July Foodie Highlights

1 comment
I was here, there and everywhere in July, these were my best foodie bits:

Brixton Beach
The perfect spot to chill on the sunniest of Sundays. Frozen Margarita's and mac & cheese toasties from Mac to the Future. It's a yes from me.

Coffee from Tap Coffee
This gem is on Tottenham Court Road and serves up a cracking cup of coffee.

The School House
Those pulled pork nachos tho...

La Parilla, Swansea
This is my favourite place to go back home, you choose your meat or fish from the counter and it's cooked to perfection. I went with the beef fillet medallions and too much prosecco. The best.

Milk, Balham
Brunchies, get this one on your list ASAP. It's naughty and hands down the best iced coffee I've ever had. TIP: head there early to avoid queuing for ages.

I fell a little in love with the Spanish way of doing things, read all about my Barcelona trip here.

From Barcelona, I flew to Palma and had the most amazing time that consisted mostly of lying by the pool, eating all of the bread things and sipping white sangria.

Art of Patron event
A gathering of local artists and Patron cocktails in the coolest space in Hackney. I was amazed at how inventive the cocktails were, that was an art in itself.

Canna Deli, Cardiff
After one too many on Mill Lane, we were in need of something hearty and delicious, Canna Deli answered all of my dreams. The coffee was amazing and the melty cheese cured me.


Exploring Barcelona

Leave a Comment
Barcelona has been on my list for soo long. Where the city meets the beach is my absolute favourite. 

If you're after burgers head to Bacoa and add all the extra toppings. The perfect thing after a day at the beach. Burgers, beers and babes.

Get a giant slice of pizza and explore Sagrada Familia.

Hop along the beach bars and get drunk off Estrella in the sunshine.

Head to Flax and Kale x H&M. The big H&M on Passeig de Gracia is the fanciest one you will ever see and right at the top is the cafe where Instagram dreams are made. 

Don't forget to look up. The architecture of this city is incredible and you will see touches of Gaudi's work wherever you go.

Explore St. Josep La Boqueria, the food market, and drink all of the coloured juices. 

Eat gelato all day, every day. The Nutella flavour one from Must Gelato was the best of them all. 

Go to Ocana, the coolest bar just off La Rambla. The best spot where you can sip wine, people watch and take selfies in the toilets.

Sip on vegan juices at Flax & Kale in the Gothic Quarter. After all the bread, gelato and tapas, a healthy lunch is the cure. I had the coconut fungi toast and it was divine. 

Have lots of beach days. We spent the majority of our time lying on the beach with beers and we couldn't have been happier. 

Party at the Port. There are plenty of clubs including Pacha and Opium right on the beach and you will have the best time. 

This is what the spirit measures in Spain does to your eyesight...

Walk everywhere. There is so much to see and walking around is the best way to see things you would normally miss.

Get lost down the little streets in the Gothic Quarter and stumble across the cutest tapas places for dinner and sangria. 

Barcelona is such an amazing city and we only explored a fraction of it. If it's on your list of places to visit, move it to the top because it's so, so worth it. 


June Foodie Highlights

Leave a Comment
I spent the majority of June drinking all manner of fizzy things and iced coffee's, and I'm not sorry.

These were the best bits:

Estrella's The Little Things Premier
What could be better than an ice cold beer, Spanish nibbles and the best views over Shoreditch?Nothing, that's what.

Chestertons Polo
No better way to spend World Gin Day than with a jug of lemon gin and men in tight trousers riding horses.

Breakfast at Grind 
One of London’s finest brunch spots. The one in London Bridge is particularly good.

Honest burger
I always try to pick local foodie places over chains, especially when it comes to burgers, BUT Honest Burger is honestly the best of them. 

Barbour and Parlour
If you're looking for a spot to drink coffee and do some work in Shoreditch, this is the boy. 

Moët Ice Pop up At The Hampshire Lounge Bar 
Moët served on ice in the heart of Leicester Square. Sums up a pretty perfect sunny evening for me.

The finest Aussie brunch can be had at Brickwood in Clapham. TIP: order a side of hash nuggets with whatever breakfast you go for.

Don't mind if I Baileys
Iced coffee with a Baileys twist. It's a yes from me. Read about them here.

Flat iron 
We waved goodbye to our blonde bombshell at work and what better way to do so than with steak and prosecco?  Still my fave place for dinner in London.

Linas stores 
The cutest and most delicious deli in Soho. Get your coffee, fresh pasta, meatball sandwiches and dream of holidaying in Italy.   

I'm off to Barcelona this month to sniff out the best tapas, plzzz send your recommendations! 


Don't Mind If I Baileys @ Grind

Leave a Comment
Grind is the place where brunch dreams are made. Throw in some totally dreamy interiors, a cracking brunch menu and you've got yourself an instagrammers paradise.

Dotted in the key locations in London, you're bound to find one somewhere near you. 

I headed to London Bridge a couple of weeks ago and went for the baked eggs, washed down with an iced coffee, but I heard they had a little secret. And it might just be the best secret ever. 

They have teamed up with baking queen, Candice Brown, to give you a Baileys Mint Brownie Iced Latte. No need to think of Baileys as a Christmas tipple anymore, its nailed iced coffees and become a firm summer favourite. 

These beauties are available for a limited time and all you have to do is whisper "Don't mind if I Baileys" to the barista at Grind and they will whip one right up for you. A special secret that's not on the menu. 

Trust me, you will like it a latte. 


May Foodie Highlights

Leave a Comment
With May brought many totally fabaaaalus foodie moments.

These were my best bits:

Model Market, Lewisham
Sometimes you just can't beat steak and chips. Up In My Grill wins at bringing it to Model Market in Lewisham. TIP: Opt for the spicy sauce, it's bloody lovely.

Lola's Cupcakes
I ate ALOT of cake in May. The highlight? A Lola's peanut butter and jam one.

Leicester Square Kitchen, Leicester Square
Think Mexican and Peruvian small plates with all the guac and the best cocktails.

Tanner & Co, Bermondsey
Where all brunch dreams come true. Especially ones that include potato hash with bacon.

Steak & Lobster, Warren Street
I will say one thing: Unlimited fries and salad.

Pedler. Peckham
Because there is no better place for a boozy brunch. Make mine a gin and juice.

Pergola, Paddington
If you thought Pergola on the roof was cool, you will lose your shit over this one in Paddington.

Farm Girl, Notting Hill
Possibly one of the most instagramable brunch spots in London? I can see why.

Frank's Cafe, Peckham
After a long wait, he's finally back. Enjoy a jug of Pimm's and the best view ever.

Courtyard at Kings Cross
There is nowhere I would rather be on a bank holiday weekend than at a Welsh beer festival, the best bit? Grazing Shed were there, bloody hell I've missed them!

Duck & Waffle
Any where that let's you sip on gin and eat brunch at 2am looking over London is a winner in my eyes.

My June is looking like a very busy one with lots of cocktails and brunch to be had, and I can't bloody wait!
