This family-run Thai restaurant sits right on Clapham Common in south London, and enjoys great support from the local community.
There are several tables outside for warmer days, and bench-style seating inside that adds to a convivial atmosphere. The service is friendly and efficient, plus an open kitchen adds to the atmosphere as flames leap from sizzling pans.
The menu is fairly standard, sticking to tried-and-tested favorites, like pad Thai and noodle soup dishes, but the quality marks Pepper Tree from the crowd. All of the dishes appear freshly made with great ingredients, and the flavors are spot on.
You can get beer, wine or soft drinks to accompany your meal, and all at reasonable prices too. Expect to pay $5 for a beer, and around $12 for a main course. It’s eminently affordable for a restaurant in London, and if you’re in a hurry the speedy service will be music to your ears.
With that in mind Pepper Tree is more of a place to grab some food before you go out, rather than a spot to linger over a romantic meal. It fulfils that role well, and there will be no complaints from this regular customer.

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Choosing a summer vacation destination is rarely a last-minute endeavor. Depending on your career, school or schedule, summer can be that one season to let loose, vacation and completely get away for a little while, making it a fun one to plan for.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.
