Anyone who is a regular reader of my blog will know how much I've been looking forward to my second visit to Dabbous.

London Food Markets #2 - Real Food Festival

Second on my list of London food markets to visit was the Real Food Festival at Southbank.

Located just a 2 minute walk from Waterloo station, the Real Food Festival provides an amazing range of fresh produce and street food stalls. Not only that, but as part of the Southbank Centre, it is a very short walk to ever enjoyable liveliness of the Festival Riverside walk.

Flat Planet

Ask people what they're planning to do when they visit London, and shopping on Oxford Street will almost certainly feature on their list. And in my experience, hours spent traipsing up and down the endlessly long high street always necessitates a pit stop. What always amazes me though, is how so many people seem incapable of leaving Oxford Street in search of sustenance.

St John's College, Cambridge

After the excesses of the day before, there was only one place I wanted to be come Sunday morning and that was chillin' on the backs of St John's.

MA (Cantab)

Cambridge University has a traditional quirk whereby graduates are automatically awarded a Masters degree 6 years after matriculating. However, those of you who have slogged your way through your Masters and are incensed at the thought of us being given one for free, don't worry. No one actual recognises it as meaning anything more than ceremonial.

Ping Pong

I've mentioned many times before my love for Dim Sum and my restaurant of choice is definitely New World in China Town (which I blogged about here). 

However, it's not always possible to go to New World and when I want my Dim Sum fix I inevitably end up at Ping Pong

Little Venice Canalway Cavalcade

Little Venice is a section of canal in West London where the Grand Union and Regent's Canals meet, and home to a number of restaurants and pubs. On Bank Holiday Monday, however, Little Venice was home to far more than that.

Escape to the Country II - Beautiful Bluebells

For those who read my blog regularly, you will know that I'm a girl of relatively simple pleasures. Good food, great friends, and a pinterest full of interior decor in differing shades of white are all it really takes to keep me happy. Add to that list a beautiful day in the countryside and I really couldn't be happier.

My Evening Beauty Routine

I know 99.9% of this blog is about food, but I thought it'd be fun to drop in a little curve ball in the form of a beauty post.

London Food Markets #1 - Borough

I've decided to set myself a challenge. My challenge is to visit every one of the main food markets in London and then to report back to you on my findings in a blog post.

Eating My Way Through... April

Keeping a blog is really like keeping an extravagant diary and I thought it would fun to summarise my foodie highlights by creating a monthly feature, starting, of course, with April.

Kicking things off with Mamas the Word gammon ham roll with chili jam and rocket which I found at what must have been my discovery of the month - foodie paradise, Maltby Street Market.

Restaurant Review: Barnyard

I absolutely raved about Dabbous when I visited last August, but hugely long waiting lists and relatively expensive prices mean that I don't get to visit anywhere near as often as I would like.

Step forward Barnyard, Dabbous's little brother serving similar food (sometimes even the same!), for cheaper prices and no long waiting lists.
