Pizza East, Shoreditch, London

Pizza East, Shoreditch, London

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 […]

Cream’s Cafe, Canterbury, Kent

Cream’s Cafe, Canterbury, Kent

Bubblewrap/ bubble pop waffles are nothing new. They’ve been around since the 1950’s in Hong Kong markets feeding one and all in need of a sweet feast. But this year they’ve exploded onto London as the next Instagram-craze due to one particular store. I have […]

Breddos Tacos, Clerkenwell, London

Breddos Tacos, Clerkenwell, London

Early on in my UK residency, It took an ex-street stall serving modern, fusion-brunch tacos to convince me that London has some hidden dining gems. And convince me Breddos Tacos sure did. My temporary flatmates and I headed around to Clerkenwell to check out this buzzy, on-trend spot. Dinner time it gets manic at Breddos (expect queues) but we had a relaxed morning pace that we could indulge in. And the tacos that partook in this experience – so very fantastic.

Odette Tea Room, Śródmieście Północne, Warsaw

Odette Tea Room, Śródmieście Północne, Warsaw

I was happy to see so many fantastic desserts in my time in Warsaw. I wouldn’t have picked it as such a foodie hotspot. Odette Tea Room is the second branch of the Odette chain of restaurants (the other one is called Odette Confectionary). There’s […]

Nadege, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

Nadege, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

I’m a huge fan of the Trinity Bellwoods area, and if I was looking to reside in Toronto, I’d give that a good go. I had walked past Nadege Patisserie quite a few times over my week in Canada, there was one in a mall too. […]

Taco Bell, Yonge & Elington, Toronto

Taco Bell, Yonge & Elington, Toronto

I do feel that we’re missing a beast, in the decent fast food chain that is Taco Bell. Across NZ, Australia and the UK it’s not in sight at all. So I had a little fix whilst I was in North America-land. Here, the Taco Bells are run alongside the KFCs for a fun, fusion dining experience. If you want. We stuck to just the Taco Bell menu for purity reasons. The “meal deal” is about $6 and you get two “things” along with a dessert side, drink, and corn chips. The latter whilst basic, come with a cup of amazing nacho cheese dip. This is so wow. I could eat a vat of this, it’s reminiscent of plastic cheese in liquid form but good.

The fried caramel apple empanada is gooey gold and delicious. It caused an argument on the table as we were both fighting over it it. And the drinks here are whack (probably just a America-thing). As well as ice tea options, you can get flavour twists (think: cherry, lime, vanilla) added into the soda. It makes for a mega mixing chemistry experience. At dinnertime. If anything, the only thing I didn’t rate at Taco Bell was the tacos, the filling was a bit weird and tasted like meat, but not meat. Onto dinner number two.

Glory Hole Doughnuts, Parkdale, Toronto

Glory Hole Doughnuts, Parkdale, Toronto

The store with the enviable name, Glory Hole Doughnuts bring a hole lot of cheer to those who give it a try. I couldn’t miss out on a sunny Canadian morning, so I did a early stroll with a pickup stop at Glory Hole Doughnuts. […]

BeaverTails, Harbourfront, Toronto

BeaverTails pastries have been a big part of Canada’s food history. The product first debuted in 1978 and more recently and locally, have opened their first permanent store in Toronto on the harbour front, replacing the seasonal kiosk. A BeaverTail is a wheat dough that’s stretched, […]

Noodle Stop, Covent Garden, London

Noodle Stop, Covent Garden, London

Easy on the wallet, and thankfully, also easy on the stomach. A mere £5.50 or £6 gets you one or two choices on rice or noodle. Oddly, all the meat options are chicken which makes picking that little bit more uninspired. I had the caramel chicken, that was a new option for me. And that was on the noodles. The chicken has a decent level of crispiness to it, and the caramel sauce is alright but not interesting or memorable. A twist to the honey or lemon varieties back home would have been welcome. I did enjoy the noodles, they’re the rubber band-type variety (but in a good way). Noodle Stop is a nice place to pause and sit down in the busy Covent Garden area and indulge in some tourist people watching.
