Things To Do On The Mississippi Gulf Coast

By Moscato Mom Leave a Comment Things To Do On The Mississippi Gulf Coast 20 shares Yummly This trip was sponsored by Coastal Mississippi . All images and opinions are my own.
Recently my family and I had a chance to visit the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a quick family vacation. Whether you are planning a family vacation or a romantic getaway, here is a list of some of the Best Things To Do on the Mississippi Gulf Coast!
The Mississippi Gulf Coast is a 62-mile span filled with amazing museums, exquisite restaurants, eclectic boutiques, adventure attractions, and relaxing beaches.
Lovingly known as “The Secret Coast” Coastal Mississippi is everything you want in a vacation without the big crowds and hustle and bustle of the cities like New Orleans and Mobile which sit on either side.
Whether you are looking for a thrilling adventure or a place to unwind, Coastal Mississippi has everything you could ever want in a vacation. Art & History Museums
The Arts have played an enormous part of history on the Gulf Coast and it is all showcased beautifully in numerous art museums and galleries.
From hand-thrown pottery to enormous mural walls to coastal photography and even sailing vessels – you can enjoy artwork from skilled artisans all along the Gulf Coast. Walter Anderson Museum
The Walter Anderson Museum of Art was opened in 1991 to showcase the work of Master painter Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965) as well as his brothers, Peter Anderson (1901-1984), master potter and founder of Shearwater Pottery; and James McConnell Anderson (1907-1998), noted painter and ceramist.
The Museum itself is a work of art with high ceilings and sky lit interior which warmly displays a myriad of watercolors, drawings, oils, block prints, ceramics, and carvings by the three Anderson brothers.
And if you are lucky – like we were – you may catch one of the next generation of Anderson’s talking about his father’s work – and growing up on the coast.
The Walter Anderson Museum is located in downtown Ocean Springs and is open Monday-Saturday 9:30am-4:30 pm. Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum
Coastal Mississippi offers some of the best seafood around – and the history of how this booming industry came to be is displayed on three stories of the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi.
Through an extensive collection of artifacts, photographs, and exhibits you can take a walk back in time from the first Indian settlement through generations of immigrants who built what is now the “melting pot culture” of the Gulf Coast.
I could spend hours in the room dedicated to all of the hurricanes that have come through Coastal Mississippi and the surrounding areas. The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum has a beautiful display of each and every one of them – all the way back to the 1700s.
Growing up on the Gulf Coast I have experienced my fair share of storms – and yet I am still always in awe of the power each storm has and the resiliency of local residents every time a storm hits.
The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum is open Monday-Saturday 9-4:30pm and Sunday Noon-4pm. Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art
I have passed the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art a dozen times – and never knew what it was! This incredible museum “campus” features the ceramics of George E. Ohr (1857-1918), the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” and several other small galleries of contemporary and historic exhibitions from around the area.
Built atop of one of the hardest hit areas from Hurricane Katrina, this incredible tribute really pays homage to how the human spirit can overcome absolute destruction and become something beautiful.
Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art even offers art classes and workshops and a viewing area where you can watch local potters and sculptors as they work to create some of Coastal Mississippi’s most beautiful artwork.
Between all of these galleries you will find the Mississippi Sound Welcome Center which provides visitor information services and amenities, such as free WIFI, a museum store, and even a collection of art right in the welcome center.
The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art is open Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 10am – 5pm Best Restaurants
One of the best parts of vacation is the food, right? So we found the best restaurants in Biloxi, Ocean Springs, and Bay St Louis. The Greenhouse On Porter
The Greenhouse on Porter was one of my favorite stops the entire weekend we were vacationing. Nestled right in the City of Ocean Springs , this is a “must try” for Coastal Mississippi dining.
Each morning they offer two specialty biscuits – one sweet and one savory – with your choice of side and a variety of gourmet teas and coffees. We, of course, had to try one of each – and it is absolutely impossible to say which one was best.
The Greenhouse on Porter is just exactly that – a greenhouse – with beautiful flowers and whimsical decor and family style seating where you may make a new friend.
And what breakfast nook is complete without a cocktail bar? Mimosas and biscuits – the most perfect way to start your day. Mosaic
Right on the main strip of Ocean Springs is where you will find Mosaic – a tapas restaurant and bar.
