Well, well, well, hello all, I’m back with another foodie post, this time exploring a few places around the Soho area.
Soho has so many great options for food and cocktails. After a busy day shopping around Oxford Circus, I’ve picked three places for lunch, dinner and drinks, as well as a few other options too! So, if you’re heading into London for a day of shopping and food, this is a mini guide of delicious foods for you.
Pop by Kaffeine for AMAZING coffee and delicious sandwiches and salads. Joe and I shared the roasted chilli broccoli, sun dried tomato, hummus, feta cheese, baby spinach sandwich – the vegetarian option I know… rather surprising for us but it was lovely combination of ingredients.
Also, Kaffeine tends to be really busy at weekends, so if you can’t get a spot, maybe try The Attendant or Workshop Coffee which are really close by.

After some serious shopping, we stopped by Flat Iron just off Carnaby Street. Sadly you can’t make reservations, so it’s first come first serve. We queued for about 20-30 minutes as we were a group of 4. But I think if you’re a couple, you’re more likely to get in sooner!
Flat Iron has been on my list for absolute ages and I’m glad we went. It’s a really quirky venue with low-lighting, wooden tables and meat cleavers for your knifes.
You have the option of a flat iron steak or special beef steak, with a variety of sides and sauces.
The steak is pretty reasonably priced for ‘London prices’ ranging from £11-16. The steak itself was tasty but it wasn’t the best steak I’ve ever had. The chips and creamy spinach sides were amazing though!
If you’re in a meaty mood and have had no luck getting a table, Honest and Bryon Burgers are close by. Or if you’re in a particularly fancy mood, Bob Bob Ricard is a street away. I’d also highly recommend The Duck and Rice if you’re feeling Chinese!

To finish off the day, I’d recommend drinking cocktails at the Blind Pig at the Social Eating House. It’s my favourite cocktail bar in London, and I know how difficult it is to get a table, so I was so happy to get a table by turning up by chance on a Saturday night. Usually you have to ring them to book a table in advance!
At the moment they have cocktails inspired by Great British Tails.
I could of easily had every single one but I went for The BFG’s Dream Jar: Hendricks Orbium, midori, vanilla, citrus, cucumber and watermelon soda and snozzcumber meringue foam. It was delicious – it kind of tasted like banana gin!
The other one I went for was Jermima Puddle-Duck’s Fowl Play which is a combination of duck fat washed Aylsbury Duck vodka, blood orange, chartreause, honey and herbs and spices – which was also lovely.
My husband and sister in law went for Mr Tumnus’s Tumnus Tipple Delight: Star of Bombay, lanique rose, white chocolate, citrus, vanilla, egg white and ice shard (the blue drink). And, Joe also went for Pooh’s Hunny Pot: Bacardi Oro, mead, cider brandy, honey, orange blossom, honeycomb and a piglet which came in this cute ‘hunny’ ceramic pot with a percy pig and honeycomb decorated on the top.
A must if you’re in the Soho area!
