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 […]
Brunch is such an impressive time of day in eating life these days. That makes it hard to decide what to have. Sweet, savoury, wet, dry, cold, hot? Fear not, the brunch platter at chain Le Pain Quotidien give you everything and more.
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 the eating for the most part is crowd pleasing.
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 […]
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 […]
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 I visited! The cafe’s setting is familiar with industrial chic screaming from the interior. Lots of natural light and a rather serene atmosphere as the crowds hadn’t settled yet. What can I say? I enjoy an early morning start to make the most of my holiday days.
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 […]
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 […]
The Abokado chain of cafes originally started when the owners visited down under and experienced the wealth of cheap, exciting sushi, juice and noodle bars and thought it was needed in London too. It’s certainly true there is still some shortage of the diversity of cuisine choices that I’m used to back home (and other home). I popped into the Westminster branch (or should that be one of the Westminster branches) to catch a late night 20% closing sale.
I grabbed an inari noodle salad and an egg salad. It came under £5 and was fairly alright for the price. The boiled egg salad had a nice, creamy dressing and was otherwise basic with some spinach leaves. The inari was tasty but overly sweet and the vermicelli it was on was weird, chewy. Not the texture I was hoping for. The choose-your-own dressing and seperate shallot container is neat and it’s a meal you can feel good about.
