The Restaurant Chain Wagamama is one of the biggest names synonymous with Japanese cuisine in the UK. In fact, it has it’s roots firmly in Britain; the first ever restaurant was opened in Bloomsbury, London, in 1992. Since then, the brand has exploded and boasts more than 140 restaurants. The vast majority of these are…

Hummus Bros – Hummus Bowl with Tabouleh and Falafel

Hummus Bros is somewhere I frequent when I am around central London. It is a fast food restaurant providing a healthy, quick and affordable food option in a simple setting. On this occasion, I went to their Soho branch – nestled in the bustle of Wardour Street. I have had their hummus bowls a few…

Pho Restaurant – Shredded Chicken Salad

I visited Pho for lunch today…it is a Vietnamese fast food chain. I think I had the hot & spicy chicken noodle broth last time. I don’t even know why I got it…I know I don’t like noodle-y soups. For me, noodles taste good coated in a lovely sauce – not dropped into a watery broth….

Tortilla prides itself as creating and serving ‘California-style burritos and tacos’ – whatever that means… To…

Gourmet Burger Kitchen – GBK

I have fallen in love with this place again. I didn’t think it could be healthy, but actually the ‘bunless’ option for 50p extra is actually not too bad for you – plus it is quite filling.  The bun gets replaced with homeslaw (think coleslaw but with a vinaigrette instead of calorific mayo) and you get…
