London: A Feeding Frenzy

I’m a foodie. The first thing I look for when visiting a city is the best paces to eat, and for weeks before any trip I can be found scouring restaurant reviews. Time best spent packing maybe. I might arrive with a suitcase full of socks and no knickers, but at least I have a list of places I want …

Edinburgh Fringe: 8 Survival Tips for Locals

The other day, I tried to buy cat food. This isn’t usually a momentous event in my day, in fact I can usually go months without feeling the need to mention the purchase of kitty kibble on my blog. However, this fateful day my poor beleaguered feline ran out of Whiskas was also the day Edinburgh Fringe 2016 officially started. …

3 vegans go to Tuk Tuk

Vegans like to talk about food. We have a weakness for food porn, and if you corral a group of us in a room together, I can guarantee the conversation will turn to our favourite things to eat. The strawberry daiquiri cupcake we had from Missy’s at Saturday’s Grassmarket. Which faux cheese is the best faux cheese. Who makes the …

Feast from the Middle East at Pomegranate (Edinburgh)

When my parents come to visit, it can mean only one thing. We eat. We stuff our faces like it’s our last meal, until we are so full we just about slide under the table in simultaneous food comas; my mum starts quietly snoring in the car back to the flat, my dad rubs his belly and groans. Tonight we …

#SummerOfMatcha Matcha-melon smoothie (Recipe)

I love tea. I really really love tea. It’s in my Twitter bio, says right there I am a fan of the stuff. Not just the everyday (soy) milky black tea I drink by the gallon, but also green tea, herbal infusions, and of course the almighty matcha. This stuff is rocket fuel! I’m not much of a coffee drinker, …

That time I got over my fear of tequila at CandyBar (Edinburgh)

I’ll be honest, the past few days have just been a bit of a comedown from my fabulous weekend in London. So when one of my favourite people asked if I fancied a wee shopping trip today, of course I was freaking delighted! After a wee wander around Primark, where I bought some utterly ridiculous by completely adorable hair pom-poms, …

Mondays, London, and spending all my money in 2 hours 

To say I had a great time in London at the weekend would be a gross understatement. I have gushed about the fabulous food and the even more fabulous company to everyone I’ve spoken to since I got back, and i just will NOT shut up about the incredible vegan pad thai Laila introduced me to. I wrote about it, …

The Land of the Vegan Meats: Loving Hut (Archway)

“Is there meat in this?” Of course there isn’t, I don’t eat meat. I finally made it to Loving Hut tonight though; this place has been on my wish list of vegan restaurants to visit for almost as long as I’ve been vegan, and every time I’ve been in London circumstances have conspired against me getting here. This afternoon I …

London brunches, bunches of flowers and the best vegan street food in the city

Today I was in London and I was hungry. Now that sentence sounds like an oxymoron. London is full of delicious vegan eats. Every time I come here I’m like a kid in a candy shop because there’s so much choice! So many places are vegan, vegetarian or just vegan-friendly that I usually end up eating enough for a week …
