The Japanese in London | Anzu restaurant review | Cuts for Him

Apparently, the month of August is counted as summer in London. I guess the weather has other ideas. Well at least for the first two week of August anyway.

I was determined not to allow the gloomy weather to ruin my experience at the new Japanese restaurant called Anzu in St Jame’s market. I wanted to share the experience with my girlfriend whom I invited to join me as she is a foodie too. We got off Piccadilly circus tube station which is the nearest tube station to Anzu. In fact Anzu is less than five minute walk from the station (depending on how fast you walk) which makes it perfect for public transport links.

Seeing that we wanted to have lunch, we got to the restaurant around 2pm and got shown to our seats by a very helpful waitress. As we sat down, I noticed that the restaurant Continue reading The Japanese in London | Anzu restaurant review | Cuts for Him

Cultured in Culture | Government wharf, Freetown

Cultured in Culture, or The Crowd – My people, or Standing out “with” the crowd or so many other titles I could have given this post looking at the photos my sister took of me on holiday in Freetown.

The idea to do this shoot was borne out of a strong desire to capture Freetown or even the people in a way that is very unassuming and unrehearsed. I had no desire to take photos at the plush side of town whether along the peninsular where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world or indeed on the beautiful hills to the west of town. Government Wharf itself has a long and interesting history but I won’t go into it now. Partly because I do not know much of the history but yeah lets just leave that along shall we lol. So I will leave that to the history buffs out there to dissect.

Big market, Freetown

Now where was I? oh yeah the reason for shooting at the Wharf. I personally think the Wharf represent the true hustle and bustle of Freetown in a way very few places do. It shows a people with unique individual stories that come together for a common purpose. The purpose of buying or to selling, rendering a service or solicit one, to see or to be seen. To chisel Continue reading Cultured in Culture | Government wharf, Freetown

The Wigmore | The bar with a Michel Roux Jr menu | Cuts for him

At around 5:45pm yesterday, I shut my bedroom door behind me and rushed to the front door of my flat with my sneakers in one hand and my phone in the other. I was speaking to my sister who was already waiting for me at Oxford circus. We were heading to the preview for the latest and swankiest bar in central London called The Wigmore.

Judging from the tone in my sister’s voice, she was getting slightly impatient waiting for me. She was my plus one for the event and has been looking forward to it ever since I told her about it.

Long story short, we eventually got to The Wigmore and immediately thought to myself this could possibly be my new handout spot. The atmosphere was electric Continue reading The Wigmore | The bar with a Michel Roux Jr menu | Cuts for him

Moët & Chandon July Festival | Gents day | Cuts for Him

Wow! Yeah thats right I said wow. I have never started an article on Cuts of Him with a wow. That’s exactly how I feel about the Moet & Chandon July Festival at the Adnams racecourse.

I received an invite from The Jockey Club a few weeks ago to the Newmarket racecourse and I have been looking forward to it ever since. However, I have to say that nothing could have prepared me for such an adrenaline filled day.

My journey to Newmarket for the races was a bit dramatic due to miscommunication at Kings Cross station between myself and a station staff. The train journey itself went Continue reading Moët & Chandon July Festival | Gents day | Cuts for Him
