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
Today, my colleagues and I decided to head out for lunch to a place quite near to our offices called ‘Mother Mash‘, based on Leadenhall Street between Aldgate and Bank Underground stations. Quite often with such a central location, it is difficult to find somewhere that serves food at a reasonable price in a restaurant environment which was exactly what we wanted.

If you are anything like my boyfriend and I then you will be sure to love a fantastic little restaurant that we found in West Hampstead called The Banana Tree. Serving a tasty range of Indochinese (pan-asian) food, their motto is to “spread the love of great food” which after a spontaneous yet fantastic meal there I was more than happy to do!
We decided to drop in on a busy Friday evening with the desire to try somewhere new for our weekly ‘date night’. Continue reading The Banana Tree, West Hampstead, London
Today I had a rare day in London and so decided to take a trip over to Wood Green, an area that I hadn’t yet been to but have heard quite a lot about.
I decided to take the Picadilly Line from Kings Cross Station up to Wood Green which took around 20 minutes due to the efficiency of the service – a rarity I know! Wood Green tube station is located at the top of the High Street – upon leaving the station I was directly opposite the Cineworld cinema before proceeding to walk along the High Street.

Today I stumbled upon a pretty special little bakery called ‘Beigel Bake’ (pronounced ‘Bagel Bake’) at Brick Lane, East London at 159 Brick Lane, my first time visiting but certainly won’t be the last! With an assortment of freshly baked bagels (their specialty) available with or without fillings, as well as cakes and pastries, anybody would be certainly spoilt for choice.
I managed to get a chicken filled bagel, slice of carrot cake and a large chocolate brownie slice for £3.30 which by London standards is pretty incredible. Service is fast despite being very busy during the lunch hour and staff were friendly and chatty.
If you’re in the area and looking for a light bite to eat then this is definitely the place to go. They are open 24 hours a day providing tasty and good quality food at very affordable prices.
