    The Food Diaries // 009

    I have the pleasure of writing this post from Mutay’s new desk, which we both built ourselves with blood, sweat and tears. JK, of course. It was a lot of work, though. It is our finest achievement to date. Anyway, I’m back at it again with another food post because food is love, food is life and food will never let you down. I was recently invited to SuperStar BBQ, which is located in Central St Giles Piazza. The location is ideal because it’s central enough to get home quickly for myself, but if you’re looking for somewhere to eat after shopping in Oxford Street then it’s only a stone…

    Spontaneous food trips are all we really need in life, right? After what felt like a ridiculously long week, I went to Mutay’s on Friday night, and we decided that we would go for ramen. That’s what you do after an extremely hard workout – dream about carbs.  Shoryu Ramen has been on our foodie list for a while now (our list has grown exponentially and we never seem to make a dent in it, but that’s neither here nor there), and who doesn’t love a bit of ramen? Meat, broth, noodles – you can’t go wrong really. Shoryu Ramen specialises in Hakata tonkotsu ramen from the Hakata district of Fukuoka…

    Y’all know how much I love Korean BBQ. Y’all know how much I’ve been craving it since coming back from New York. Well… I finally got my chance when Mutay and I munched on KBBQ a couple of weeks ago at this amazing restaurant called Arirang. We had been looking for a good Korean BBQ spot since coming back from New York and having some of the best KBBQ whilst over there. Set just off Oxford Street, we stumbled across this restaurant whilst coming back from a friend’s birthday dinner. We immediately made plans to come visit and booked a table! In hindsight, we probably didn’t need to because the restaurant wasn’t…

    What do we want? Steak! When do we want it? NOW. I am a big fan of steak. My mum never used to let me order steak when we went out, for fear of it “not being cooked properly.” I think it’s an ethnic parent thing, where parents want their steak thoroughly cooked – burnt if possible. Every time someone was cooking steak on TV, my mum would make faces if she saw there was any sort of pink being shown. Funny thing is, that’s exactly how I like my steak! Medium rare or medium well done. However, if it’s too well done then I know it’s going to be…

    The Food Diaries // 001

    I am always looking for new ways to spice up my blog. It’s kind of hard to blog when there’s nothing exciting going on in my life except for the increasing amounts of television I’m watching (although, I have yet to start Game of Thrones…) One thing that is always exciting in my life, however, is all the new places to eat I get to discover. That’s why I’ve decided to start The Food Diaries, because what better way to document my love of food? (Other than on Instagram) And so, to mark the first post of ’The Food Diaries’, my first entry will be about Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant…
