Middle Eastern Cuisine at @MamouniaLounge

unnamedI was lucky enough to sample the delights of Mamounia lounge, a Middle Eastern restaurantĀ in Knightsbridge recently with a group of friends. It really is a delightful restaurant, so good in fact that we found ourselves just relaxing there long after we had eaten. The ambience, food and service are just fantastic.

We were treated to some delicious olives and fresh pita bread to eat with our hummous. The true taste of the middle east was certainly highlighted here with our food ranging from meat balls to lamb kaftas and chicken shawarma. Even the fries were delicious. I cannot recommend this place enough, the interior design is pretty much perfect and even after all these months I’m still salivating over the memory of the lamb kafta I devoured. Dessert was a warm chocolate fudge cake with ice cream, which tasted just as good as it looks. The food was so good that I actually forgot to take a picture (I only remembered by the time my dessert arrive)! šŸ™ Until next time!

Drinks with a View at Vertigo 42

WFD finally had the chance to visit Vertigo 42 recently and after such anticipation it certainly did not disappoint. We love restaurants and bars with a view of London, in fact it’s becoming a bit of a hobby of ours.

Upon entering Tower 42 you have to register at reception and give full contact details if you have not already made a reservation. Once we had been registered, we were given cards (to be used upon exiting at the end of the evening) and went to the only lift to venue. It felt a little like we were on the set of a James Bond movie. The wait for the lift was rather longer than expected, but we’ll put that down to our typical London level of impatience. The wait is definitely worth it though, upon arriving at the bar you can see why this is still a social hot spot in the city of London. The views are stunning and the service was superb. It does feel a little like an extended catwalk at times but it is certainly worth visiting.Ā  Unfortunately we did not get a chance to eat but our drinks were rather nice, we had a champagne cocktail and a simple juice mixer, though to be honest one does get so distracted by the view and the general ambience that it’s difficult to recall how great the drinks really were (let’s just say they were not terrible!).
