Uncover Dining & Opera Tavern

Whether it’s a small local establishment to a fine dining restaurant I love eating out. It is one of my favourite things to do but I do get disappointed when I really fancy going somewhere nice and can’t get a table.

I recently came a great new app called Uncover Dining which lets you book last minute tables at awesome places in London on the day. So it’s great when you’re out and about or if you have a last minute date. It lets you book at cute little places and also Michelin starred restaurants.

25 Things Women Won’t Admit They Want

What women want

What women want

Women (and men) get insecure and want certain things from their partners. Sometimes we can’t admit it but we do. I do and I know friends of mine do, I mean I hate straightening my hair so I don’t want a guy to make me straighten my hair.

So I compiled a list of things that women might be embarrassed to admit sometimes that we really do want, we’ll never admit these things but we know it’s true so men take note!

  1. Tell me I look good even when I don’t

It takes more effort for a woman to look good than a guy. A guy will get up and look hot, a woman, not as much (well, unless you look like Mila Kunis who could wear a bag and still look great) so when we’re slobbing in a jumper, leggings, wearing our glasses; tell us that we look good even if we need to brush our hair.

My love for Deepika Padukone

If anyone knows me they will know, well, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Indian film actress Deepika Padukone – she’s pretty but I didn’t think she would make the statement she has of late. However over the past couple of months has has completely changed for the better.

We all face tough times, we pretend to be strong but no-one knows what is going on inside of us. Whether it is work stress, heartbreak or health issues we all have to put on a brave face and embrace the world with a smile but when you’re in the public eye as much as an A-List celebrity like Deepika Padukone is, but you’re just crying from the inside, speaking out about that is hard. Recently Deepika did just that and spoke about how she faced depression and that all she wanted to do was stay in bed and cry.

Dhaba Lane – review

Dhaba Lane

Dhaba Lane

Website – http://www.dhabalane.com/ Twitter – https://twitter.com/DhabaLane Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/DhabaLane

Dhaba is a name for roadside café’s in India and Pakistan which serve hearty and wholesome, often Punjabi, food. They’re a truck-drivers preferred choice of stop off and I was headed to a London equivalent of a Dhaba.

It’d been a little while since I was invited to check out the newly-opened Dhaba Lane situated on Leonard Street in trendy Shoreditch. I was invited by co-founder Upma Arora to sample their lunchtime delights for some healthy Indian cuisine. It was a sunny Tuesday and I’d been in town for some meetings so decided to pop and visit Dhaba Lane. The establishment is tucked away underground on Leonard Street, about a 7 minute walk from Old Street station but also accessible from Shoreditch High Street and Liverpool Street stations. Keep an eye out for the brightly-coloured Dhaba Lane sign outside.

Martyn, a friend of mine from school recently went travelling around the Far East and recorded this awesome video of him teaching kids how to speak ‘Nottingham’ – yes there is such a thing! Have a go and send me your videos!

Saravana Bhavan – Review

A fairly short post for you here and I’ve decided not to rate as this is more just me sharing my love for Saravana Bhavan (plus I’m a little biased by my love of the Dosa). All over the world this vegetarian restaurant chain is well-known to one and all across the world. Actually, that is a lie, I didn’t know about it until I moved to London and a boy introduced me to it (thanks dude!) but then I realised that EVERYONE knew about it. Where have I been? Anyway, Saravana Bhavan has quick become a fave of mine to get me my dosa fix and I don’t think anywhere does a tastier, crispier dosa! Even my friend is San Francisco knows of the place and loves it! Recently, post a TV appearance, Rita Morar and I took a trip to the South Indian restaurant (they are dotted all over London but we frequented the Rayners Lane branch) and decided to indulge in some South Indian tasti-ness. Here are a few of my faves and a description of them:
