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 […]

Regency Cafe, Westminster, London

Regency Cafe, Westminster, London

Regency Cafe was the closest eatery to my former flat here in Westminster, and boy, is it a legend. This greasy spoon (a quaint term the locals use here) takes you into a different era. And it’s easy to understand why films like Layer Cake […]

Plum + Split Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

Plum + Split Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

I visited Plum and Split Milk off the back of this Hot Dinners offer I had. 50% off the weekend brunch menu price was enticing and the food and venue looked upper class to boot. It ended up being a bit snobby in service but […]

Eska, Karlín, Prague

Eska, Karlín, Prague

It’s often very worthwhile making a trek across the city for a good meal. That was the case for my brunch over at Eska. The store is a grand two storeys, and there’s plenty of seating despite my concerns when I first walked in. It’s […]

Brunch & Cake, Barcelona

Brunch & Cake, Barcelona

Cake for breakfast? Things sure a little different here at Brunch & Cake in Barcelona. There’s a world of new possibilities after all, so why be bound by conventional brunches?I was on the hunt for a flashy brunch and this came up trumps on my Google-fu search. Some good reviews, some killer pics. There’s definitely wonder and excitement on the menu but the end chapter  isn’t quite as breath-taking.

Stika, Budapest

If you liked it, you should have Stika fork in it. Stika in District VII of Budapest is a very hip coffee and brunch joint that’s popular with the locals. So popular they even ran out of half the menu on the following day when […]

Egg Break, Notting Hill, London

Egg Break, Notting Hill, London

The humble egg has always been an integral part of my family’s cuisines. No matter what meal of the day or what occasion, it’s there in one form in another. A quaint little cafe that celebrates the egg in London is Egg Break, based in […]

Panera Bread, Garden District, Toronto

Panera Bread, Garden District, Toronto

I had fond memories of the Panera Bread chain. It was one of the rare eateries along my USA road trip where I thought “that was good and I don’t regret eating more”. It was also one of the few places open near Dundas Square early morning Good Friday. I was off to Niagara Falls on a tour and killed some morning time tucking into an Asiago bacon, egg and cheese bagel ($4.39). Curiously, the Asiago cheese bagel option has less calories than the sourdough. Not that I’m counting.
