St. John Bakery

St. John Bakery

St. John Bakery St. John Restaurant is an award winning restaurant in London. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to stop in for a meal (a must-do for next time), but we did have a chance to visit its standalone bakery, which for a few short hours on Saturday mornings (9am to 2pm) is open to […]

Hoxton Hotel Shoreditch

Hoxton Hotel Shoreditch

Hoxton Hotel Shoreditch I have an obsession with hotels and airplane food. I do a lot of research before our trips and take a lot of photos of everything. I haven’t really had time to share all of those photos, but I’m going to attempt sharing them more regularly. During our visit to London in […]

Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason

Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason

Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason One of the British traditions I was most looking forward to exploring during my trip to London was Afternoon Tea. This can range anywhere from a very casual cup of tea with a pastry to a very formal, full-service (and pricey) experience. We opted to experience the full grand […]

Bleecker St.

Bleecker St.

Everything from the simple name, to the […]

Duck & Waffle

Duck & Waffle As you’re reading this, I’m wrapping on a very quick, whirlwind trip to London and Paris. It may have been short, but I managed to spend nearly every second of it eating (as well as hitting the main attractions in London since this was my first visit). My very first official meal […]

Borough Market

Borough Market

Borough Market Borough Market is one of the oldest and largest food markets in London. During our trip to London, we visited the market and I had such a wonderful time. The sights, from the breads to fresh squeezed juices, to cured meats, were just so colorful and mouthwatering. We enjoyed our visit and only […]

Global Chowzter Awards 2014

Global Chowzter Awards 2014

Global Chowzter Awards 2014 My main reason for visiting London last week was to attend Chowzter’s Tastiest Fast Feasts on Earth Awards. As you may recall, I’ve been working with Chowzter since the end of last year and previously attended their North American Awards. This was a much bigger scale, trying to find the tastiest […]
