BRUNETTI, MELBOURNE CBD: So it hasn't been long since I've come back from Europe and honestly the Melbourne food scene captures quintessential Europe pretty well - especially the beautiful cakes and pastries from Brunetti. The highly successful Italian bakery chain has now opened a brand new store on Flinders Lane, to rival the successes of its … Continue reading Sponsor me Brunetti

Two and a Half Beans

TWO AND A HALF BEANS, ESSENDON: A very relax-styled cafe on the busy Mount Alexander Road, Two and a Half Beans is a very welcoming, neighbourhood brunch area great for a quick catch up over coffee or drinks in the bustling surburbia.

My Favourite Xiao Long!

SHANGHAI DRAGON DUMPLING HOUSE, RUSSELL ST: Incredibly delicious and authentic Shanghai food that is relatively cheap, casual and cozy. Underrated as you won't find huge lines like some of those in Chinatown but I can definitely vouch for the genuine flavours in their dishes and the speediness of service.

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. For those uncertain, Roman pizza features an extremely thin, widely stretched base due to the addition of olive oil, which Napolean pizza traditionally doesn't use. 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. With several branches all over Central London, Barrafina fell, unfortunately, just short of my expectations, which were probably exceedingly … Continue reading Seeking out Spain

Plenty at Padella

PADELLA, BOROUGH MARKET: OMG! This pasta place is heaven... cheap, speedy and most importantly, some of the best pasta I've ever had, Padella is really quite an incredible restaurant. Always expect a line before the restaurant even opens so make sure to get there early - but any wait is well worth it. Given that the … Continue reading Plenty at Padella

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! You can't go to London without having a high tea, and where else can you go high other than the one of the most iconic … Continue reading Ultimate Luxury at the Ritz

A Cut of Italian at La Tagliata

LA TAGLIATA, FITZROVIA: The newly opened (second) store nestled in the leafy, relaxed area of Fitzrovia, La Tagliata is an Italian restaurant that certainly didn't disappoint! We left with a hearty, content filling in our stomachs, a beautiful mellow array of flavours to remember and fondly reminiscing our Italian summer holiday of 2017. With lovely house … Continue reading A Cut of Italian at La Tagliata
