I’ve become completely obsessed with the salad boxes from Sunny’s Olive Tree at Whitecross Market. They’re delicious, healthy, & cheap! I get the small salad box & bread w/ extra chili olives & feta cheese for £3.50! The small box is enough to fill me up, but they have a larger option too. They mix everything together, but you can add or take away the different...
We asked our followers on twitter for suggestions for a good place to grab british food in London. @FelicitySpector suggested The Albion in Islington so we decided to check it out. It was a bit of the walk from the tube, but totally worth it. The Albion, situated in a quiet area, is full of charm and has plenty of seating including a large garden area. We were seated in a cute little nook in the...
Meter Bar & Eatery
Meter Bar & Eatery just opened on City Road near Old Street Tube Station. They do delicious pizza by the meter baked in a wood-burning stove! We tried out the Uno (tomato, mozzarella, & basil) and the Cinque (aubergine, parmesan, tomato, mozzarella, ricotta, & basil). It was some of the best pizza that we’ve had and we’ll definitely be going back! Some of their other...

We’ve been wanting to check out the Avalon near Clapham South for awhile now so we decided to go for our weekly Sunday roast. We loved the decor in the dining room and thought it had a great Sunday afternoon vibe. Our meal started out with a bowl of tomato and basil soup with a slice of toasted bread, which was the perfect compliment to the wind and rain outside. We had the Locksdrove...

Powder Keg Diplomacy
We venture up to St. John’s Hill quite often, but never really go beyond the Plough. Luckily on Saturday we did and discovered Powder Keg Diplomacy. Not only did we love the food, but we also loved the decor! If we could get their interior designer to come do our flat we’d be in heaven!! Their decor is Victorian with a modern feel. And their attention to detail was amazing, not only in...
Osteria Antica Bologna
After living up in Camden Town for the past year we moved down to the Clapham area and have been slowly, but surely eating our way through the area. Last night we ended up at Osteria Antica Bologna. We’ve passed by the place tons of times, but it’s always looked full so we never stopped in. Since we were having an early dinner we managed to grab some seats in the back room we...
