    Fusion 14

    Viajante Revisited (CLOSED)

    It was probably the most intriguing restaurant opening last year. It generated a polarising reception, ranging from those who hailed Nuno Mendes’ travelling fusion food as groundbreaking to others who thought it a purely self indulgent public experiment, injected with an unhealthy dose of pretense. When I visited last summer, ...

    The Henry Root : Potential, but…no.

    On paper, this two month old wine bar in Fulham road reads like a winner. A laid back, well decked out bistro atmosphere, a dedicated and extensive wine list and a grazing Anglo-French menu, with fancy charcuterie made in-house and otherwise sourced from artisans in Beaujolais. The Henry Root, like Brawn, are derivatives of the hugely popular Terroirs wine bar in Charing ...

    Zafferano : Classic Italian Institution.

    If ever there was a restaurant synonymous with the term institution, that restaurant could well be Zafferano. Entering its sixteenth year of service, it is regarded by all of us, as one of the key purveyors of high Italian cuisine, in London. It boasts a fancy postcode, the single macaron from the Bib, as well as about a dozen or so blogposts ...

    La Goulette : Memories from the Tunisian Coast

    Shortly after my visit to (probably) the first authentically Tunisian restaurant to open in London, I went on Wikipedia to read about the history of modern day Carthage, and the variety of its sun-kissed cuisine. There has been a movie made about La Goulette – the diminutive port town – titled “A Summer in La Goulette” that tells the tale of three ...

    The Unbloggable Meals.

    I eat alot throughout the year, and keep the material back to build a backlog of posts, but for a number of reasons, I tend to forget posting about them, or more accurately, there are better things to blog about, at the time. So as I have only just ...

    Dishoom : Bombay Classy.

    This restaurant opened to rave reviews by gluttons across London in summer, staking their claim as the very first all day diner in London to be modeled after Bombay cafes. I’ve never been to Bombay, but those who have tried the genuine article (like Guy ...
