Mud, Tooting

Cooked food from Mud, Tooting

I wanted to go to the Mud in Boxpark, Croydon but never actually got around to it before it closed and returned to just having the proper shopfront in Tooting. Luckily my hospital happens to be in Tooting and my appointments are usually done with just enough time to get sitting on a bench in […]

Molicero, Croydon

Tea and cake is pretty much always a winner in my books. It is even more of a winner when the cafe is a quiet place, the prices are decent, the portions are generous and the staff have a smile on their face. That in short is why I love Molicero a Portuguese cafe on […]

Nick’s Cafe, Bromley

Menemen and Turkish breakfast on white table at Nick's Cafe Bromley

I love exploring new places and trying out new restaurants and cafes but when I go into a place and sit down before realising it has marble tables and white plates I feel like I’ve hit the Instagram dream. On a trip out to Bromley to browse stores that are yet to land in Croydon, […]
