Eating Our Way Through Cyprus

Food, Travel

//Good afternoon everyone,

This is the final post from my trip to Cyprus a few weeks ago… I should have posted this sooner but I feel so busy at the moment. (Where has the time gone?!)

Anyways~ I think that we can all agree that one of the best things about going on holiday is trying new foods and just eating LOADS and loads. Well…it’s one of my fav things to do anyway 😉

Pina Colada for me EVEY time (…the cherry matches my nails…)

Well, that’s what we did while in Cyprus! We ate out pretty much everyday and had fresh salads, bread, cheese, pastas, fruits and even some FAB cocktails.

Our favourite bar to eat at was called ‘Restomar’ because it was right on the harbour, covered in fairy lights and served some of the freshest food and cocktails ever!

This was one of our starters ~ it’s a Russian dish but the name escapes me.

Funnily enough, I know I just said how great the restaurant was but this ended up being our least favourite thing we tried the whole time we were there. It’s sourdough rye bread with tomato, and it’s not necessary a bad dish, it just wasn’t suited to our palates at all…but everything else was amazing haha (looks pretty in the photo though!)

Also, bread to share is always a must ❤

Fours dips came with the bread and these included beetroot caviar and hummus but I genuinely can’t remember the others (my fault for writing this blog post so late…oops).

I also had a strawberry daiquiri one night and WOW, it was lush 😍.

One of the main meals we had at Restomar was a mushroom risotto and a mushroom carbonara ~

Both were very tasty. My carbonara initially came with pancetta cubes but because I’m vegetarian I asked for it without, and they did this for me no problem! I liked that because some restaurants will not let you do that I’ve found, but they were super nice about it and it was so delicious!

I don’t have photos of our other meals, but we also tried a steak ( well Harrison did not me), vegan sushi (very yum), and Nachos. Harrison actually said the steak was one of the best cooked steaks he’s ever had 🙂

I’m a big fan of this place, and I’m a big fan of Cyprus. I hope I get to come back soon. //

An Evening in Cyprus

Travel

Hiya everybody,

I’ve been away for the past week in Cyprus enjoying some warmer weather and some epic food 🥰

Sadly, I missed the build up to Halloween 🎃 (which I absolutely LOVE) this year, but it was so nice to finally get on a plane and go somewhere different…is the return to pre-Covid travel on the horizon?? I hope so!

October is the off-season for tourists, which means some very quiet restaurants and bars!

I spent the week with my Boyfriend and his family in a lovely villa in Latchi (Northwest of the island) and spent most days relaxing around the pool and exploring the bars and restaurants along the beach ~

The first night we went to a fish restaurant and had a lot of great food, and I got to dress up!

Seriously obsessed with this dress – look at the low back!! Sooo nice

We ordered so much food that night (Lobster, lamb, platters etc.) but I actually only had an omelette 🤦🏼‍♀️…vegetarian life!

Because we ordered so much, they gave us a free platter of fresh fruit and some pitta and honey which was YUM. Seriously, it doesn’t look much but it’s delicious!!

Could eat honey pitta all day everyday

We ended the evening drinking wine by the pool until about 4am and proceeded to do that many nights after…the best way to holiday I think 😉

More to come,

Sunday Brunch at The Botanist

Food

Good morning ~

I went out for the most delicious brunch on Sunday and had to share some pictures with you!!

Me and two friends drove to a town called Chester (UK) and had brunch at 11:30 in restaurant we’d never tried before called ‘The Botanist’.

Between 10am and 12pm you can order brunch where you get a menu with 5 sections and you pick a small meal from every section 🙂

You get a little juice shot with it too! x

It’s a really fun concept and the food is honestly incredible! (Vegetarian options)

I 100% recommend the Nutella French toast 🙂

A smoothie for me lol

The brunch also comes with the option to order bottomless drinks for 90 mins ~

I couldn’t get this because I was driving but my friends defiantly made the most of this and ordered many glasses of spritz haha

After brunch we did a little shopping and bought a little too much (oops) before heading home.

It’s was actually 30 degrees in England on Sunday and has been for a few days now as we are having a little heatwave…

…So walking around the town got a little hot after a while – my car was scorching hot when we got back to it!

That’s all for now x

Much love,

Visiting the Birmingham Sky Bar

Uncategorized

Hello and I hope you are having a wonderful December first! I haven’t posted much on here lately as England went into a second lockdown at the start of November and I didn’t want to post something just for the sake of posting, ya know?

Happily, that lockdown finishes TOMORROW (Dec 2nd) so I want to post a lot of Christmassy content this month (well at least I intend to…we’ll see haha).

BUT before I do that I want to write about last March when the literal last thing I did before the Rona took over was visit a sky bar in Birmingham!!

Food area of Selfridges

It was my friends idea as she’s lived in Birmingham for a couple years now and really recommend it for a fun evening…

Before we went we had a day shopping and eventually got tapas at a Spanish restaurant, which was incredibly divine. Of course we also had some cocktails 🍸

We headed up to the bar around 10:30pm and sat outside with a view of the city ~ inside they had a piano and places to dine and it was honestly just a really lovely place to go.

It’s weird that it’s March again in 3 months…this year has gone so fast because none of us have done anything!!! I hope 2021 brings back some normality and adventures.

The German Gymnasium, London

Uncategorized

Back in May of 2019 I visited a beautiful restaurant in Kings Cross, London while visiting a friend who was living in the city at the time. The restaurant was named the ‘German Gymnasium’ and sold German inspired dishes. Even though it was more than a year ago, it was such a great experience that I want to post about it on here so that I can remember it in the future…

The food was incredible and we were both extremely full on our way out of the restaurant to make our theatre reservation for ‘The Comedy About a Bank Robbery’.

As me and my friend are both vegetarian, we had the same starter and main (as we usually end up doing!). We both had the soup to start followed by the ‘Schupfnudeln and Seasonal Young Vegetables’.

The restaurant was very elegant and pretty with a grand piano and seating over two levels. The perfect spot for a working/ business lunch!
