The best Broasted halal Fried chicken

The Best Broasted

A few months ago, I read an email from a lovely Fowzia informing me of a Syrian restaurant that I just had to try. Now, I’ve received tons of these messages before, but most have been self-promoting their own or a close family/friend’s restaurant, so I’ve been a little sceptical. But this email was different. […]

A Weekend Getaway to Chewton Glen, Hampshire

Back in March, BW and I fancied a short getaway. Having already flown two flights (plus two returns) with a baby, we thought to spare ourselves the hours of torture up in the air and have a staycation in the UK instead. We needed somewhere close by, familiar, and of course, child friendly, but having […]

Refreshing Falooda Recipe

As the weather starts to warm up, the only thing I look forward to after a long day of fasting is a big frothy glass of falooda with ALL the trimmings. Yes, sev, ice cream, lots of rose syrup – the works! 

My Ramadan Routine

This blog post has been written through a paid promotion with Anchor butter Both BW and myself have always had crazy work schedules, with him working until 9pm during the week whilst I’m tapping away on my laptop in the evenings and throughout the weekend too. Clearly, time together is scarce which is why we […]

Good Friend Chicken

A while ago, I leaked a little secret of mine to you guys in a blog post. What secret?! A deliciously juicy, fried secret to be precise. I wrote about this place as part of my Halal Cheap Eats in London post, but really, these guys deserve a whole post to themselves because they’re that […]

Galle Sri Lanka

HGAT Guide to Galle Sri Lanka

Last year, BW and I struggled to find a holiday destination. As we were heading to Dubai for Sole DXB, we decided Mumbai would be ideal for a few days (read my halal food guide here) but still had a few days leftover. Hmm, where could we go that had a beach as well as […]

Mumbai Halal Food Guide

A couple of months ago, BW and I visited his hometown – Mumbai – for three days. I’ve travelled to Mumbai several times before, but it’s always been for wedding clothes shopping. Delicious food + trying to squeeze into a sari = not a good look. Although this trip was short and sweet, we managed […]

Costa rica

HGAT Guide to Costa Rica

I know, I know, it has taken me forever to write about Costa Rica. However, I was thiiiis close to not publishing as it was a really special trip for BW and I. It was one of those holidays that bring back such warm and fuzzy memories, and although we’ve enjoyed all our travels, this […]

HGAT Guide to Ningxia, China

Last month, an invitation popped into my inbox informing me that I had been officially invited to Ningxia in China. What, China? Wow, these spam emails are getting really good. It was only until I made BW check that evening, where I found out that not only was it legit (a new partnership between Emirates […]

Mandalay Golden Myanmar

Another flaw of mine: I like to sit on things. No, not physically sit on objects, but I like to contemplate and have a good long think when it comes to any decision making in my life. Most of the time, especially with big decisions, it tends to work in my favour. Unfortunately the same […]
