    The Best Hotel Breakfasts In The World (So Far)

    Like the brunch queen I am, I couldn’t help myself and put together a list of the best hotel breakfasts we have enjoyed so far around the world – they say “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper” and I can’t help but agree.

    15 of the Best London Brunches for Under £15

    It is well-documented that Kiwis are a little obsessed with a crazy little thing called brunch. Some might almost accuse us of an almost cultish obsession with the in-between meal worshipped mainly on the weekends at home and here in London.

    A beautiful brunch at Hide Restaurant London

    Ukiyo Brunch Review | Aqua Kyoto

    It doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside,  especially when you’re cozily tucked away from the rain and enjoying a brunch feast. This weekend in particular a few of us gathered at Aqua Kyoto to try their newest brunch offering; 

    Luxury Brunch Japanese Aqua Kyoto Adventures of a London Kiwi

    Disclaimer: We were invited guests of Aqua Kyoto but my (very many) thoughts are only ever mine – repeat visits on my own dime time and time again attest to simply how much I enjoy their cuisine.

    The Japanese say, “If the flower is to be beautiful, it must be cultivated.” (Lester Cole) So it is at Aqua Kyoto – the chefs are ever innovating, creating and crafting beautiful dishes that are almost too beautiful to eat.