Mosaic Restaurant offers one of the largest selections of beer on the Gulf Coast as well as a variety of international cuisines, great cocktails and live entertainment almost every night of the week!
They even offer Hookah on their large patio dining area. Mosaic is definitely a hot spot in Ocean Springs and does a great job of blending family friendly with nightlife.
Oh, and I have to recommend the shrimp lumpia! Delish! White Pillars
White Pillars is a farm-to-table fine dining experience in a beautiful historic mansion right along the coast in Biloxi.
The menu changes with the season and offers Mississippi-grown meats and seasonal local vegetables in a variety of dishes to fit every taste.
Every bite was exquisite – from the Seafood Tower to the Bone Marrow & Mushroom Burger. And those fries… worth every single carb.
Winner of numerous awards along the Gulf Coast, White Pillars is a beautiful place to celebrate all of life’s best moments – from birthdays and anniversaries… or simply a beautiful Tuesday night. Mockingbird Cafe
Just a short drive down the coast you will find Bay St Louis – another one of Coastal Mississippi’s best kept secrets. Bay St Louis was named one of the ‘Coolest Small Towns in America’ by Budget Travel and recognized as a top 10 small beach town by Coastal Living Magazine (2010).
I have to believe that The Mockingbird Cafe helped this little coastal town receive those awards as their delicious food, amazing coffees, and delightful atmosphere was the perfect way to start our final day visiting Coastal Mississippi. Local Attractions Biloxi Shrimping Trip
The Biloxi Shrimping Trip is “The Living Marine Adventure Cruise” that you must try while visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I was not sure what to expect for this 70 minute tour – but we were pleasantly surprised and loved every minute!
The Biloxi Shrimping Trip takes you out into the bay and drops a small shrimping net while Captains Mike and Dave tell you all about the shrimping industry on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
They then bring the net in – having caught everything in its path! We had a variety of shrimp, fish, blue crabs, and even the cutest little puffer fish who was NOT so thrilled about being shown off. Is he not the cutest thing ever!?
This is definitely a “hands on” adventure that is loved by all ages. Our cruise was full of families, couples, and even a bachelorette party! We had an absolute blast! Where to Stay Doubletree Biloxi
There are numerous hotels and casinos along Coastal Mississippi – all of which have great amenities, gorgeous views, and easy access to all local attractions. We loved staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Biloxi which has easy access right off the interstate.
Before we even unpacked, my crew was enjoying the freshly baked cookies you receive at Doubletree check-in. I am pretty sure the cookies won over this crowd immediately. Cookies and Free Wifi = happy family.
The Doubletree by Hilton Biloxi has spacious rooms that are perfect for relaxing between excursions. It is wonderfully quiet with plenty of parking and even daily in-room breakfast & dinner service. Sadly it was too chilly to enjoy their large saltwater pool – but we will most definitely be back soon to check that out! How To See It All Mississippi Gulf Coast Attractions Pass
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Attractions Pass is your VIP access to seven of the most popular attractions on the coast. The pass never expires, so you can visit all seven in one day, or space out your trip over a few days – it is totally up to you!
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Attractions Pass includes admission to: Biloxi Lighthouse, Biloxi Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, Gulfport Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum, Biloxi Ohr-O’keefe Museum of Art, Biloxi Pascagoula River Audubon Center, Moss Point Walter Anderson Museum of Art, Ocean Springs
You can pick up the Attractions Pass at all participating attractions and at the Biloxi Visitors Center. My Gulf Coast App
Put everything Coastal Mississippi has to offer in the palm of your hand – literally! The My Gulf Coast App is free to download from iTunes or Google and lets you easily find area attractions to enjoy!
The My Gulf Coast App is organized by the numerous “Shrimp Signs” you will find scattered all along highway 90. By tapping on any of these signs in the app you can search all of the attractions near that sign!
Up for a challenge? The My Gulf Coast App has Scavenger Hunts to find the best landmarks in each city! You can even build a full itinerary right inside the app so you do not miss a thing! The Secret Coast
I could go on and on about all of the things you can explore in Coastal Mississippi – but you should really plan a trip to see them all for yourself. Whether it is a vacation or a staycation – Coastal Mississippi has plenty to explore!
