people. Do I sound like the Grinch yet? Luckily there are better options for a festive evening! Some might think...

Ooops – this post seems to have been lost somewhere in my drafts, but definitely deserves some love. Back in May, Lucy & I were in Shoreditch after work and looking for a bite to eat. Lucy is a coeliac (alleric to gluten) so she searched for somewhere Gluten-free friendly on her Gluugle app and Bill’s was an option. I had heard some great things about Bill’s on the grapevine so we decided to try it out...

Last Wednesday I received an email from Byron – I signed up to their newsletter for updates about new burgers etc. But this wasn’t about the latest menu addition – it was an invite to eat for free at the opening weekend of the new Byron on the Strand! Free Byron burgers? I’m there! So I booked a table for the Saturday and 2 minutes later it was sold out! (Hoarding design by Charlie Smith) The...

So, here’s a bit of a break from Burgers(sorrynotsorry) – Poppies of Spitalfields is British personified: Fish and Chips. I had heard a couple of people mention Poppies and when Nadia and I found ourselves on the streets of Shoreditch and hungry (not homeless!) we decided to head to Poppies. ‘Best Fish ‘n’ Chips discovered in London town’ – a big claim to make, so would Poppies live up to it? Well, they have been named...

So after the success of the first Food & Fonts post I was hungry for some more tasty typography (and food). After Pick Me Up, Alex, Emma, Jack and I had worked up an appetite and headed to Soho where we was drawn by the BBQ smell of Bodean’s: I’d never been before, but had read good things around the blogosphere and how can you resist anywhere with a neon sign and pig shaped door...

As a country girl, one of the things I enjoy about being in London is the food. With such a wide range of cultures there is always something different to try from Mexican to Japanese. I’m quite poor at the moment (and generally careful with my money anyway) so you won’t find me eating out for lunch/dinner every week but everyone deserves a little treat now and again, and I like to eat. And of course as...
