Aqua Mediterranean Meze Bar and Grill Review, Croydon

Essencious-Aqua-Seafood-Pasta

I’m loving the local restaurants around the Croydon and South Croydon area. Lots of awesome little gems, here is yet another one. Location It’s located along the main street connecting East and South Croydon and it can’t be missed. Unfortunately parking isn’t easily accessible around this area and most of the side streets have meters. Environment The restaurant has some simply and modern decorations. The staffs were lovely and helpful. We were seated close to their open kitchen at the back and it’s just awesome watching the chefs cook all the dishes. Queue time We turned up at around 6pm […]

Patty & Bun Review, Liverpool Street, London

We finally made our way to try the famous burger joint of Patty and Bun. We’ve been putting it off for a little while because we didn’t want to wait for ages in queue for our meal. Going on a weekday seem like the most sensible choice for such a small and popular little restaurant. We turned up at the Liverpool Street branch at about 7:30pm. This branch is much smaller than the one in Central London as it’s more fast food, takeaway style. We managed to get ourselves onto one of the few tables they had. There were a […]
