Pizza Express, St Albans

I haven’t long blogged about Pizza Express (post here) however when their new Christmas/Winter menu launched a month ago, I had to return to give the new dishes a whirl. It is my favourite after all and we were in the area. Anything can be made into an excuse for pizza! The St Albans branch is a particular favourite of mine because of the memories it holds, having visited there pretty much every weekend with my brother and my dad as a child. The decor (and menu) has remained largely the same since then, which is lovely – as they do…

In My Wardrobe:

Pizza Buzz, Wisdom Street

If you asked me to name my ideal dinner, I’m 99% sure it would involve pizza and wine. There’s something so very comforting about the combination – and so deliciously satisfying. Whether it’s a date night or with friends, where there’s pizza and wine, you’re guaranteed a good time. So when an email popped into my inbox from Pizza Buzz, with details of their new Bottomless Bubbles and Pizza night – I’m sure you can only guess my immediate response. For £25 per head, between 6-9pm on weeknights, the incredible restaurant (whose unique concept I’ll go into in a second) offers unlimited…

The Folly, Bank

Although of course the focal point to any restaurant has to be their menu, visiting somewhere with incredible decor really does make for a special experience. Themed bars can seem a little too ‘novelty’ however when it’s done well, it can be amazing. And the latter statement was definitely applicable to a gorgeous little place I visited recently with my friend Hayley. On the corner of Grace Church Street lies The Folly, a whimsical, fantastical place with a ‘garden influence’ throughout. In other words, as soon as you enter – it feels as though you’re crossing into some sort of fairy…

In my bathroom:

The Ship Tavern, Holborn

From the outset, The Ship Tavern looks like an ordinary little London pub. It doesn’t ooze glamour or sophistication, it simply offers some great beers, some massive TV’s and a few comfy seats. However, if you head to the back and follow the winding staircase up to the top, you’ll come to a secret dining spot that does offer something rather special. Illuminated by candlelight, the small, but perfectly formed maghony panelled room is known as the ‘Oak Room’ and offers an incredible menu unrivalled by anywhere else I’ve been. I had the pleasure of visiting a few Saturday’s ago, an escape…

MUGA, Piccadilly

Japanese is probably my favourite cuisine. However, London (as with anything) has a tendency to overcomplicate things. Rather than letting great food shine, they overdo it and focus on fancy backdrops, liquid nitrogen masterpieces and dishes with more focus on the ‘show’ than the taste. Sometimes, it’s nice to go somewhere fuss free, a no frills (but clean and comforting) place, centred on creating amazing flavours with affordable price tags. Luckily, that’s what I’m going to be talking about today – having come across the cutest little ramen restaurant – tucked slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly…
