Butchies

Fried chicken is without a doubt one of my all time favourite foods. Whether it’s in the form of a sandwich, popcorn bites or goujons, the crispy good stuff is high up on my list. So when it came to Butchies, it was a no brainer to head down to check out and see what…

BRAT

If you’re looking for a no frills, casual and relaxed environment, then BRAT fits the profile perfectly. There’s no pretentiousness, no showing off, just fantastic food and drink. The restaurant lies upstairs, right above acclaimed restaurant Smoking Goat and the space is adorned with an open bar and kitchen. A roaring wood fire oven crackling…

Slim Chickens

A mega hit over in the States, Slim Chickens boasts that their food is life changing, set on making its mark and bringing some of that Southern fried goodness to London. A powerful statement indeed, this particular place knocks up crispy, devilish delightful fried chicken and is definitely up there with some of the best I’ve…

Zeret Kitchen

Zeret Kitchen is not in the most glamourous and picturesque part of London but the food is more than worth travelling to Camberwell for. Ethiopian food might not be on the top of everyone’s list of foods to eat, heck, its probably not even on a list at all. But believe me it’s bloody good….

Beer and Buns

Beer and Buns is an excellent casual hangout without having to break the bank. Situated upstairs at K10 right by Liverpool Street station this place is a handy little spot, perfect for those who just want to kick back, relax and just catch up especially after a hard day at the office. The food and…

Cut + Grind

To win this years national burger awards is a pretty big coup especially considering how many burger joints there are in Britain, but Cut + Grind have achieved just that and it’s pretty clear to see why. At Cut + Grind their philosophy is simple, to make a simple yet effective burger patty by selecting…

Madame D

From the gang behind Gunpowder comes Madame D, a place that has a particularly fascinating story behind its inspiration. The tale goes along the lines of this – a woman who was driven out of China and ventured across Tibet and Nepal selling opium before arriving in India where she met a man who smuggled…

Eat Street – Brisbane

Eat Street deserves a separate post to my Brisbane blog. This my friends is the Shangri-La of the food scene in Queensland and just like Street Feast and Pop Brixton here in London, Eat Street is Brisbane’s answer. Words can not describe how mega this place is. It’s huge and grand on a breath taking…

FoodPunk Visits Brisbane

The City Brisbane is definitely worthy of having the title of being capital of the “sunshine state” because quite simply temperatures can be blisteringly hot and at its peak can reach a high of 30 degrees. When you’re not melting away in the sun Brisbane has plenty of things on offer. It may not be…

FoodPunk Visits Sydney

The City Sydney, famous for Bondi Beach, the harbour bridge and of course the Opera house but unlike Melbourne and Brisbane it’s definitely more corporate looking. Think Canary Wharf but on a much  larger scale. An eye catching harbour surrounded by calm waters, big skyscrapers, home to all the major banks and businesses and you’ve…
