Eating My Way Through London: Iznik

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great Christmas with plenty of opportunities for festive eating and drinking! I’ve been a bit out of it due to being afflicted by Covid. However, I’ve decided to get back to blogging by writing about my trip to the Turkish restaurant Iznik a few months back.… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Iznik

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

Sushi-making and Sake*

Happy October! The trees are changing colour and there’s a definite chill in the air. I love Autumn- it makes me want to stack up on carbs and chai. I’ve also been thinking back to a sushi-making class I went to in London this time last year. I’ve been a bit lax in adding this… Continue reading Sushi-making and Sake*

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
