Brigadiers

Having lived in Central London for the last four years, I have decided I never want to leave. I love it here way too much and when the time comes to settle down in the suburbs, BW will have to pry me away from my beloved place. Everything is so readily available, convenient, and close […]

Since becoming pregnant, Lebanese food has been my jam, to put it eloquently. Well, just the hummus beiruty, to be precise. So much so, that my Uber Eats history is just a list of Lebanese restaurants located near me with one order: hummus beiruty, and maybe the mint lemonade too. I’ve been on a search […]

Although there are plenty of halal restaurants to be discovered, I always find myself going back to the same old places. These establishments are ones that I know I can rely on for having a good meal, visit after visit. Sadly, this list of mine has slowly dwindled down from numerous restaurants to perhaps three, […]

Last November, I was invited out to Ningxia in Northern China. I can see you guys rolling your eyes thinking, “we know, you haven’t stopped reminding us!”, but it was truly one of the best trips of my life. Asides from being mesmerised by the landmarks and the ways of the Hui Muslims out there, […]

Sambal Shiok Laksa Bar

As it is my last week of pregnancy, I’ve been trying to see as many friends as possible as well as eating out almost daily! I refuse to let the swelling and constant waddling get the best of me! There has been a restaurant on my pregnancy radar since I heard of it’s opening, and […]

I’ve never really been a fan of the Lebanese cuisine, but I’ll be the first to admit that my knowledge of Lebanese food hasn’t stretched much further than the cafes on Edgware Road and perhaps, really good manaeesh from Z&Z bakery. Don’t get me wrong, I could kill a shawarma at any of these establishments […]

Best Halal Fried Chicken in London

When I say halal fried chicken, I reckon the first thought that pops into your head is Sam’s, Chicken Cottage, Dixie, etc. I do enjoy the occasional spicy chicken wing box from Chicken Cottage, but no, I’m here to show you guys real halal fried chicken. So I’ve rounded up six of my favourite places […]

Mango Tree Part 2

Having visited Thailand a couple of years ago and experiencing the mindblowing flavours of authentic Thai cuisine, the task of finding a good halal Thai restaurant in London has now become next to impossible. Firstly, there are a lack of halal Thai restaurants! Secondly, out of the handful of halal Thais there are, none are […]

Iftar in London 2018

Iftar in London 2018

For most of us, tomorrow marks the first day of Ramadan. The first few days are undoubtedly hard; you’re grumpy, tired, and hungry. You won’t dare look at your social media which, of course, will be full of food – sorry! Over the month, you’ll become more accustomed to this new routine and will start […]

Ever since BW has become gluten-free, going out to eat has not been the easiest. Sure, he can eat most things but the delicious goodies like fried chicken, pizzas, and even burgers are off the menu! Surprisingly, many restaurants have started to accommodate for those that are intolerant or allergic, e.g. Bake St’s GF fried […]
