Patty & Bun Review, Liverpool Street, London

wpid-1020153.jpg

We finally made our way to try the famous burger joint of Patty and Bun. We’ve been putting it off for a little while because we didn’t want to wait for ages in queue for our meal. Going on a weekday seem like the most sensible choice for such a small and popular little restaurant. We turned up at the Liverpool Street branch at about 7:30pm. This branch is much smaller than the one in Central London as it’s more fast food, takeaway style. We managed to get ourselves onto one of the few tables they had. There were a […]

We recently discovered , a local Japanese restaurant that serves delicious food at a very affordable price. The presentation may not be super world class, but it’s definitely acceptable for the price mark. The most important thing of all is the quality of the food, which I’ll give 5 stars.

My favourite thing about this place is that it’s walkable distance from our flat and they do delivery! What more can I ask for? Just […]

The name is a little misleading as it gives the impression that they only serve noodles (it probably did when it first started). We went just a bit after lunch on a Sunday so the place was pretty empty. I’m not sure how busy it gets during lunch and dinner hours. We each got […]

Essencious-Juice-Diet-Fruit-Vegetable

I’ve decided to start a juice detox/diet to cleanse my body and lose some weight at the same time. I’ve been preparing myself for a little while by cutting down on food consumption. My grocery shopping last night consist of vegetables, fruits, a juicer and some airtight water bottles. Lots of vegetables and fruits As soon as I got home with all the bits, I made a green juice right away to test it out. I put in two apples, half a cucumber, two celery sticks, a cup of spinach, a small slice of ginger and a half a lime. […]

You are about to embark on another food review with me. Just a word of warning, if you’re hungry right now and love ramen then you might not want to scroll down too far. Onto the review….
