Opera Tavern Review: Guardian Voted Best Burger In London

Burgers are still a hot topic in London. You’d think people would have moved on by now, right? Well, we haven’t. The gourmet burger game was first upped by Yianna┬áPapoutsis and his Meat Wagon back in 2009. This grew into the MeatLiquor / Mission / Market franchise and with it, a plethora of other places trying to achieve the coveted ‘best burger in...

Reilly Rocket Review: East London Breakfast

There are loads of decent coffee shops and breakfast spots on Kingsland road in Dalston but Reilly Rocket has to be one of the very best. Inspired by the cafes in Melbourne but with a focus on local coffee and produce, I really couldn’t fault the place. Atmosphere and Decor – 9/10 Reillys is small but bright and airy with a glass front. We were there...

Pizza Pilgrims Restaurant Review, Soho

Just off of Soho square, cheekily positioned opposite the Pizza Express jazz bar, you’ll find the Pizza Pilgrims boys’ first permanent restaurant. They’re the pin ups of pop up, starting out from a van after touring Italy together to find the best base, ingredients, and flavour combos. Now after Microsoft featured them in a campaign and years of...

Coppa Rooftop BBQ & Bar Review, London Fields

Summer sibling of nearby Lardo, Coppa is a bar and restaurant tucked away on the Hothouse Rooftop on Martello Street next to London Fields. It opened 6 weeks ago and is the area’s best kept secret, although I’m sure (unfortunately) it won’t be a secret for long. Atmosphere and Decor – 9/10 Coppa is one of those places that you wouldn’t...

St John of Smithfield Restaurant Review

St John is some what of an institution on the London restaurant circuit; well for the carnivores amongst us, at least. Their ethos is Nose to Tail eating – so expect an offal heavy menu with animal parts you may not have tried before (deep fried tripe, anyone?), that are served in the traditional way with no fuss. Atmosphere & Deor – 7/10 The...

New Hackney Burger Restaurant – The Advisory Review

I’ve been living just off of Mare Street for two years now, and in that short time, it has changed hugely. Before it was just chicken shops and Icelands with a few divey pubs to mix things up , not forgetting the irony-laden and Hipster filled Dolphin that recently celebrated its 10th birthday. Now there’s the Hackney Picturehouse which brings the crowds...

Patty & Bun Burger Review: Best Burger in London – Nearly

I finally got myself to Patty and Bun, to try the burgers that are often honoured with the title of ‘best burger in London’. Patty and Bun opened last year and has had rave reviews and massive queues out the door ever since. The best burger I’ve had so far in London is at Lucky Chip at the Sebright Arms in Hackney. Delicious lean meat cooked to...
