The Meat Co II

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to dine at The Meat Co. Formerly known as the Meat & Wine Co., you all know that I have been to eat here numerous times.  This is time I learnt a little more about the company and was able to meet with the manager.

The Halal Food Festival

For the first time in London’s history, the Excel centre will be holding London’s very own Halal Food Festival. Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the Muslim population grow to over 2.7 million people. This is a whopping potential of halal-eating individuals to cater for. The halal industry has boomed with halal meat […]


Everyone has one of those lists of classic fail-safe restaurants that is turned to when in need. Mine seems to be exceptionally long and I tend to have moments where I will visit the same restaurant more than five times in a month; I can’t help it – once my trust has been earned, I’m the number one fan. […]


When friends or relatives visit from abroad, there’s only one place I send them, Camden Market. Be it a 50 year old or a 5 year old, Camden is one of my most favourite places in London. You’ll find everything there from vintage clothing to scrumptious street food, so you can’t go wrong in NW. […]

Red Iron Burgers Part II

A couple of weeks back, I made a new friend who goes by the name of BW.  Since then I like to challenge him with just about everything – mensa tests, mini golf, wii tennis etc. And as far as my competitive nature goes, I’ve lost everything that I have challenged him against. My pride […]

Novikov – Asian

Being the eldest or the youngest child has its perks: You are the most loved in the household, you get away with everything and anything, and everyone listens to you and what you want is what you get. However, there is always a downside and I’m afraid to say that being the youngest means being […]


Occasionally, I get in the mood to get a major sugar high or cause a few holes in my teeth, and what better way to satisfy this sweet craving than to pay a visit to a dessert parlour. Not wanting my thighs to experience gluco-heaven alone, I managed to drag JA along with me as […]


For a while, I’ve been craving dim sum – halal dim sum to be exact. I did not know this existed as I’ve always had to eat the fish or vegetarian dim sum and to be honest, knowing it can come in so many more varieties just made the meal less satisfying in non-halal Chinese […]

Bone Daddies

**The fried chicken items are cooked in the same oil as non-halal items so please avoid the fried items** I have a feeling this post may cause some sort of controversy as to how you fellow readers approach my blog and any future posts I publish. Usually, my food reviews are of restaurants that consist […]


Despite being a food blogger, I always tend to be the last one to find out about new and upcoming halal restaurants. I guess I’m not with the “in-crowd” just yet, but I do have the resources to eventually find out about a restaurant – sadly at times it is months after it has officially […]
