…had afternoon tea at the Russian Tea Room

Whenever I go back to England, I somehow always manage to squeeze in an afternoon tea – even if I’m just back for a weekend. And while England would seem the place to do it, there is a little gem of a location here in New York to satisfy my cravings too – although it’s definitely not …

…ate Dirt Candy

It’s been a gluttonous slog, but I’ve nearly worked my way through New York’s top vegetarian restaurants. Yet one has been left on the list for ages now: Dirt Candy. There’s a reason it’s been on my list – unvisited – for a while. It’s a nightmare to get a reservation. When I decided to look for a spot in …

…took a vegetarian cooking class

Every month, I spend at least half of my paycheck on Seamless. So at the start of the year, I made a resolution to cook more. And of course it hasn’t happened. To give us some inspiration, I booked Ryan and I into a Vegetarian Couple’s Cooking class at the Brooklyn Kitchen. If you remember, …

…ate a Korean feast

Ryan and I love a good feast, so for his birthday treat, we decided to try out Hangawi in Midtown. As well as serving one of his favorite cuisines – Korean – Hangawi is also entirely vegetarian, so it seemed perfect for us. I’ve not actually been to a Korean restaurant since living in New York. …

…ate Japanese crepes

One of my favorite snack stops all year has been a Japanese dessert store, Minamoto Kitchoan. So when Rachel, who used to live in Japan, told me about a new Japanese pancake place on Spring Street, I was salivating at the thought. Like Minamoto, the presentation at Eight Turn Crepe is immaculate. In the window …

…survived the Shake Shack queue

Earlier this week when I was in Madison Square Park, I saw a familiar sight – scores of people queuing for Shake Shack, a burger bar in the center of the park. And it’s the best advertising, because I assumed I was missing something. No wonder lots of modern restaurants and retailers are moving towards …

…ate a Moroccan feast

One cuisine I’ve not had in New York is Moroccan, and as luck would have it, there was a deal going for a place up in Midtown. So Ryan and I headed there to fill our bellies. Midtown is an area where I rarely eat out, so I was interested to see if there was …

…tasted Ethiopian food

Today I headed a few blocks south of my apartment and ended up in Ethiopia – for dinner at Meskel. I’d never had Ethiopian food before and had zero idea what to expect, but Ryan had nabbed a very generous Groupon, so we decided to give it a go. Meskel is a simple little place …

…ate poutine for Canada Day

Today is Canada Day. But trying to find a Canadian-themed place in New York is like trying to find a Welsh bar in London. For a city that has restaurants and supermarkets for every nation possible, it’s bizarre that New York seems to have entirely ignored its nearest neighbour. I could hardly track anything down on Google; one forum …

…cooked an Indian Banquet

Since living in New York, Seamless has taken a hefty chunk of my pay check. But today I rekindled my love for cooking with a course in London. And there’s no modesty here: The results were impressive. Mummy Warren and I headed to Acton to create an Indian Banquet under the instruction of Angela Malik. …

…tried Malaysian food

Every month, I meet Katia, a university friend, for a gossip over sushi – and we accidentally get very, very drunk. Before our date tonight, I said that we had to forgo the sushi for something I’d never had before. Scouring the mid-way point between Katia’s Upper East Side pad and my SoHo spot (which …
