Couscous Darna

After my very filling lunch with Kaeshelle, we went back for some more revision and went for dinner. Before meeting, I had an idea that wherever we’d be eating for dinner, it would be with my tastecard as it’s close to expiring. I found Couscous Darna the night before and booked it with my tastecard…

Jamie’s Italian Gatwick Airport

I went to Tenerife with my boyfriend and his family and so before our flights we decided to have lunch together. We booked and I’m grateful that we did since it was so busy at the airport. I couldn’t tell if it was because of the Easter holidays or if it was because of lunch time….

First Impressions: Natto

What is it? Fermented Soy Beans. Usually eaten by the Japanese at breakfast over some steaming hot white rice. Some mix the white rice with raw egg too. It’s very high in protein. I bought it from the Japan Centre on offer from £2.55 to £1.76. £1.76 for four boxes of natto seemed a good…

Raison D’être

Ma raison d’être was definitely not Kaeshelle’s raison d’être.

Busaba Eathai

I came back to London to try this place out because I wanted to meet my penpal one last time before she jetted off to spend the rest of the  year in Australia. She’s been my penpal since we were around 10 years old and I only met her this year when she came over…

Brasserie Zédel Part II

So like I said in my earlier post, I’d write about my second time at this beautiful gem of a restaurant. It was my mum’s birthday and I was due to go back to university a little bit earlier to do some revision. Being at university has made me sort of conditioned to think that…

Brasserie Zédel Part I

In this blog post I’ll recall back to my anniversary on October. Look out for part II for when I came back for another meal at the beginning of January for my mum’s birthday. So a few months back, my anniversary with my boyfriend was fast approaching and he decided to let me pick where…

HURWUNDEKI

Admittedly, I’ve driven and walked past this restaurant many times without really noticing this place. After discovering my best friend and I both liked their page on Facebook, we decided to give this place a try. It wasn’t too far from Shoreditch and Bethnal Green Station so it wasn’t really hard to get to. I…

Marks & Spencer Cafe

Mother and I popped into M&S at the end of Oxford Street, near Hyde Park to buy some gifts for relatives and friends over in America before we went over there. After walking around for some time and getting hungrier and hungrier, we headed upstairs to Floor 3 to the cafe. It’s like a school…

Hi, High Tea of Highgate

First impressions: What a pretty, cute, colourful and retro looking cafe this was. Mismatched teacups and saucers. Colourful teapots. Rich and scrumptious looking cakes on display. Quirky crockery everywhere. Cool furniture. Bright space. The girl who served us was really pretty too, I have no idea what her name was but if you’re ever reading…

Le Pain Quotidien, 86 Highgate High Street, London N6 5HX

04.07.15 Perched on the pretty Highgate Hill Highstreet amongst all the cute little dainty cafes and stores, my friend and I walked in. We were seen to almost immediately, it was a hot and sunny day so when given the choice between sitting inside or outside, I jumped at the chance of some alfresco dining….
