One of my favourite things about travel is trying the local food; so it must be no surprise that my favourite thing to do in Bangkok is devour every bit of local Thai street food I can get my hands on! Pad Thai, peanut chicken, curries, barbecued meats…literally everything!Continue reading
Whilst we were in Bangkok, one of my favourite places to eat and drink, has to be the W District – just a few minutes walk from the Phra Khanong BTS Station. Here you can get a variety of food, towers of beer and some amazing Thai food. What more could you ask for?!Continue reading

When visiting Los Angeles, you’ve probably heard of the Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach. Where better to sample all parts of Los Angeles than at the iconic Grand Central Market in Downtown LA?Continue reading
Flicking through our Lonely Planet Guide to LA, we read about Skooby’s hot dog – the little hot dog restaurants on the Boulevard. As we were staying approx 3 minutes from this place, we decided to try a hot dog on arriving in LA…I am not sure another day of our trip went by without us heading to this place.Continue reading
One of the best things about travelling the world is being able to try some of the most amazing food around the world. We asked travellers to share their favourite foods around the world.
Traditional Khmer dish called Fish Amok. It’s a lemongrass and coconut curry, typically wrapped in a banana leaf. It is served either wet or dry (you get asked for the option preferred when ordering). You can get it at any restaurant in Cambodia, but try and get it from a smaller, local restaurant to get the most authentic flavour.
One of my favourite foods is the Greek salad with Feta cheese. Although found in many places around the world, I particularly liked to eat it in Athens where it’s the most authentic. This traditional greek dish is not only delicious but also healthy and is definitely worth eating when visiting Greece.
Green Thai Curry
When I told everyone that I was going to Thailand, the first thing they said to me was: you're going to love the food. I didn't think much of it because as a vegetarian and crazy healthy eater, I don't always share the same perception of food as others. Well, wasn't I just all wrong! One of the most amazing things about travelling in Thailand was green Thai curry. Now I can't ever get it off my mind when dinner time rolls around, my mouth waters just thinking about it.

Picking just one favorite food is so hard because…I LOVE food. But since I have to pick one for this post. I’m choosing one that I’ve been craving recently: the pies and mash from Mother Mash in London. I love the tasty lamb pie with it’s flaky crust, popped into a bed of creamy mashed sweet potatoes and topped with the house gravy.
One of my favourites has to be a South African braai which is a great informal way of entertaining friends and family.Known in other parts of the world as a Barbeque a braai consists of various cuts of lamb,beef and chicken included are salads ,kebabs and the famous braaibroodjies which essentially is a toasted cheese sandwich made on the fire.
I love pasta and cheese and I think Italian food is a lot about it! There is a big variety of pastas and flavors and all end with cheese and a glass of wine. I love Italy and the Italian kitchen because every time I end up with a delicious dessert and “a shot” of coffee. Last but not least I like the passion of the Italians and I can feel it in the Italian food.
– Travel Life Story
If you’re eager to dive into the more luscious flavors of Asia, head to the Japanese cuisine ramen.
When I found myself in Kyoto, Japan; I was waiting eagerly outside a tiny ramen house named Ramen Sen No Kaze. Here I enjoyed the best bowl of ramen I’ve ever had the pleasure of devouring. Testing out a few different types, my husband and I ordered the Kyo no Shoyu Ramen (pork based) and a Yamato no Miso Ramen (miso based). While the Miso Ramen held up well, the Kyo no Shoyu officially blew my mind. Best dish I had our six weeks eating our way through Japan. Our only regret of the evening was that we didn’t head the advice of other travelers and double up on the perfectly cooked pork meat.
– The Unrefined Palate
Vienna’s café culture and sweet pastries have been world-renowned since before the establishment of the Austro-Hungarian empire. A must stop in the imperial capital is the Hotel Sacher, which still serves up the original sacher-torte (a dense chocolate sponge cake coated lightly with apricot jam and topped with thick chocolate icing). The secret recipe, invented in 1832, is still presented with a side of unsweetened whipped cream.
Hotpot in China
One of the best meals to have when in China, has to be their amazing Hotpot! It fast became a favourite of mine and is defintily worth travelling for!

So, whilst we headed back in England for Christmas, I decided to FINALLY go for Afternoon Tea with my mum. I am a BAD BRIT – I made it to the age of 27 without having Afternoon Tea!
