Antico

Italian in Bermondsey


Antico, a neighbourhood restaurant on Bermondsey Street serves classic Italian food in a causal setting with a gin bar down stairs called 214 Bermondsey. It sounded like a winning combination on paper with the rising pre-dinner cocktail trends in London, with Italian classics such as Martini and Negroni proven to be popular among the young professionals. I visited Antico on a Friday evening for a Birthday gathering and hoped for a full Italian dining experience.

Four Seasons

Chinese BBQ


Four Seasons is one of the few well known Chinese restaurant groups in London, if I had to pick one Chinese restaurant in China Town to recommend, Four Seasons would be the only one due to its quality Chinese BBQ items at a very reasonable price. This time around I went for the usual meat combo to share with a friend and a main of Malaysian style fried rice off its special menu.

Launceston Place

The taste of Spring 


If you're a regular reader of my blog, you will know I am a massive fan of Launceston Place, located in the quite neighbourhood near Cromwell Road. Head chef Tim Allen and his team have really got something special going on inside this 1 Michelin starred restaurant. A great degree of presentation and wonderful flavours with a creative approach on top of lovely service, Launceston Place ticks all the boxes that make me want to keep going back, and this time I returned to try out their latest tasting menu.

Mandarin Kitchen

Chinese seafood feast


Located in Queensway, the unofficial second China Town in London, Mandarin Kitchen is considered one of the best Chinese restaurants in London and it is famous for its Chinese style seafood. Chinese value seafood as a luxury and usually are the most expensive items on the menu in most Chinese restaurants, it has been a long time since I had a seafood feast in London so I was very excited when Mandarin Kitchen came into my knowledge as quality Chinese seafood is a rarity in London.

Antidote

What the bread?


Antidote is a wine bar and restaurant in Soho, which lately has been buzzing in the food blogging community when it came to light that it appointed chef patron of Hedone to consult the menu and ingredients. Personally I am not much of a fan of Hedone having eaten there two years ago and which wasn't really anything special. However with its location and a few good positive reviews, I stopped by Antidote for a pre-dinner drink and some small bites.
