Taste of London 2014

Comments : 1 Posted in : Food, London, Restaurants on by : Reema Tags: , , ,

Apologies for my silence the past couple of weeks. I’ve had a lot going on but it’s finally time to catch up on a long overdue blog post.

I was invited to attend the Taste of London Festival held in Regent’s Park a few weeks ago.  Taste of London is an annual event celebrating London’s buzzing restaurant scene. Held each year at Regent’s Park, the festival showcases signature ‘taster’ dishes from some of the city’s best restaurants as well as special cooking theatres and workshops offering Londoners the opportunity to get up close and personal with popular chefs.

In addition to restaurants, there were several pop-up bars set up throughout the festival including Sushi Samba, Laurent Perrier Bar and the Mahiki Lounge. I was with my mum and my little one so very sadly, had to skip the bars on this occasion.

With some of London’s trendiest restaurants tempting me with food, there were some tough choices to make. Here are some highlights from a delicious day at Taste of London 2014.

Early arrival at Regent’s Park to beat the hungry queues.

Loved strolling through the Small Producers’ Market and sampling the various treats on offer. Artisan jams by  Butterfly & the Bee were truly amazing, especially the  Strawberry & Rose and Plum & Garam Masala flavours – unique and delicious.

 I couldn’t get enough of this fabulous Mango Fudge by Yum Yum Tree Fudge, made with real mango.

 The restaurant visits begins with guacamole and chips from Peyote, London’s newest Mexican restaurant in Mayfair.  Yum!

 Followed by a walk through ‘Taste of Korea’ and spicy Korean tacos by Choi Boys – 2 Korean brothers serving up their favourite Korean style street food recipes at various food markets around London.

 A quick stop at Assado to say hello to my Twitter friends, Mr. & Mrs. Todiwala. Assado is Cyrus Todiwala’s new fusion restaurant in London Waterloo offering a blend of Portuguese,Brazilian and Goan/Indian flavours.

Spicy, braised Octopus with tomato and paprika from Assado was deliciously memorable. Thank you, Mrs Todiwala! 🙂

 And finally,  a quick stop at Movenpick to cool off with some delicious white chocolate ice cream for little A!

Thank you, Taste of London, for providing us with complimentary entrance tickets to the event. We had a great time!

I may leave the little one at home next time though – those pop-up cocktail bars were too tempting! 😉
