Chinese muslim lunch in Beijing

I land in the Chinese capital on a very humid, hot and grey Saturday morning. My first stop is The Opposite House, a cozy modern Japanese boutique hotel in Sanlitum I discovered last year, which will be home for the next few days. As soon as I open the door…


One of the reasons why I am in love with New York

Did I mention I love NYC? This past year I have spent quite some time in Manhattan, over a few trips, which made me fell in love with NYC over again. I still love London, and I prefer it to New York to a certain extent. I had some amazing…

Valletta Malta

Valletta, la Superbissima

Back  in May, I had the chance to spend a few days in Valletta, the Maltese capital. I was in Valletta for work, but managed to squeeze a little sightseeing, walking around the utterly beautiful old town, and enjoying a completely unexpected and fabulous dinner.   Valletta reminds me of…

Lazybones… deliciously slow cooked pork in Farringdon

Last week I met my friend C for dinner at Lazybones, a little bar and restaurant newly opened in the heart of Farringdon. They offer a pretty interesting American inspired, slow and fast cooked, street food menu, excellent craft beer and delicious (and pretty stiff) cocktails. The interior décor is quite unusual, with faux graffiti on the walls, pop…


Ode to Bone Daddies

Last Thursday, after a morning of pretty useless meetings, I was feeling a little blue, and I needed  a good cheer up. When I am in a bad mood, my three antidotes are either a long chat with my best friend, a Bikram yoga class, or a little foodie adventure….


A tasty excuse for Brunch at Caravan King’s Cross

I love my breakfast, the aroma of freshly made coffee, rich Greek yogurt with raspberry and crunchy granola, crispy piping hot almond croissants, and the papers, of course. But I love brunch even more. It’s a perfectly acceptable excuse to dress up on a Sunday morning, have a second breakfast,…


Ladies who lunch in Macau

In Macau for a short break, I jumped to the opportunity to have a catch up girlie lunch with my friends at ‘La Paloma’ , the charming restaurant of Pousade de Sao Tiago, a 17th century Portuguese fortress, now converted into a hotel. I woke up to this amazing view…


A new Bombay Cafe’ in London: Dishoom Shoreditch

Being a huge fan of Dishoom Covent Garden, I couldn’t wait to try out their new Shoreditch restaurant, currently in soft opening (and with a 50% discount on food until 18th October). I finally managed to visit it on Saturday night. And I love it! Tucked away in Boundary street,…


A French-Indian dining experience

A couple of weeks ago, I organised to meet with a group of friends for dinner. It was the 11 of us, and after a little search, I managed to reserve a table at La Porte des Indes in Marble Arch. La Porte des Indes has been part of the…
