KAHVE DUNYASI, MAYFAIR: I've had my fair share of "Aussie" i.e. Melbourne Cafes, but this Turkish cafe was definitely a one of a kind experience.

Roman Pizza

PIZZA UNION, KING'S CROSS: A popular, convenient pizza place located right next to the bustling crowds of King's Cross, Pizza Union was a fun, cheap way to enjoy Roman pizza.

This … Continue reading Roman Pizza

Seeking out Spain

BARRAFINA, SOHO: My first official Michelin starred restaurant! Woohoo - this is one of the most hyped places in London, well known for its amazingly authentic Spanish tapas and the line up that starts before it opens.

THE RITZ HOTEL, PICCADILLY: Located in perhaps one of the most affluent areas in London, our evening here was definitely one to remember. This was the ultimate treat-yo-self day for me!
