I went to Paris in February for three days and had an amazing time. Although it wasn’t my first time in the City of Love, there’s just something so beautifully magical about this city- I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it’s definitely a place worth visiting whether you’re a glutton, a history buff, or a shopaholic, or all of the above! I hope this post inspires you if you’re planning a trip to this amazing city. Enjoy! Continue reading
The weather in London has been quite pitiful recently, but under no circumstances should that deter gluttons from venturing out of their warm homes in search of food. Last weekend, I decided to go to Broadway Market- a place that has been on my hypothetical ‘bucket list’ for quite some time, and my experience there can be summed up in one sentence: I will definitely be back again soon!
The other day, I was perusing Buzzfeed (as you do) and came across The Slow Richies in this article. Upon realising that they were currently in residence at The Jeremy Bentham, a pub located smack bang in the middle of my University campus, I knew I had to try them out ASAP before they left…and so I did! 🙂 Continue reading
What are some of your favourite comfort foods? One of mine has got to be congee, a type of rice porridge that is eaten in many Asian countries as a staple meal. I was back home for the holidays and so I made my way to Mui Kee, a famous eatery in Hong Kong famous for its congees- and rightly so! Continue reading
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m pretty obsessed with eating at food markets and food stalls, and rarely am I left disappointed or with an empty stomach. Whilst the other stalls have been delicious, I think that I’ve finally found my top pick – The Frenchie, a food stall that specialises in the most drool-inducing duck confit burgers ever.
UPDATE (August 2015): Looks like Seoul Bakery is reopening in the Bloomsbury area (14 Great Russell Street). Yay!
UPDATE (Jan 2015): Sadly, Seoul Bakery, along with the rest of the Korean restaurants on TCR have closed- https://londonist.com/2015/01/centre-points-koreatown-wiped-out-by-crossrail.php
If you’re looking for Korean food in London that’s as cheap as chips, look no further!
Seoul Bakery is one of my favourite local haunts- it’s affordable, central, and super tasty. Unfortunately, it’s also incredibly popular, and more often than not you’ll see a long line of people (mostly Asian students) vying to have a meal in this tiny shoebox of a restaurant, which only has 12 seats. The restaurant has a very strict first come, first serve policy- so try to get there early.
I recently went on a two day getaway to Brighton during my “reading” week (in my defence, I did work beforehand!) and tried out a number of restaurants in this vibrant seaside city. One such place was Talk of Tea, an adorable little hideaway specialising in loose leaf teas and afternoon teas- I’d highly recommend a visit if you’re in the area! Continue reading