Be sure to visit the Coastal Mississippi Website and follow along on Facebook , Instagram , and Twitter to see all of the goings on along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Review: Gunpowder, Tower Bridge – Harry Readhead

Review: Gunpowder, Tower Bridge Harry Readhead Feb 24 SINCE THE VEERASWAMY opened on Regent Street in 1926, Londoners have been intimately familiar with Indian cuisine. Adarsh Radia, the co-founder of Dishoom, describes it as a ‘love affair’. It is the staple Saturday night takeaway, the sports-team dinner. Everybody knows their favourite dish. So there sees to be an ambition and a certain self-assurance implied in the opening of not one, but two Indian restaurants barely fifteen minutes’ walk from Brick Lane, one of — if you’ll excuse the pun — the United Kingdom’s curry hotspots.
But at the family-run Gunpowder, which modestly advertises ‘home-style’ Indian cooking, there is no korma or masala or naan to be found. This isn’t a curry house and there isn’t any cheap lager available; it is politely asked that you leave your culinary stereotypes at the door. Instead, on an eccentric menu dreamed up by former Tamarind chef Nirmal Save, are dishes such as Sigree grilled mustard broccoli, Kashmiri lamb chops, and Karwari soft shell crab. Gunpowder is nothing if not distinctive; its only uniting concept seems to be the absence of one. And its locations in Spitalfields and Tower Bridge promise a steady influx of foodie hipsters, hungry tourists and upper middle-class gourmands.
What strikes me first is the tasteful simplicity of its branding. Its website (gunpowderlondon.com) look as though it was thrown together half an hour before the restaurant’s opening, and I appreciate the apparent lack of effort. It suggests a kind of confidence that the food will, so to speak, do the talking, which is as it should be. The branch of the restaurant at Tower Bridge is on Duchess Walk, which is barely fifteen minutes from Borough Market. (I mention this because a drink at The Rake followed by a meal at Gunpowder makes for a damn good evening.) A simple, black-and-white drawing of an elephant above the word ‘GUNPOWDER’ points to the restaurant. Inside on two floors are tables and booths, and if you don’t despise the person you happen to be eating with when you visit, ask for one of the semicircular booths upstairs. This — crucially — also allows for equal access to the small plates about to be brought across.
Between the two of us we order the spicy venison and vermicelli doughnut, the nagaland house crispy pork ribs with tamarind kachumber, the chettinad pulled duck served with homemade oothappam, more duck in the form of a whole leg with Andhra-style tomato sambal and parsnips, porzhi okra fries and a very nice bottle of Remi Ferbras Côtes du Rhône red wine. Within fifteen minutes, the wine and most of these dishes are already on the table in front of us, despite that it’s a Saturday night and the restaurant is busy.
Such is our enthusiasm and greed, the doughnut, which is about the size of a scotch egg, seems to vanish within moments of its arrival. I don’t exactly remember how good it was, but this is usually a good sign. We manage to compose ourselves enough to approach the pulled duck at a more reasonable pace. The duck comes in a small piece of oothappam folded over and sealed with a cocktail stick. It looks rather underwhelming, but it’s very, very good. The duck is soft and tender and flavourful; my companion, who is half my size but somehow eats as much as I do, is adamant that it is the best dish out of everything we order. I disagree: I prefer the second duck dish, which is huge. Generally speaking, most of the time you eat duck when out it’s drowning in hoisin. This duck tastes as you imagine duck should taste. It comes easily off the bone in small strips and is powerfully flavourful. It’s deliciously fatty, which for some mad reason in the case of duck is often considered to be a criticism. In all honesty the parsnips that come with the duck barely get to have their say. They disappear with a chunk of duck.
The okra fries are a crispy, voluminous accompaniment to the rest of the food and more than adequate. The only misstep Gunpowder makes comes when I turn to the ribs, but really, I blame myself. For some reason I always fail to remember that ribs are deceptively small and a pain to eat. The bones make up the vast majority of the dish. In this case, though the meagre strips of pork I’m able to slice off these bones are very good, the dish on the whole is weak. But that’s a single, minor disappointment in an otherwise very satisfying meal. And frankly it’s rare in my experience that a restaurant serving small plates manages to be quite so consistent in quality.
