Señor Ceviche

So I think its safe to say that ceviche is my new fave food at the moment. I know its very “on trend” right now, but that’s not why. I have always been a massive fan of sashimi and ceviche is essentially that, but with some added incredible flavours. So I was incredibly excited to try Señor Ceviche over in Kingly Court for the first time.

A beach has come to London. No I’m not going crazy, and yes it is a real beach….it just doesn’t have any water at the end of it sadly. But what it does have is its own night club! Brixton Beach Boulevard has arrived.

Best dumpling in Brixton

You may remember my post a little while back about Pop Brixton, that at the time had just opened. Well, as you can image, a year on and the place is now in full swing and somewhere that Ed and I go to often, due to it’s easy of location and the variety of food it has to offer. It’s perfect if you both fancy something different for dinner or it’s just a lovely sunny day.

One place in Pop that, without a doubt, I go to every time we are there is Koi Ramen Bar.

Thaikhun Guildford

Thai food is probably my fave food, if not fave then 100% top 3, so you can image my excitement when I was invited to the launch of a new Thai restaurant last week out in Guildford.

Thaikhun, which is part of the Thai Leisure Group, currently has 6 different restaurants all over the country and have finally opened a 7th down south in Guildford! Based in the middle of Friary Street it couldn’t be in a better location if it tried, sandwiched between the high street and the Friary Centre it’s the perfect spot pre, post or mid shopping trip!

Pop Brixton

Apologies for my disappearance this week. Those of you that follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, why not!?) will know i was sunning myself in Portugal with the boy and his family. But i’m back now so things should resume as normal, or at least that’s the idea!

So back in dreary London, after a rather heavy weekend of drinking, hearing about Pop Brixton’s soft launch weekend sounded like the perfect hangover cure. Plus its super close to Ed’s flat, so we took a wonder down to see exactly what was going on with all those shipping containers!

Ho Chi Min city

After a very long and hot bus journey (due to the air con breaking down every two mins) we arrived in ho chi min just as it started to rain! Sol, Alex, charlie and I all went in search of a hotel that sol and Alex’s friends were already staying in. However when we got there the receptionist was very rude and unhelpful so we decided to look elsewhere. The boys did a quick scout around and managed to find a really nice place just across from where we were, what made it even better was that Alex managed to barter them right down so we got an amazing deal!

That evening sol, Alex charlie and I all went for dinner at a placed called five oyster that sol had found on trip advisor. The food was really good and we all had a lovely meal. When we had finished eating we went to meet sol and Alex’s friends who they had been travelling with before Vietnam. We had a few drinks out on the road before deciding to go and look for more of a bar type place to carry on in. As we were strolling up the road I spotted James, who we originally met at the farm stay, walking the other way. We had a quick chat and he recommended a good bar for us to try down the road that had free darts and pool. James had a super early flight to catch the next morning so he only stayed for one drink, but it was still nice to catch up with him. We stayed and played a few games of pool before calling it a night as we were shattered from the bus.

The next day we all met up again and had a surprisingly good breakfast across the road before heading to the war museum. There was loads of information about all different aspects of the war and was all very interesting despite how one sided it was. We were there for most the afternoon before one of the boys suggested an Adidas and puma outlet. It wasn’t too far away so we strolled over, only to discover it wasn’t much of an outlet at all, just a regular shop! We were in there for all of 2mins before heading back in the direction of our hotel. We were all a bit peckish so we stopped off at a bakery that James had recommended called ABC bakery. Later that night we were all supposed to go for dinner but Alex wasn’t feeling too great so it was just charlie, sol and I. We decided to try another place James had recommended as so far his recommendations had been fantastic!! It was a little street vender who did pork and rice for less then £1, an it was AMAZING!! However her portions were a little small so we went to get some spring rolls after which sadly were very disappointing in comparison!

The next day we had a flight booked back to Bangkok at about 5ish so as we didn’t have a full day and it was pouring with rain we decided to go to an indoor market with sol and Alex. It was a very sweet market that had loads of trinkey thing so u managed to get a couple of presents for people. Before we knew it it was time to go, so we said our goodbyes to sol and Alex and then set off for the airport, this time with tones of time to spare!!

Charlie and I loved Vietnam, we had the most amazing time and anyone who is heading that way should definitely make it a priority!
