Podcast Episode 29 – Balls Brothers Mayfair

Please click below to listen to my review of the relaunch of the Balls Brothers in Mayfair. Good solid food in a drinking establishment.

Be aware the place was pretty loud – it was very busy early on and later the lights went down and the music up.

Worth dropping by after work, but not a place for a special trip. The wine list was a touch disappointing, very predictable and nothing by the glass that jumped out as interesting.

Podcast Episode 28 Foxlow Soho Review

Please click below for my podcast review of Foxlow Soho which opened recently and had a soft launch with a 50% off food deal

I had a lovely meal here. The squid for starter, and the fried chicken and chicken burger were really excellent. The lamb was really good as well – I love salt marsh lamb. We had issues over the amount of time it took us to get our mains, though they know why it happened and it’s something they can address. Less good was my friend’s steak, which was not very good to start with, and came out over-cooked. They made up for it in spades though, with free drinks, a replacement main course and a new steak.

We didn’t get to try the desserts, but the cocktails were good. I had a Tom Collins, which I think could have been a bit sweeter and lemony-er. The others I had a sip of were really excellent.

Not many photos I’m afraid – too busy eating!

Podcast Episode 26 – Sakagura Piccadilly Review

Please click below for the Sakagura Piccadilly Restaurant Review Podcast where I try out the Lobster Ramen in conjunction with Shoryu and a couple of other dishes.

I enjoyed the ramen, but thought it was a little expensive at full price, especially when you can go to Tonkotsu or Bone Daddies just a few minutes’ walk away.

The duck yakitori was lovely, especially with the sweet plum sauce counterbalanced with the sharp lemony spice rub. Also good were the pork gyoza, which were well cooked and delicate in flavour. I’m not sure that it’s as good as Roka, considering it’s about the same price, but it’s not too far away.

The photos are below, please let me know what you think in the comments at the bottom of the page.

 

Podcast Episode 25 – Stoke House Victoria Review

Please click below for the Stoke House Victoria Review Podcast. Recommended – the food was good and I like the carvery layout. The hot sides were good, but the cold sides were only ok.

Here are the pictures I took from the evening.

Podcast Episode 23 – Temper Soho Sunday Lunch Review

We visited Temper for Sunday lunch and came away very disappointed. Click the link below to find out why!

In short, we were way understaffed for the number that we were, the food was cold and the vegetable portions were miserly. for £20, there are so many better places for Sunday lunch.

 

 

Podcast Episode 22 – Plaquemine Lock Islington Review

Please click below to listen to my Plaquemine Lock Islington Review

I have mixed feelings about Plaquemine Lock. I like the idea of Creole & Cajun food but I found the implementation rather hit & miss. Some of the food was really great, others didn’t deliver, either on taste, but mostly on value. The cocktails were very good, and pretty good value. Pictures below, and if you have any thoughts please let me know on the form at the bottom.

 

Podcast Episode 21 – Wayne Mueller @ Blues Kitchen Brixton

Please click below for my Wayne Mueller at Blues Kitchen Review.

Blues Kitchen may be the restaurant I’ve been to most in London. I was a regular for lunch when I worked near one, and I really rate a lot of their food. I jumped at the chance to visit the Brixton Branch for a very special night on the 27th April 2017. Wayne Mueller of legendary Central Texas barbecue joint Louis Mueller Barbecue was doing a one night only cook. Wish I’d taken more pictures, but I was far too busy eating!
