Plum + Spilt Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

Plum + Spilt Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

I visited Plum and Split Milk off the back of this Hot Dinners offer I had. 50% off the weekend brunch menu price was enticing and the food and venue looked upper class to boot. It ended up being a bit snobby in service but […]

Volcanic Grill, Dalston, London

Volcanic Grill, Dalston, London

The crowd erupts into applause. We were promised the best bacon cheeseburgers in town and boy, did we get them. Volcanic Grill is a six week old pop-up kitchen residency specialising in a South African-barbecue style of cooking. They’re located in the very hip neighbourhood […]

Stika, Budapest

Stika, Budapest

If you liked it, you should have Stika fork in it. Stika in District VII of Budapest is a very hip coffee and brunch joint that’s popular with the locals. So popular they even ran out of half the menu on the following day when I visited! The cafe’s setting is familiar with industrial chic screaming from the interior. Lots of natural light and a rather serene atmosphere as the crowds hadn’t settled yet. What can I say? I enjoy an early morning start to make the most of my holiday days.

The Wilson St Pantry, Merchant City, Glasgow

The Wilson St Pantry, Merchant City, Glasgow

I’m a little surprised this industrial-chic brunch venue doesn’t have more reviews and more hurrah. I mean on Zomato, there’s lots of good vibes on Tripadvisor, Facebook and Google. Our group of friends enjoyed our visit to The Wilson Street Pantry a lot. The food […]

Zorza, Śródmieście Południowe, Warsaw

Zorza, Śródmieście Południowe, Warsaw

I did my part in celebrating Canada Day with a maple and bacon French toast morning at Zorza. Turns out  it was a bit too early for most cafes around the place in Warsaw, but Zorza was a more than worthy consolation. Service was efficient […]

Sally Lunn’s, Bath

Sally Lunn’s, Bath

The origins of the Sally Lunn bun are shrouded in myth, although the Sally Lunn cafe here in Bath takes ownership of at least, part of that history. It’s a bun that’s not a bun. It’s a part bun, part cake, part bread and overall, a giant loaf of carbs. There’s options both savoury and sweet which is intriguing in itself and shattered my previous Kiwi expectations of what the Sally Lunn is. My choice was the double bacon whilst my brother went for the vegetable soup with quarter Sally Lunn. The bacon is nice and chunky and the bun itself is crazy huge. Without all that frosting it’s only a lightly sweet bun. So good if you remove yourself from the fact it all feels a little tourist trap-py. I wasn’t as impressed with the vegetable soup. It tasted of the canned variety with no texture or seasoning. The cafe is all abuzz with the tourists which keep it busy, but the Lunn might not be as exciting in these modern times.

Frankie & Benny’s, Finchley Road, London

Frankie & Benny’s, Finchley Road, London

This chain is so dire. With a general level of crowd, you’d think it would be half decent but I’ve only been disappointed on every occasion. On the plus side, it is fast so it’s all over quick enough. The prices are expensive too, so […]

Pimlico Fresh, Victoria, London

Pimlico Fresh, Victoria, London

My point of residence here in London affords me easy access to three handy stations. That’s Victoria, Pimlico and Westminster. Despite that, I do find myself venturing further afield then sampling some of the local cuisine around here. Time Out London was so generous to label […]

Dishoom, King’s Cross, London

Dishoom, King’s Cross, London

Dreams collide in the bacon naan roll at Dishoom. It was my most hyped up dish and it took me a few months to find my way to it. I was meeting a new friend and we had decided on checking on the Dishoom here in King’s Cross. Of the three Dishooms I’ve visited so far, this is my favourite interior by a mile. There’s oodles of seating about and it’s generally very light filled and airy. In some of the more metropolitan Dishrooms you get a sense of crampiness. This could have been due to the vibes of the evening, but I’m sure the King’s Cross is massive in space. Even at breakfast time, it’s always worthwhile booking a table like we did, as the wide space does fill up.
