German I hear you say? When did Germans start making doners? What kind of blasphemy is this? Well, the ‘traditional’ Turkish doner kebab was introduced to Germany many years ago by the German Turk community. One of the doner joints was called German Doner Kebab […]
Despite not being a fan of conventional ready meals, I was so excited to try these ready meals by Foodery UK. Firstly they’re fully halal and secondly the bright and colourful packaging is so enticing that I couldn’t wait to heat them and give them […]
A few months ago I met the Halalnivore team at the London Halal Food Festival. The buzz around their stall and enthusiasm stood out from other businesses and as promised Halalnivore sent me a starter box for reviewing. What is Halalnivore? Halalnivore are a gourmet halal meat specialist who deliver […]
One of the most breathtakingly beautiful sites in the UK is in Dorset, and it is less than a three hours drive from London. The area we visited is called Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove which are a 5 minute drive from each other but most […]

After many unsuccessful attempts I finally made it to Royal Nawaab for an evening of overeating. After an hours drive (yes it took a whole hour) I parked up after seeing my friends queuing up outside. I was running a bit late so missed out on […]
I love a good dessert place and there seem to be so many popping up all over the place recently. However the owner of Indulge had their finger on the pulse over ten years ago when they opened Indulge. Pinner is my hometown and Indulge wasn’t […]
Tonight was one dinner that I will never forget! Why am I blogging about Carluccio’s? Well let’s just say I now fully understand why those people who observe a stricter halal diet than myself and only eat at restaurants that don’t have pork on the menu, do what they do.
A surprise birthday dinner for a friend brought us to Las Iguanas in Kingston for some Mexican food. A lot of people don’t like Mexican food for some reason — perhaps it’s the refried beans that turns people off, but I love it and was […]
School is almost out! Whether you’re counting down the days to the summer holidays or dreading them, either way for parents day trips are imminent. As the animals live outdoors, summer is the best time to visit safari parks. You can read my review of Woburn Safari Park on parenting […]
