Bocca Di Lupo

A few months ago, someone told me that a Pork dish that they had eaten at Bocca Di Lupo was a contender for the best dish that they had ever had. I’m not sure then why it took me the best part of a year to book. Valentines day seemed to be the perfect excuse – my boyfriend and I don’t bother with cards and presents but agreed that a nice meal was the best option. I booked a few weeks in advance and could still only get a table at 6pm but luckily it was at the chefs table, which I’d heard provided a better experience. My nerves about the restaurant being empty and lifeless were shattered as soon as we walked through the door. It was pleasantly busy and the chefs were hard at work behind the long sleek counter. Bocca Di Lupo is a classy and upmarket Italian restaurant. Don’t expect to find pizza on the menu but instead fantastic pasta, meat and fish dishes. Blood oranges are in season at the …

Hummus Bros, Soho

I have long been a fan of Hummus Bros. I used to go at least twice a week when I was interning at a nearby company during university. It was a sad affair when I left that company to start my career – the lunch options in Shoreditch weren’t so great! I love this Cafe/Restaurant because it serves one of my favourite foods with a range of hot and cold toppings along with delicious toasted Pitta Breads. Their secret Hummus recipe is faultless – smooth and absolutely delicious. It is served smothered around the side of a dish (two sizes available, small and regular) and the topping is placed in the middle. Depending on what size dish you order, you will be served with either one or two Pitta breads. I have always opted for the Vegetable Salad because I just love the crunch of fresh Red Peppers, Red Onion, Cherry Tomato and Cucumber with the smoothness of the Hummus. I’ll also add a dollop of their freshly made Green Chilli and Coriander relish and …

Bar du Marche, Soho

Bar du Marche is an intimate no frills French restaurant in Soho. Don’t go expecting haute cuisine because you won’t get it. Instead what you will get is reasonably well cooked simple French food. Six Snails arrived swimming in a welcome Garlicky and Parsley Butter and we used the left over Bread from the basket presented to you upon arrival (which you are actually charged £1.60 for!) to soak up the remnants of the dish… It went back to the kitchen spotless. I chose Moule Marinière for main as I’d had a heavy lunch and needed something light. I wouldn’t say it’s the best dish I’ve ever eaten, nor would I say it’s the worst. It was good – if only slightly too much celery for my liking. The Tarte Tatin dessert was nothing to write home about – the pastry was soggy but the apples had a nice caramel taste (although my fellow diner thought that it was burnt!) I was unsure as to why a suspicious looking Mr Whippy style strawberry sauce had …
