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…

Meatballs Al Forno

This is probably the ideal lunchtime dish for me. The meatballs were succulent and the sauce was rich and full of flavour. Zizzi, Victoria

Tapas at Salvador and Amanda

Salvador and Amanda is a beautiful and authentic Spanish restaurant, located in London’s Leicester Square. Although it’s been there for around 15 years, I wasn’t actually aware of it until my team held our Christmas party there last month. The restaurant boasts a surrealist art- deco interior, in which patrons are encased in curtained- off…

Vegan Junk Food

As some people may already know, one of my good friends, Anna, and her partner are vegan. Before meeting them, I didn’t know much about veganism. Since they came into my life in 2013, I have spent time with them, educating myself about the vegan lifestyle and what it entails, which has been somewhat of…

Eat With A Friend Day

Today is Eat With A Friend Day! To honour this special occasion, this is exactly what I did. On our way to the light festival at Syon Gardens, my friend and I stopped off at at One Kew Road, Richmond, to have dinner. We both chose the spitroast chicken, drizzled in truffle and garlic sauce,…

Birthday Dinner

I haven’t posted on here for a bit, but this is something that’s worth shouting about. For my birthday a few weeks ago, my friend and I visited Cote Brasserie along London’s South Bank. I have a soft spot for French food so this lured me in. We had the chicken drizzled with garlic butter…
