    49 Cafe- Eat Like A Londoner

    49 Cafe is my go-to place for lunch when working in London. It’s not too much to look at from the outside- but go inside! They serve big tubs of pasta and paella for £7.50. This place is popular with locals and the working crowd, so there is often a queue when visiting. Nevertheless it is worth the wait as the food is amazing and really filling. It is also pleasant to eat whilst sitting in one of the many parks around Bloomsbury. 49 Cafe, 49 Marchmont St, London WC1N 1AP

    Eating my way through London: El Pastor

    El Pastor is my kind of place. Mexican food with a buzzy vibe- what’s not to like? One thing to note is- El Pastor does not accept bookings. So be sure to bring a phone and scope out places in the area for a drink whilst you’re waiting. They are good about taking your number and texting you when a table becomes available, so there’s no having to hang about in the rain. Just be aware that wait times can be around two hours. What to eat? Tacos of course! I would definitely recommend getting a few types and mixing it up with the other people you’re dining with. The…

    Foodie Adventures in the Scottish Highlands

    I hope your 2022 is off to a good start so far? As well as wanting to be a food blogger, I’ve always fancied being a travel blogger. What could be better than travelling the world, writing about my experiences of eating great food and seeing interesting sights? Travel blogging is not quite an area I’ve cracked yet, but I still enjoy talking about the food I’ve eaten in the places I’ve visited. My trip to the Scottish Highlands last Autumn is perfect for that. Most of my food choices were centered around Inverness as it is the capital of the Highlands. Inverness is full of visitors who want to…

    Dining out in beautiful Bedfordshire

    Bedfordshire is a really under-rated place. In a 2018 YouGov poll, 42000 people named Bedfordshire as the least popular of the 42 countries. It seems to be a country that people pass through, rather than linger in. However, there is plenty to enjoy and experience in Bedfordshire, not least the food. Here is a round-up of some of the best meals I’ve enjoyed whilst eating out in mid- Bedfordshire over the last few months. The Chequers, Westoning This cute little thatched pub is about 10 minutes off junction 12 on the M1 and is worth a visit if you find yourself in the area. I really couldn’t fault this place…

    Eating outside again (finally)

    As the lockdown restrictions have eased, it’s been so good to be able to enjoy food and drink at a restaurant or cafe outside. I have been off work over the last week whilst transitioning between jobs, which has given me additional time to really make the most of it. Here is a round-up of some of the places I visited. The Paper Mill, Apsley It was lovely weather at the weekend so my boyfriend and I decided to celebrate by visiting a charming canal-side restaurant near where he lives. We both had beefburgers, but I could only get my hands on the brownie sundae by ordering it from the…
