Hlemmur Mathöll – Reykjavik, Iceland

On our first night in Reykjavik, having made no food-related plans, we asked the front desk lady at our hotel for some recommendations. Eateries in Reykjavik can get busy (it was a Saturday evening) and EXPENSIVE. Actually eating out anywhere in Iceland is not cheap, so we were curious to see what a local would […]

Four Seasons – Chinatown, London

Chinatown can be awfully overwhelming the first time you visit. Condensed around six blocks in one of the busiest areas of London, it is packed with people, restaurants, various odours (some pleasant some not), it is very noisy, and could trigger a sensory overload for pretty much anyone. Yet it is home to real foodie […]

Brockley’s Rock – London

I used to never think much about fish and chips, I always considered it to be the British take on fast and easy food. Often the ones I had were too greasy, the fish too dry or the chips too mushy. I was only eating fish and chips when there was nothing else appealing on […]

We therefore take any opportunities […]

No50 Friendly Street – London

Another day and another nice coffee shop to work from in London. This time we are back in Lewisham. In the very residential streets of St Johns, you would never guess that you would find a place like No50 Friendly Street. I first came across it on a walk to Deptford Market. It is one […]

The Attendant Shoreditch – London

London is full of trendy coffee shops where hipster teenagers, creative freelancers and bohemian families meet to eat, drink and relax. Just like any Londoner, I am a sucker for places like these where my creative juices get flowing, the Wifi is decent and the food very instagrammable. The Attendant in Shoreditch is exactly that. […]

Dirty South – London

You will find Dirty South squeezed between the Lewisham and Blackheath borders. From the outside, it looks like a regular up-and-coming London pub. Industrial decor, dark coloured walls, twenty to thirty-something clientele. Dirty South has a strong backstory though, in 2011 it was one of the many places trashed during the London riots. Thankfully Lewisham […]
