We love trying out new bars and restaurants, but we also have some tried and true places that we love to go to for date nights. Gordon’s Wine Bar: Embankment/Charing Cross Believe it or not on my first trip to London from the US back in 2006, my secondary school pointed out Gordon’s and said it was one of her favourite places in the city. Who would have thought then that I would...
The Draft House (Northcote Road)
One-half of London Foodies had been trying to get the other half of London Foodies to go to the Draft House since we moved to the area in October.

Kappacasein of Borough Market
The US classic grilled Cheese or as the Brits called it ‘toasted cheese’ or ‘cheese on toast’ is my absolute favourite food ever. All of my friends make fun of me for my love of anything that includes bread and cheese. In the US, grilled cheese is really trendy with food trucks and grilled cheese restaurants offering gourmet options. Unfortunately, this trend hasn’t...
