Indonesian rijstaffel experience in Amsterdam – by Deepthi

The spice trade relationship between Indonesia and Netherlands date to centuries back and there is no place better than the Netherlands to have the rijstaffel experience when in Europe! During my week’s stay in Amsterdam with friends is when I visited the ”Sama Sebo” Indonesian restaurant. It’s quiet near the Van Gogh museum, so after…

Eat Reading Festival – By Daniela & Deepthi

June is the lucky month in Reading, when we get spoiled with summer sun and food celebrations. Last weekend we took a peep at Eat Reading 2016, which kicked off with 3 days of street food goodies. Spread throughout three consecutive weekends, this month is promising for all taste buds out there. From sweet treats…

Healthy and Trendy in Dublin – by Daniela

I would have never guessed that almost at every turn in Dublin, one can find a healthy salad bar, a juice shop or local organic coffee. It doesn’t feel like you need to go looking for one – which lead me to believe that Dubliners have a very healthy approach to diet. On my short…

Dublin Foodie City Break – by Daniela

It’s finally spring in UK, with sunny long days that I can almost call warm – very welcome change that makes me long for travel and time spent outside. This is why I chose Dublin for a weekend trip, the hometown of Oscar Wild and Guinness (apparently whiskey too). What I didn’t expect was to have…

Milk Bar Reading – by Daniela & Deepthi

After a tiring day from work, returning back to Reading we were too lazy to go exploring for pubs we haven’t been to. And that’s when we discovered Milk Bar :). It’s in the town center and in walk-able distance from the station. So if you are looking for an independent bar with great music in Reading,…

The Elephant at the Market – by Daniela & Deepthi

How do you kick off a sunny beautiful weekend? Well, we decided to spend it at ”The Elephant at the Market”. This restaurant is right the heart of Newbury and so the commute to this place is quiet easy. From the outside and the inside it looks modern & classy with a crafty touch to…

La Granja M. Viader (Barcelona) – by Deepthi

La Granja M. Viader was created in 1870, & it’s just walking distance from the La Rambla. I came here mainly to try the churros and the hot chocolate that I had heard so much about. If you have a sweet tooth like me, you have got to try both. Dipping those crispy churros into the…

For the coffee lovers all the way from Rome – by Deepthi

Not sure if the statement ‘Italy offers the best coffee’ is overrated, but I am sticking to it!  Not only do you get top quality coffee but the prices are really cheap as well. If you are a tea lover, do try the coffee here, damn sure you would switch to coffee then and there 🙂…

An evening at Yates – by Daniela & Deepthi

We had little expectations from Yates, as judging from the outside we had already pictured in our heads a classic pub atmosphere with the usual pub furniture and cramped tables. Inside though, we were in for a nice surprise. The feeling is quite hip and trendy, while the space is very generous. We never had any problems finding…

A week in Rome – by Deepthi

The main reason for planning a long week in Rome with my better half was to not only enjoy its rich culture & history but also to try the varieties in cuisines available which we had heard a lot about from our mutual friends. So I did a lot of research to be honest just about food…

One day in Chiswick – by Daniela

I often miss calling London ‘home’- although only 30 minutes away, Reading is not quite the same. For old time sake, I’m putting pen on paper and recreating my ideal weekend pastime in Chiswick. A good Saturday morning would start with a milky coffee at ‘Artisan’ – a trendy coffee shop that also serves sandwiches…

Suvlaki (Soho) – by Daniela

Greece is the first foreign country I visited – so maybe I’m a bit biased, because I was lucky enough to be treated to home-made authentic souvlakis for the first time by a very talented cook. Yaam, only the memory of it makes me crave some more! That’s why, when I read about a new…
