Kids Eat Free At Cinnamon Kitchen! We Review The Battersea Restaurant

It’s taken me far too long to check Cinnamon Kitchen off my list. Ever since I heard about its Weekend Power Brunch, I’ve been dreaming about swinging by and feasting on Bangla-style Scotch egg, Bombay scrambled eggs and pancakes with garam masala ice cream. A lengthy and satisfying brunch in Covent Garden’s Cinnamon Bazaar set me onto celebrity chef Vivek Singh’s line of Cinnamon restaurants, so I was confident Cinnamon Kitchen would too be something special.

Housed beneath one of Battersea’s railway arches, the restaurant has an industrial feel with exposed brick and a metal structure acting as a centrepiece to the dining room. I admire the spacious feel of the inside and the outdoor terrace, which is perfect for dining al fresco throughout the summer months. The restaurant forms part of the Battersea Circus West Village development and sits alongside two other solid London favourites: Wright Brothers and Tapas Brindisa. As of yet, this area still remains very quiet, but now with a slew of river-side restaurants and a brewery, it’s only a matter of time before the area brings about its own buzz.

Date Night in Soho: XU Teahouse & Restaurant Review

In line with the Cinnamon Collection, Cinnamon Kitchen offers up a menu of contemporary Indian cuisine with a fusion of East and Western influence. Banana leaf wrapped sea bass was delightfully succulent with a chargrilled coating that mingled nicely with tangy, fresh tomato. Honeyed pork ribs cooled with curried yoghurt were an absolute treat. For mains, Tandoori chicken breast was served with an indulgently creamy and coconutty korma and chargrilled pollock with a zingy melon chutney was a surprising winner for us. One minor thing: much of the menu erred on the side of a little too mild for us, though that isn’t necessarily a negative for everyone.

The Junior Menu offers a good mix of gently-spiced dishes, including pan-fried pollock daal, veggies and yellow lentils and herbed chicken skewer. Until 31st August 2019, children under 12 can dine for free from the kids’ menu. One child’s meal is valid per adult’s meal that’s ordered from the a la carte menu.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
