It’s been a while since we have found a great new burger in London worth writing about but the time has come in the form of Ichibuns! Ichibuns is a Japanese restaurant next to the W Hotel in Chinatown. Its a super cool restaurant specialising in Japanese Wagyu beef, so they feature beef in a lot of their food (including their Cheeseburger Spring Rolls – more on that later). The menu is not only beef though, they also have fresh sushi, noodle dishes, steamed buns, gyoza etc so there is something for everyone! The sushi looks really good but we were there to try the famous Wagyu beef!

Ichibuns also has a cocktail menu with unique yummy cocktails all served in super cute Boba cups! We had the Yuzu & Grapefruit Collins and the Grape Caipiroska – we had never seen a grape flavoured Caipiroska before and it was too good, with fresh grapes and grapefruit juice! Now onto the food, a friend recommended for us to try the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls and the Ichibuns Burger, so we ordered both, as well as the Wagyu beef steamed buns. We were very intrigued about the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls and they were everything we were expecting and more! Sadly we didn’t take any pics as they were devoured instantly but they are spring rolls with Wagyu burger beef inside, served with burger sauce – they are life changing! The steamed buns were okay, they were closed buns with only beef inside and not very much of it, so it was mainly bun – good but could have been better!

Now onto the burger… its a big statement but its definitely the cheesiest and dirtiest burger we have ever had! It has about three generous layers of cheese in it, one 30 day aged Wagyu beef patty, caramelised onion and burger sauce . The burger didn’t come with any salad inside but it was all so moist that it didn’t need anything else. The bun was a super soft brioche style bun and the meat was super soft too, as well as being full of flavour. The fries were also great, they were thinner than a typical fry so were very light but delish – on the whole it was a big thumbs up from us!

Have you been to Ichibuns?

Whenever we are asked to describe our styles…  the one phrase we continue to use is ‘same, but different’ and we definitely think that phrase perfectly describes our outfits on our latest catch up. Most days we’re dressed practically the same and some days complete opposite, but that’s the fun of fashion and expressing your style!

We definitely share the LOVE for colour this season. We are especially feeling super girlie at the moment and crushing on pinks – Miranda’s to-die-for pastel pink jacket has been a go-to this season paired with a slogan tee, mom jeans and KILLER boots. Sid wearing some our all the time favourite trends in one… stripes and denim paired with a beret (thank you universe for hats on bad hair days!).

 Sid’s outfit details:
Top: Zara
Trousers: Zara
Backpack: Brandy Melville
Sunglasses: H&M
Beret: Rokit

Miranda’s Outfit Details:
Tee: Miss Pap
Jeans: Topshop Mom
Jacket: Bershka

A new burger joint has opened up in Kilburn, we’ve heard lots about it so obvi we went to check it out. Soul Store West has been open for around 3 months now and is an ex-nightclub space, so it is a very big restaurant where they host live music nights too.

When we went, we both ordered our usual cheeseburgers, with chilli cheese fries and mac & cheese (cos there’s no such thing as too much cheese!) The cheeseburgers were quite big and super messy! It came with a pretty chunky beef patty, lettuce, tomato, a generous helping of mayo and some kind of secret topping that wasn’t written in the menu so we weren’t sure what it was! It looked like minced beef but with a sauce that had a slightly sweet taste. This extra meat/sauce plus the mayo made it an extra sloppy one – but delish at the same time!

Sides-wise, we were pleasantly surprised by the mac & cheese, we’re very picky with our mac & cheese so were happy when the crispy topped macaroni came, with a thick cheesy sauce with good flavour, as opposed to a liquidy bland sauce that you usually get. The chilli cheese fries were also great, french fries smothered with real cheese (no plastic cheese sauces here!) with chilli beef on top – super tasty but we over ordered, as always!

Overall we would definitely go back to Soul Store West, the restaurant mainly specialises in ribs so we would def go back and try those. The burgers were definitely good, not the best we’ve ever had but the sides made up for it!

It is worth mentioning that we felt that the space was lacking some ambience, it is quite large and has a kind of ’empty’ feeling when you’re there, it seems that a lot of people go there for drinks rather than food so it can get quite loud in the evenings. The service also wasn’t the best as when we went, the waitresses weren’t that knowledgeable on the menu, there wasn’t a drinks menu available, and we were told that quite a few things on the menu weren’t available, which is understandable for a new restaurant – but it has been open 3 months and was empty at the time!

Have you tried Soul Store West?

A while ago we were contacted by the lovely Urenna, of Cashmere App (www.cashmereapp.co.uk) who asked if we wanted to do a shoot and interview for the app, we checked it out and thought it was an awesome idea so we jumped at the chance! The app is a luxury savings app that helps you to put aside money each month to save for luxury items!

Here is one of our looks for the day; Miranda went for a cool casual vibe with all black, with denim and lace up details, adding a pop of colour with a Charlotte Simone pom pom hat. Sid wore this season’s layered frill trousers with a brown jacket at super trendy Gucci belt.
