Lisbon: Where To Eat - Cheap Eats

We never claim to be luxury travellers - our top secret to being able to travel the way we have is to do your research. Not all good things have to be expensive, and not everything that is cheap is bad. Before our trip we did a lot of research on the best 'cheap eats' in a city which can sting naive tourists and leave you disappointed. 



Lisbon: The Best Custard Tarts

If you've ever been to Lisbon, you will know that you can't pass a street corner without seeing a bakery or pastry shop with window displays full of these little beauties. The custard tart is a national treasure, and we couldn't pass up the opportunities to try a nice selection of them whilst we were over there in the beautiful city. 

1. Fábrica da Nata
Praça dos Restauradores 62 -68, 1250-110 Lisboa

If you saw our last post from the Secret Food Tour, you would know that this is where our tour guide brought us for what she believed to be the best tart in town. Did we agree? We certainly did and we hit the jackpot first time as it was actually the first that we had. Perfect pastry, not too hard and not too soft on the inside. Goldilocks would have loved it! It was just right.


Lisbon: Secret Food Tour

What a way to kick off our 2018 foodie travels! When I, James opened the envelope on Christmas Day revealing Lisbon as our first travel destination of the year, the custard tart themed dreams began. As all great international trips have it, a food tour would be the way that we chose to explore a new city and its culinary history, and here in Lisbon, their Secret Food Tour had it all...


Event: The Reggae Brunch, London

Starter: Lamb Patties + Saltfish Fritters

Calling all bloggers who love to brunch! Fed up of your typical avocado on toast and poached egg or simply looking for something new to try? You've obviously come to the right place. Last month I attended my very first Reggae Brunch event, sadly another event without James but of course with my trustee fellow blogger, Ashlee Moyo.



Lunchbox: Couscous Stuffed Peppers

Following our previous lunchbox post, I have decided to create another couscous post because I am sure you have not used the whole packet from the last dish (yay to saving money)



Under 30: Soft Cheese Gnocchi with Bacon & Spinach

I don't know about you but gnocchi hasn't always been something I think of straight away when planning for a meal. We've had it once before and we simply knew we wanted to have it again.


Restaurant: Gail's Bakery - Queen's Park, London

On a cold and crisp Wednesday morning with a multitude of bags and ready to head back up North, my time in London would only become complete with a trip to Gail's. I'm going to miss it! A stone throw away from Queen's Park station is what has become our favourite London coffee shop and bakery, and it's a real wonder we haven't written about it before.


Lunchbox: Turkey Couscous Salad


I know we're already 4 days into the new year, but this is officially the first post on this blog for 2018 and to kick off the year, I, Jessica am a new woman. If you didn't already know, I recently got a new job and in my previous I used to work 5 minutes walk away from my house, which was super convenient and such a money saver. Going home for lunch everyday, how could that not be a dream?
