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…

Le Pain Quotidien

January 29, 2012

Today I’m going to take you to a place that I quite enjoy in London: Le Pain Quotidien. That Belgian restaurant chain is more than a bakery. There you can buy good bread, but also enjoy a nice meal such as soups, tartines and delicious desserts.

I strongly recommend you to go to your nearest Pain Quotidien for breakfast! Before 12:00 I love ordering a bread basket to share served with loads of jams and spreads – feel free to ask as many as you want, they’re all good! I think my favourite chocolate spread is Brunette – yummmmy can’t get enough of it. The bread basket is a selection of various breads such as wheat, baguette, walnut etc., but sometimes I ask for a basket of baguette only when I miss my French lifestyle too much 😀 Read the rest of this entry »

Today at work we decided to go for a team lunch. We usually go altogether on Fridays for a burrito, but this time we decided to try something new: Jamie’s Italian, one of the famous Jamie Oliver restaurants.

The Breakfast Club

September 21, 2011

“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”
John Gunther

Do you agree?
Well I definitely do!
And I did enjoy a great leisurely breakfast last Sunday at the Breakfast Club near Angel station.

This is a chain with 4 locations in London – Hoxton – Angel – Soho – Spitalfields – spreading sun and energy on your breakfast.
They first opened in Soho in 2005 and then quickly grew with success until their last baby that appeared in Spitalfields in May 2011 – I’m sure they won’t stop there. But for now, I’m going to talk about the one located on the lovely Camden Passage in Angel.

Shandis

September 15, 2011

When you enter this little unpretentious restaurant, you’re warmly welcomed (especially if the owner greets you) and you already feel you’ll have a pleasant time there.

Shandis is the only Persian cuisine restaurant that I know in the Islington area, among all other places scattered along the young and busy Upper Street.
Forget the surrounding agitation and the glass’n’glitter style just for the duration of a good meal and come enjoy this calm and traditional atmosphere.
You’ll need to be attentive to make sure you don’t miss it as its façade is very very discreet (just next to Fig & Olive). Fortunately they put some tables as well as a board outside so we notice there’s a restaurant living there!

DriDri

September 10, 2011


I know it’s almost autumn, but there’s no reason to avoid ice-creams! I’m a proponent of “ice-cream day is everyday” and that’s how I ended up eating at least one ice-cream per day last summer – a little daily pleasure of which you get used to very VERY quickly.

I’ve got my local, and a few other good places in areas where I like to stroll. But this summer, a new place opened in London: DriDri! This brand new gelateria is worth the trip believe me 🙂

What’s different?
