Fairy tale like cake shop

Standing in front of Peggy Porchen was like how I would imagine seeing the forest of Tangled meets Sleeping Beauty would look like: pink, floral and oh-so-charming 💗

This lovely cake shop based in London by Victoria coach station has just one of the most gorgeous exterior design I’ve seen to date.

The beautiful slant of the floral decor; skilfully artistic yet casually framing the doorway makes it seem like by entering, you’ll be transported into a magical, fairy tale land. Oh, and of course, a cute pink bike gently propped on the side of the door, seemingly transporting flowers from said magical land 💖

It is just so pretty! 😍

The interior creates the perfect, charming atmosphere you would have expected from the exterior design, with chandeliers, glass look-a-like chairs, cute packaged confectionary adorning white, victorian designed shelves and deliciously looking cakes is just what a girl needs sometimes 😊

This place is seriously so cute, like I can’t even.

The cakes tasted as delicious as they looked, my friend and I each had a slice of cake and a cooling summer berry ice tea on a warm, summers day in London ☀️

If you’re planning a girly day out in london or just a casual girls catch up, Peggy Porchen is definitely a place I’d highly recommend!

Space wise it is quite small so I do recommend going in smaller groups 😉

Deliciously, Gooey Matcha Fondant

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 🙂

Happy Valentines Day! 💓

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 😉

Ice-cream on a cloud

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 😉

Late night light desserts

Top Row: Inaya lulo, Chocolate pebble

Bottom Row: Cherry chocolate, Raspberry Rose

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

Bone Daddies – Shackfuyu

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.
