It’s been a while since I posted, but I really wanted to share this quaint, new Japanese restaurant in Piccadilly, London that just opened up not long ago; Machiya
I was originally drawn to the omurice that was on the menu but sad to say it was sold out when we managed to grab a table after the queue. I’ll be coming here again on Saturday so will be updating this again then
For now, I wanted introduce to you the most delicious and gooey matcha fondant I’ve had to date in London
Just look at that beautiful, delicious, gooey goodness oozing out!
Surprisingly I wasn’t extremely hungry so I had the chicken skewers as a starter. It came with such succulent & juicy chicken pieces paired with flavourful mushroom and peppers.
Overall, I was very happy with this place. Great find 🙂
It’s that time of the year again where love is in the air and anything cheesy and mushy goes. Or you may be anti valentines day; for those of you who use Spotify, you may notice on their homepage that you’re either one of either camps only; in love or broken hearted, lols, for all who aren’t fussed? Apparently it’s too bad, because you can only be one or the other 😂 (according to spotify).
All that aside, since it’s valentines day and I’m a huge sucker for all that commercial lovey dovey stuff 💖 today, Dominique Ansel Bakery, London (famous for its cronut originally from the US) is only selling pink coloured desserts! Definitely worth going.
I unfortunately won’t be able to make it but here’s pictures of when I went last month; for me to reminisce 😉
Ever wanted an ice cream in a cloud? Well, even if you haven’t thought about it, you can now give this a try in London! Milk Train is the name to look out for next time you’re in Covent garden to try the delicious and instagram worthy ice cream cone 😉

Yautcha (London) is famous for it’s Chinese food and dim sum. However, their desserts are not to be missed! All dessert goers are escorted to the dessert bar at the back of the restaurant. The desserts are western styled. They also open till 10pm usually so for all of you with dessert cravings late after dinner, this would be a great option!
I had the Inaya lulo (top right image) which was dark chocolate with a citrus/lime tasting fruit mixed in. Personally, out of the four I liked the Raspberry rose the most! It was a lovely blend of sweet rose with a slight hint of sourness of the raspberry and hearty chocolate.
What: Desserts at Yautcha
Where: Yautcha, 15-17 Broadwick St, London W1F 0DL
Why: late night light desserts craving
Shackfuyu; the fusion branch of Bone Daddies. Food isn’t all that special but I’d highly recommend their signature dessert.
What: Kinako french toast with matcha soft serve
Where: 14A Old Compton St, London W1D 4TJ
It’s a warm almond paste filled toast, paired with a decent helping of matcha soft serve. The combination of the warm toast with the cold ice cream is perfect. I would honestly come back here just for the dessert.
Worth a visit.
Another post on Magnum ice-cream, can’t seem to get enough lately! This time, in partnership with “Summer Streets” at London Regent Street, featured an array of outdoor entertainment; catwalks, fashion shows, photo booths & live DJs. The photo booth was really, pretty cool. Shame I didn’t manage to take a snap of it (too busy taking a snap of myself – ha 😉 )
Four, traffic free Sundays throughout July was the idea behind making Regent street, an even more
over crowded, tourist filled, family & children friendly tempting summer destination.
When: 24th July 2016
What: Summer Streets in partnership with Magnum
Why: Free Ice-Cream!
The most exciting part was free ice-cream! Magnum was giving away 45,000 free ice-creams on the day, including their new range of Magnum doubles as well as 16 dipping stations to build your own ice-cream #feelingspoilt
It was quite cloudy and windy on the day but it didn’t stop people from dropping by for a visit. Although there were queues, it actually didn’t take too long for us to get an ice-cream. At most we waited about 15 minutes at the dipping stations which in all fairness wasn’t long. I was happily chatting away with my friends, might just be down to having already had one double dipped Magnum prior to queuing; the sugar high was real.
At the dipping station; getting my drizzle on
End Result 🙂 Not quite as fancy as the ones at the Magnum pleasure store but these were free so I’m not complaining!
Happy vibes all round after all the sugar XD
