A money-saving treat at Dim Sum House, Golders Green, London

imageSo, we are back in London and craving a little bit of cultured cuisine to recapture those holiday moments. Where better than to try a meal at our local restaurant ‘Dim Sum House’. Good service, friendly staff and a promotional offer that gives 50% off for only during their happy hour between 5.30-7.30pm as long as you pay in cash only. The food is high quality and flavoursome, freshly prepared. The restaurant itself is decorated to a high standard with deep colours and subtle lighting. Romantic and beautiful at the same time.

A fun day out at the Foodie Festival, Hampton Court, London

With it being a bank holiday weekend and having caught up on a lot at home, it only seemed fair to enjoy a day out before returning to work tomorrow. Having already arranged tickets for the Foodie Festival at Hampton Court in London, we took a drive over to check it out.

As we arrived closer to Hampton, it was clear that this was going to be a busy day… it seemed that many others had the same idea to visit today and make the most of the dry weather – albeit a little chilly. Continue reading A fun day out at the Foodie Festival, Hampton Court, London
