The South of France, the millionaires playground, isn’t somewhere Elldrew have visited for many years, so we were excited to spend a long weekend there last summer. Based in Cannes we were spoilt for choice when choosing restaurants, but amongst the culinary delights on offer we found our very favourite nestled outside the city in …
Milk Beach Restaurant, Soho
We recently headed to Milk Beach, in the heart of Soho, which is the second London site of this modern Australian all-day dining restaurant.
Kapara Restaurant, Soho
The neon sign of Kapara welcomes you to “A Tel Aviv fantasy”, in much the same font as one used to see outside less salubrious doors also promising a “fantasy” experience. This is Soho so the choice of font is likely to have been intentional but the culinary fantasy promised at Eran Tibi’s (of Bala …
The Black Cow Restaurant, London
We love Middle Eastern food and have been regulars at Machneyuda group’s London outposts (including Coal Office in King’s Cross and Palomar in Soho) since well before the pandemic. We were even known to pop down to Kings Cross for a cheeky Coal Office takeaway in the deepest, darkest days of lockdown, so it’s hardly surprising that we fell …
Thai Beef Salad
One of Drew’s favourite main meal salads is a Thai Beef Salad (closely followed by Duck & Watermelon Salad). This zingy, fresh mint and coriander salad with moorish strips of beef is a fantastic summer dish and after years of testing recipes, we think we’ve found the perfect one.

Marco Polo Restaurant, Rhodes, Greece
The Marco Polo restaurant, located in the Turkish Quarter of Rhodes medieval Old Town, is part of a small family run hotel (Marco Polo Mansion). We had heard it wasn’t the easiest to find, and we can vouch for that – we walked past the door a couple of times as our phone navigation was jumping …

The Sir Richard Steele “Pub to Go”
Ell, a born and bred North Londoner, has seen his fair share of local pubs come and go with the whims of fashion and the in-crowd. Nowhere more so than in Steeles village, Haverstock Hill, once home to the achingly trendy and celeb packed Haverstock Arms and equally notorious Hill. But whilst they may have come …
