Review: Cafe Mish, Mayfair, London
Mish is delish!
You can't beat a hot roast sandwich! Café Mish is a welcome addition to the marvellous array of cafes and pubs that are scattered around the Shepard’s Market, in the heart of Mayfair, London. Opened in August 2015, ‘Mish’s’ friendly and attentive staff have been serving customers delicious roast sandwiches, with fresh meats delivered daily. In collaboration with ‘The Bread Factory,’ these hot roast sandwiches are topped off with the highest quality ingredients and the freshest of breads.
I tried the medium sized ‘Roast Angus', peppered roast rib of beef with homemade horseradish’ and wild rocket (£10.25), with a side of ‘mish slaw’ (£1.75).
I was pleasantly greeted with a juiciest of steak sandwiches one could hope for. The flavours of the meat belted through, with the sharpness of horseradish complementing the Heaven that was held within my hands.
If you are wanting a quick bite and are in the area, then look no further, Café Mish is the place to be!
1A Shepherd Street
Thomas's at Burberry is now London's most fashionable place to take tea. The small but perfectly formed tea list showcases three organic, single-batch teas from small producers, all of which are extremely limited.
Jameel Lalani, Founder & CEO of Lalani & Co, said:
"The philosophy behind a short tea list is a desire to keep the list seasonal; to offer just the best and to do it well. The teas on this list are the best of their region; all unique single batches, traceable and from prime seasons. Guests will be able to experience them in beautiful surroundings and expertly prepared."
The team has been carefully trained to observe the correct leaf weight, water temperature and time for each tea. Each one is served to perfection and standards are very high.
The tea is available by the cup or as part of Burberry's afternoon tea. The afternoon tea costs £32 or £44 with champagne.

Pennethorne's Cafe Bar at Somerset House - Stylish bites in an iconic setting...
If you're looking for somewhere stylish to meet your friends for post work drinks or a pre-theatre nibble, than Pennethorne's Cafe Bar at Somerset House is just the place. Here, chic black walls, large Palladium windows, tasteful gold light fixtures and modern, hanging light bulbs, all blend together harmoniously to create a warm and refined atmosphere.
The night I visited, the bar was frequented by young, fashionable types in their late 20s-early 30s, however, this could have had something to do with London Fashion Week events that were still lingering.
With a new pre-theatre dining menu, and an enviable location in the heart of the theatre district, Pennethorne's Cafe Bar is perfectly situated for pre-theatre dining.
For £25.50, two diners can enjoy a mouth-watering assortment of tasty bites with the sumptuous sharing board which includes: Mushrooms on Toast, Beefeater Salmon on Toast, Parma Ham, Soft Boiled Egg and Watercress on Toast, and a glass of Prosecco.
The Mushrooms on Toast with Parmesan shavings was probably one of the best I've had, with a very rich, almost meaty flavour with a slight hint of sweetness.
The Parma Ham, Soft Boiled Egg and Watercress on Toast, was also a winner, but to be honest, it's a safe combination that's hard to beat. The soft boiled egg was perfectly cooked, which is key for achieving the perfect balance.
The Beefeater Salmon on a bed of raw cabbage was bursting with flavour, but may be a bit too intense for those who aren't keen on strong, fishy flavours.
Dessert is kept simple with a huge bowl of rich fudge to share. Tasty, but you'd be hard pushed to eat more than two pieces, unless you have a ridiculously sweet tooth!
Overall, the sharing platter provides a good variety of options and is quick and easy for those rushing off to enjoy a show. The service was efficient and the servers were friendly and more than happy to provide wine recommendations and answer any questions you may have about the menu.
For larger groups or special events, you can also hire out the private dining room, which is perfect for more intimate events in a simple, yet gorgeous room.
For low-key nights when I'm looking for somewhere to enjoy a glass of vino and nibbles, while enjoying catching up with friends, I know where I'll be going.
