Oh Snap: Cheap Eurostar Tickets

Oh Snap: Cheap Eurostar Tickets

I’ve raved about the Eurostar service on previous occasions and if you’re organised you can benefit from their sales. Tickets go as low as £19-29. However, if you’re more of a spontaneous traveller there’s another option that could suit: Eurostar Snap.

Zenith – Brunch & Cocktails Bar, Porto

Zenith – Brunch & Cocktails Bar, Porto

The busiest brunch place I came across in Porto was Zenith Brunch and Cocktails Bar. The queue is insane! I was looking for a morning pick up and Google pointed me here, with its combination of many and good reviews. Long story short: I didn’t […]

Even More Travel Optimisation Tips

With so many trips under my belt, surely there’s some next-level wisdom I can pass on? These tips are around travel optimisation, how to get the most of your time away. There’s a few new things I’ve started doing over my more recent trips to make sure that a) I have a great time and b) nothing goes to custard. Other than custard, which I could eat/ drink all day.

Trade, Spitalfields, London

Trade, Spitalfields, London

I was expecting a little bit better when I headed into Trade, a coffee shop and cafe located on Commercial Street and Spitalfields Market. It’s a short stroll that makes it perfect for my morning routine, but the food and coffee didn’t hit the mark […]

My Old Place, Aldgate, London

My Old Place, Aldgate, London

So there is good Chinese food in Aldgate! For the longest while I lost all hope there was anything authentic in this corner of London, but My Old Place surprised – and proved me wrong. It’s a hotspot for Szechuan cuisine and you’ll see that […]

I feel like I’ve come full circle. Or should that be full pizza? The first time I set foot in Pizza East in Shoreditch, I was in my first month. A shape of a wannabe food blogger, full of innocence and just trying to making it big in London. I’m still that now, possibly even more in the ‘big’ department.

Dominique Ansel Bakery, Belgravia, London

Dominique Ansel Bakery, Belgravia, London

Dominique Ansel Bakery has been absolutely raiding my Instagram over the last year. Foodies all across London have been going nuts for their photogenic pastries, and of course – this is the home of the Cronut. Master pastry chef Dominique Ansel started his trade in […]

Joe’s Shanghai, Lower East Side, New York

Joe’s Shanghai, Lower East Side, New York

New York City… absolute food heaven! What a treat it was to be in this city for a food wannabe like me. Every meal I had over this oh-so-short week delivered something magical, memorable and lots of inspiration for future cooking and dining. For an outstanding meal with some inspiration from the east, we headed to Joe’s Shanghai – the branch in Chinatown. The best soup dumplings, but other dishes were just as impressive.
