Are you looking for the perfect day trip from Amsterdam? Or a place where you can walk off the extra calories gained from binging on all those Dutch pancakes, croquettes and fries? Maybe you just want a quiet getaway break from the craziness of Amsterdam in general?
Okonomiyaki’s are fantastic! For those who haven’t heard of this amazing dish, think of it like a Japanese pizza type pancake with a cabbage, egg, spring onion, ginger and tempura batter dough base plus toppings of your choice. Now, at first, this might not sound particularly appetising, but you really have to try it yourself to appreciate the intense flavours and textures that explode in your mouth when you take a bite!
Hawksmoor prides itself on being one of the best steak houses in London, and rightly so, as the steaks are to die for. The burgers however are less well known, but knowing the high quality of meat served from Hawksmoor, we knew we were in for a treat. As part of the lunch menu, they offer a ‘Hawksmoor Hamburger with triple cooked chips’ deal for £15 and this is what we went for.
So, we first heard of this great place on Twitter, God bless Twitter! Flat Iron Steak was set to be served above the Owl & Pussycat pub in Shoreditch. As with many cool things in London, it opened in the guise of a pop-up restaurant and was open for just a few weeks in August.

The Blackheath Fireworks display is a bit of a big deal in South East London. It’s one of the biggest free community events in the capital and on Guy Fawkes weekend is the talk of the town. Year on year it gets bigger and better and it is now attracting up to 100,000 people from all around the South East. That’s pretty impressive!
And for good reason, as the fireworks display on show was spectacular! Definitely the best year yet! Here are some of the pics we took whilst marveling at this explosive show, enjoy!
So, as we entered the Mayfair branch of Goodman and walked through, there was a good vibe about the place. We admired the exposed brickwork, the American style decor and the loud chitter chatter of punters. The interior was nice, with dimmed down, ambient lighting which created a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. First impressions were good!
Alvin Leung, the ‘Demon Chef’
Alvin Leung is a truly remarkable chef. He spent 20 years of his life working as an engineer, then 9 years ago with no prior training, he opened Bo Innovation, now a restaurant holding 2 Michelin stars. To put this feat of achievement into perspective, only 2 self-taught chefs have ever earned Michelin stars; the other was Heston Blumenthal.
