A pop-up breakfast place in Istanbul

How novel is that! Of course I am used to the idea of pop up restaurants, shops and what so ever, but a pop up breakfast place is definitely a new thing. If you follow my blog you should already know breakfast is kind of my thing and I do take it very seriously. To this […]

Cute atmosphere with lovely people and a ma ziiiiiing burgers….Try New York with Cheese and then thank me…The meat is […]

Novikov versus Nobu: Asian Taste Wars in London vol 2

I have to admit that I had reservations when  it comes to eating Asian at a place owned by anyone but Asian origins. I  thought such a place could be  super stylish but the food would never beat an authentic Chinese or Japanese. That is why I neglected Novikov, Asian restaurant operated by a Russian company for quite […]

Small outside big inside: Yasemin and Tuncel’s

Small  is  the new big…a definition well appropriate for  my new find in town. Yasemin and Tuncel’s roastery and ice-cream shop. This little shop is tucked away in Gokturk, Istanbul’s posh suburb. Owned by a cute couple and designed by Monocle design team (yes, yes, yes!) this little shop offers you a good range of coffee and […]

Socially eating at Social Eating House London

Hats off to Jason Atherton! I loved his latest outpost in Soho, Social Eating House. The name fits perfectly to the neighbourhood and so  is the  place. Let me first start with interiors:  It is artsy chic with an eclectic, contemporary design with a soul. It has hidden surprises like the bar upstairs “Blind Pig” , with a […]

Champagne Brunch in Istanbul: Konsolos

I am often asked where to questions when it comes to Istanbul. And one of the key topics is always about breakfast…I have my usual suspects like Assk Kahve and Lucca but time to time I  enjoy spicing it up and discovering new venues. Here is my latest venture…Located in the ever popular Sishane/Pera neighbourhood, Konsolos offers champagne […]

My go to coffee place in Rome: Caffe Greco Antico

If you are in Italy, it is a known and “proven many times” fact that you can never do wrong with coffee. Not unless you insist at calling your coffee just as “latte (cause it means milk)” instead of ” coffee latte” or “latte macchiato”. It is always good. So anywhere you go, you will […]

Where to go to breakfast in NYC ? Joseph Leonard (New York City hot spot)

Joseph Leonard, a lovely, lovely place in NY, down in West Village is perhaps a never disappointing favorite in New York to get a good brunch. Hands down, it has lovely food but I really love the feel of this small cafe. It has a bohemian feel which is really refreshing after all Nordic inspired cafes […]

Discovering Ligurian coast in Italy…Italian Riviera

When you are in Italy, it is easy to like the town, like the food, like the people. Top that with beautiful, azure sea line, small local beaches and make yourselves welcome to Liguria. We always think about Positano, Amalfi or Portofino when we think about Italian coast. Last year, I drove along Genova to […]
