Not exactly a life changing curry, but still a bit different. The flavours in this restaurant are sweeter than they are spicy, so it makes for a nice change. Everything is vegetarian, and there are a number of vegan friendly dishes as well. They are unlicenced, but they do have a number of tasty yoghurt based drinks and milkshakes (but again, more sweet). The service is really quick, so it's a perfect lunch time spot. And they are rather nice fellows running the place. Word of caution: while they do take credit cards, they can't take anything with a chip and pin. So bring cash or something a bit more old school.

If you’re going to bother going to a posh department store, Fortnum and Mason is the posh department store to go to. Whether I’m killing time in the neighbourhood, looking for fancy biscuits for my gran’s birthday or taking visiting family for afternoon tea, it’s always an impressive shop to look at, the staff are always lovely and something of an experience to visit. The presentation is always perfect, whether its a stack of perfumed soap or roasted garlic. It’s a shame tourists waste so much time wandering the crowded Harrod’s Food Halls when the could get more from glancing at the tea selection at Fortnum.

I usually favour the East End bagels shops, mostly because they’re open 24 hours and generally fantastic, but there are times when I don’t really fancy the journey eastward.
On such days Happening more than does the trick. Their bagels are a bit bigger and a lot dense, but though they require a bit of extra effort chewing, they’re still nice and soft and always fresh. It’s hard to find a good bagel in London, but gosh darn it if the Happening doesn’t make a fine effort.

Kilburn is hardly the epicentre of cool, but it’s worth trekking north to go to the Luminaire. In addition to being a sweet little club with great sound, a really comfortable set up and cheap drinks, it’s just a generally good night out. It is very much geared towards the indie kids, but still a bit more laid back than a night out in Camden or Shoreditch. And their calendar is always packed, so it’s worth checking regularly for what bands are playing.

Magma is a treat for art geeks, design geeks, graphic novel geeks, pop culture geeks, and just geeks full stop. Sure, if you went to Forbidden Planet, you could get t-shirts, badges, graphic novels and action figures, but they wouldn’t have quite the same flair or edge. Plus they have just about every art and design magazine under the sun. The perfect place to find a little something for yourself or your artsy friends.

A great little venue with an intimate feel that steps up for bigger bands. The vibe inside is great: good music, friendly towards the indie kids but not too cool for school. It’s the kind of place you can go and pay attention to the band on stage rather than what everyone’s wearing. And since the band on stage can a relatively local unknown group or Spoon, it’s worth paying attention.

I have to admit that the main reason I ever visit Panzers is for American products. There are some things that I get a craving for and simply can’t wait for my next trip home to pick up. And some things that just seem completely alien to Brits that I need to illustrate by example.
But aside from that, Panzers is a bit too pricey for most of my daily shopping. I can understand paying import prices for import products, but I have a hard time understand why a punnet of berries should cost that much.
Neighbourhoody stores like Panzer are becoming more of a rarity, though, so I do have to appreciate the homey nature of such a business.

A really lovely little club and the place for singer-songwriters to make an appearance. 12 Bar is divided up a bit curiously, so you can find a space whether you want to play snooker in the back or watch a band or sit up front away from the noise but within earshot of the music. It’s rather dark and very atmospheric inside and has a very 50s beatnik kind of feel to it.
I’ve yet to go to a proper punk gig there, but the acoustics in live room would be perfect.

Very bizarrely, this charming pub is a sister restaurant to the Camden Bar and Kitchen. If a member of staff at the latter hadn’t told me, I never would have believed it. Though both have their charms, the Vine is a much mellower place. It’s probably the locale alone that attributes to the general quiet - Hampstead Heath is generally a bit less animated than Camden Town. But the Vine also has the space its southerly sister can’t afford, and is a bit more comfortable as a result. And they’ve always got newspapers by the fireside, making you feel not only welcome to pass and afternoon, but encouraged to take your time and enjoy your surroundings. A pub worth visiting after your next picnic.

I’ve only ever been to the Wolseley for breakfast, but oh my what a breakfast it is. The kedgeree is a particular favourite of mine. This is a nice place to take your mum and dad or any visiting out-of-towners as it really is a rather lovely building and pretty impressive meal. Of course, it really should be considering the cost. Still, I’ve only ever had good service and the countless friends that have gone report the same. Word of advice: don’t bother making reservations, especially for breakfast. Usually if you just show up they have a set number of tables aside for walk-ins.
