Wright Bros Battersea – Delicious Food & Great Atmosphere

Ellie and I did some inline skating in Battersea Park a few weeks ago, and we decided to take the long route back via Nine Elms in order to check out the new sky pool at Embassy Gardens. This is when we stumbled across Wright Bros’ Battersea restaurant. So far we had only visited their Borough Market location. Three Locations, all in London Our Borough Market experience had been very pleasant, so we decided to give Wright Bros, Battersea, a shot. (They also have a restaurant in South Kensington.) We were seated on the lovely terrace with views of Battersea Power Station, the Thames, and the park-like embankment and piers with lots of vegetables, a fountain, more restaurants and shops, and a few food stalls. We sucked in the atmosphere while scrolling through the menu.   I know what you’re having Ms B laughed, “I know what you’re having” as […]

“MAAD – Plant Based” just opened their second vegan take-away

Ellie & I got the munchies last night. We felt like burgers. Five Guys, whom we used to love, had disappointed us too many times during the past year and none of the other big chains had done much for us lately. So we ended up ordering vegan burgers for the first time in a while. We had not heard about “MAAD – Plant Based” before, but the food on all their pictures on Deliveroo looked delectable. A quick google search revealed that they had only opened their first take-away in Wood Green a few months ago. “Our” venue in Strutton Ground, half-way between Victoria Station and Westminster Palace, a minute’s walk from St James’s Park tube station, was their second venue and brand-new. Three more burger joints are going to open within the next few months in Hackney, Richmond, and Ilford, an amazing success story so far.   We […]

Ebury by Fat Macy’s take-away – Good food and love the idea

We recently heard about a new opening in the area called Abbots Manor, kind of where Chelsea, Belgravia and Pimlico meet, half way between Victoria Station and Chelsea Bridge on Ebury Bridge Road. I decided to stop by and check it out on one of my recent morning runs. The large, wooden, turquoise building sits just opposite London’s by far biggest recent development, the Chelsea Barracks. It’s impossible to miss it. Ebury by Fat Macy’s opened about two months ago during the Covid lockdown. Due to the pandemic, they only offer take-away for now, and only a reduced menu focused on breakfast, lunch and coffee. I was the only customer at the time and was greeted very friendly by the two staff, who assisted me in choosing the right dishes for myself while I was sipping a pretty decent flat white (£2.40). I opted for the spiced akkawi cheese sandwich […]

Berners Tavern – We are starting to warm up to this former favourite of ours again

This upmarket restaurant in Berners Street in Central London’s Fitzrovia used to be our go-to place for Sunday brunch for a few months, until we had several bad experiences in a row. Rude staff, long waits, and major cock-ups on the food, to name just a few of the issues. So for a whole year we avoided Berners Tavern. A few months ago, a couple we’re friends with suggested we meet up there, and we were curious, so agreed to the location. We’ve been back for brunch two more times after that, and overall we enjoyed ourselves each time. Located inside boutique hotel inventor Ian Schrager’s Edition Hotel, the main dining hall is one of the most beautiful spaces on the London restaurant scene. Two huge chandeliers, inspired by the ones in New York City’s Grand Central station, dangle from the nearly 6m tall ceilings, counteracting the pompousness of the […]

Ivy Victoria – pleasant enough, like all Ivy Brasseries

I recently checked out the new Ivy Victoria. Already when you enter the premises, you can see references to the mothership like stained glass, retro floor tiles, plenty of brass and some wooden panelling. I sat down at the bar and studied a curious poster to the wall on my right that explained the order of the different royal orders, information that can always come in handy, often in the most unexpected situations. After a quick look at the menu I opted for the salmon and smoked haddock fish cake with crushed pea and herb sauce, a poached egg, and watercress for £14.50 and a non-alcoholic mocktail called Beet It, which, you guessed it, was mainly beetroot-based (with some added lemon, ginger, and apple juice) for £4.50. My pie arrived after less than ten minutes, which is great, because most people who come here for lunch don’t have any time […]
