Bird, Camden

I’ve been to Bird several times, trying different things. My first selection was the Classic Burger, which remains my favourite. Simple, tasty, and importantly, worth the money. I also tried the chicken wings at this point, but in comparison with the burger, they were underwhelming. The next time I visited I went full on with…

Our Cornish Pasty Shop, Brighton

I frequented this place quite a lot when I lived in Brighton, and usually got the Mexican pasty. I liked that it had some kick and was a bit more interesting than beef and potato, but it didn’t taste specifically like any Mexican dish I know of, and the flavour wasn’t exceptional compared to a…

Pizza East, Shoreditch

Pizza East is impressive before you even get any food because the place is massively spacious. The building totally contrasts with Pizza Pilgrims, which was small and had people packed together to an uncomfortable degree. Pizza East could be described as sprawling. We were given a time limit of an hour and a half, which I…

Connor’s Burrito List

In which I rank all the burrito places that I have tried in London, to make sense of my own opinions and rankings and perhaps help a few people out. Benito’s hat The Burrito itself must be the best I have ever had. It tasted like a classic Burrito, with a sauce that is a…

Burger Bothers, Brighton

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, the cliche goes. When I went to Brighton recently and Burger Brothers was closed since it was Sunday, I felt huge pangs, but I also realised it is literally impossible for me to feel any fonder of the place. They make my favourite burgers, and probably my favourite tasting thing…

Pizza Pilgrims, Soho

Walking into Pizza Pilgrims, the first things I noticed were: pizzas were being made in front of us which is always glorious to witness, and it was packed. People were squeezing past each other to get to the small winding stairs which, unsurprisingly, did not lead to a massive open hall.The atmosphere wasn’t bad, it…

Brew Dog, Sheffield

Brew Dog stood out along Devonshire street due to its dark, sleek exterior. The concept of a bar that only serves craft beer intrigued me as I am not a huge fan of beer, however I do enjoy the odd pale ale now and then. I believe it’s always good to try new things, so…

Chipotle, Soho

I’d had a couple of Burrito’s in America from cool little markets that felt really hip to be in, but they didn’t impress me in terms of taste. Chipotle is what finally got me into the things, even though they are the most common chain in the whole of the States. Most food places I yearn…

Thakers, Hounslow

Tucked away on a side road in Hounslow sits Thakers, a vegetarian Indian street food place. The first thing that drew me there was just how modern it looks, and the food did not disappoint. I have gone for the Paneer Tikka Massala twice, the first time out of being afraid of the immense choice on display, and the…

Benito’s Hat, Soho

If you like Burritos at all, trying Benito’s Hat is essential. The Burrito itself must be the best I have ever had. It tastes like a classic Burrito, with a sauce that is a cut above the rest, with something in there (maybe spring onion) giving it a different sort of kick. The complimentary chips they give…
