Student Eats: Hare and Tortoise

Read More

Hare & Tortoise is one of my favourite restaurants in London and they serve some of the best Asian foods – I love their dragon rolls! From the outside, the Blackfriars branch of Hare & Tortoise doesn’t look too great. In fact, when you enter it’s just empty, but then you walk down a tunnel of stairs and it’s very pretty. It smells amazing as soon as you enter, and you…

Foley’s Tasting Kitchen Menu

Read More

London is filled with pop ups. Pop up markets, burger joints and even pop up restaurants! I’ve discovered the coolest new pop up in West London and you need to try it. It’s called Foley’s Tasting Kitchen and it’s only opened until March 20th! That’s right, a short but sweet length of time, right during term time so you can indulge when you have no desire to cook/eat a meal…

The Happenstance

Read More

You know those evenings where you can’t be bothered to go home and cook and wish there was a place close to uni where you could go and enjoy a nice meal that won’t break the bank? Well I found that place and it’s called the Happenstance. It’s only a 15-minute walk from LSE, right next to Saint Paul’s Cathedral. It’s filled with City workers who need a drink after…

Sharing is Caring: My experience as a Food Cycle Volunteer

Read More

What if I told you that there is a way to stop people from starving? What if I told you that this way doesn’t require more from you than giving away what you would otherwise throw away? That you can take something you don’t care about anyway and use it to save a life. Just the other Sunday I did what you might not even think of doing. I cooked…

Recipe: When Healthy Met Tasty  Tofu is like that awful sweater your aunt bought you for Christmas: you learn to love it. My parents absolutely detest tofu, and I wasn’t always a big fan of it to be honest. I mean, it’s gooey, has a strange texture and has virtually NO taste whatsoever. Why on earth would I eat it? The answer is quite simple, young grasshopper: one needs to…

Deliciously Cheap Eats in London

Read More

We all love London, except for one thing: it’s too damn expensive. The city is bursting with things to do, but we never feel like we can enjoy said things because…well…we’re all broke. Fear not, I have the solution for you. Believe it or not, there are places where you can have dinner in London that are relatively cheap and, more importantly, delicious.  To all you international students who just…

Did I really need to buy a blender for freshers?

Read More

My new Breville Blend Active Blender – complete with a 57 smoothie recipe book – has been sitting patiently in the corner of my bedroom for three days now, counting down the days before my start at LSE. I can already anticipate the number of times I will undoubtedly use its seven speed settings and superseal leak proof lid. When staggering back to my halls at god-knows-what-hour, I can already…

REVIEW: Herman Ze German, Soho

Read More

Neraj Thangarajah – Food Editor German cuisine is often overlooked, with few claiming to have ever tried it and others often expressing little interest in it. It’s a real shame that the country is represented so poorly among these shores with regards to its culinary history, even if somewhat stereotypically. Focusing our attention on London in particular, which has lately been hit with street food fever it is surprising to…
