Travel Report: Young Vegans Pie Shop, London.

Young Vegans Pie Shop. May 2019. I’ve always been a committed meat eater, for the most part. I do like me a bit of chicken, some crispy pork, a delicious steak, cooked medium rare if you will. When I was in Beijing I went crazy for duck, while take me to a Lebanese restaurant and […]

Travel Report: Richard’s Kitchen, London.

Richard’s Kitchen, Tooting Bec, London. May 2019. It was a sleepy afternoon in Tooting Bec and Henry and I were in the mood for a Sunday Roast. In fact, I hadn’t had an English roast in over two years! As good as the food is in China, they’re not so shit hot when it comes […]

Travel Report: Dee Light Bakery, London.

Dee Light Bakery, Tooting Bec, London. May 2019. Boy have I had some fun over the years exploring the rich cafe scene of London’s Tooting Bec neighbourhood.

Travel Report: Bun Cha Nem Cua Be Dac Kim, Hanoi.

Bun Cha Nem Cua Be Dac Kim. April 2018. As anyone who’s ever been to Vietnam will surely attest, the food is just phenomenal. Having already sampled some of Hanoi’s tasty Banh Mi sandwiches, I was keen to delve deeper into the national cuisine during my time in the capital. One evening, after a full day […]

Travel Report: The Strand Restaurant, Kep.

The Strand Restaurant, Kep. —— August 2020. Sometimes the most memorable travel experiences are the ones that come completely out of the blue. That place you didn’t even know existed. The one you ended up stumbling upon when your plan A didn’t work out. This is precisely what happened to Sladja and I one evening in […]

Travel Report: Kep Crab Market, Cambodia.

Kep Crab Market. —— December 2015 & August 2020. It was late afternoon and the weather was not improving. While the rain had finally died out, there was now a blustery wind cutting in from the sea as we approached Kep Crab Market from the road that winds around the cliffs. With our arch nemesis […]

Travel Report: Hotel Old Cinema, Kampot.

Hotel Old Cinema, Kampot. —— August 2020. Of all the places Sladja and I dined at during our time in Kampot, nowhere could match the charm and atmosphere of Hotel Old Cinema. Dating back to the 1930s, the building began life as a Chinese theatre called Maison de theatre le grandeur. During its golden years, they put […]

Travel Report: Bookish Bazaar, Kampot.

Bookish Bazaar, Kampot. —— August 2020. There’s a well-worn saying about sleepy towns that goes something like: “It’s small and relaxed, but has everything you need”. Unfortunately, this doesn’t apply to the charming Cambodian outpost of Kampot. In fact, one of the things that struck me during our two month stay is how, if we lived […]
