Cafe Brood's Paella, Borough Market

It is true that sometimes the best things in life are found right at your doorstep. Take paella for example. Whenever I travelled to Spain in the past, I was at a quest of finding the best paella ever. But all the time, I was left disappointed. The paellas that I had in Spain so far were either pale-looking, lacking in ingredients or the rice was half-cooked. Perhaps I didn't go to the right places for paella. But nevertheless, I found the best paella I have ever had - in where else, but Borough Market. 

Since I first had the paella at Cafe Brood in Borough Market, I never looked anywhere else. Now, everytime I crave for some good paella (which is at least once a month), I would go there. It may not even be authentic Spanish paella, but who cares? It is what I expected paella to look and taste like, so it's all good for me. Besides, you have a choice between prawn and my ever favourite Spanish chorizo. And for a reasonable price of less than 7 pounds, you'll get a very satisfying meal.

Served in a styro foam, simple yet it may well be the best paella you can ever have. :)

And then have it with Rekorderlig and you'll definitely be in heaven. Well, for me anyway.
Cafe Brood
1-6 Green Dragon Court

A plus is the fact that the majority of the staff, especially the chef are very friendly. Be prepared to queue though when you go there as it can be really long, especially in the summer. But I tell you, it's worth the wait.

2018, Thank You For The Roller Coaster Ride!

If I have not said it before, New Year is my favourite time of the year as it gives me the opportunity to reflect on the life that was and to look forward to the life that will be.  2018 was indeed a roller coaster ride of emotions, but I remain grateful because those emotions provided me with valuable lessons to be learned. I guess it is fair to say that 2018, you gave me false hopes at the beginning, but then you gave me the light in the end.  So, how did my 2018 go? Well, I documented my journey in my instagram account, so here are a few of my musings that best describe the year that was: 1. Because we have each other, it's good vibes only. - J and I had some minor health scare at the beginning of 2018. As minor as it was, it gave us emotional instability and some degree of physical challenge. I came to a point when I felt like I couldn't do anymore, however, I was reminded that J and I were in this together. The support that we had for each other during this chal

Afternoon Tea in London: My Experiences in 2022

Afternoon Tea has become a huge part of my life since 2006. It has been one of the things that's keeping me sane and happy, especially when life seems challenging and I need something to cheer me up. This is the reason why I didn't even realise that I may have actually overdone it last year. But I have no regrets because I enjoyed every single Afternoon Tea experience I had then, most especially because I shared those experiences with people who matter, old and new. In fact, I had some of the most memorable Afternoon Tea experiences last year, and I'm going to tell you why. 1. The Claridge's - Brook St. - Afternoon Tea at The Claridge's was on top of my list last year and I am glad that I was able to share this experience with two wonderful friends, Damaris and Veronica. Perhaps I could say that this Afternoon Tea sealed our sisterhood. It's amazing because despite our huge age difference, we get on very well. And this is why this Afternoon Tea at The Claridge&#

Restaurants in London: My Experiences in 2022

Just the thought of writing about my London restaurant experiences last year makes me feel like a true food blogger (haha, who do I think I am?), when in reality, I am just someone who loves a meaningful catch up with friends over good food and enjoys writing about them. I am very blessed indeed to have friends who share the same passion for food, and who are willing to explore the London food scene with me. In 2022, a few of my favourite restaurants sadly permanently closed following the pandemic, however I also saw the rise of newly opened restaurants and cafes in the capital. In fact, my list of "restaurants and cafes  to try" is growing rapidly as there are a lot of new restaurants that look really promising. And this is one thing I love about London - the restaurant scene is vastly diverse, you will never run out of options to choose from. Also l ast year, I revisited some of the restaurants that are close to my heart. I also managed to tick a few boxes on my restaurant
