Indigenous restaurant review: Menu challenges everything Veganuary stands for

SSo far, 2022 hasn’t been the breath of fresh air we needed.

Fiend, London W10: ‘Clever, deliciously erratic and slightly confusing’ – restaurant review | Food

SSome restaurants lurk in my journal for weeks, instilling mild anxiety rather than happy anticipation. Devil was one of those examples. It started with the name, which does not whisper equanimity, reverie or gluttony. Fiend, in my opinion, is a demonic, possibly green, gnome-like being, waiting in a dark alleyway in the name of Satan […]
