Busaba Eathai – Westfield

March 18, 2012

Last week’s team lunch was all about coconut milk, curry and noodles. We tried Busaba Eathai – Westfield and were actually well surprised. Chopsticks lovers, this place is for you!

Like most of Westfield’s restaurants, Busaba Eathai is located on the Southern terrace with some tables outside for sunny days. Unfortunately that day wasn’t hot enough to eat outside so we got a large square table for 6 inside.
The place is quite dark, furnished with large wooden tables and big softened lamps hanging above – nothing more. Some incense perfumes the entrance and welcomes you while waiting for a waiter.

Coquine

March 15, 2012

What a naughty name for a French restaurant 🙂

I got a Groupon deal of 3 courses with Prosecco for two for £29 (instead of £81) at Coquine, so we’ve dined there with my friend a couple of days ago. Read the rest of this entry ?

The Owl and Pussycat

March 12, 2012

I had my first SUNDAY ROAST ever in 3 years spent in London! Woohoo!

And the lucky place we chose for that was The Owl and Pussycat in Shoreditch.

That rustic British pub has all you need if you want to be proper Brit with a roast and pint for a day 🙂 The name itself already sounds like a real old fashioned pub for the Frenchie that I am.

The Real Greek – Westfield

March 1, 2012


Again, I took ages to write that one… about last Friday’s lunch! That was a beautiful sunny day, almost like summer time, and thus it was the perfect occasion to enjoy a Mediterranean meal at The Real Greek.
That restaurant chain was founded in 1999 and has now 7 branches across London. Read the rest of this entry ?

Machiavelli

February 25, 2012

Gosh time goes fast! Now I’m blogging about a place I visited last weekend!!! Not good, but I still want to write about it as we had a fantastic time there with two of my friends.
Ah, Italian food… I feel like I’m eating that all the time these days. But there’s a reason for that: it’s one of the best!

So last Sunday we were around Covent Garden and wanted to try a new place, but discovered they were selling only paninis and salads. Not in the mood for that during the weekend… so we ended up at Machiavelli, another place I wanted to try, for our greater delight 🙂

Kitchen Italia – Westfield

February 21, 2012

Last Friday we wanted to go to Pizza Express (Westfield) with the team to enjoy a very good offer “buy one main, get one for £2.50”! Unfortunately this place gets very busy at lunch time, especially on Fridays… so we ended up at Kitchen Italia. I’ll make it short because it’s a very simple place and there’s not much to say.

Wahaca – Shepherd’s Bush

February 5, 2012

Wahaca, or should I say Oaxaca, is a mexican restaurant chain in London.
Oaxaca? A bit of history: it is located in Southwestern Mexico and is one of the 31 states which comprise the 32 federative entities of Mexico. It is divided into 571 municipalities. 571… hum… how do they manage that??? The state has some of the greatest biodiversity in Mexico and is also best known for its indigenous peoples and cultures. The most numerous and best known are the Zapotecs and the Mixtecs. I should plan a trip to Latin America…
