German Food at German Gymnasium


German Food at German Gymnasium

Since I decided to hit the gym more often this here new year is, my friend and I headed for the German gymnasium last Monday. Not for a sesh of spinning but for a boozy brunch. Although I was spinning on my way home in the tube later.

The German gymnasium is a fairly new restaurant and bar in kings cross and is housed in a building that actually once was a gym. Not sure what the Germans had to do with h it though. We were meant to go somewhere else which decided to close without telling us, so we ended up at the German gymnasium without a reservation. We managed to perch up on the corner of the bar where we treated ourselves to some delightful cocktails.

The weather outside was frightful, but the food inside delightful. And stodgy. I went for a German cheesy sausage and truffle mash with sauerkraut. A creative take on the rustic Germanic dish. My friend went for the curry wurst with potatoes and a massive glob of curry sauce.

It turned out to be a dragged out brunch with more cocktails and even a bottle of Sekt so peckishness eventually kicked in again. Time for dessert. Rebecca opted for the classic apple strudel and vanilla custard cream and I had the extremely chocolate pot which hit the spot.

We had a great time with great food and even greater cocktails. I wish all gym classes could be more like that.

Indian Food at Chit Chaat Chai


Indian food is not exactly my favourite, but for the Indian food at Chit Chaat Chai, I would make a detour to eat at. It's a new laidback eatery on the Old York Road in Wandsworth, which seems to get hipper every time I go there.

New Year's Foodie Traditions Around the World


Another year over, another new year about to kick off. Tonight will be the start of 2017 all over the world, but the way the new year is rung in, will vary depending on where you're celebrating.

Apparently in Greece, the New Year won't bring good luck without smashing a pomegranate on the floor in front of the door. The revelation of the pomegranate seeds are supposed to bring prosperity.

Where to Eat in Luang Prabang


The upside of Luang Prabang being so touristy is that the dining options are endless, top notch and incredibly easy on the wallet. You can eat cheaply at a food market or 'splurge' at some of the town's finest restaurants. Here are some of the places I ate at.
