London – Fu Manchu (Clapham North)

A dim sum, cocktail bar which becomes a night club in the evening. I came across this great little restaurant called Fu Manchu, Clapham North, on the internet one day. A great location just off of Clapham High Street, inside a re-designed railway arch (you can even hear the trains running over the restaurant). Dim sum …

London Day Out – Broadway Market

Broadway Market is one of London's best and kind of 'secret' markets, which is nestled into the lovely East London. Of course, there are plenty of hidden markets in and around London, nonetheless, markets such as Borough, Spitalfields and even Brixton markets are now full of tourists and actually not really that enjoyable, unless you like …

Drink Review – Cinnamora (The new healthy Cinnamon drink)

I have recently come across this new drink called Cinnamora. And as you might guess from the name it is a cinnamon flavoured soft drink.

Amsterdam – Best Tapas Restaurant (Pata Negra)

I made a very quick, two day, trip to Amsterdam over the weekend. I have previously been to Amsterdam a few times and it definitely has to be one of the most charming cities that I have been to.

Really cool "hidden" place in London to take your friends or a date, for something a …

Best Coffee Shop in London | Allpress Dalston

Allpress are Coffee Roasters and Espresso specialists, first established in New Zealand in 1986. They now own a multiple of roasterys across the world including Auckland, Dunedin, …

Where to go for Dinner & Drinks in Oxford

As an ex student from Oxford Brookes, Studying, going out and enjoying living on Cowley Road for four years, I now have a pretty good knowledge of where to go out for dinner/drinks in Oxford. For a highly touristic city it is easy to get lost in the main-stream restaurant chains, which, to be honest are not always …
