My food travels in the Netherlands: Haarlem, The Hague and Amsterdam

Haarlem is a cute historical city, with an old market square that boasts several museums and an impressive church named (imaginatively) Grote Kirk. The city’s proximity to the sea, and Noord-Holland‘s fertile farmlands, means that food in Haarlem is wonderfully fresh and delicious. After spending the day visiting the flower gardens in Keukenhof (one of…

My food travels in the Netherlands: Utrecht

I fail at travel blogging. I’ve been back from the Netherlands for over a month now and have been way too slow in uploading my pictures of the food we ate over there. Utrecht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, built along two tree-lined canals (the main one being Oudegracht). It is…

Kerb InKERBator Weekender

Kerb InKERBator Weekender at London’s Southbank Centre is a foodie’s dream. Over the course of a weekend, street food sellers offer up a selection of tasty treats for just £5, in a bid to shape the future of London street food. A festival of street food and flavours? What’s not to love? Cally Munchie

Bristol: A City of Culinary Pleasures

Bristol is a foodie’s paradise. There’s such a vast selection of good places to eat throughout the city. I was lucky enough to be gifted the chance to go on a food tour when I visited my friend Anna there a few months ago. Also- our tour guide was vegan as was my friend, so…

About last night…Mexican authenticity

I came across Santo Remedio completely by accident, purely because I’ve walked by it a few times and thought it looked cosy. It was a happy accident though, as Santo Remedio has appeared on several lists of the best Mexican restaurants in London. I adore Mexican food so this is my idea of a good…

The Barbary, Covent Garden

Being labelled ‘the best restaurant in London’ gives The Barbary in Neal’s Yard a lot to live up to. The little sister of established London eatery The Palomar, the restaurant takes its inspiration from the Barbary coast. Good thing the food is amazing then…read my review on Weekend Notes here

Comforting Ramen

I think this was the restaurant’s Soho Ramen. Tonkotsu, Soho. There are lots of branches of Tonkotsu scattered around London. Check out my review of Tonkotsu for Weekend Notes here:

Warming up the night

I don’t eat much Indian food, but when I do, I go to town! Here is a picture of a chicken nariyal I enjoyed recently. I think there were samosas and prawn crackers lingering nearby as well. The Elachi, Belper, Derbyshire

Finally tried Haggis

I managed to visit Scotland finally- after years of wanting to go there. It’s been top of my wish list for a while now. And whilst I was there, I grabbed the opportunity to try haggis. I decided to have mine as part of a burger. Verdict: it was delicious. Haggis and burger- The Auld…

Lebanese Food

As part of my birthday celebrations,  my boyfriend took me out last week for a Lebanese meal.  Lebanese food is characterised by plenty of starch,  wholefoods and vegetables.  Red meat is not as used as widely as other types of meat,  such as lamb. I haven’t eaten a lot of Lebanese food so was excited…
