restaurant notes // Piccola, Hampstead Heath

IN A NUTSHELL:  Amazing Italian food, pretty standard atmosphere, definite regular hot spot!

FOOD:  SO GOOD. The fact that my Italian friend Leila suggested the place, kinda says it all. She is crazy picky about what should be deemed as actual Italian food and what shouldn’t be and she loves this and so do I now!

SERVICE:  Good! Its a really small restaurant, I don’t think it fits more than 25 people or so; so with this in mind the staff are really attentive and quite lovely.

PRICE:  My favourite dish is the Rigatoni Amatriciana, which is £9. All of their mains are around this price unless you want seafood & the price increases a little. If you’re like super hungry then get a starter but for a typical night out, you’ll be more than fine with just a main, meaning you could easily spend no more than £15 each.

PERFECT FOR:  A quiet dinner with friends! Also I believe they do take-away, so they’re totally perfect for getting the pasta that will make your Friday night.

EXTRAS:  From Monday to Friday they open from 12:30 – 14:30 and then again at 17:30 – 23:30. So just keep that in mind! Also i’d suggest making a reservation if you can as the restaurant is so small, it fills up pretty quickly.

restaurant notes // Sticks’n’Sushi

STICKS N SUSHI

STICKS’N’SUSHI

IN A NUTSHELL: Chilled & friendly restaurant with a menu filled with insane amounts of sushi and meats on sticks. Their sides are perfect meal additions & their crockery is pretty cool!

FOOD: Pretty damn good! I loved all of the meats, but wasn’t a big fan of their panko fried items. They do great non-alcoholic cocktails too.

SERVICE: Not bad actually; As expected during busy times it can be insane so I’d recommend going for a late lunch, that’s like THE perfect time. Attentive & typically nice staff.

PRICE: Assuming you’re pretty hungry & don’t order the Caviar, I reckon you would spend around £60 on two people eating.
**side note, my pricing estimates will never include alcohol

PERFECT FOR: A first date, as there’s no real messy food; A lunch catch-up, as you can share different meals that arrive at different times and almost have a dish per conversation topic 😀

EXTRAS: Whether you like Sushi or don’t (like me) you’ll have lots to pick from, so don’t worry about the name so much! The vibe is quite friendly, with staff literally shouting Namaste every time someone walks through the door.

Lasagne at Muriel’s

So it’s pretty cold right now and I don’t know about you but I’m constantly craving a home cooked meal, like literally all the time, so dinner at Muriel’s kitchen is like at the top of my list these days as I don’t really have loads of time to spend cooking at home #MillennialWhining. You can see the kitchen, everything is super fresh, the owners head to the market every morning to source the ingredients and this dictates whats on the menu that day, pretty awesome right? Literally a home cooked meal.
