Eating My Way Through London: Busaba, Stratford

We went to this place for a work lunch on my manager’s suggestion. I liked what I had, my manager didn’t. Make of that what you will! Personally I found the Pad Kwetio tasty but not very filling. I do have a big appetite though. My colleagues had a variety of dishes, all which looked… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Busaba, Stratford

Foodies do the West Coast of Canada

Autumn is my favourite time of the year. I’ve written countless blog posts about it and save my sweater collection all year round, ready for the Autumn months. This year, I started my Autumn off by spending it in the Canadian Rockies. I’ve really wanted to go there for sometime. After a nine hour flight,… Continue reading Foodies do the West Coast of Canada

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… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Casse- Croute

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… Continue reading Taking Inspiration From Persia

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… Continue reading Eat Like A Greek

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… Continue reading Maltese Platter

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… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Bellanger

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

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… Continue reading My food travels in the Netherlands: Utrecht
