Ah, Amsterdam, you beautiful city.
I hope you all enjoyed part one of the Amsterdam Edit and all the fun and food it had to offer! If that wasn’t enough then fear not, there is always more, and here I am as promised with part two… Continue reading
Every time I go back home to Cambridge I love to visit my old favourites, obviously, but I also really enjoy trying new places and dishes too.
I always make a list of places that have opened that have tempted me to try, or recommendations from friends, or even places that are others’ tried and tested favourites that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet.
2018 was a good year of new food for me and although there was more than there is on this list, I’ve rounded it out to 12 of them. Plus, I’ve also added one of my boyfriend’s new favourites that he genuinely couldn’t get enough of while we were there. I’d like to say that a couple of these places are not new discoveries, but the dishes are and they just had to be shared. Continue reading
Amsterdam is the most beautiful city and after spending 5 days there I can definitely say it’s one of the top places on my list of ‘places I want to live’. I highly recommend you take some time to visit Amsterdam, even if it’s just for a weekend. It’s absolutely stunning and you can spend hours just wandering the pretty streets and alongside the canals.
However, Amsterdam is so much more than its aesthetic. It’s full of culture and history (the Rijksmuseum is amazing and the Vondelpark is gorgeous), but it’s also jam packed with delicious places to eat and drink. The Dutch have a lot of specialties that you don’t often see outside of the Netherlands, and they also have some sublime versions of things that you can, so you genuinely have to try everything!
I hope this little guide gives you a good starting point for your next trip to Amsterdam. Continue reading
Wicks is an English pub in the heart of Lima brewing and serving up traditional British style beers and pub grub, and it truly makes me feel like I’m back at home.
It takes a while to get settled into a new house, but I love it.
And in between all that moving and cleaning, a girl has gotta eat, right?
Where better than Matambrito…
This great little place in Punta Hermosa has already become a favourite.
They specialise in Pollo a la Leña, which is chicken cooked in a brick oven over a wood fire. There are other items on their menu but this is their number 1 dish.
I hope you all had a great Easter break, whether it was Thursday – Sunday, like in Peru, or Friday – Monday, like in the UK!
4 days is a nice little mini holiday and I spent the majority of mine eating. No surprise there then.
One of the places we visited was Naruto. It’s this great little Japanese restaurant that serves a damn fine ramen soup.
We’ve been meaning to try this place for a while, and holidays are always a good excuse to go out to eat! I also knew we would probably be eating a lot over the weekend so we thought a good soup would do the trick.
The front of the restaurant is plain black with their logo and gives nothing away.
But inside is a whole other story.
