Stax Diner

Last Sunday, I was in a bit of a dilemma. Seeing as Ramadhan was beginning the next day and the thoughts of 20 hour fasts were running through my mind, I was having problems deciding on what deserved to be my last meal. It needed to be something fattening, something sweet, and definitely something absolutely […]


Over the last two weeks, I’ve been a busy individual. I took an all of a sudden flight to Bombay which you guys saw on my Instagram and proceeded to finish all my wedding shopping in the space of three days. Of course, me being me, I ended up falling sick and the rest of the […]

Rodizio Rico

*THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED* *The comments section of this post have been closed* One day, BW and I were out and about, strolling along the streets of Bayswater, when he noticed something out of the corner of his eyes. He stopped in his tracks, leaving me to carry on walking and talking to myself. When […]

Rihla – UK’s First Halal Travel Event

Last week, I was kindly invited to attend Rihla – the UK’s first halal travel event – at the Arab British Chamber of Commerce. Considering I had just arrived back from Dubai a couple of days beforehand, it seemed fitting to see what this event was all about!

The Dorchester’s Afternoon Tea

So you know how in my household we celebrate birthdays for one entire week? Well it’s still mum’s birthday week meaning more celebrations and more food! Last week, we took a trip to China Tang for a nice family dinner and today, we decided to do The Dorchester part two and hold mum a surprise […]

China Tang

My mum is one of the greatest people to have ever existed – no sorry, she is THE greatest person in my life. She has been my best friend since I was little and even when I gave her grief during my teenage years; she still continued to love me unconditionally. One of the best […]


You know how you get one of those small restaurants on a side street that you tend to drive past, think it looks interesting and then completely forget about its existence? So Colbeh is one of them. On a road just off Connaught Street, you would instantly forget about it – well that’s what I […]

Loco Mexicano

BW and I (well me) decided to celebrate valentines day over two days. He would take over the Friday celebrations while I had to organise Saturday night. Naturally, his evening went great. He decided to cook dinner at home for the both of us and delegated me the role of making a mouth watering… salad. Yes […]

The Ledbury

**This restaurant no longer serves halal!** A couple of weeks ago, it was my 22nd birthday and naturally I insisted on celebrating for a whole entire week; otherwise known as birthday week!! I love birthday week; not is it just a whole week of celebrations revolving around me but it means a whole cheat week of […]

Portobello Market

Despite the windy and wet weather of London (typical!), BW and my wonderful self decided to make the most of the day by going for a stroll. BW suggested Notting Hill and I was feeling hungry, as usual, so it only made sense to go somewhere where there was plenty of food available!
