the cronut

Happy Sunday (or not). I was trawling through my photo roll, reminiscing about London and I realised that I’ve never, ever posted about the cronut.  For the uninitiated, a cronut is a hybrid between the croissant and a donut – think of it as a donut-shaped croissant with flaky layers of buttery pastry, filled with…

London: Pachamama

How do I even begin to describe this meal? It seems like sharing plates have become the norm in London – not complaining because it just means more variety! Pachamama was the first time I had Peruvian and yes, Peruvian is more than just ceviche. The sea bream ceviche with passionfruit, kumquat and ponzu went…

Honest Burgers

The Burger Chronicles continue. I finally, finally, FINALLY tried Honest. Slowly making my way through my burger list PLUS since ZX raves about them all the time (they’re her fave) and Tess loves their chips, I had to taste them for myself!!! Went during lunch hour and we were incredibly lucky to score a seat…

KELLIE’S 21ST AT NOBU

So yes, exams are coming in about a few weeks, and here I am. Honestly this is a meal I want to etch into my mind FOREVER. MINDBLOWING, JAWDROPPING, ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT FOOD with the BEST COMPANY EVER. I sound vaguely high on drugs but honestly I don’t know how to describe what a dinner it…

10 Greek Street

This is scaring me really. 2nd update in 2 weeks.. and all in London. 1) I need to stop going to London. 2) I NEED TO STOP SPENDING MY PRECIOUS £ ON FOOD. 3) I need to exercise. I am so happy with 10 Greek Street – central location, fantastic service, and humble, humble food….

I was particularly lucky to get a weekend reservation for 3 a week before we were slated to go because weekends were completely reserved till…

Pictorial: LOBSTER!!!!!!!!

LOBSTER ROLL: sandwiched between buttery toasted bread, this is God’s gift to mankind. The dressing is so subtle and the roll just steals the show. There isn’t that much lobster though, and um, it’s not something I’d order if I went to B+L on my own, but since I was sharing the lobster with Pete…

BREAKFASTS IN LONDON

Hello friends!! I know, I have been LAZY in updating but because Kenneth reminded me that I have a legacy of tummytay to upkeep/maintain/omg idk how do I describe continuing a legacy? I am BACK. It’s one of those days that I’m not swamped with work (yay!) and so more pictures too. This entry is…

Adventures with Double Chin Chay: Brighton, Dorset & London

Because my old macbook died completely on me. Because I’m using a new Macbook Air. Because I was busy backing up every single file I have/had. Because SCHOOL STARTED and Equity and Trusts is incredibly difficult.. the list could go on and on, but anyway, the most important thing is: UPDATE FROM TUMMYTAY! Tummy Tay…
