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 […]

Cereal Killer Cafe, Brick Lane, London

Cereal Killer Cafe, Brick Lane, London

Cereal-isly? You guys have a cereal-themed cafe? I went along, and I’m glad I did, but it certainly wasn’t killer. The Cereal Killer Cafe is a super happening spot, no doubt driven by a glow of nostalgia and a ounce of curiosity. Service was a […]

MEATLiquor N1, Islington, London

MEATLiquor N1, Islington, London

When you head into MEATLiquor, two things are bound to happen. You’ll have a food coma and you’ll have a great time doing so. My bro and I were already done with our *first* dinner and then walked over to Islington for our next fill. Then we stumbled upon MEATLiquor N1.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Covent Garden, London

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Covent Garden, London

It’s time to get a little starry-eyed. Michelin starry-eyed. I’ve done over half a year in London now, and it’s a good point to start checking off some Michelin-starred establishments. First on the list was L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Covent Garden. The location was […]

Gelupo, Soho, London

Gelupo, Soho, London

I have a new favourite gelato place in London. And I’m not the only fan. One of the busiest gelaterias in central London is Gelupo. Gelupo has only one store, and that’s in Soho. That is already a good sign. So why do I love […]

La Diperie, The Danforth, Toronto

La Diperie, The Danforth, Toronto

Any special occasion commands a dessert finish. And my final dinner with my friend (at least for this trip) was no different. I commanded him into La Diperie, a funky little outlet that offers soft serve-based dessert mixes. Originally starting out in Montreal, there’s been a little bit of movement with this store being the first in Toronto. It’s a minimalistic fit out, with a maximised menu offering. From six base soft serve options, you also pick a dip and any number of toppings. Coconut, oreo, pretzel, sprinkles, and many, many more, you’re completely spoiled for choice.

The price of the waffle/ cone/ sundae does add up quickly, so we went a bit more basic in selecting one of the pre-arranged combinations. Chili chocolate dip and corn chips sums it up. The chili chocolate was too much for the both of us, there was quite a bit of heat in that dip. Soft serve was a bit too melty, and could have done with the size up. The corn chips eh, was weird and quirky enough. The soft serve itself is decent but ultimately maybe not the right choice/ thought it was overpriced for what you get.

Nugateau, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

Nugateau, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

Nugateau specialises in a single type of pastry, and that’s the humble éclair. But here, it’s in a pimped out form. There’s many themed around holidays and some that are just straight up dessert-decadence flavours. This was a visit at the counter within the bright Sak’s Food Hall. […]

Koko Black, Maribyrnong, Melbourne

Koko Black, Maribyrnong, Melbourne

This was my first visit to the Koko Black chain of chocolate shops. My friends raved about their products and being of a sweet tooth, it was imperative that I had checked it out too. I veered away from the drinks and chocolates and ordered one […]

Milse, Britomart, Auckland

Milse, Britomart, Auckland

Perhaps one of the very few places that will ever have a five from me. I’ve never had anything less than spectacular at this little dessert cafe that is known as Milse. I would admit it just felt magical the first time. I hadn’t had any dessert experience quite like this before in New Zealand. So shiny, so fancy, so alien.