It doesn’t need to be said that Indian cuisine is highly diverse, even if the curry-and-lager stereotype has come to prevail in this country. Gunpowder is a welcome reminder of this diversity, but — which is more important — it’s a damn good restaurant. The decor is good, the service very good, and the food excellent. What more could you want?

London is alive with colour this month, as the city celebrates the Hindu festival of Holi .
The celebrations signal the end of winter and the arrival of spring, with the official festival taking place from March 20-21.
It’s being marked with events throughout the month, from fantastic dining to technicolour parties, and promises to be one of the uplifting and feel-good moments of the year.
From colour powder parades to one-off special menus, here’s our pick of how to celebrate Holi in London. What is Holi ? Cinnamon Kitchen in Devonshire Square
Vivek Singh’s restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen in Devonshire Square is hosting its fifth annual pop-up party for Holi this year, welcoming guests until March 21. Guests can mark the celebrations by pulling on a white protective suit and enjoying a paint-pelting session with family and friends. Tons of fun. After working up an appetite, guests can tuck into the five-course Holi menu and a suitably colourful cocktail selection, designed especially for the event.
Until March 21, 9 Devonshire Square, EC2M 4YL, buy tickets here Bang Bang Oriental
North west London’s shrine to Asian cuisine, Bang Bang Oriental, is marking this year’s festival with an evening of dance. A night of traditional Indian performances will light up the foodhall from 7pm to 8pm on Thursday March 21, with Bhangra, South Indian and Bollywood dance groups all celebrating the festival of colour. There is, of course, huge choice when it comes to food too — there are 30 food kiosks packed into the Edgware Road food hall, offering an eclectic mix of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, Taiwanese and Malaysian dishes.
March 21, 399 Edgware Rd, NW9 0FH, Thursday 21 March 2019, bangbangoriental.com Indian Accent
The standout from Indian Accent’s special Holi menu is the stunning beetroot chop with peanut butter and goat cheese raita. It’s a light but sumptuous course, bursting with seasonal flavours and invention. It’s the perfect dish to celebrate the start of spring, embodying everything this Mayfair gem does well.
The Holi a la carte menu is blessed with plenty of gorgeous vegetarians and vegan options, as well as hearty meat dishes which encompass culinary traditions from all over India. While you’re there, make sure to ask for the blue cheese naan bites too; they’re some of the most delicious mouthfuls of food you’ll find anywhere in London. No wonder Fay Maschler gave the place the full five stars.

The ketogenic, or keto, diet was one of the most talked about eating regimes of last year.
Think bacon for breakfast, dark chocolate to snack on and mountains of avocados at all times of the day.
Nutritionists and health gurus are abuzz about the high-fat, low-carb and moderate-protein regime where lashings of olive oil are encouraged, fatty fish is a recommended source of energy and you’re allowed to eat real butter.
After all, the benefits of incorporating healthy fats into your diet are manifest: your skin is clearer, eyes are brighter and you have more energy.
Fancy giving the regime a go? It may feel like we’ve been here before, as keto is similar to other low-carb diets such as Paleo or Atkins. However, with the keto diet the spotlight is on the fats, which should make up between 60 and 80 per cent of your daily calories.
Plant-based fats such as avocados, olives and macadamia nuts are recommended, and protein should comprise a maximum of 20 per cent of your diet. The fewer the carbs, the more effective the diet for stoking the metabolism and chewing through (body) fat, says Martina Slajerova, author of four keto diet books and founder of the KetoDiet app . 6 best workout apps to improve your fitness and well-being
The regime’s goal is to reach a natural state of “ketosis”, where the body kicks in to burn fat instead of sugar to survive. It sounds drastic but provided you are careful, it needn’t be dangerous. And there are many who swear by its weight loss, health and brain-boosting benefits. Gwyneth Paltrow’s totemic lifestyle website Goop recommends it “for people who can’t kick their sugar cravings”.
