London’s hidden restaurant that will awaken your senses

Hidden within London is a little place called Farringdon. And there lies Dans Le Noir – a hidden London Restaurant.

Upon entering to the well-lit lobby, you are presented with your menu options; Meat, Fish, Vegetarian or Chef’s Choice. Next you select the number of courses, we opted for two courses – starter…

How to drink Wódka

How to drink Wódka

Tatanka is the BEST way to drink Wódka. Despite losing my Tatanka virginity in a bar named ‘Alchemia’, this polish cocktail is so effortless that even the most futile cocktail maker can produce it!
