Any recommendations then?
That is probably the number one question I get when I tell people I write a blog nattering on about all the restaurants I go to. And without fail, I stare blankly at said person while trying to think of which sorts of restaurants to recommend – deep down, you like starched linen tablecloths and silver service or you’re happy queueing for hours in the cold to get your hands on a burger.
But the reality is that I, like most, have numerous dining personalities. I have days where I’m happy to be all spontaneous and impulsive and I don’t mind taking my chances on a ‘No Reservations’ place (Those days are few & far between), more often I like to book ahead. I like afternoon tea with a twist and I don’t particularly mind if they omit the scones completely and I absolutely adore a good burger. Preferably one where juices run down my hands and I have to lap at them like a greedy pup.
So how do I choose what restaurants to go to next? Well some of this is a hefty dose of FOMO – fear of missing out, largely fuelled by the Twitterati but most comes from what I need at the time. So mainly I find myself searching the internet for ‘Best brunches in London’, ‘Best pizza in London’ (This is fuelled by Husband), ‘Best veggie friendly places in London’ – this to ensure the dear veggie friends have something better than plain pasta to eat on a night out.
And sure, most of the time, the World Wide Web does the job. But what if these searches were all in one place? Ahh now you’re talking – enter Zomato Collections! They have 24 ‘Collections’ all offering inspiration in neat and tidy themes – need a vintage pub, click here then. Need somewhere to take the sprogs? Click here then. And if you need some inspiration, there’s even a Trending right now section – so you can truly be at the cutting edge of FOMO.
