One of the UK’s biggest vegan festivals, VegfestUK, is taking place on the 27th-28th October 2018.
It’s great that nowadays it is easier to be able to eat out whatever dietary restrictions you may have, whether it is breakfast, lunch, dinner or even afternoon tea that you fancy. Nosh Garden Kitchen specialises in a Vegan Afternoon Tea.
Family and friends are what keeps us grounded in life. It’s important to spend time with both. True friendships stand the test of time, no matter how busy life gets. It felt very lucky to be asked to share a day with a close friend and her pampering relaxing birthday treat. To top off the day, we decided to dine in the Studio Kitchen restaurant that was part of the K West Hotel.
It was ideal to go for Afternoon Tea with my friend who had first introduced me to the special indulgent world of this British ritual many years ago. Since that day, Afternoon Tea has been one of my favourite things to do.
Sundays are a great time to see friends over a spot of brunch. This time it was brunch with a difference – a dim sum one! Royal China is a popular place and luckily as we had got there before noon, we didn’t have to queue.
Away from the busy shopping end of High Street Kensington and just after Holland Park is where Down To Earth is located. Down To Earth is an organic vegan and vegetarian cafe serving organic food, fairtrade coffees, speciality teas and ice cream.
It seems like we all go through phases with certain things and that can happen when it comes to going out to eat. There are times when similar types of eateries are gone to.
Vapiano is like an upmarket fast food pasta and pizza restaurant. They have been clever in the way that they have done their set out, which means minimum work for the staff and more work for the customer. You are given a card on entry and you use this to record your food and drink orders.
For Chinese New Year this year, we were lucky to have our family member from overseas in town for it. To make it an extra special celebration, we went to Alan Yau’s Michelin-starred Yauatcha restaurant in Soho. This finally fulfilled yet another one of my dreams and that was to go and dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
