Guide to Paris: Eating and Exploring

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!Paris Continue reading

Broadway Market, Hackney

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!

Review: The Frenchie, London

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.

Lunch at Greenwich Market (La Ficelle)

Over the weekend, a friend of mine came to visit, and we decided to pop over to Greenwich for a relaxing Sunday out, and to check out the food scene at Greenwich Market. After much deliberation, we decided to have lunch at La Ficelle, one of the market traders selling that day, and I’m happy to report that I had a deliciously simple, yet hearty meal!

Dinner at Maxwell Road Hawker Centre, Singapore

A trip to Singapore wouldn’t be complete without visiting one of their food hawker markets. I would gladly have eaten at one every day, but given the limited amount of time we were in Singapore, we decided to narrow it down to Maxwell Road Hawker Centre so that we could try out the famous Tian Tian chicken rice and fish bee hoon from Jin Hua.  Luckily for us, the food was worth the hype and it made for an overwhelming, crowded and exciting dining experience.

Review: Bookworm Café, Lamma Island

After a few incredibly hot hours wandering around Lamma Island, there were just two things that I wanted: air con and food. My friend and I chanced upon Bookworm Cafe on our way back to the pier and decided to have a quick pit-stop for tea. With its colourful vegetarian food and relaxing settings, Bookworm was a nice place to wind down and chill after a sunny day out, but portion sizes could have been more generous.photo 5 Continue reading

Albergue 1601 婆仔屋, Macau

Last month, my family and I went to Macau for a short weekend break. However, instead of  frequenting casinos and clubs,we planted ourselves onto very familiar territory- restaurants! Albergue 1601, a traditional Portuguese restaurant, was one of the places that we had the opportunity to visit, and I’m happy to report that I had a great meal here.
