MO' DAY INSPO /// BUFF BITES
For this week's buff bites post we thought what better than inspiring you for mother's day! With soooo many restaurants across London it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to choose... so whether you want brunch/lunch/sunday dinner we have rounded up our favs for you! You know how much we love a restaurant... ✿
We live just outside of London and hidden gems are very hard to find in our area, but recently we have discovered FLOURISH.
Flourish started as a bakery supplying bread to all of Hertfordshire's 5* hotels.. and then a star was born, they converted their bakery which is situated in an industrial estate, into a cute and rustic coffee, cake and brunch place. Perfect for you and your mUMma
Going to be honest we hadn't heard the best things about this place but we went a few weeks ago and it didn't disappoint. The clue to the food is in the name, think HOT DOGS, burgers, schniztel and a good Sunday lunch vibe. Start with a bottle of champagne, oysters or tartare and enjoy the atmosphere and the decor. The outside terrace with big white fluffy chairs is perfect for a sunny slash cold day in March.
I'm 100% sure you aren't going to take much convincing to book this beautiful restaurant @ The London Edition. Tick - it is for reallly special occasions but your mum IS special! Nothing beats the ambience here, beautiful people all around and possibly Kendall Jenner spotting! Not to mention the most stunning food and cocktails. It will make your MUMS DAY!
Omg!!!!! Professor Green and we will tell you how insane this place is. It has been rated as one of the top roasts in London and OMG you genuinely cannot beat it! You and your mum will have a mother's day to remember. Start with a Bloody Mary and then just go in.. forget the starter you need to save room in that hungry stomach of yours! Choose between a 55 day age rump , a cornish lamb leg or a pork loin, or if you're not in a decisive mood - go for the "ALL IN".. All meals are accompanied by bone marrow gravy (yes it is as good as it sounds), yorkshire puddings and all the other trimmings. LOOK AT THAT CAULI CHEESE!!
Book here: before we do!
Bla Bla Bla who wants to go to Nobu anymore and spend £900 on a bit of SUSHI? Well we don't and we don't advise you to either. I mean we aren't disputing there are some real beaut sushi restaurants in London but we advise you to try Oliver Maki, especially with your mum as it is the perfect place for a nice, calm and relaxing evening. Oliver Maki is a new way of eating and ordering. The food is Japanese fusion with a touch of mediterranean influences. When you sit down you are automatically excited by the fact you can order on the provided I Pad.. with beautiful imagery of the food. YES PLS... i'll add this to my wish list... wow this is like a online shop on Net.A.Porter!

If you're not already dead from this day of eating / drinking, we have a must visit GELATO parlour in the heart of Soho. (Picture us saying Gelatooo in American).. Gelupo is somewhere really unique to London, and having experienced true authentic Gelato in Venice, it had some living up to do. Gelupo did not disappoint - with so many choices of sorbet and gelato - pistachio, salted caramel, coconut, the list goes on! Also what makes it such a great place is, the interior is filled with authentic Italian sweets and treats!
Well that rounds up our best choices for your Mother's Day picks! We hope you & your mumma enjoy your day!
Lots of Love,
