Taste of Londonis one of the biggest food festival in the UK, showcasing some of the best and newest restaurants in town. This year I decided to attend both Thursday and Fridays session, as it's been almost 3 years since my last visit. The atmosphere was buzzing and I was lucky enough to bump in to Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti during my Friday visit. All the food that I managed to try was delicious, with the portions being surprisingly big for a festival. It was a great 2-days spent eating my way through London's best restaurants.
Dubai is one of the most glamorous cities in the world, with so much to do and see. It is also to the home to the only 7-star hotel to have ever been made - The Burj Al Arab. This 7-star upscale hotel screams absolute luxury for the rich and wealthies. It is so exclusive that only guests and people who have reservations only can enter. Entering The Burj Al Arab was pretty spectacular with everything spelling grand and rich. We took a taxi here and was stopped at the entrance by one of the guards requesting to show our reservation confirmation before we could go in. The lovely Concierge team at The Atlantis, where we stayed for the duration of our trip,managed to secure a spot for Afternoon Tea at Sanh Eddar 'Reception of The House.
Every Asian household has one thing in common.. The love for Pho. I grew up eating Asian food, my childhood pretty much involved food. Being raised in a Chinese household, (not) surprisingly there was a lot of Vietnamese influence in every dish my Mama masterfully cooked up. She's a pro at Pho and thats where I get my big appetite from for Vietnamese food. She always told me that food taste so much better when feasting amongst your nearest and dearest. And with that said, myself and two closes friends booked a table atSalvation In Noodles. I've been following Salvation In Noodles on Instagram (@sindaltson) for a while now and I don't know why I've taken this long to eat here..
London is home to so many tourist attractions and this one should be on everyone's to-do list when you're in town. Located in Fenchurch Street, the Sky Garden is a large observatory deck overlooking London's skyline. If you're lucky enough to pick a day that's sunny and bright, you'll get to see London in its naturally beautiful form. I was there during sunset on day of my Birthday (May) and the views were incredible - I fell in love with London all over again. Tickers are free and will need to be booked via the website Skygarden.london