Sourcing the right ingredients can be time-consuming, though — Slajerova’s latest book, Quick Keto , focuses on recipes that are fast. Meals take a maximum of 30 minutes to make, and most are inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. Most, like the keto bun (a low-carb bread), pizza frittata or the beef fajitas, involve converting popular high-carb meals to low-carb versions. The seafood risotto replaces rice with cauli-rice, while the pork stroganoff replaces pasta with asparagus, broccoli, green beans or courgette noodles. The best restaurants for vegetarians in London 14 show all The best restaurants for vegetarians in London 1/14 The Gate Brothers Adrian and Michael Daniel have been delighting vegetarian diners since 1989. The Gate boasts three incarnations in Hammersmith, Islington and Marylebone, with another on the way in St John’s Wood. After nearly 30 years, it’s still serving up satisfying and ingredient-packed fare with its globetrotting menu: aubergine comes both miso glazed, schnitzel-ed. 2/14 Farmacy “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” say Farmacy, the nourishing Notting Hill eatery with a penchant for Hippocrates. For a wholesome meal, their Earth Bowls offer boundless goodness, brimming with grains and superfoods, or for a very un-naughty treat look to their plant-based “nice cream” sundaes or probiotic jars. ​ 3/14 Jamavar One thing’s for sure, the Indian subcontinent knows how to do vegetarian. Jamavar, one of the latest additions to London’s celebrated Indian fine dining scene, offers a vegetarian tasting menu that might just about lure a meat-eating compatriot to the herbivorous side. The Dal Chawal Aur Achaar dish offers crispy lentil and rice dumplings with a heritage carrot pickle, followed up by veggie-staple paneer, served with a mint and raw papaya chutney. Matt Writtle 4/14 Vanilla Black Before vegetarian fine dining was fairly standard practice, there was Vanilla Black. The exciting menu has what it takes to entice even the most hardened of carnivores — from fried shiitake with pine nut purée and crispy enoki, to a Romanesco and turmeric cake with Brazil nut milk and cavalo nero. The main menu is vegetarian, but both vegan and wheat-free options are also available. 5/14 Honest Burgers You might not have been expecting to see a burger joint in this list — but who says vegetarians don’t like a filled bap now and then? Honest Burger offers one of London’s best veggie burgers, featuring a spiced pakora-like patty of cauliflower,sweetcorn and chickpea. Have it with a portion of Honest’s signature rosemary chips. 6/14 French restaurants would be considered a no-go by some vegetarians, but at this high-end Soho spot chef Alexis Gauthier turns that logic on its head by offering an all-vegan tasting menu. It costs £65 for eight courses and has recently included a carrot tartare with a sesame, avocado and Japanese salt plum paste (umeboshi) and a dish of miso caramelised turnip and quince with marsh samphire and shiso leaf. 7/14 The Palomar From fattoush salad and homemade labneh to beetroot carpaccio and London’s best polenta, The Palomar serves a sprightly array of veggie dishes that even the most dedicated of meat-eater would happily devour. Not that they don’t do equally good things with meat, of course… 8/14 Honey & Co Butternut squash, sesame and cinnamon falafel alongside artichokes braised in olive oil with creamed feta are the kind of fresh-flavoured, Middle Eastern-inspired dishes you’ll find on the menu at these vegetarian spots. Follow up with a main of roasted mauve aubergine with a BBQ tahini crust, jeweled rice salad and lime. 9/14 Wild Food Cafe Sprouting hummus, ‘living’ breads and raw foods are the order of the day at these super-healthy Covent Garden and Islington restaurants. Try the Wabi-Sabi kale salad: sunflower seed sour cream dressing, activated teriyaki almonds, chestnuts, oyster mushrooms, wakame, avocado, butternut squash, tender stem broccoli and – believe it or not – even more veg. Wild Food Cafe 10/14 Ottolenghi Yotam Ottolenghi’s eponymous mini-chain is a well-deserved, if obvious, inclusion in any veggie-friendly recommendation list. His pack of deli restaurants major on perky, vibrant salads along with creatively spiced bakes and all manner of sweet treats. Meat also features for those who want it. 11/14 Nopi Also from Ottolenghi is this stylish Soho restaurant, where meat and fish options sit alongside fresh vegetable-led dishes of burrata with clementine, coriander seeds and lavender honey, or courgette and manouri fritters with cardamom yoghurt. 12/14 Mildreds Mildreds is a Soho institution, and there are now bonus branches in Camden, King’s Cross and Dalston too. It serves a vast array of vegetarian dishes ranging from chillies and curries to burritos and burgers, and has been doing so more than two decades. Dishes are unfussy and unrefined, but nonetheless well-flavoured and reliably well cooked. An added bonus is that while portions are big, prices are impressively small. Mildred’s 13/14 Manna This smart vegetarian restaurant is almost half a century old, and much of its menu is now also vegan and organic, with a bit of raw food thrown in for good measure. Intricate spicing and careful cooking ensures there’s plenty of interest (even for carnivores), while the skills of the kitchen also mean that the raw and vegan dishes are among the most accessible of their kind in London. Manna 14/14 Ethos This restaurant offers simple vegetarian soups and salads alongside sweets like doughnuts and cake pops. Be careful: the price is by weight not by dish, so don’t go if you’re feeling ravenous or you might bankrupt yourself. It’s safer to snack here. For something filling, opt for the springtime scotch eggs, perked up with a sweet and spicy ketchup. 1/14 The Gate Brothers Adrian and Michael Daniel have been delighting vegetarian diners since 1989. The Gate boasts three incarnations in Hammersmith, Islington and Marylebone, with another on the way in St John’s Wood. After nearly 30 years, it’s still serving up satisfying and ingredient-packed fare with its globetrotting menu: aubergine comes both miso glazed, schnitzel-ed. 2/14 Farmacy “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” say Farmacy, the nourishing Notting Hill eatery with a penchant for Hippocrates.

