Blunders At Carluccio’s

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.

Las Iguanas — Kingston-Upon-Thames

Las Iguanas — Kingston-Upon-Thames

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 […]

Beating Those Ramadan Hunger Pangs: Suhoor Snacks

Beating Those Ramadan Hunger Pangs: Suhoor Snacks

Seven days of Ramadan (holy month of fasting for Muslims) have passed already and I think most of us have got in to the swing of things. In these immensely long fasts of almost 19 hours, we need to give our bodies fuel that will keep us going throughout the day.

Dishoom — Carnaby, London

Dishoom — Carnaby, London

It’s been a while since I’ve eaten somewhere worth reviewing. A relatively new addition to the Indian restaurant scene, Dishoom has really made its mark. There are hundreds of Indian restaurants in London so why does Dishoom always have queues outside? That’s for every branch […]

Meat Rack — Earlsfield, SW18

Halal Barcelona

The good news is that there are a few halal options in Barcelona. The bad news is that you may struggle to find anything other than Indian/Pakistani or Turkish/Middle Eastern food.

Yumn Brasserie — Croydon

Yumn Brasserie — Croydon

Although I live south of the river Thames it’s seldom I ever need to visit Croydon. Pictures of relatively new restaurant Yumn Brasserie’s burgers enticed me into making the not so long journey to South Croydon, a family birthday being the perfect excuse. So we […]

Barcelona Top Ten

Barcelona Top Ten

This week I was in Barcelona enjoying some quality time with my husband, i.e. an opportunity for the children to spend some time with their grandparents and us to go abroad without having to book two rooms or taste milk at the airport or pack a […]
