Sexy Mamma Love Cicchetti

When I looked up places to eat in Nottingham, one of my first choice was Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti. I could live on Italian food for the rest of my life, so I do often go to Italian restaurants, wherever I travel. Now that’s said, I am also living in a magical world, and sometimes I just wonder into places, assuming that they are the ones I was looking for. And I don’t realise that they are indeed not… In this particular scenario, I walked into a restaurant, got surprised by the completely different menu, but still proceeded to order … Continue reading Sexy Mamma Love Cicchetti

Dishoom – London

Let me tell you, that finding a special breakfast/brunch place in London, that opens actually early-ish on the weekend, is not as easy as one would think. Most brunch places open around 11-12 o’clock! However, Dishoom opens at 9 am, and serves the most amazing breakfast dishes with some nice coffee/unlimited chai tea. THE OLD IRANI CAFÉS of Bombay have almost all disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all: courting couples, sweaty taxi-wallas, students, artists and lawyers. Fans turned slowly. Bentwood chairs were reflected in stained mirrors, next to sepia family portraits. Opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there … Continue reading Dishoom – London

And then you try to plan, buying tickets like crazy but it’s sold out everywhere… So you don’t have any plans anymore, you just go with the wind and end up in Stockholm with your bestie? No? Not a familiar feeling? Well it wasn’t for me either, until it was and seemed like the most normal thing to do. Booking hostels, packing our backpacks and flying to Stockholm. Visiting the city … Continue reading Stockholm

Tips for a London Trip; Hostel – Pride of Paddington Restaurant – Yori, Korean BBQ All about Eve with Gillian Anderson and Lily James, Noel Coward Theatre Sightseeing – Brick Lane This is the first time I’ve stayed in a hostel when visiting London and it’s been an absolute pleasure.
