Some of you may know from my Instagram feed that I recently took a two week trip to Japan with my boyfriend and I should let you know that this has been a place that we have been longing to visit for some time now and I was beyond excited to realise my Japanese dream, if only for two weeks. This trip had been at least a year in the making (and several years of dreaming) before we finally touched down in the madness that is Tokyo.

Lately, I’ve been going back to basics and learning how to make the simple things from scratch.

Living in London means that I have access to more restaurants that I can ever get around to eating at but, in 2015, I have given it my best shot to get in as many meals as my budget will allow. I’ve managed to eat my way around London in the past 12 months sampling everything from famous London dishes to the newest street food sensations. From team lunches at Hawksmoor to an amazing birthday dinner at the legendary St. John and lots of street food in between, here are my best London dishes of 2015!
Duck and Waffle – Lobster Creme Brulee, Ox Cheek Doughnut, Duck & Waffle
We went here for our anniversary and both the food and the view (and the company!) were spectacular. If you’re still unsure of the sweet and savoury flavour combination, then Duck and Waffle will definitely convert you. The Lobster Creme Brulee, Ox Cheek Doughnut and the signature dish of Duck and Waffle were all delicious so it’s difficult to choose just one dish from here so I’m selecting all three!
