Having been in Australia the past year, I missed the opening of many a high profile London chain restaurant at Edinburgh’s St Andrew’s Square and one thing I kept hearing about again and again was Indian restaurant Dishoom and their bacon naans! Continue reading
I stumbled upon Nom Nom Korean during my first few weeks living in Brisbane. I found myself at a loose end craving something fresh yet flavoursome for lunch. I was enticed by Bakery Lane, where Nom Nom is situated. An enchanted looking little lane off Ann Street in Fortitude Valley not far from from Brunswick Street Mall that takes you to a courtyard of foodie heaven. You can get coffee in a cone from Flock Coffee, delicious looking crepes from Le Petit Paris Bakery and 2-4-1 Steak frites on Tuesdays from The Apo, which is only some of the great delights awaiting you.

Well it’s been 7 weeks since we arrived in the land of Oz and boy have we done a lot in that time. We moved into our fully-furnished flat on 5th September and have been living here for just over a month now!

I love a bit of history with my coffee, that’s why when I heard about Bunker Coffee on Brisbane Broadsheet, I just had to come and check it out! It’s a popular place with a lot of coffee competition around, but in the half an hour that I sat there, it was visited by office workers, families and passers by. It’s a popular spot, and I spotted refillable Bunker Coffee mugs in loyal customers hands. They even encourage you to bring your own refillable mug which I like as they’re not just out for you buying one of theirs to get a discount. They actually want to be green without the advertising that some coffee chains insist on. Continue reading
Being brand new to Brisbane, it was time to make some friends and what better way to do that than over brunch! I had joined Girlcrew Brisbane on Facebook and a few girls had said they quite fancied getting together. One of the girls had suggested The Roastery Cafe and what a great suggestion it was.

Edinburgh’s south side is fast becoming a foodie haven and there’s a new and improved kid on the block. The Salisbury Arms is a recently renovated Georgian Gastropub with beautifully finished features inside and out. On entry to the main restaurant you are greeted with a cosy yet open dining area and your eyes are immediately drawn to the roaring fire which is the centre piece of the room.