Have it with a portion of Honest’s signature rosemary chips. 6/14 French restaurants would be considered a no-go by some vegetarians, but at this high-end Soho spot chef Alexis Gauthier turns that logic on its head by offering an all-vegan tasting menu. It costs £65 for eight courses and has recently included a carrot tartare with a sesame, avocado and Japanese salt plum paste (umeboshi) and a dish of miso caramelised turnip and quince with marsh samphire and shiso leaf. 7/14 The Palomar From fattoush salad and homemade labneh to beetroot carpaccio and London’s best polenta, The Palomar serves a sprightly array of veggie dishes that even the most dedicated of meat-eater would happily devour. Not that they don’t do equally good things with meat, of course… 8/14 Honey & Co Butternut squash, sesame and cinnamon falafel alongside artichokes braised in olive oil with creamed feta are the kind of fresh-flavoured, Middle Eastern-inspired dishes you’ll find on the menu at these vegetarian spots. Follow up with a main of roasted mauve aubergine with a BBQ tahini crust, jeweled rice salad and lime. 9/14 Wild Food Cafe Sprouting hummus, ‘living’ breads and raw foods are the order of the day at these super-healthy Covent Garden and Islington restaurants. Try the Wabi-Sabi kale salad: sunflower seed sour cream dressing, activated teriyaki almonds, chestnuts, oyster mushrooms, wakame, avocado, butternut squash, tender stem broccoli and – believe it or not – even more veg. Wild Food Cafe 10/14 Ottolenghi Yotam Ottolenghi’s eponymous mini-chain is a well-deserved, if obvious, inclusion in any veggie-friendly recommendation list. His pack of deli restaurants major on perky, vibrant salads along with creatively spiced bakes and all manner of sweet treats. Meat also features for those who want it. 11/14 Nopi Also from Ottolenghi is this stylish Soho restaurant, where meat and fish options sit alongside fresh vegetable-led dishes of burrata with clementine, coriander seeds and lavender honey, or courgette and manouri fritters with cardamom yoghurt. 12/14 Mildreds Mildreds is a Soho institution, and there are now bonus branches in Camden, King’s Cross and Dalston too. It serves a vast array of vegetarian dishes ranging from chillies and curries to burritos and burgers, and has been doing so more than two decades. Dishes are unfussy and unrefined, but nonetheless well-flavoured and reliably well cooked. An added bonus is that while portions are big, prices are impressively small. Mildred’s 13/14 Manna This smart vegetarian restaurant is almost half a century old, and much of its menu is now also vegan and organic, with a bit of raw food thrown in for good measure. Intricate spicing and careful cooking ensures there’s plenty of interest (even for carnivores), while the skills of the kitchen also mean that the raw and vegan dishes are among the most accessible of their kind in London. Manna 14/14 Ethos This restaurant offers simple vegetarian soups and salads alongside sweets like doughnuts and cake pops. Be careful: the price is by weight not by dish, so don’t go if you’re feeling ravenous or you might bankrupt yourself. It’s safer to snack here. For something filling, opt for the springtime scotch eggs, perked up with a sweet and spicy ketchup.
