  • Pret's Autumn menu introduces power omelettes - and the pumpkin latte is back


    No matter what the forecasters are saying about a last minute Indian summer, Autumn is definitely on the way. And the imminent arrival of Pret's Autumn menu in two weeks time seals the deal. Here's what you need to look out for...

    1. Power Omelettes are go!

    Apparently these are some of the most popular breakfast items in Pret's US stores. There's a veggie Egg White Power Omelette and a Ham & Spinach Power Omelette to choose

  • A trio of classics - Murano, Modern Pantry and the Connaught bar all turn 10 this year

    10muranoIt’s time for a bit of celebration this year, as not one but two of London’s most legendary restaurants and a classic bar are hitting double digits, with their 10th birthdays - Murano, the Modern Pantry and The Connaught bar - and they’ve got plenty of plans to mark the occasion in style.

  • A London restaurant is celebrating National Tequila Day with an avocado luge


    If Covent Garden restaurant Cantina Laredo were gunning for the millennial market, they couldn't have done any better than their latest wheeze. For National Tequila Day next week (yes, there really IS a national day for that and it's on 24 July) anyone who orders one of their Clásico Guacamoles will get a free tequila shot straight out of an avocado.

    Better still, the restaurant will then use that tequila infused avocado to make your guacamole.


  • The Blue Posts is about to launch a contender for best pub lunch in London


    London's gastropub scene has been getting a real injection of creativity of late, what with Dan Doherty and Tom Oldroyd both opening their own boozers and Henry Harris bringing his skills to a range of pubs

  • Here are the seven new burgers Byron has put on the menu


    It's been an "interesting" period for Byron. It's probably fair to say that with their rapid expansion - not to mention hitting the headlines over immigration issues - they've lost some of the love that the British public had for them, back in the day.

    But the burger chain is

  • CHIK'N is relaunching as an express Chick 'n' Sours with new burgers


    If you've been wondering why CHIK'N on Baker Street is currently closed, then let us enlighten you. The team are working behind the scenes to turn it into more of an ‘express’ Chick ‘n’ Sours with more attitude to the dishes and a restaurant that's "more chilled to sit in now". And to that end, they're bringing in three new sandwiches and one amazing sounding special.

    They'll be keeping two of their burgers - the Straight Up and CHIK’N Classic but new ones

  • The Providores' chef Peter Gordon puts 5 salads on the menu at Drake and Morgan restaurants


    It's apparently spring (looks out of window forlornly) so we're bringing you some salad news in the hope that eating it will somehow have a knock-on effect on the weather. Which is why we were interested to hear about the team up between The Providores chef, restaurateur and food writer, Peter Gordon and Drake & Morgan.

    To tie in with Peter's new book ‘Savour – Salads for All Seasons’, he's come up with five fusion salads on the menu at all of their

  • Cheeky AND squeaky - Nando's introduce halloumi sticks to the menu


    You know it's not all tasting menus and wine pairing here at Hot Dinners HQ. We'd be lying if we didn't admit to being just as partial as the next person to a cheeky Nando's. So it's only to be expected that our timeline totally blew up today with the news that they're about to launch two new veggie dishes.

    I mean, we're glad to hear that there's a veggie stew coming - Veggie Cataplana mixes chargrilled veggies with chickpeas and beans, in a hot tomato and coconut

  • Gillray's have supersized the Yorkshire pudding and we're all for it


    Whether it's the cold weather or our general need for carbs, London has currently got a bit of pash for Yorkshire puddings. Last week we reported on a new Liverpool Street pub doing bottomless yorkies - now a riverside restaurant is supersizing them.

  • Bone marrow and truffle porridge goes on the menu at Rude Health in Fulham


    What with all the National and International food events happening, we completely missed out on World Porridge Day yesterday. Obviously it's in our diary for next year.

    But just because the day honouring all things oaty has been and gone doesn't mean you can't enjoy some top notch bowls here in London. The Rude Health Porridge Championships 2017 took place last week and the winning entry sounds - well - amazing.

    The bowl of wonder came from the
