It is no secret that Dishoom is our favourite Indian restaurant in London. Sexy and charming, Dishoom should be on everyone’s bucket list when visiting London. No other Indian restaurants come close.
While there are many other great Indian restaurants in London, Dishoom is the one you should visit if you only have time for one.
Queues are part of the restaurants’ characteristics, and during peak hours, be prepared to wait up to an hour for a table. And we are telling you go queue anyway, because hell yeah, a meal there is better than ten other Indian meals elsewhere.

Fans of Dazzling Cafe will be delighted to know that a second outlet – Dazzling Cafe Pink – will be officially opening its doors at Orchardgateway on 23 March 2016!
Dazzling Cafe Pink is more female-centric with a dining and retail concept, featuring a plethora of different brands and products ranging from hand bags to fashion accessories. This probably also means a shorter queue at its first outlet at Capitol Piazza!
Everyone should know Dim Sum Icon in Hong Kong by now.
Remember those adorable Gudetama dumplings with molten centers that everyone was posting photos and videos of on social media? Well, to kickstart the new year, Dim Sum Icon has changed its Gudetama concept to a Little Twin Stars one with adorable dim sum items that will totally melt any girl’s heart.
Dim Sum Icon changes their character themes every three months and this Little Twin Stars theme will last till the end of April 2016. Then, a surprise new theme will replace this one.
Of course, we could not resist trying out these dim sum ourselves, so we ventured to The ONE at Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong to have a taste. We were certainly not disappointed by the array of colourful pastel-coloured dishes.
Living in the heartlands of Singapore does not mean artisanal gelato is inaccessible. Barely a year old, Double Scoops is an artisanal gelato cafe situated right in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio, offering premium low-fat gelato at very reasonable prices, alongside a plethora of desserts.
Gelato is always a good idea, especially with Singapore’s humidity. Gelato is loved for being a healthier option as opposed to ice cream because of the lower fat content and use of better ingredients.
This humble gelato parlour has won us over with their no-frills concept that focuses on serving quality desserts. From now till 31 March 2016, readers of ladyironchef can flash this post or quote “ladyironchef” to enjoy 50% OFF the 2nd Waffle/ Shibuya Toast (of same value or lower) purchased from Mondays to Fridays.
Ding Dong! Who’s there?
The quirky brand is actually the brainchild of celebrity chef Ryan Clift. Ding Dong’s contemporary tapas menu features an eclectic mix of Asian-inspired cocktails, Peranakan-style desserts and East-meets-West gourmet dishes. These fusion delicacies are set to impress – at a hefty price of course.
It has been a few months since our last visit to Bangkok, and little did we expect to see the surprise outside Platinum Fashion Mall. There is a whole new stretch of food trucks just right outside the most popular wholesale mall in Bangkok, and it sure is a new food paradise worth checking out when in the Thai city.
Fanciful ice cream, Japanese curry rice, fried chicken and mango sticky rice; these are but a few to name.
And what seemed like the most popular truck that gets everyone’s attention was the stall right outside McDonald’s – Demi Concept. It is really a food truck that sells gorgeous Japanese soft serve cones.
All hail Deliveroo – the newest restaurant food delivery service that is taking flight in Singapore.
It has only been two months since its launch in town, but it is already our new favourite app for food delivery. Now, if you are thinking that it is just another delivery service now, you might have to take your words back.
