The Lost Lagoon is the most fun, bonkers and extravagant immersive experience right now. I know because I went, and I loved it. And it’s not surprising given that the culinary and creative geniuses from Bompas and Parr are behind it. The location? The basement of a Shepherd’s Bush mall which houses the world’s largest underground boating lake. Yes, this experience involves a boating lake underground. Is that even possible? Yes it is.

Visitors are provided with a pirate tricorn hat and a handkerchief which contains a special message. Soon there will be a bit of walking blindfolded involved — yes it does feel like Netflix’s Bird Box for a bit. But do not worry, the first delicious Captain Morgan rum cocktail will be provided while you get the introduction on what’s to come.

I choose to live here because I’m love with how multicultural it is, and to be very frank, I’m mostly in love of its Indian food. To second Lonely Planet: Tooting’s is gritty, but wonderful.

VEGAN TASTING IN LONDON @ GAUTHIER SOHO

For my birthday this year one my boyfriend’s gifts was a vegan tasting menu in a London restaurant which was once awarded a Michelin star.

My boyfriend isn’t vegan, and in fact loves any kind of meat, so when eating out we normally resort in omnivorous restaurants, and most of the time in Indian (which I love) and Chinese. None of my girlfriends are vegan either, so I normally end up eating chips or salad, which I don’t mind at all. The vegan restaurants I’ve been in London have been nice but still not mind blowing.

On the day of the booking, we grabbed a refreshing pomegranate gin & tonic in Muriel’s Kitchen and then headed to the venue: Gauthier Soho.
