Eat Out: Bao Fitzrovia, London

Ever since Bao opened their first restaurant in Soho I’ve been dying to try this place out, but time and time again I was put off by the enormous queue snaking around the corner or across the road. Don’t get me wrong this was clearly a good sign but not so good after working all day and all…

Eat Out: Pret’s Christmas Lunch Sandwich is here

I don’t know about you but all I’ve had on my social media timeline the last week is people debating when we’re allowed to get into the Christmas spirit. Ooo’ing and arghing over this years John Lewis ad versus ‘my Christmas tree is up in the loft until the 1st December’ memes. But what ever…

Eat Out: Crosstown Doughnuts, Brick Lane London

Crosstown Doughnuts opened their second Doughnut and Coffee bar in London just over a month ago on Brick Lane. Situated in the middle of the two famous and well known London beigel shops and only a short walk from both Liverpool Street and Shoreditch High Street stations there’s no excuse not to pop in after…

Eat Out: Opening night at Smokestak, Shoreditch London

Ever since my first Smokestak at Hawker House back in May I have been eagerly awaiting their first restaurant opening. Finally last night that evening came and it was better than I could have ever hoped. Melt in your mouth beef, crispy pigtails and sweet pickled chillies to name just a few, this is without a doubt…

Eat In: Ana’s Thai Green Curry

I stole this recipe off the lovely Ana over 6 years ago when I left the sunny Isle of Mallorca. As there weren’t many home cooked meals or moments of homeliness it’s a dish, despite being Thai, that really reminds me of my time in Spain. Ana would cook it for me and we’d eat…

Berber & Q has been on my to do list for quite some time and whilst I still haven’t made it there I have now been to its sister restaurant Shawarma Bar at Exmouth Market. The team have brought these high quality cooked on a spit kebabs to us and with the restaurant situated in…

30th Birthday Celebrations and lots of Cake!

So the last couple of weeks have been crazy busy but amazing as I’ve turned 30 and celebrated hard! Hence why I’ve been a little quiet on the blogging front, apologies! But I’m back and what better way to kick it off than to show you all some of the amazing birthday cakes I’ve had,…

Eat In: Lemon and Blueberry Drizzle Cake

Inspired by Great British Bake Off’s first episode I decided to make a drizzle cake one lazy Sunday afternoon. Now everyone loves a lemon drizzle but I wanted to find a recipe with something that little bit extra. As usual I took to Pinterest and found this delicious looking Lemon and Blueberry Drizzle Cake from Good…

Eat Out: Lunch on the beach in the Valleys, Langland’s Brasserie, Swansea

No you haven’t read that title wrong and before you think this review is delayed and I enjoyed this lunch in the height of summer … I didn’t. A surprisingly gorgeous September weekend I found myself walking along Langland Bay beach and enjoying a delicious lunch in the seafront restaurant Langland’s Brasserie. Despite growing up…
