Although Shoreditch may seem like it’s for hipsters with handlebar moustaches and corduroy turn-ups, there are in fact some secret gems that you can’t miss out on. Once a bullion truck depot and now a cosy Al Fresco dining extravaganza, East London’s Street Feast Dinerama is the place to go if you’re after amazing street food, a bustling atmosphere and some funky tunes. Grab a killer rum cocktail or sip on some local beer and hustle for a seat at the communal tables. There is something for everyone at Dinerama, as it features 13 vendors with a mix of food and drink from around the world. If you’re after some 10/10 jerk chicken then ‘White Men Can’t Jerk’ is the one for you. £7 for some Jamaican spiced chicken and chips — you can’t go wrong. Or if that doesn’t take your

Restaurant review: L’Arpège, Paris

The house of faith for vegetables. Probably the most divisive restaurant, L’Arpège is a place where you’d either love or hate, no in-between.

When temperatures drop, trips abroad made by UK residents soar. Here are three Southeast Asian travel destinations for a warmer winter. Bleak skies, drizzly winds, occasional bouts of snow — winters in London are always cold and rainy, with the temperatures in December and January averaging between a high of nine degrees and a low of five degrees. With trees shedding their autumn leaves and the afternoon sun beginning to dip earlier, the realisation that winter is settling over London pushes many to make holiday plans abroad. Yvonne Hobden, Head of Retail Marketing at Flight Centre, told Voice of London: "At Flight Centre we know that winter holiday preferences vary from city breaks to sunshine holidays the whole family can enjoy.

Every day is Espresso Day in the UK

We're drinking 95 million cups of coffee a day — and there's definitely a catch. It keeps us from tearing out our hair on our morning commutes and can help us live longer. While most of the UK spends today hitting the high streets, a large part of the population will unknowingly be celebrating another unofficial holiday -- National Espresso Day. But given the UK’s apparent love for coffee, every day may as well be declared as National Espresso Day. According to The British Coffee Association, 95 million cups of coffee are consumed by the country each day. Whether it be a flat white, macchiato, or instant grounds, the coffee bean is responsible for the espresso in our drinks and the caffeine in our veins. The demand for coffee is so high that a 2018 report by the Allegra W
