The New York Bagel: How, What, Where, Why

When you sit down to eat your bagel, it’s like unwrapping a tiny present excessively hidden under many layers. You firstly open a large plastic bag, then remove a second smaller paper bag. Inside the paper bag you’ll find a bagel, but it’s usually double wrapped. Finally, it’s there, so much satisfaction fighting through all…

America’s Finest – Lunch at Eleven Madison Park

Expectations can certainly be a killer. I chose to turn a blind eye and not run wild on the Internet to eliminate any potential spoilage. This seemed like a reasonable thing to do at the time, however knowing this restaurant is rated 5th best in the world creates expectations in itself. After a stressful few days…

6 Colombian foods you need to try!

1. Coffee Often regarded as some of the highest quality coffee in the world, this one is a no brainer. And there are so many good places to get it. We found the area of ‘Zona G’ (‘G’ standing for gastronomica) in Bogota to have a really cool café vibe where you can sample some…

They wanted my sister and I to have an appreciation of all the different things that exist in this world – people, cultures, languages, landscapes, customs and food. When we were old enough to drive,…

CHIRIMOYA – Exotic Andean Fruit

Wow. This thing is delicious. I wasn’t expecting much, especially as my patience for fruits with multiple small seeds wears thin at the best of times. But when I opened it up and saw the creamy white flesh inside, I knew it was going to be a winner. Move over mango – I’ve found my…

The Empanada Diaries

Empanadas. The One Thing in South America that will never let you down (unless it gives you the shits). It’s no surprise that South America can be a little dodgy at times, but the trusty empanada doesn’t fit this category. In fact, it can make the unwanted moments of travel a whole lot better (it…
