Afternoon Tea at Ridgmont Station Tea Rooms

This is a delightful tea room situated in the former Victorian (1846) Ridgmont railway station building’s Ladies Waiting Room. I’ve been here a few times previously in 2019 and think of it as a bit of a hidden gem. With my love of anything vintage and retro, it’s right up my street. I’ve been keen… Continue reading Afternoon Tea at Ridgmont Station Tea Rooms

Zzang, Korean restaurant

Zzang is a cute and cosy Korean spot situated in London’s Swiss Cottage area. It was ideal to grab a bite to eat on a rainy afternoon. My friend Jo and I hadn’t eaten much Korean food beforehand, but this was a good intro. The food was fresh, tasty and comforting. We had the Udon… Continue reading Zzang, Korean restaurant

Here is a round-up… Continue reading Dining out in beautiful Bedfordshire

It has all the makings… Continue reading Mexican at the Bodega Negra Cafe

Sweet Treats and Seafood in Brighton

As lockdown continues to ease across the UK, I thought I’d finally get around to writing a post on my trip to Brighton- or rather, the food I ate on my trip to Brighton. This trip was quite a while ago now, so my memory is unclear on a few things. Therefore, I decided to… Continue reading Sweet Treats and Seafood in Brighton

Pasta at Vapiano

I was looking through old pictures on my phone and came across some photos of my visit to Vapiano last year. I’m not obsessed with pasta (okay, I am), but pasta is great to photograph. Is that just me? Anyway, Vapiano is a canteen- style Italian restaurant that caters to the ‘swipe and go’ generation.… Continue reading Pasta at Vapiano