Slajerova calls it an “approach” rather than a restrictive diet. “It’s the first approach I’ve tried where I don’t feel like I’m missing anything,” she says. “Once you learn to follow the diet, it’s actually quiet natural.”
Others aren’t so sure. Laura Tilt, resident nutritionist at Innermost, says she gave up on the diet after a week. “I missed eating fruit and other foods like rye bread and pulses, and found it very hard to adapt,” she recalls. “I had no energy during the first few days. It was pretty miserable.” Other followers report “keto flu” for the first three to four weeks, involving fatigue, nausea, headaches and bad “keto breath”.
You should begin by discussing it with your doctor, says Tilt. Those with high cholesterol, diabetes or pre-existing conditions should be particularly cautious, and it’s not advised during pregnancy. Balance is the buzzword. 10 health benefits of a vegetarian diet, according to a nutritionist
Tilt recommends as many green-leaf vegetables as possible, plus olive oil, nuts and fatty fish. Be cautious about eliminating whole food groups.
But cutting the carbs in the short term could pep up your metabolism and make you feel less sluggish: a major bonus as spring gets into full swing.

Holi 2019: A Guide to Celebrating in London How to celebrate the Festival of Colour in a grey city… by Intern 0
The month of March hails the advent of spring and with it, Holi. The Hindu festival marks the passing of winter, as well as a celebration of fertility, colour and love. While Holi is mostly commemorated in India and Nepal, the festival has made its way across continents, leaving in its path a brush of colour – and London is no exception. From colour powder dance parties to one-off culinary experiences, here’s how to celebrate Holi in London. Paint Pelting at Cinnamon Kitchen
With executive chef Vivek Singh at its helm, the award-winning Cinnamon Kitchen has long been a London go-to for Indian food, and for the fifth year running the restaurant will also be a destination for Holi celebrations. In tribute to the festival’s colour parade, guests at the restaurant’s Devonshire Square outpost can don a white protective suit and enjoy thirty minutes of paint-pelting with family and friends. After working up an appetite, a five-course special Holi menu and cocktail selection will be served. Until 21 March, booking via cinnamon-kitchen.com Biryani and Cocktails at Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club and Distillery
Today is the first day of Holi, and to celebrate Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club and Distillery is giving away free biryani bowls to the first 200 diners – so be sure you’re one of them. If you’ve missed the boat on the biryani though, the bar’s dedicated Colour Cocktail Menu is enough reason for you to still go.

A 5-star rating from Evening Standard’s restaurant critic is what had us booking a table, but it’s the soy keema with quail egg that’s kept us coming back for more.

Atelier de Joel Robuchon Vegas – Francois de Melogue

Atelier de Joel Robuchon Vegas
Francois de Melogue Blocked Unblock Follow Following Mar 19 I had a wonderful meal at Atelier de Joel Robuchon last Friday with three dear friends I had not seen in 20 years. We opted for the ‘seasonal discovery menu’ with the matching wine pairings. The experience was sublime and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal in Las Vegas.
Before I begin my review I have to divulge a few things. First, I was a chef for thirty years and I always considered Chef Robuchon as the mentor I never quite had. That is a partial truth because I was extremely fortunate to do a stage in 1996 for him in Paris at his restaurant on 59 Raymond Poincare. His version of cuisine actuelle guided me throughout my career and I would never had the successes in life I had without the influence of this great man.
I apologize to the photographer for posting without credit. Sadly, in the last year or so I have dined at two legends restaurants who had passed recently (the other being Paul Bocuse ). Coming to one of Robuchon’s outlets was a quasi-religious experience for me and the review will be slightly biased because of those truths.
Incredible bread at Atelier de Joel Robuchon I have to make a special note about the bread. WOW. I do not normally eat a lot of bread at restaurants but these were delicious — no, incredible. Hats of to the bread baker for making truly great bread. The small baguette was a lesson in perfection with its pointy little ends and perfect flavor. The small rolls reminded me of brioche and were sublime.
amuse bouche of foie gras parfait with a port wine reduction and Parmesan emulsion The menu started with an incredible amuse bouche of foie gras parfait with a port wine reduction and Parmesan emulsion paired with Veuve Clicquot. The amuse was absolutely stunning and started the meal off to a great start. The light and airy foie played well with the sweetness of the port and the funkiness of the Parmesan. If I had to nit-pick I would wish they had poured a grower-producer sparkling wine instead of a mass-produced Champagne. I can think of many Terry Thiese imports that cost less and taste a thousand times better.
