Damn the day this store opened next to my flat!!!
As promised on my first Aladin experience a couple months ago and as soon as I had some friend visiting me in London, I brought them again to this place.
Who ever said traditional marketing is dead never had a walk on Upper Street and passed through Romeu’s sugar-free bakery!
Not everything is pink and has a happy ending in this blog. This attractive place ended up not being as good as I expected.

A Thai restaurant visit without ordering fish! Now that’s a first on this blog!
I used to advocate that “if a restaurant needs a 3rd party to promote vouchers and similar deals… they’re food is probably not good enough to sell itself!” … well I was wrong (yes, it happens now and then) and I’ve been surprised in London many times!

If you are a food enthusiast, do yourself a favour and check some of the deals websites once in a while. They come in handy, in particular for foodies living in London! They are another alternative to save some quids and hit some fancier places. Usually, the vouchers have a long expiration date so there’s no need to rush and you can plan ahead. While sometimes they’re not cheap, they’ll give you the best quality/price ratio for that expensive restaurant you’re dying to go..
My food experience on this Jamie Oliver was short but literally very sweet!
Awww.. hosting friends in London – great stuff… sometimes! Definitely not when your friends are so demanding of where and what they want to eat. So, my mission? To find a good, non-expensive place to eat sushi in Soho (Good and non-expensive sushi in London? aw… tourists! So cute!)
Hello there Vietnamese food – I wonder where have you been all my life?!
OK, I ADMIT IT! This one I went for the appearance and size… I’m only human… a glutton one!
If you’re a Japanese aficionado and you also follow the food trends of London, you probably have stumbled upon a Peruvian restaurant. So why not the have the best of the two worlds? Introducing Nikkei food: The perfect marriage between Sashimi & Ceviche.

Keep an eye on London’s food venues social media channels. Twitter, Facebook or whatever network they are, just follow them! I do NOT have the sort of money to be spending on Michelin star restaurants… yet you stumble upon discounts quite often.
I always thought the Michelin star biz to be a rich people propaganda move. I get that a restaurant deserves some recognition to distinguish it from others – fair enough. But 2 stars? I mean, what on earth can you bring more on my plate that would make you a 2 star?! Apparently… a lot!
After a couple years, I finally had the chance to have my favourite bread again – THANK YOU!
I have to admit it, I have been avoiding this desert for a long time… I mean bread pudding? That sounds like some expired bread soaked in some gross thingy… wrong!
An OK but definitely not memorable experience.
I’ll cut up to the chase. This is an amazing place and I fell in love for it.
