Le Chateaubriand, Paris

“Where shall we eat tonight?” we asked each other on a Saturday night in Paris, after spending most of the day walking (and shopping!) around town. “What about Le Chateaubriand, some people say it’s amazing!” Because who needs a booking for Saturday night at one of the best restaurants in Paris? Thanks to their system, they do two services a night […]

Stoke Newington Farmers Market, London

We heard many good things about the delicious farmer’s market in Stoke Newington (London), so we jumped on our bikes and off we were to discover that corner of the city. It was a chill winter day, but the omnipresent sun more than made it up for the cold. Although it’s quite small (think around 20-25 stalls), there’s such […]

Arabica London – Levantine Feast

Arabica Bar & Kitchen is a cozy and friendly middle-eastern restaurant based in the notorious Borough Market. Usually not open on Sundays, they decided to change this by offering a refreshing alternative to a classic roast: a Levantine feast. The launch event was nothing short of a beer & food pairing guided by the energetic & fun Melissa Cole. […]

The Clove Club

Dining at The Clove Club, a restaurant/bar located in the Shoreditch Town Hall in London, has been on top of our todo list for quite a while. We’ve read about  their creative, yet down-to-earth, British cuisine made with mainly local ingredients (and some discreetly intertwined Japanese influences). Obviously, we couldn’t handle the call of the extended […]

The Ethicurean

We’ve dreamed about going to The Ethicurean for a while. Not really because of the raving reviews & tweets, but because we’ve been salivating over the luscious pages of their book for quite some time. To put in context, the Ethicurean is a lovely homey restaurant tucked away in the bucolic country-side in Somerset, not […]

Markthalle 9, Berlin

While in Berlin for a short weekend, I happened to visit a very cool local market in Kreuzberg, Markthalle IX. Opened in 1891, it’s one of the last historic markets in Berlin that stood the test of time. The architecture of the hall is very open, with large spaces and thin metal pillars to hold […]

Impressions – Honey & Co, London

As it should be clear by now, we’re seriously addicted to middle-eastern cuisine. We heard about this cute little place called Honey & Co, in London’s Fitzrovia and had to give it a go for a brunner (a 4pm brunch/dinner…) Smart move! Every thing on the menu sounded delicious, so we picked the Yemeni falafels […]

Impressions – Ottolenghi, London

Yotam Ottolenghi has been one of our favourites chefs of all times. His food is simple, diverse, and absolutely delicious. We genuinely connected with his cooking style, influences and recipes: generally gorgeous middle-eastern dishes with loads of veggies and plenty of our favourite ingredients and spices such as garlic, sumac, za’atar, lemons, yogurt or tahini. […]

Impressions – St John, London, UK

For any meat-eater who’s ever been to London, the question of trying St. John or not has more than likely been considered. Certainly not a place for the faint of heart or for those macrobiotic friends of yours that consider a grilled chicken breast the most extreme exposure with animal proteins, this is a temple […]
