Coqfighter Chicken & Beer, Shoreditch, London

For a London food blog, I haven’t done much London restaurant reviews lately at all! That’s because my plans changed a bit and I ended up traveling for a while. As I’m continuing to do so. In between all of that I always return back […]

In a New York Minute: Everything I’ve done

In a New York Minute: Everything I’ve done

Two trips to New York and so much done! But still heaps to go. Over the years I’ve collated so many lists of recommendations from friends and now I’m going to put them all in the one place. Here’s the things that I’ve managed to […]

Miss Pavlova, Baixa, Porto

Miss Pavlova, Baixa, Porto

How exciting it is to find a pavlova-focused eatery here in Porto! That puts us to shame in both Australia and New Zealand. We all fight for who invented the dessert but rarely celebrate it on a mass market scale. The cardboard box goodness instead is reserved for special occasions, but doesn’t always feel so special. Here in Porto, Miss Pavlova is changing that for the cafe scene and making us all excited for the meringue-based dessert all over again.

Touroug Cafe, Errachidia, Morocco

Touroug Cafe, Errachidia, Morocco

We didn’t have a choice about dining at Touroug Cafe. Our guide lead us to the restaurant after our tour and promptly disappeared into sand. Which is annoying, because lunch isn’t included in the tour but we seemingly get no choice where we dine? I […]

Gudetama Cafe, Osaka, Japan

Gudetama Cafe, Osaka, Japan

I have such a soft spot for character cafes, and even more soft spots for Sanrio’s Gudetama. His apathy makes him (?) all the more adorable! Look, I know the food at the Gudetama cafe was never going to be great, but the theme was […]

Riad Andalib, Fes, Morocco

Riad Andalib, Fes, Morocco

My first meal in Fes was a bit of a cop out. I had just been dropped off to my riad and needed to grab something nearby for food. The thought of navigating the medina for a meal… is the last thing I felt like doing with my tired feet. The experience at hotel-restaurant Riad Andalib was a bit surreal, since I was the only diner and everything seemed a bit too fancy.

Frankie Hot Dogs, Baixa, Porto

Frankie Hot Dogs, Baixa, Porto

How bloody good is the food in Porto? Even the hotdog stand impresses. But that’s unfair to Frankie Hot Dogs, it’s so much more than that. In fact, it feels like what I would imagine a perfect hotdog restaurant should look like. Ultra friendly staff, […]

Naranj Restaurant, Marrakech, Morocco

Naranj Restaurant, Marrakech, Morocco

I had a terrific time at Naranj restaurant. As a solo diner with an early appetite I managed to find a table alright. It is the kind of venue where you need to book well in advance, especially if you want the desirable courtyard positions. […]

Grounded, Whitechapel, London

Grounded, Whitechapel, London

Regardless of where I live, I always find a cafe to call my local. Here in Whitechapel that is the Grounded Coffee Company cafe. A super popular joint, they offer decent coffees and a proper brunch menu. It’s halal, so expect substitute bacon but all the same enjoyable start to your morning.