Sea Scallop Carpaccio with butter shavings and baby radishes. The second course continued with perhaps the best dish of the night, Sea Scallop Carpaccio with butter shavings and baby radishes. One of my favorite springtime things to nibble on are tiny French radishes with butter and flaked sea salt. Serving that with scallops was genius. The richness of the scallops and butter were wonderfully countered by the acidity in the Champagne.
caramelized onion tart with mushrooms The third course was a caramelized onion tart with mushrooms. I really liked the idea of this dish as it brought together some of my favorite flavors like caramelized onions and earthy mushrooms. I felt the onions could have used a bit more loving. The brik dough was ok as a base, but the dish would have profited from something with more texture like a pate brisee, or crunchiness found in kataifi or even a round of filo like Robuchon used to do on his truffle and caramelized onion tart. The brik wasn’t bad but it tends to be slightly tough if not cooked enough and get soggy very quickly if it sits too long with things on it.
tempura langoustine with spiced avocado and tomatillo gazpacho. The fourth course was a tempura langoustine with spiced avocado and tomatillo gazpacho paired with a Jean Marc Brocard 2016 Chablis. If I had to pick a least favorite dish of the night this would be it. All the flavors were there but the langoustine was overcooked and tasted like it had sat for a little while before serving. Maybe I am old school but would have loved to see Robuchon’s famous turban instead.
An incredibly silky cauliflower veloute with curry foam. The fifth course was an incredibly silky cauliflower veloute with curry foam. This soup had an expert balance of flavors and was the best veloute I have had in decades. So often chefs have a super heavy hand with Indian spices which can overpower and ruin a dish. Chef Jimmy’s touch was spot on perfect. The grated purple raw cauliflower added a nice crunch to the soup. The curried flavors were just enough to taste without overpowering the dish.
Loup de mer with eggplant caviar and artichoke foam. Our second favorite dish of the night was the loup de mer with eggplant caviar and artichoke foam. I could have had three rounds of this spectacular dish without any problems. Loup de mer is one of the best fishes you can eat in the world. Over-saucing or too much garnishing would mask the elegant beauty of this fish. Lucky the chef served it with absolutely the most delish accompaniments possible. Serving wine with artichokes is tricky because of the astringency but the Bourgogne Blanc by Raymond Dupont Fahn paired beautifully.
Chicken and foie gras with caramelized Belgian endive. The eighth course was a pairing of chicken and foie gras with caramelized Belgian endive paired with a very young Domaine Mongeard Mugneret from 2014. The Belgian endive added a nice bitter contrast to the richness of the foie and a bit of crunch to offset the textures of the chicken and foie duo. What can you say about Robuchon’s legendary potato puree but wow — Simple perfection. I have made these potatoes a thousand times and they still are a perfect treat. If they are not on your menu when you eat here — order them anyways.
Robuchon’s legendary potato puree. The ninth and tenth courses were desserts. My second major complaint of the night is where the hell was the cheese course. Maybe I am a bit like Pavlov’s dogs and have been long conditioned that when I eat high-end French restaurants cheese will be served. What I would have given for a perfectly ripe Vacherin or Epoisse.
Desserts one and two. The first dessert was a beautiful mango mousse served with coconut and caramelized rice puffs. The second and my personal favorite was a pear mousse served in a chocolate cup and a beautiful chocolate tuile. The tuile was perfectly buttery and delicious.
The seating overlooking the kitchen. Hats off to the stellar kitchen staff for a great meal. Overall our experience was incredible and I will return one day. My only complaints were service related; our waiter dropped silverware and empty plates twice in a row while talking to us. I know that may seem like small issues to most of you, and really they are in the overall picture, but normally you do not see that in Michelin starred restaurants and need to be pointed out. Our wine steward seemed nervous, and it felt a bit awkward on his visits to our table.
I would not hesitate to go back and enjoy Chef Jimmy’s insanely delicious cooking again. I highly recommend Atelier de Joel Robuchon to anyone looking for seriously great food.
