THE HEALTHY JANUARY EATERIE: Tonkotsu Mare Street

With a spicy new seafood ramen as well as the usual Tonkostsu classics, I’m loving the expansion of this incredible Japanese brand. The new restaurant opened this week, so get down there for dinner tonight!

SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR DIET WITH: The Riblicker

Ditch the detox and say hello to the Riblicker. BBQ’ed pork covered in a succulent sauce and served with sweet pickles and chopped onions, £9 from a Meat Liquor near you.

THE HOTEL TO BE SEEN IN THIS WEEK: Tulse Hill Hotel

Tulse Hill was not on my to-do list until a recent trip to this magnificent new pub, restaurant and hotel. With stylish interiors, killer cocktails and a wonderful open plan restaurant, the Tulse Hill Hotel will have you all hotfooting it to SE24.

IMPRESS DINNER GUESTS WITH: Kitchen Kit

Habitat has some stunning new kitchen lines in their SS15 collection. I particularly fell for this grey and orange-striped dinnerware set. I love the clean contemporary lines of the set.
