My Year in... Food

This is the one we’ve all been waiting for right? Food! It’s no secret that I love to eat out and I know this year I’ve tried my best to negotiate ‘affordable delicious’. It’s so easy to read blogs where people are all oysters and cash, but quite frankly, that’s not my life and I couldn’t afford to live like that!! So here’s my best of food this year – places I think we can all go and enjoy good quality, purse friendly treats. I’ve added in the links to any full posts just for you guys too.

I love trying out new places but as a creature of habit there are a few old faithful’s that I go back to time and time again. When I’m in Soho I’ve been known to go to Tuscanic at all times of day and night (in all states, the poor staff!). Proper Italian food made for people who just love bread, meat and cheese. Anything Street Feast is, as with many bloggers and foodies, my favourite outdoor eating venue –  The Power of Summer was one of my favourite evenings out in the summer and I’m so excited for Hawker House this winter. Moving North, Cobbles and Clay is perfect country food. Warm, comforting and healthy – like a big hug on a cold day. A little more upmarket, Social Eating House is my go to for a fancy dinner. It’s the kind of place you go to with your parents but, super cool and ‘trendy’. OLO in Helsinki was possibly my favourite dining experience of the year; I don’t think I’ve ever eaten food quite like it. Has anyone else ever eaten grated frozen salmon? My number one however, as we all should know by now, is The Advisory. These guys have blown me away with how excellent their food is. Getting to Hackney isn’t always the easiest but this place makes it so, so worth it. The staff are amazing, the food (they do more than burgers) is second to none and they make a bloody brilliant Whiskey Sour. I love it there and that’s all there is to say!

Now, that’s it for my round ups. It’s been overwhelming the amount of you getting in touch (in the best way) and you’ve armed me with lists on lists of amazing music and books, so thank you. It really  is appreciated and so great to chat to you. This blog has been quite the labour of love this last 12 months and I love getting to know you better and having new friends from across the world!
Let’s hope 2015 brings as much good stuff and, keep in touch!
