A foodies guide to eating parrilla (that’s steak to you and I)

🇦🇷 Buenos Aires. What an amazing city – well known for tango, futbol and well, you definitely can’t leave without trying parrilla. Known for its carne, Argentina is steak central.  Now this is the part where I lose all credibility and tell you – when it comes to steak I have (or had) no idea…

A foodies guide to… Brazil!

Brazil, Brazil. Famous for its football, amazing beaches and friendly people, however not always so favourably remembered for its food. The first time I came to Brazil I really struggled with the ‘beige’ food on offer – lots of heavy meats and pastries, carbs on carbs on carbs! But this time my experience has been…

Waffle On at Maltby Street Market, Southwark

Maltby Street Market is without a doubt one of London’s best kept food secrets. Opening in 2010, the market is just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Southbank and is a tasty mixture of diverse cuisines from all over the globe.   The place has a certain rustic charm about it,…

A foodies guide to Eataly

Italy, or should we call it Eataly?!  Famed for its food which is arguably some of the best in the world (and frankly, we agree). Pizza, pasta, anti pasti, cured meats, mozzarella, prosecco… We recently enjoyed a European city break to Rome, the city of Angels which has art, culture and gelateria around every corner….

Festive Feels at M Restaurant, Victoria

Instead of presents this year, my boyfriend and I decided we would go out for a lovely Christmas meal instead. We wanted to eat somewhere that we wouldn’t choose usually, and so we went through the entire ‘star deals’ section on the Bookatable app (which we highly recommend btw).  After a few days messaging backwards…

Farm Girl, Notting Hill

We’ve been to a fair few brunches in this neck of the woods but we were really looking forward to Farm Girl. On Portobello Road in the centre of the beautiful, quintessential Notting Hill, this little cafe is entered through the courtyard. The no booking policy and rumours of queues out the door and round…

12 hours in Dublin: a foodies guide

We’ve always heard Dublin is an expensive city, so it wasn’t a surprise to find that it’s pretty much the same price as, if not more expenny than London. However, there are some great deals to be had and you can eat smartly for a fraction of the price of some of the more tourist…

Cheese Appreciation Society at 90 Degree Melt, Mile End

We were so excited to stumble across, by chance, a new restaurant to East London #winning. 90 Degree Melt has just opened, less than a week ago, on Mile End Road. Geared towards tapas-style grilled cheese sandwiches and American comfort food, this place is cool, a nice place to hang out and always importantly – they really love cheese.  …

Clean eating at Farmacy, Notting Hill

Weekend brunch is one of our favourite London activities. We get a bit bored of poached eggs on toast all the time, so branching out is always a pleasure. Farmacy, based in London’s Notting Hill can be seen as the definition of ‘branching out’. On trend, Farmacy is one of now many London restaurants specialising in vegetarian,…

A foodies guide to a winter mini-break in Hamburg

Based in St. Georg, Hamburg Falafel L’Amira is a simple, canteen-like restaurant which, with it’s exterior hidden under scaffolding, we would have definitely walked past if we did not know it was there. But, underneath the scaffolding it is an authentic restaurant that does delicious food full of hearty flavours and aromatic spices. We’ve never had…

The market…
