Tulip Restaurant, Canterbury

Tulip Restaurant, Canterbury

Our once-upon-a time in Canterbury came to a close with the Turkish stylings of Tulip Restaurant. We spied it on our trek home and calculated we had plenty of time for a sit down dinner before the long bus ride home. It’s a rather impressive […]

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

The mother of all curries? A name that gets heralded around as one of the city’s top restaurants (let alone Indian restaurants) in Glasgow is Mother India. The UK does such a good job of producing such smashing curries, in part to its long history […]

Ichiban Noodle Bar, Glasgow

Ichiban Noodle Bar, Glasgow

Ichiban means number one in Japanese. And Ichiban Noodle Bar might just be number one for Japanese food in Glasgow! It was one of our dinner stops for a wild night in the city (in terms of stuffing our faces). Originally established in 1998 the […]

Chiang Mai Kitchen, Oxford

Chiang Mai Kitchen, Oxford

Our evening on our Oxford day trip concluded with a dinner at Chiang Mai Kitchen. We paced ourselves rather well over our time in the city. The meal arrived at the point with just enough to get back to to the station with ease. Chiang […]

Tim Hortons, Glasgow

Tim Hortons, Glasgow

I’m not Canadian, and I only spent a week in Toronto, but still, something about seeing Tim Hortons in Glasgow, Scotland brings a smile to my face. It’s the part of me that wants to be a Canadian, eh. I mean, the food’s not good […]

Cottonrake Bakery, West End, Glasgow

Cottonrake Bakery, West End, Glasgow

I had spent my morning at the Botanical Gardens and had a particularly unfriendly Uber experience. As such, I was in need of some more sunshiny times. Luckily I found that in my breakfast stop at the Cottonrake Bakery. Something about the people of Glasgow […]

KFC, City Centre, Glasgow

KFC, City Centre, Glasgow

What can I say? The heart wants what it wants. There’s probably way too many posts on KFCs but maybe I can rationalise it as helping me understand cross-cultural differences. KFC Glasgow on a Saturday night must be one of the most rocking places in […]
