Malmaison, London | Amazing Brunch

March 23, 2015

Brunch is breakfast and lunch all in one right? I'm not sure if the 'brunch' at Malmaison can actually be classed as brunch, since all of us rolled out of there filled to the brim with breakfast, lunch and dinner! We were so full we didn't end up eating dinner that night.

A Guide to Eating in Chinatown, London | How to Spot an Authentic Restaurant

March 04, 2015


Chinatown in London has been around for years and years. It brings back fond nostalgic memories of dim sum Sundays with my family, buying my favourite imported magazines from Hong Kong and of my parents shopping in the crazily packed supermarkets. The choices of restaurants have really changed over the years, with Chinese food from all regions of China and beyond. New restaurants pop up, and old ones slip away.
