my dining companion laughed and asked me if I'd ever been able to eat dim sum anywhere else since. It's fair to say that Yauatcha has a reputation for being one of the finest dim sum teahouses in London and I'd be lying if I said I didn't say yes to absolutely every opportunity to eat there....

seats no more than about 15, is intimate to say the least, but designed to reflect the concept of eating in an actual home. One family sized table occupies the window, with two smaller tables off to the right taking up the remaining space. So, as you can imagine, timing is everything when...

Everything we know and love about Soho is shifting East, or are at least opening second homes in the square mile. Yauatcha is the latest to jump on the banker bandwagon. Opening in the heart of The City, Yauatcha has officially become a chain with the addition of the Broadgate Circle...

However, I'm happy to report that Pizza East is marvelous from start to finish. There's just the right bread to cheese to sauce ratio, which makes this a heavenly indulgence for any day of the week. That being said, I think this might just become our regular Sunday engagement. Restaurant...

If you find your eyes wondering around the restaurant as you eat, never fear - that's the intention. The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills has one of the most outstanding contemporary art collections I've ever seen decorating the walls of any restaurant. Paintings from Robert...

My New Year's resolution, to eat a strict diet, was dead and gone - buried beneath a pile of culinary delights, supplied by The Swan. If only I was eating in a culture where one is allowed to pick up their plate and lick it clean (can someone please let me know where that is permitted?), I...

Trust me when I say that the sounds we were making while eating it were definitely giving Meg Ryan a run for her money in When Harry Met Sally. Then there was the spaghetti carbonara. I'm not even sure I can find an appropriate description for what my tastebuds were doing as I placed the fork...

This isn't a dainty eating experience. The portions are large and so incredibly rich that one course alone would satisfy most. Naturally, we went in with eyes that were ten times bigger than our stomachs. When it was suggested we order not three, but four courses, it seemed doable. We were...

The number one question is, rather, all about where to eat, specifically in London. I have found myself in a position where it seems I am the personal tour guide to every tourist coming to the Big Smoke that also happens to follow me on Instagram. Ok, I guess that's no coincidence. They're...

East London in my twenties would have been surreal. Just surreal. But, this new love will hopefully work to your advantage as I discover and write about this part of the world more and more here on FFG. We'll kick off with a bit of an unexpected location in one of London's greenest hotels...
