It's A No Brainer, Dum Dum

Dum Dum Doughnuts opened this week in London and boy are we glad there's a tastier, healthier alternative. That's right, healthier, because Dum Dum Doughnuts are baked not fried. Owner Paul has spent years perfecting his technique with stints in France and Italy, and the patissier's craftsmanship shows. The hardest part is choosing which one to have. You can't beat a good old regular jam doughnut but when vying for attention amongst cronuts (croissant-donut hybrid if you didn't know -- where hav ... Continue

Radar Image Greedy Cow Burgers & Steaks

London's Greedy Cow

The Greedy Cow is a delight to be experienced on the Mile End Road. Not very well know for its culinary delights, the delightful Mile End is proud to play host to this little burger and steak house opposite the station. Taking pride of place on the menu is the 'build-your-own-burger' scenario that we all know and love. But everything is made lovingly from scratch, with real, tasty, freshly sourced ingredients. A highlight is the lamb burger, perfectly cooked to your requirements, you can taste t ... Continue

Radar Image The Star Of Bethnal Green

The Star Of Bethnal Green On London's East End

The Star of Bethnal Green, is quite literally, what it says on the tin. Amongst a road of predominantly white, traditional, East London boozers (not to say there's anything bad about these) is this little gem, quiet and relaxed during the daytime, with an array of DJ's and disco nights in the evening. As well as a selection of locally brewed beers, The Star has a kitchen and food menu to challenge any Gordon Ramsay establishment. From two for one pizzas on a Monday, to their legendary Sunday Roa ... Continue

Radar Image Daquise

Daquise For Upscale Polish In London

Gessler at Daquise is homemade Polish food, calorific, elegant and with more than a whiff of Old Europe. Long established on Thurloe Street and among London's Polish community, the Daquise first opened in 1947. It is now run by the Gesslers, a family of Polish restaurateurs whose Warsaw address, U Kucharzy (The Chefs) in the converted former hotel kitchen of the Europejski Hotel, was once a notorious meeting place for Communists, and is now adorned with a Michelin star. The gold lacquer painted ... Continue

Boisdale For A Classy Date At Canary Wharf

If you're confined to the corporate wasteland that is Canary Wharf, there's at least one place for a classy date. Step into Boisdale and experience 1950s nightlife in its finest incarnation -- the supper club. The red and gold décor coupled with jazzy crooners, high-end Scottish fare and a novella-length whisky menu are the perfect antidotes to a long day behind the desk. Try the rib-eye steak with creamy spinach in white truffle oil, or, if the plaid carpeting and mounted hog's head has you cra ... Continue

Radar Image Tayyabs

Tayyab's in Whitechapel

Behind a street cluttered with fried chicken shops sits the unassuming Tayyab's, whose inexpensive Pakistani delicacies have become so renowned that at 10 o'clock on a Tuesday night, the two-story dining room is jumping. The interior is austere, the food aromatic, the wait staff attentive. Reservations are essential at this Whitechapel institution established in 1972 as a Punjabi grill. The lamb chops starter, marinated in lime and garlic, is mouth-watering. The cardamom braised dry meat course ... Continue

Radar Image Dead Dolls Club

Pop-Up Stew In London

For a traditional British meal that is served up by means of a thoroughly contemporary concept, pop-up restaurants like The Stew House are the way to go. East London sees many come and go but few have managed to create the buzz that the latest creation from The Dead Dolls Club has. The simple menu sees eight different types of stew served up alongside a fine dining starter and a traditional British dessert. Every mouthful is washed down with locally brewed ales from London Fields Brewery, an ... Continue

Delicious Pakistani Dishes At London's Lahore Kebab House

In all honesty, the BYOB policy of Lahore Kebab House was what originally attracted my party of 12 friends, but we left with our bellies and minds more full of delicious Pakistani dishes than of cheap drinks. You can't exactly describe is as an intimate restaurant (their Whitechapel establishment sits 350 people, and we went during Ramadan around sunset so you can imagine the debate!) but what they lack in cosy décor they make up with warm smothering flavours. The starters of spicy chicken skewe ... Continue

Salad Club

There's nothing like being in on a city secret; it makes you feel like you're one step ahead of the crowd.  Thousands of people eat out in London daily but few visit a secret destination run by food enthusiasts, complete with mystery menu. Secret supper clubs are London?s latest craze.


Feeling encumbered by free time? Join Jen Wight as she leads you on the most minuscule daytrip around! Loiter by the waterways, cycle to the beat of  mum-and-daughter horse riders, look at sheep and excessively binge-drink while making fun of foreigners. You may never take a real vacation again.

Jeremy Paxman Is Wrong

Don't let John Parton's swaggering discursiveness fool you. He may not leave his house til nightfall, nor form an explicitly user-friendly sentence, but he sure knows his way around the city he loves. Read on for the poetical journey of one man's jaunt among famous gravestones, "Georgian money shots," the siren calls of sari-hawkers and adulatory attention of miscreants.
