Anyone for gyros?

This gyros from The Athenian at Boxpark Wembley was amazing! Succulent, juicy and gorgeous. Also, today being Halloween gives me the opportunity for the perfect #TBT to a divine Halloween afternoon tea that I had a few years ago. Happy Halloween!

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…

A little bit of Scoff & Banter

I haven’t posted on here for a bit because I’ve been at Green Man festival in Crickhowell. This is a lovely festival with such a chilled vibe. I had a great few days with friends, listening to music and relaxing in the sunshine (and sheltering from the rain!) On a completely unrelated note, a little…

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…

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…

Ridgmont Station Tea Rooms

I really love visiting tea rooms. This one in Ridgmont, Bedfordshire, didn’t disappoint. The tea rooms are a converted station building and are beautifully set- out, cosy and quaint. The food isn’t half- bad either! A lovely Easter Saturday treat 🙂

Breakfast on Albert Docks

Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day (along with lunch and dinner. And brunch). In the week, because of my work schedule it’s pretty simple, but at the weekend I like to go for something a little bit more exciting (toast, you’re up). I was lucky enough to enjoy breakfast on Albert…
