IKOYI

So I finally went to Ikoyi! It was actually a last minute surprise visit. I had been having a shitty week at work and to top it off, the Friday of said week was multiple times worse. Having lamented to Mr J all day, coming home and lamenting some more, he knew there was only…

Duck & Waffle

I had officially lived in London for 3.5 years before I went to Duck & Waffle for the first time. For some reason, many people found that strange. Do you? I had definitely been inside Heron Tower (the building that houses Duck & Waffle) to visit one of the bars; I just never made it…

&SUYA

West Africa came to slay in North London and I’m so here for it! The new wave of African “fine” Dining fills me with so much excitement. I am constantly amazed by the creativity of these chefs and they way they take meals and ingredients I have been around all my life, and turn them…

Jerkmaica

I have not done a restaurant review in a little while, partly because it is now so cold in London and frankly I have not had the time. When I was approached to try the ‘best roti in London’ and provide an honest review, I dug out my camera and reported for foodie duty. I…

Top 3 Places to Eat in New Orleans

So I went to New Orleans (NOLA) over 5 months ago, that’s right, FIVE whole months. How is it November? This post has been in the works for a long time for two reasons; one, I literally obliterated any food I came across in NOLA before I had a chance to take a picture, two,…

Hello Lovelies, The weather in London has been ridiculously gloomy. Rain, wind and more rain is the order of the day. Naturally when it came to suggesting a place to eat for a catchup with some work friends, I picked the closest place to work. I was overruled by a friend of mine who was…

Dirty Bones

Last Friday the girls and I made a cheeky stop at Dirty Bones for a dinner catch-up. I was initially skeptical of a place called “Dirty Bones”. I’m not a huge fan of Shoreditch for a number of reasons, so when it was suggested I was a little hesitant. Upon visiting the Dirty Bones website…

Big Easy

My good friend Cherono (hey girl!) and I went to Big Easy in Covent Garden for a lobster attack. See, Cherono doesn’t live in London so I was trying to show her the best places. Did I achieve that? Well let’s find out.

“Chicken and Waffles? Really?” Absolutely! I love chicken, and before you laugh, I put it to you that it has nothing to do with my melanin (or maybe it does, but who cares). There’s nothing quite like some good chicken! So when my friend told me about a restaurant whose strapline is “The best free…

Bill’s

Hey Guys, I know it’s late, but happy 2015 to you all. I hope this year brings good things to you and yours. Now on to the post. Let me first say that I struggled to write this up because I was very underwhelmed by my visit to this establishment. I suspect it was for…
