  • Humble Grape offers three sustainable sharing plates for £30 – Review

    Humble Grape is going all out with their New Year offer including three sustainable sharing plates for £30 and a wine flight – yes you read that right! They are intent on us beating away the January blues with a stunning small plates menu conjuring up a Venetian style small plates menu with wine flight to accompany the feast. Imagine you’re by the Grand Canal instead of freezing in the UK. The manager explained they work directly with suppliers to source the best wines from around the world, hence the reasonable prices, always helpful after Christmas. Humble Grape has six London branches across the city and a very successful wine subscription. We visited their Fleet Street branch and had a fantastic experience, their staff were so lovely and welcoming. There is even a beautifully stocked wine shop on site featuring grapes from every region which we spent more than we needed to perusing the shelves! We tried the Tiger Prawns with Cous Cous which were plump and juicy, we could have eaten more. Next was a generous portion of Crispy Cauliflower with Aioli which reminded us of Bang Bang Chicken – Bang Bang Cauli? The crunch was quite something. The highlights were the Braised Short Rib with Pumpkin Puree which was the best thing we’ve had since our Christmas Dinner and the Roasted Pumpkin with a delicious spiced Hummus, both filling plates considering the price, and fresh and simple flavours we enjoyed. The menu deserves a repeat visit with the Padron Peppers, Baked Camembert with bespoke herbs and the Flat Iron steak catching our eye for next time. The wine flight perfectly matched the dishes with a stunning Pinot Grigio, Gargenega, Cantina Rinca and a Valpolicella, and we loved the accompanying tasting notes. For Dry January we were also served a spritz with ginger and soda which was refreshing and not too sweet – which also went well with the food. Customers need to quote ‘Humble January” when booking to claim. You can book your table at one of their six locations. Website Written by Claire Selby Photos courtesy of Humble Grape

  • Ping Pong’s Bento Box offering – Review

    Our recent lunch excursion to Ping Pong Soho, centered around the much-talked-about Bento Box offering, exceeded all expectations. Despite the time constraints of city working life, the efficient service and prompt arrival of our dishes ensured a delightful experience without feeling rushed. Upon entering the restaurant, we were ushered to a semi-circle high table with a captivating view of the bustling surroundings through floor-to-ceiling windows adorned with vibrant Chinese upside-down umbrellas. Being midday, the restaurant was expectedly quiet, however, this did not last long, and diners started to quickly fill the restaurant throughout the lunch period. The Bento Box menu, briefly explained to us by our waiter featured a well-thought-out selection process using cards and pencils. The menu structure, starting with fixed servings followed by dumplings and mains, provided a streamlined ordering experience. The addition of barcodes on the cards for allergen and nutritional information was a thoughtful touch. Our Fixed Servings included steamed jasmine rice, edamame with celery salt, and vegetable spring rolls accompanied by an array of flavourful dips. The seafood dumplings, served piping hot in a bamboo pot, were a delightful choice among the enticing options of chicken gyoza and spinach & mushroom dumplings. For our mains, the soy-marinated chicken skewer won over the chicken katsu by a slight margin. The flavours of each dish were exceptional, with a few drops of Ping Pong’s homemade soy sauce, even elevated the jasmine rice to a tasty treat. The act of extracting the edamame beans from skins added a satisfying touch to the overall experience. As someone accustomed to the routine of grabbing a standard ciabatta sandwich meal for lunch, Ping Pong’s Bento Box emerged as a revelation—a quick, incredibly tasty, and reasonably priced alternative. The experience has firmly placed this restaurant on my radar for future lunchtime escapades. I eagerly anticipate returning to explore more of Ping Pong’s offerings, confident that the quality and efficiency of their service will continue to impress. Lunch Bento Box priced at £11.95, available Mon- Fri 12-5pm. Locations: Soho, Southbank, St Christophers Place, St Katherines Docks and St Pauls.
