A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

No doubt about it – Mexico City is a foodie paradise. But it’s not all tacos, gringas, and tamales. Mexicans also love their sugar, and can often be found shoving sweets, ice cream, popcorn, cakes, churros, and pastries into their mouths. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth, but here in Mexico City...
The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

When I was on my backpacking trip last year, I ate out for pretty much every meal. When you stay in a guesthouse or hotel, there is usually not too much opportunity for cooking, and in southeast Asia it was cheaper to eat food from the street anyway. Now that I am living in Mexico,...
My 3 favourite destinations for eating on the cheap

My 3 favourite destinations for eating on the cheap

Throughout my trip, there were times when even I was astounded by how little I was spending despite doing the whole backpacker thing for months and months.  When I am away from home on a backpacking adventure, I rarely cook. It just doesn’t make sense because the food is generally amazing when you are on...
Confessions of a roti canai addict

Confessions of a roti canai addict

I’m one of those obsessive types. When I like a song, I will make that song my alarm clock, I will wake up to that song every day, and I will listen to no other song for weeks. When I fall in love with a book, I will read it and re-read it, underlining and...
The vegetarian's guide to Penang

The vegetarian’s guide to Penang

When you tell somebody that you are visiting Penang, the usual response is “Oh, there’s amazing food there.” There probably is but the vast majority of it contains meat or fish and I ain’t putting that in my mouth for anybody.  So what’s a vegetarian to do in Penang? I won’t lie, you probably won’t...
The famous Toh Soon Cafe of Penang

The famous Toh Soon Cafe of Penang

One of the main reasons that people visit Penang in Malaysia is for the food culture. There are hawker markets, street stalls, and cafes aplenty on this giant island in Malaysia. In the beautiful UNESCO protected area of Georgetown, there is one particular café that seems to be on everyone’s lips – a hole in...
The vegetarian's guide to Phnom Penh

The vegetarian’s guide to Phnom Penh

Travelling around southeast Asia as a vegetarian can sometimes be a struggle. The region is well known for its street food and yet it’s not really possible for vegetarians to eat at popular hawker stalls because the food is usually pretty meaty, and even if it doesn’t appear to include meat or fish, it could...
8 awesome cafes in Phnom Penh

8 awesome cafes in Phnom Penh

The dining and café culture in Phnom Penh is incredible – like, seriously one of the best places for food and drink I’ve experienced anywhere in the world. You can get (good) food from all over the world, you can enjoy a pot of tea in a comfortable atmosphere – and almost always for a...
When you’re sick of Khmer food in Phnom Penh

When you’re sick of Khmer food in Phnom Penh

If you’ve been following this blog throughout my journey across Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and now Cambodia, you might have noticed that I rarely post about food. Is this because I’m not much of a foodie or find it a boring topic to write about? Not at all. I love eating. But food from south-east Asia...
My new favourite eating spot: The Chiang Mai Vegetarian Centre

My new favourite eating spot: The Chiang Mai Vegetarian Centre

Travelling as a vegetarian isn’t always the easiest thing. As I travel through Thailand, I have to be extra vigilant because some of the delicious looking things for sale on the side of the road might appear to be vegetarian at a first glance, but could very well contain ingredients such as fish sauce. I...
Kingsland Road: A taste of Vietnam in London Town

Kingsland Road: A taste of Vietnam in London Town

Photo courtesy of noodlepie. The amount of time I’ve spent on this one road in my adult years amounts to, well, a lot of time. Why? Because it’s fun, noisy, cool, and a bit smelly – it’s everything I want a city street to be. Kingsland Road begins in Shoreditch, the epicentre of London Cool,...
5 Places for a Daytime Date in East London

5 Places for a Daytime Date in East London

If you’re in London Town for a while, you might fancy making the most of the city’s bash-your-head-against-the-wall dating scene. I can’t say I had the best of luck dating in East London, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t go on my fair share of dates. If, like me, you end up absolutely obliterated...
