Trying Cannoli In Rome

Sampling my first cannoli in Rome was a messy experience. Ok, so technically I ate cannolo because I only ate one. But before we get to that, let’s rewind a little. I remember reading a post by Adventurous Kate a few years ago. I couldn’t tell you what the post was about, only that she […]

Eating At Bonci Pizzarium

Bonci Pizzarium was a place I discovered thanks to the taste buds of one of my favourite foodies: Nikki. Nikki’s blog and taste buds have guided me in many of my city adventures, and Italy was no different. The minute I announced that S and I were heading to Rome, notifications popped up with recommendations […]

Come il Latte – Rome’s Best Gelato?

Come il Latte was a place I discovered by accident. And “by accident” I mean it was a place I purposely sniffed out after sensing the sweet, sweet smell of freshly made waffle cones. You see, after arriving in Italy there was only one thing I wanted to do: eat. S and I had purposely […]

Giggling Squid – Chichester*

Giggling Squid has recently set up a restaurant in Chichester and as somebody who is completely and utterly obsessed with Thai food, you can bet that I was first in line when they opened their doors. Almost literally, because on the 15th of June I was invited to the opening night of their Chichester branch. […]

Sant Yago, Southsea

As I sit here writing this, I’m sat in Sant Yago, one of my favourite restaurants in Southsea. We (S and I) came here last month for drinks with friends and decided that we should probably come back for food and so here we are. It’s St Patricks Day and the only table they had […]

Carbs, Cheese And A Taste Of Tuscany

Cake. I need to talk to you about cake. Specifically this cake. Otherwise known as Millefoglie Crema Chantilly e Frutti di Bosco. But before I get to that cake, I need to go back to the beginning. Because yano, that’s where stories tend to start. This particular story started on an overcast Thursday morning. As […]

Un, Deux, Trois

  After wandering along the top of Fourviere we clambered into the cable car and rode down the hill and into the streets of Lyon.     Gorgeous architecture towered over us as we wandered the streets in search of food     Bars, gelato shops, restaurants and the token “Irish” bar (that every location […]

The Burger Shop Co

Finding new places to eat is one of my favourite things to do,  so when I heard that The Burger Shop Co, the new burger shop in Arundel, had opened I knew it was time I stopped by for a visit. The Burger Shop Co’s mission is simple: To serve proper burgers, beers and cocktails. […]

Taco Bell Southampton

Do you ever go to a launch event and find a prop which perfectly describes you at every social event, ever? No. Me neither. *whistles* The thing is, food is great. I mean, I’m sure as grown up humans who survived the first stages of infancy and went on to feed yourselves, that you are well […]

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkins. A fruit (yes for realz) which has grown increasingly popular with every spiced latte, pie and cake that each season brings. But no matter what you do with them whether you carve, roast or puree – one thing’s for certain; soup is a timeless dish, and now that the sun sets around 4pm (gulp) and […]

Where To Eat In Pattaya

As S and I clambered out of the car with sleepy legs, “where to eat in Pattaya” was the first question which crossed our minds.     We had just arrived at our hotel after a swift two hour drive from Bangkok, and as always… We were hungry.     The problem with hunger is that […]

Pina Coladapops

Pina Coladapops were the magical equation of a hot day and long forgotten cupboard ingredients. If you’ve been on the internet over the past few days I’m pretty sure you would have seen *somebody* mentioning how great the weather is, and whilst that may not seem newsworthy to most of the world, genuine perfect days […]

Ilios Eindhoven

Dining in Ilios Eindhoven was something that came about by following my trusty ol’ senses.     After all, dining in a new city can be difficult. Especially one which you haven’t been to before!   Ilios is located in the Dommelstraat region of Eindhoven and S and I discovered it as we were wandering […]

Nicolino’s

If you’re looking for a place to eat with character and charm, then boy have I found the place for you. You see on a typically rainy English day S and I found ourselves sat in the car with hangrrr looming but no idea where to head for lunch. You see our lunch-list repertoire has […]

The Bao-Factor

I love London. I love the busy streets, the eclectic shops and the various flavours that entwine and captivate your senses as you wander the streets. But I find that after a few days in The Big Smoke I get sensory overload , so instead I tend to plan day trips, and those day trips usually have […]

Ele and Ela, Carvoeiro

Nestled in the centre of Carvoeiro, is Ele and Ela, a bistro-style eatery serving up an array of Mediterranean dishes on a small but eclectic menu in an inviting and unpretentious setting. Created by chef and host Harald, the cosy restaurant has built up quite the loyal following, and so bookings are very much advised! […]

Gelados And Companhia

This is the face of a girl who is hopelessly in love with Gelados and Companhia’s waffles and gelato.     This is the face of the girl who is sad that said waffles and gelato are all gone.     If you have ever tasted Gelados and Companhia’s gelato you’d understand why running out […]

Artie’s Kitchen

It feels like as soon as a new place opens in Chichester, it closes again. (Such is the life when you live in a small city with silly rent prices!) So when an independent pops up, I feel like it’s my duty to go and check it out before it disappears. So on Saturday morning […]

7 Bone Burger Co

I spend most of my days dreaming about food. If I’m not eating it, I’m cooking it, and if I’m not cooking it I’m pinning recipes on Pinterest ready to cook. But every so often the food that I find myself dreaming about most, is burgers. If you’ve been stopping by this blog of mine for a while I’m […]

Chicken Noodle Soup

Every relationship has its secrets, and mine is no different. But my secret is not the deviant kind, but more of the I’m-quite-happy-leaving-S-to-think-that-I’m-some-sort-of-domestic-goddess-even-though-the-dish-I’m-about-to-show-you-takes-less-than-ten-minutes-to-make kind. So today I’m letting you in on my (now) not-so-secret dish. Thai-inspired chicken noodle soup. This dish came to be whilst I was doing a food shop and realised that although I […]

6oz Burgers Southsea

6oz Burgers in Southsea was a place that I stumbled upon one hungry afternoon with S. You see, big cities are filled with amazing food stops. High-end restaurants, food trucks and pop up stalls – there’s something for every taste preference and every budget. But when you live in a small coastal town in the […]
