A couple of minutes walk from The Strand, lies the new scrumptious venture from Ennismore – the very very gorgeous Tandoor Chop House – a collision of a classic British chop house and a North Indian communal eatery…

Covent Garden’s
Ultimate Street Food Market

Poppy Loves Covent Garden

Last week, Miranda and I sauntered on down to Covent Garden to witness and indulge in the ‘Ultimate Street Food Market’.

Both of us adore street food. And love markets. And we also have a real passion for excellent food and wonderful London restaurants…  What we hadn’t banked on was all of these things colliding in an delicious foodie explosion right in the heart of Covent Garden, on King Street, on a Thursday night. This is all part of #CGAfterHours, taking part very Wednesday – Saturday in July.

Hot Chocolate To Die For & Catch Ups
at Ladurée, Covent Garden

Ladurée-Covent Garden-7 I love hot chocolate. I believe I found the best hot chocolate in Paris when I was there, I know where to hunt down a mean hot choc in Barcelona too… so it’s only fair that I let you into my secret of where to find one of the best hot chocolates in London.

And I do not do this lightly – it’s already quite tricky to get table when you want one.

Tredwell's - Marcus Wareing's newest restaurant in Covent Garden

I don’t think I have ever begun a post with such a large piece of meat at the helm of it. But I couldn’t not whack it up there because just LOOK at it. And it you can believe it, it tasted even better than it looks. And that seems to be the running theme at Tredwell’s – everything looks amazing, but it tastes even better.

Ena Salon, Holborn

Ena Salon, Holborn

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to have my locks lopped off by the Scissor Ninjas at Ena Salon in Holborn. I leapt at the chance. Not just because it was voted one of the top five salons in London by Tatler last year, but because I was so overdue a haircut – my split ends had been screaming for attention for weeks and I’m sure had started plotting a revolution.

City of Angels at The Donmar

Yesterday, I was a VERY lucky girl. I found myself at the Donmar Warehouse for a matinée (a MATINÉE! On a Wednesday!) of the critically acclaimed ‘City of Angels’ – the 80’s musical created by Cy Coleman (music) Larry Gilbert (writer – you’ll know him from M*A*S*H and Tootsie) and David Zippel (lyricist).

Deck chairs in Brighton

Last week I found the above picture in my camera roll, which I’d completely forgotten about. I few weeks ago I was in Brighton and this is a pic I snapped just before the sun started going down… I love it. It’s so quintessentially English and makes me feel warm and nostalgic inside… my grandparents sat on Brighton beach and took in this very view… and I suspect many of yours did too…

I love Modern Family. I mean, I REALLY love Modern Family. It makes me laugh from my belly. And it’s the kind of show that makes me laugh in the middle of the night, when I remember something ridiculous that Cam said. Ha! Luckily, I am not alone in loving this peculiar bunch – there are many people like me, chuckling away to themselves on sofas all over the land…

Treading the boards

 

It’s a bit bamboozling how much there is to see and do in London, so I love it when someone takes charge. An old school pal of mine (they’re the best ones) could put the MI6 to shame with her organisational skills. It was down to her that a gaggle of us were standing outside The Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden at 6pm sharp and not in Mac. Nor in Urban Outfitters. Impressive. 

 
Off we went for a swift ‘sherbert’, (her words not mine. I like it) which wasn’t that swift. In fact several sherberts were had by a few of our rabble and it’s a miracle we managed to walk in a straight line back to the Donmar for the show.
 
We were there to see ‘Passion’ by Sondheim. I had no idea what to expect and the story completely engulfed me. Set in 19th century Italy, this musical is no light hearted romp. Subjects include obsession, beauty, power, manipulation, passion, illness and love and with its impressive score, intelligent set and (slightly freaky) powerful story, I was sucked in from the get go. I loved it, despite having to peek through my fingers in one bit. (Pathetic Poppy).
 
If you can get tickets – go. Although, if you have a stalker, you may not want to. Also if you have long legs they might go to sleep as leg room isn’t muchly and there is no interval.
