Bread In Common

Bread in Common is a lively restaurant in Fremantle, just 30 mins away from Perth city centre, perfect for large family or friends get-togethers dinners. The food is made for sharing with loads of small dishes and the cooking is Modern European. As I went here with my boyfriend and his family we got to try quite a few dishes which was great.
We started off with lamb ribs which were delicious. I always love ordering lamb and this one was cooked perfectly.

The cuttlefish with peas and black bean was nice but didn`t really think the peas went that well with the fish.

Rosemary potato chips, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

I don`t remember for sure the name of this fish but I think it was cod which went well with the broth.

One of my favourite salads didn`t disappoint: apple with spring onion, and kohlrabi. Love the mix of sweet and sour in this salad.

The dessert was the highlight of the night. There were loads of flavours going on: chocolate cookies, raspberries, ice cream, raspberry jelly, blueberries, but somehow everything worked really well together. We cleaned up the plate and we were ready to order another one.

Gymkhana London Restaurant Review

At the top of my 2015 restaurant wishlist was Indian and Pakistani inspired restaurant Gymkhana that just recently won its first Michelin star. The venue is very colonial Indian inspired with dim lights and dark coloured furniture making it perfect for a romantic date night. Overall the food & drinks were lovely and I`m definitely looking to go back and try one of their curries as well.
We started off with the potato chat and chickpeas which was amazing to have with naan although definitely more than just a snack as the plate was quite big and very filling.

The grilled prawns were my favourites of the night. Full of flavours and smokiness from the grill, they were fantastic. They were really spicy though so the moment I had the first bite my face went all red hahah. I must have drank like a full jug of water while eating these :).

The wild muntjac biryani was delicious although quite filling due to all the rice so we didn`t manage to finish it all but it will definitely be a great dish to order if you come with a few friends so you can share.

The dessert was very interesting - a chocolate filled samosa with ice cream and burfi. The samosa went really well with the ice cream but didn`t really see the point of the burfi. Still a nice way to end a great meal.

Last summery outfit before it`s back to coats and boots outfits. We took these photos in Singapore after a long day walking around the city trying to explore as much as possible of the great things this place has to offer. We got lucky with the weather as it was hot but not overly humid so it was still enjoyable to walk during the day. I`ve also done quite a bit of shopping while being there but my favourite thing was definitely the night food markets where I would happily stuff my face and fingers in some delicious chilli crab.

Sydney & Melbourne Travel Photo Diary

After two very relaxed weeks in Perth we headed over to Melbourne for a few days and then Sydney. Both are two fantastic cities but still quite different. Sydney is a beautiful city with palm trees everywhere and has more of a beachy lifestyle with wonderful weather all around. Melbourne is very European inspired, cool street art, and the weather resembles more to the one in London. It`s quite funny as the people I met in Melbourne say Melbourne is cooler than Sydney and the people I met in Sydney say Sydney is way better than Melbourne. Definitely a bit of a competition between the two which was quite amusing.
