TRIED & TESTED: WHYTE & BROWN LONDON

October 5th, 2013

whyteandbrownlondon

Most striking feature:

The Award-winning bartender? The two-storey building? The location? Or the restaurant upstairs? Whyte & Brown is open for a few weeks now and the manager loves to tell me that their menu revolves around chicken and free range eggs. Whether you come here for breakfast, lunch or dinner there is always a dish with those ingredients on the menu. For example, the Brick Chicken (12.95 pounds). This is Half a chicken with S & B signature seasoning which has a 24-hour slow-cooked confit thigh and a 12-hour slow-cooked wing. Yummy! Behind the bar is Ryan Chetiyawardana. He has been awarded UK Read more…

shoreditchgrindlondon

Most striking feature:

The location and their coffees ofcourse. Shoreditch Grind is located in Shoreditch on a busy roundabout where many bus- and subway-lines meet. So if you change here, you can stop at Shoreditch Grind for a good cup of coffee. To take-away or to drink in their bar or on the terrace. Don’t forget to Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: ONE LEICESTER STREET LONDON

October 3rd, 2013

oneleicesterstreetlondon

Most striking feature:

The rooms. One Leicester Street once was the St John Hotel, a hotel of Trevor and Fergus, two well-known chefs and food-entrepreneurs from London (St. JOHN restaurant). They closed the doors and One Leicester Street opened a restaurant, bar and hotel at the same address. It is part of the Unlisted Collection of hotelier Peng Loh from Singapore who can also count the Waterhouse at South Bund in Shanghai, Wanderlust in Singapore and Town Hall Hotel & Apartments in London to their collection. And they know how to run top notch restaurants as well: Table no one has a Michelin star, just like the Corner Room in London. And news of this week is that last the restaurant of One Leicester Street has been awarded with such a coveted star too. Congrats! Let’s talk about the rooms. There are Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: 100 HOXTON LONDON

October 2nd, 2013

100hoxtonlondon

Most striking feature:

The huge glass windows. 100 Hoxton is only open a few weeks and is within walking distance of the Ace Hotel, but you really have to do your best to find it, because it is not among many other restaurants. Once there was an Indian restaurant at this location, but you see nothing of that anymore. The restaurant got a complete metamorphose by Yaojen Chuang: from the glass facade to the concrete floor and from the bar in the middle to the colored tops on the tables. In the kitchen we find a mix of chefs. One chef, Tim Yates, comes from Australia and knows the Thai cuisine inside out. The other Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: YARDBIRD HONG KONG

July 5th, 2013

yardbirdhongkong

Most striking feature:

The skewers. I’ve tried three of them but I wish I had ordered them all. They are so good! Yardbird opened it’s doors two years ago and it’s still the place to go to. They don’t take reservations so you have to come early. I went there at 6pm and at 6.30pm almost the whole restaurant was full already. People first take a seat at the lively bar area (oh, do I love those chairs) and order themselves a cocktail – or two. Then they can Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: BLUE BUTCHER HONG KONG

July 5th, 2013

bluebutcherhongkong

Most striking feature:

The walk-in pink salt dry-aging room. A mouth full but it means that they have a walk-in closet for their meat on the first floor. Yes, this restaurant isn’t called the Blue Butcher because they do vegetarian dishes. No, in here you will eat the best meat in town. They prepare, bake, age and hang everything in-house. So you will understand that with those preparations it can’t go wrong anymore. On the ground floor there’s Read more…
