If January is supposed to be a quiet month then I can’t wait for the rest of the year because this was a fantastic way to start my Foodie year. This month consisted of a return to fabulous Greek & Turkish restaurants , a first visit to a 2 AA Rosettes/Bib Gourmand restaurant in Essex , a visit to a newly awarded Michelin Star restaurant & a return to an Essex pub for a complimentary lunch. We began with a return to Suvlaki in Shoreditch for another fantastic Greek feast. This is a great little restaurant where the food and service is excellent and should definitely be on your list of places to eat.
The following week we visited the fabulous 2AA Rosettes / Bib Gourmand Galvin Green Man for an absolute treat. This is a fantastic family restaurant & pub serving excellent food which is also unbelievable value for money. This place is a real credit to the Essex food scene and somewhere I would highly recommend.

The following saturday took us to Shoreditch for a visit to the newly awarded Michelin Star restaurant Brat for some amazing basque inspired food cooked on a wood fire grill. The flavours are simply amazing and along with the fabulous service it’s not hard to see why this place received their prestigious award.
On the last weekend of the month it was time for a long overdue return to Oklava for some truly fantastic Turkish/Cypriot cuisine. The food inspired by the amazing Selin Kiazim is just heavenly. Definitely a must visit.
To finish the month it was a return to the Black Horse in Brentwood for a delightful Sunday Lunch. This lunch was complimentary as a Thank You for my recent review which was much appreciated and also nice when a place really likes one of my reviews. THE BLACK HORSE
So there you have a really great start to the year and stand by for it to continue into February with some fantastic places already lined up.
