Hoppers, Soho, London

Hoppers, Soho, London

One of my absolute favourite restaurants in London is Hoppers. And I’m not alone there, there is a constant stream of fans also queuing for this authentic Sri Lankan experience. Expect to wait some time if you’re coming during the usual dinner and lunch rush. […]

Mazel Tov, Budapest

Mazel Tov, Budapest

If there’s gonna be one restaurant I’d recommend for anyone heading to Budapest, it’ll be the one that was recommended to me! My cousin lived a little while in the capital, getting to know the scene, and Mazel Tov was top of her list. And […]

Eska, Karlín, Prague

Eska, Karlín, Prague

It’s often very worthwhile making a trek across the city for a good meal. That was the case for my brunch over at Eska. The store is a grand two storeys, and there’s plenty of seating despite my concerns when I first walked in. It’s a busy store at that too, they do lots of takeout orders and offer a wide range of baked goods. I should also add this was hike to get to, but there are some public transport links available. Sam prefers to get the exercise in and more importantly, save myself the hassle of figuring something out!

Le Carbet d’Oc, Toulouse

Le Carbet d’Oc, Toulouse

So… we weren’t quite ready for how late Toulouse dinnertimes start. We had been pondering why most of the street felt so quiet. It turns out a lot of places don’t begin their dinner service until 8pm. We were already hungry.

Banana Tree, Soho, London

Banana Tree, Soho, London

I’ve had the Tastecard a little while now, but never got around to using it. The restaurants featured on the program are largely chain-based. Or not very good ones. So this is my first experience with that in hand. Banana Tree is located in the heart of […]

La Planxa, Nice

La Planxa, Nice

I’m a torn man. I liked the food at La Planxa but the service was terrible and it ultimately overshadowed the dining experience as a whole. I was led into La Planxa due to the positive Tripadvisor reviews (occasionally dodgy at times, I know) and the menu prices are fab. Most of the mains are under 15€ including my La Plance Paysanne.

Brunch & Cake, Barcelona

Brunch & Cake, Barcelona

Cake for breakfast? Things sure a little different here at Brunch & Cake in Barcelona. There’s a world of new possibilities after all, so why be bound by conventional brunches?I was on the hunt for a flashy brunch and this came up trumps on my […]

Café Imperial, Nové Město, Prague

Café Imperial, Nové Město, Prague

One of the consistently top ranked restaurants in Prague is Cafe Imperial, and it’s easy to understand why after one sitting. The service is top notch, the food is incredibly tasty and fresh, and it’s a place that feels like a class of its own. […]

Mamma Pizza, Oslo

Mamma Pizza, Oslo

I was very prepared to shell out a small fortune for dining in Oslo. I kept things manageable by picking up some cheap eat options along the way. For example, I started with a slice (or whole) of pizza pie from Mamma Pizza. In only six months the restaurant became one of Oslo’s top ranked restaurants. The owner, Luca Zannini, arrived in the city in 2012. He opened a pizza al taglio using knowledge from his hometown of Bologna and his passion from making people happy through pizza.
