Norfolk Broads Pubs

We were looking forward to eating out at a few pubs during our tour of the Southern Broads. We managed 6 during our week, and had some fabulous meals as well as tasting local ales. The pubs are listed in the order that we visited them. The Maltsers, Ranworth Ranworth is a picture postcard setting, there’s a village green with a local shop, and the tower of St. Helen’s church peaks out from the trees. The Maltsers is visible from…

Bar Central La Boqueria

La Boqueria Food Market

The Mercat de la Boqueria, also known as the Mercat de Sant Josep is a magnet for tourists. This superb food market is situated between La Rambla and the plaza of Sant Josep, it’s a busy, bustling and vibrant place. We tried twice during the afternoon and again in the evening to find vacant stools at one of the tapas bars in La Boqueria, without success. So that mission remains top of our list for our next visit to Barcelona.…

O Mylos tou Kerata, Platanias

We were drawn to the O Mylos tou Kerata by the garden terrace overlooking the road passing through Plantanias. It is said to be one of the oldest restaurants in Crete and it’s in a spectacular setting. The terrace is shaded by fruit trees laden heavy with oranges and lemons, as well as vines. I liked the hanging picture frames in the trees, drawing attention to the natural art growing there. At the back there is a Venetian watermill dating…

Cafe Enasma

Cafe Enasma, Lake Agia

After picking up our hire car from Chaniá, we decided to head for Omalos to see if we could reach the snow capped mountains. We were on the look out for a taverna stop on the way, and was intrigued by the swan signage for Cafe Ένασμα on the lake. We were delighted to find this lovely taverna right on the edge of the water, with a choice of tables set in a shaded garden terrace. The scent from the…

Korea Restaurant

Korea Restaurant, Hong Kong

We were walking back to our hotel at North Point, through Wanchai and Causeway Bay and we were looking for somewhere to enjoy our evening meal. We paused to check the menu out at Korea Restaurant and Jackie leaped up from the chair he was sitting on outside, and proceeded to persuade us to go in and try a traditional Korean barbecue. Never having eaten Korean style food before, we didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to…

Veuve Clicquot Brunch at Duddells

Sunday Brunch At Duddell’s In Hong Kong

We wanted to experience Sunday brunch in Hong Kong. Whilst many of the 5* hotels offer a Western style brunch buffet, we decided to dine at Duddell’s for their fresh and unlimited Asian cuisine with free flow Veuve Clicquot. What a fabulous gastronomy delight! Duddell’s is situated in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district, their restaurant on level 3 has been awarded not one, but two Michelin stars. The Weekend Salon Brunch is served in the salon on level…

Afternoon Tea At The Peninsula Hong Kong

When I asked Mike what he’d like to do on his birthday in Hong Kong, there was no hesitation in his response which was to have afternoon tea at The Peninsular. This nostalgic British tradition remains very popular in Hong Kong and although there are many places offering an afternoon tea service, The Lobby at The Peninsular is high on the list of the top ten recommendations. The Afternoon Tea service is classically British, served on a silver tiered stand,…

Cheesecake Factory, Las Vegas

There are four Cheesecake Factory restaurants in Las Vegas, we popped in to the one at the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets for a coffee break whilst shopping and ended up having lunch instead, as the dishes looked fantastic. If you don’t know the Cheesecake Factory brand, their menu has a whopping 250 dishes, which are made fresh daily. I counted 37 different cheesecakes on the menu, it’s a staggering choice and actually makes it very hard to pick one.…

Wicked Spoon, Las Vegas

There’s stiff competition for the title of the Best Buffet in Las Vegas. We really found it difficult to decide between our top three shortlist including the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars, The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas and the Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan. It was Sunday and finally we decided to go for the Weekend Brunch priced at $35 per person at the Wicked Spoon. Expecting up to a 30 minute wait, we found that there was only a…
