Eating My Way Through London: Casse- Croute

After my flirtations with Greece and Persia, it seems like I’m turning back to French cuisine. Visiting Casse- Croute makes you feel like you’re dining in a French village. It may not be the cheapest, but it’s not ridiculously overpriced either. Casse- Croute, simply put, is fab. Situated in the thriving area of Bermondsey, it…

Taking Inspiration From Persia

Nestled in amongst the hipster pubs and fashionable restaurants in the trendy Northern Quarter of Manchester, The Patron is a lovely little bar serving cheap Middle- Eastern food. It was perfect for a light bite for lunch. This Kofta b’siniyah was really delicious- recommended especially if you’re looking for something different from the usual to…

Eat Like A Greek

Souvlaki is Greece’s favourite street food. A healthier alternative to fast food, it is sold everywhere in Greece but there are plenty of places to get it elsewhere, especially in London. Also, it is delicious. I headed down to the Great British Food Festival at Chiswick House a few weeks ago and sampled their gorgeous…

Maltese Platter

The super- hot weather has put me in a holiday mood and has led me to think back to my trip to Malta last year. Maltese cuisine is heavily influenced by Italy- wholesome and full of flavour. If you visit Malta, give their Maltese platter a try. It is a selection box of several Maltese…

Eating My Way Through London: Bellanger

Bellanger has the feel of a neighbourhood place, rather than a trendy London eaterie. That might be due to its location in the twinkly, cosy section of Upper Street in Islington. Apparently Bellanger is ‘inspired by the Alsatian brasseries of Paris’. If you’re not down with Alsatian dining, then expect to be a little more…

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…
