July Foodie Highlights

Leave a Comment
Holy heat wave. 

Apart from gaining a beer belly from too many sunny days in the garden drinking beers, these were my July best bits:

Smoked and Uncut, Limewood 
It ain’t summer without plastic pints, portaloo’s and live music in a field. I had the best time at Smoked and Uncut festival at Limewood. Read about here all here.

Frida Kahlo Boozy Brunch, Leicester Square Kitchen
Ok boozy brunchers this is certainly one to watch. Forget eggs on toast, hello Mexican small plates and bottomless prosecco, all in favour of The Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up exhibition at The V&A this summer. Salud! 

Jamaica Street Stores, Bristol
No matter how hot it is, us Brits are always up for a roast. (the food kind and the sunburn kind…) Jamaica Street Stores in Bristol does a cracking pork roast and makes you leave wanting all of the hanging plants for your house. 

Hip Chips, Soho
Being a grown up can sometimes be shitty, except when it comes to choosing when YOU want to go to bed and choosing what YOU want for dinner, even if it is crisps, dip and prosecco. Hip Chips in Soho specialises in just that, which is my actual dream. You can choose from sweet or savoury crisps and accompanying dips (we did a mix of both) and they also introduce new dips every month to change it up, for August you will find Jamaican Jerk and Banana Mousse alongside all the classic ones. TIP: this would be an EXCELLENT place for a date. 

Dinerama, Shoreditch 
I visited London a couple of years ago and tried Yum Bun at Dinerama, now whenever I think of steamed buns I think back to that glorious moment. Very happy to be reunited with these delicious fluffy buns of joy. HIGHLY recommend the tofu and pork belly ones.

Black Lab Coffee, Clapham Common
Clapham, you have excelled in latte's and banana bread.

Roe & Co Whiskey
Add a couple of chunky ice cubes, a splash of ginger beer and a squeeze of fresh lime for a fiery tipple like no other. Slainte! 

Brompton Food Market, South Kensington 
The cutest little deli tucked away in South Kensington with an impressive salad selection and overpriced chutneys. SOLD. 

I'm off to Lisbon this month, pleaseee send me your recommendations on Instagram. I'm in search of the best wine bars and custard tarts!
