Flora Indica: Britannica Exotica

Once again, SEEN is thrilled to discover a new restaurant in London that prides itself on the freshness and juxtaposition of its ingredients, not only in its food but in its cocktails too. So it is with great pleasure that we plan to dine (and possibly drink) at Kensington’s Flora Indica, a venue that promises a British/Indian culinary experience removed from the bewildering pace of city life, or what we might understand as traditional Anglo-Indian cuisine.

SEEN Reviews: Little Galicia at Tapas Revolution

SEEN hardly needs an invitation to Shoreditch in these long summer days of pop-ups and beer appreciation, so it was with great delight that we attended the Tuesday Night Little Galicia Takeover of Tapas Revolution to partake in a tasting menu that paired the very best of Galician cuisine with some top beers from Estrella Galicia – Spain’s premier producer, if you didn’t know.

BOL Hot Meal Pots: Speedy Summer Dining

You may remember how delicious SEEN found BOL’s Salad Pots earlier in the year. We are certainly looking forward to trying their new Italian Tomato Courgetti and Moroccan Chicken Tagine. Ready in three minutes, these promise a wealth of wholesome and fresh ingredients; perfect for a quick lunch or supper when you’re on the go and have no time to cook something more elaborate from scratch. You’ll recall that SEEN was struck by how filling the Salad Jars were; we have no doubt that BOL will have pulled this feat off again.

Little Galicia: Northern Spain Pops Up in London

Lucky Londoners enjoying Summer in the city are well advised to book early for Little Galicia, set to stage a takeover at Tapas Revolution in Shoreditch on 26th July. This is an alliance made in heaven; Estrella Galicia is Spain’s largest independent brewery, and Tapas Revolution is the epitome of a fun and bustling Tapas bar, courtesy of Chef Omar. He and his team use only the best Iberian ingredients in their menus. So, fabulous food, talented live acts and, of course, delicious Estrella Galicia beer means that diners can steep themselves in the culture, history and quality of Northern Spain.
