Incase you were or have been wondering where you can get a decent English breakfast, chicken and chips, pizza or cake, we’ve got a suggestion for you.

Having heard so much about the place, we decided on one of those days when there was free time from school and a car at our disposal, we decided to check it out.

The place: TRULY LOVELY PATISSERIE AND DESSERT Cafèsacramento estate, Calabar.

(Instagram: @trulylovelycakes)
Because it’s in an estate, it has a very cool ambience, serene and tres romantic (incase you’re wondering to take me to for a date *winks* )

We took several minutes to look around, take necessary pictures after we had ordered, of course.

Our Order arrived in about 20minutes; we had snacks while we waited. But it’s good time for small talk if you ask me.

*Zahzee: Omg! The meatpie omg*

Chakie: nah.. The sausage roll…

Catatan Si Ave

NANGGROE ACEH DARUSSALAM –Indonesia’s special region located at the northern end of Sumatra covering more than 22,000 square miles. It is closed to Andaman and Nicobar Islands in India separated by Andaman Sea. Not only Baiturrahman Grand Mosque is Aceh famous of, but also dynamic Seudati and Saman dances, picturesque beaches, heterogeneous tribes and culture, and most importantly its culinary journey involving abundant herbs and spices boosted by the influences from Arab, Indian, Siamese, Malaya, Dutch and Spanish.



1. Timpan

One of Acehnese traditional sweets served in the period of Moslem holidays (Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha). Either one or two days prior to the holidays, Acehnese women will start making the dish by preparing a young banana leaf in advance as the dressing. As the ingredients are flour, banana, and coconut milk completed with srikaya for the main filling, it is no wonder that its sticky, glutinous…

CPR for your meals

Do eat!

eat well plate image source: Health Canada




These are the essential components of each meal that work together to create nutritional, physical, and psychological balance.

CARBS: Sugars, grains, and starches – the only food fuel that your brain and other vital tissues will accept.  If you do not take in carbohydrates at meals, your body will make its own (from liver storage, protein, or fat).  If your body has to resort to this process on a regular basis, it will adapt to conserve calories by improving fat storage and possibly reducing metabolism.  For this reason, it is a good idea to include sources of carbohydrates with each meal; the trick is to keep the portion just right, because the portions that most of us are used to will most definitely lead to weight gain.

PROTEIN: This is what keeps you full, or satiated (in addition to…

Aroma Test Kitchen

You can make this vegetarian if you wish, but the best part is the minimal amount of time it takes to cook. Use your Mi Aroma and in 20 minutes (not 40!) dinner is ready; just what you want at the end of a busy day.

Choose a salsa that matches your “fire” level when assembling, then add slices of avocado and sour cream to finish.  A dinner for you or dinner for two.  Ole!

Brunch at Uzzuri Deli & Bar


As a child ,I remember Sunday family brunch out was a kind of ritual, sadly the process of growing up, when we children got involved in our own interest and activity, took away this simple pleasure of family the idea of brunch out itself was super exciting and transported me to my childhood.

We headed toward the Uzzuri Deli & bar, located at the heart of city –CP. This place is really easy to locate as it’s right on the main road. It’s cute, cosy and warm with a bar upstairs. This two storey café have a very comfortable and an old world feel ambiance.

Our elaborate English breakfast/brunch starting from spread of cereals, fruits, crispy bacons, baked beans, to the options of various egg preparations- a whole lot of mouth-watering n comfort food.

Veggie Velo – Review

Veggie Velo is a food truck, well actually, it’s a bike that travels around and sets up in different spots in the city of Adelaide. They offer vegetarian and vegan burgers and may I just say, the BEST burgers I’ve had so far on my vegan food journey.

veggie velo

Large, refreshing, plant based burgers with SO much flavour! I’ve tried their chickpea burger which is amazing. It has vegan mayo on it, which is the best damn sauce I’ve had in my life. This pictured tempeh & pumpkin burger which is, you guessed it, also amazing. The tempeh has such a meaty texture it would please anyone!

Sometimes a nacho burger is offered on the menu that I am yet to try but I certainly have the intentions to!

The only improvement I would like to see is gluten free burger buns! They offer the burger in salad form if you…

Pita Boss Food Truck


I’m not sure if this is just one of my hangups, or other people suffer from the same malady, but I envision food trucks as having exciting, gourmet, creative offerings. Pitas or salads, well, just sound too pedestrian to me and so I never got too jazzed about the idea of a food truck that just purveys these items. I can just go down the street to Pita Pit, Panera, etc. to get something just the same in a relative amount of time. But, alas, food trucks are the vehicle of convenience, so I wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to forego fighting traffic and fending off odd stares at a female eating alone on her lunch hour.

The Pita Boss offers up some of your favorite, old-standby pitas/wraps/salads in pita form. They’ve chosen clever names for their entrees – all reminiscent of “bosses” of our historical past. As…

Greasy Spoon


If you are looking for trendy or fancy or antiseptic, don’t go to Fuji Lunch (冨士ランチ). But if you want to step back in time for some good ole yoshoku (洋食)–ie: Western inspired Japanese cuisine that came about during the Meiji Restoration–head out Asagaya Station’s North Exit and hang a left down your second side street. There you will find the dingy, old diner that you’d probably otherwise pass right by.

Fuji Lunch is a small diner run by one guy in a white apron and chef’s hat. He’s not the most congenial or garrulous guy but this allows him to be quick with the food. The American Forces Network broadcast coming from the small radio certainly adds to the yoshoku atmosphere, with its bad music, bad ads and current events from Yokota Air Base. It’s got seating for 14 people–a couple of four-tops and six pickle green vinyl stools along the counter.

Doritos Pizza Launch

I am not a pizza fan, but when it comes to ordering one, Pizza hut is my only choice. The other day, I went to attend the Doritos Pizza launch party, so sharing my experience and taste review here.

The official launch of Doritos crust pizza was celebrated by Pizza hut and a little Crunchy party was thrown for the bloggers and media professioanls. The party had an array of games and fun activities hosted by Anoushey Ashraf. The venue was flooded with people and for a few minutes after entering inside, I could not fathom what was happening there! The coolest thing was the photography wall so I headed towards it and got a photo done with my bestie Nida. The hardcopy of the photo was handed over to us after a while, which looked pretty chic!

The Parisian temple of Bistronomy

Parisienne Lifestyle

comptoir relais paris 1

The Comptoir du Relais restaurant is definitely one of the best restaurants to enjoy this new lifestyle culinary known as ‘bistronomy’. It is located in Odeon, in the heart of Paris Latin quarter.

Awarded chef and ex-TV host, the friendly Yves Camdeborde only uses extra-fresh and seasonal products. His cuisine is creative, making traditional dishes so contemporary, with a very personal twist (or « un je ne sais quoi » as we would say in Paris).

The menu has a wide variety of yummy courses and a extensive wine list.

Make sure to order some cheese as they will bring to an entire plateau of Sanders quality provider’s huge selection to chose from.

One word about the setting. The decoration will makes you feel like at home, in an old-fashionned kitchen with formica tables and simple white tablecloth. You can observe the billboards pinned on the walls and you will even…
