London has its fair share of quirky yet delicious restaurant concepts and Burger + Lobster is definitely one of them. On a Sunday, I went with a few friends to the new Little Portland Street outpost.
Please allow me to introduce you to a delightful small plates place called The Providores on Marylebone High Street. Specializing in innovative fusion food, The Providores also apparently serves London’s largest range of New Zealand premium wines – aka a homerun in my book.
The Providores has two levels, with the upstairs a more formal dining room and the downstairs a casual walk-in spot that doesn’t take reservations. As a result, you’ll often see people lingering around outside, especially on the weekends for their legendary brunch.
On this visit, we opted for a few of my favorites to share. The first was Laksa, a smoked coconut, a prawn and lemongrass dumpling soup with green tea noodles, crispy shallots and coriander. The restaurant was nice enough to split the portion for us to share.
Today was an amazing day – Dunkin’ Donuts opened a central London location adjacent to the Baker Street underground!
As a former employee and huge fan, having a taste of home is pretty exciting. Dunkin’ even has a proper Iced Coffee with Splenda. None of this Iced Americano or hot coffee poured over ice – the real deal!
And yes, there are donuts. Lots and lots of decadent donuts – I was impressed by the flavor options!
I’ve been eating out for lunch more and more since Carrots + Daikon moved to town. A tiny Vietnamese place on Highgate road in Kentish Town, Carrots + Daikon offers a delightful mix of menu items inching pho, banh mi, salad boxes, summer rolls, and more.
Check out how delicious these lunch boxes look and you’ll want to come try one too!
Ah, Paris. Always a good idea, especially when it’s the setting for an epic girls weekend. Between the warm weather, incredible food, sightseeing and a few surprise encounters, the magic of Paris made this trip memorable. Here are my tips and recommendations on how to spend a girls weekend in Paris.
Where To Stay
I absolutely adore Hotel Le Bellechasse in St. Germain. Decorated by Christian Lacroix, the hotel is in a fantastic location blocks from Musée d’Orsay. The hotel only has 33 guest rooms, free wi-fi and the service is great.
