Teacup Kitchen, Northern Quarter, Manchester

Teacup Kitchen, Northern Quarter, Manchester

This post is going to be slightly misleading, so I apologise in advance for this. The Teacup Kitchen is a super cute cake shop, but I went there for dinner. This means I would have had quite a different experience to anyone else who’s given […]

Tacos De Lyon, Fes, Morocco

Tacos De Lyon, Fes, Morocco

I enjoyed my retreat to the concrete jungle that is Borj Fes. It’s a pretty standard mall-type situation, but that’s not such a standard thing after having spent three days in the medina. It was time for some nice, greasy food to clog the arteries […]

H2O Juice Bar & Vegan Cafe, Corralejo, Canary Islands

H2O Juice Bar & Vegan Cafe, Corralejo, Canary Islands

I was reading my Lonely Planet guide to the Canary Islands when I stumbled upon the food section, with the author declaring it was a bit of a meat feast. Perhaps it’s a bit outdated but fortunately there are some options for vegetarians and vegans on the island of Fuerteventura. Right before my ferry I stopped at H2O Juice Bar & Vegan Cafe in Corralejo for a lighter bite.

Hiltl Restaurant, Sihlstrasse, Zurich

Hiltl Restaurant, Sihlstrasse, Zurich

Vegetarians are real spoilt by the top class restaurants in Zurich. And Haus Hiltl is one of the best of them. It holds the Guinness world record being the oldest continuously open vegetarian restaurant in the world. First opening its doors in 1898 it has evolved […]

Marrakech Me Outside: Tips for Traveling Morocco

Marrakech Me Outside: Tips for Traveling Morocco

I found my time in the Kingdom of Morocco eye opening, and at times, challenging. It was my first experience of being in Africa and there are certainly a lot of things that are different from back home. I researched plenty of advice before the […]

Freddy Schilling – Die Hamburger Manufaktur, Cologne

Freddy Schilling – Die Hamburger Manufaktur, Cologne

Time for another burger review! On this weekend I was in Cologne (or Köln) and was massively hungry after spending the day at Kölner Zoo. Looking at all those animals all morning and afternoon left me, well, salivating! Freddy Schilling – Die Hamburger Manufaktur stands for homemade burgers made from sustainably grown ingredients. And dang! Was it great, one of my top burgers. I had the goat cheese with beef patty and such a happy mix of cheese, honey and meat.

Dishoom Carnaby, Soho, London

Dishoom Carnaby, Soho, London

Easily one of my favourite London restaurants, Dishoom Carnaby does so much so well so it’s hard to disagree it being such a beloved institution of the city. I’ve done more than my share of Dishoom dining here, but this was a time that I […]

Sam’s Travel Journal: Porto

Sam’s Travel Journal: Porto

Two moments of pure terror characterised my first day in Porto. The first, an attack at lunchtime. Callously and suddenly they struck. All for a fry, or a nibble of my burger; their grubby pecks had me recoiling. The pigeons in Porto are next level! […]

Salvation In Noodles, Finsbury Park, London

Salvation In Noodles, Finsbury Park, London

Salvation in Noodles might not have the shiniest service, but it’s a fully acceptable hipster Vietnamese option. Finsbury Park doesn’t have the most numerous eating options, so it’s a fair choice for when you need it. For me, Salvation in Noodles (also self-referential as SIN), is a handy backup for the likes of Dotori, and when I need something that’s slightly less shameful than Eden’s Cottage. I do love the place though.
