London Restaurant Reviews : Cheese Afternoon Tea, Georgian House London

I am not the biggest fan of Afternoon Tea. Don’t get me wrong: I love the sophisticated  tiered setup of finely cut sandwiches, warm scones and delectable desserts washed down with copious amounts of fragrant leafy teas (or in my case, bottomless fizz). But being someone who naturally resonates with savoury rather than sweet, I…

London Restaurant Reviews : Rosso Wine and Food Experience

We have all heard of Bottomless Brunch before. But what if I told you of a place where alongside free flowing fizz, there is bottomless food on offer as well? As I discovered recently, the Bottomless Brunch menu at Rosso Wine and Food Experience does exactly that. Created by a couple of like-minded friends from Milan,…

Best Places to Eat and Drink in Venice

For food lovers, finding a more-than-decent spot to eat in Venice is a minefield. Being a popular travel destination, there are plenty of overpriced tourist traps that will want your Euros and leave you shortchanged. Luckily for us, during a recent visit to the city, our AirBnb host turned out to be an ex-restaurant manager…

London Restaurant Reviews : Firebrand Pizza

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below restaurant and our meal was complimentary but all opinions and photos are mine.  Firebrand is a relaxed and informal pizza place in Marylebone, quite close to the train station.

Best Places to Eat in Porto

Ever since our trip to Lisbon last year, Porto had crept up quite high on my list of places to visit next. This relatively under-the-radar city in Portugal has now risen to the forefront of everyone’s travel goals. This year, as an extended birthday celebration and thanks to some awesome January deals by easyJet, we…

London Restaurant Reviews : Tamashii

Tamashii is a relatively new restaurant near Kings Cross, offering Pan-Asian cuisine. The sprawling space occupies what used to be a buffet restaurant. The interiors are mostly low-lit, punctuated by stylish neon signage adding pops of colour and vintage party vibes. We kicked things off with their relatively small but exciting sounding Eastern Inspired Cocktails…
