Be Happy at Cafe Grumpy, Chelsea

Morning coffee should always be as good as Cafe Grumpy. With their fairy lights around the door and the super cute benches outside. It’s enough to make you want to stay there all day. And laptops aren’t allowed! An added bonus for this lovely place on West 20th in Chelsea.

Coffee is a serious business here. So go and try some delicious blends and well chill out. Sitting outside on the weekend is a coveted spot.

Eating lunch at the Bouchon Bakery

If you are near Columbus Circle and in need of lunch, head to the Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center for a delicious treat. Either grab a table in the cafe or visit the takeaway window depending on your fancy. And in the summer of course it’s perfect for picnic fare to then head out to the park.

And take your pick from pastries, soup and sandwiches. But always buy a macaroon – they are the best.

THELEwala Indian Food Cart, MacDougal Street, New York

TheleWalaIf you are out in village and fancy a snack then the THELEwala Indian Food Cart is the place to go. THELEwala food in Hindi translates to a home-style delicious hearty meal, and this is exactly what THELEwala do so well. They are famous for their nizami rolls, which are filled with delicious spicy ingredients. One is really enough, but it is so tempting to get two!

My faves are the Chapli roll and the Achari Aloo Tikki roll. And they are only around $4-5 each. Fabulous!

Chill Out with People’s Pops

This summer in New York has all been about the People’s Pops ice pops. Forget about the old fashioned sugary lollys of the past and imagine an ice pop that is made of pure fruit and comes in flavours like apricot lavender, strawberry rhubarb, sour cherry, cantaloupe mint, raspberry basil, strawberry balsamic and peach mint.

Plus they do shave ice too in equally yummy flavours. Found in locations across Manhattan. Roll up roll up!

A Parisian Weekend: Part 4 – Marché des Enfants Rouges

Le Marché des Enfants Rouges

A visit to Paris isn’t complete without eating way too much delicious food. And what better way to do this than exploring a foodie market.

The Marché des Enfants Rouges is a traditional covered food market located in the Marais. This very old market began life in 1615 when it was created to supply food to the new neighbourhood. And to be honest not much has changed.

It’s open from Tuesday to Sunday and filled with food from its residents including a fishmonger, a butcher, a greengrocer, a cheese specialist and a baker.

And the best thing about the market is if you’re hungry you can take advantage of the small restaurants on site, who sell a variety of food including salads, anti-pasti, sushi and the popular Moroccan food from Le Traiteur Marocain. Expect to wait in a queue.

This market has also been made famous by Rachel Khoo and her enthusiasm for cooking Parisian style. In episode 1 of her TV show, she learns the secrets of making the perfect thé à la menthe from the team at Le Traiteur Marocain.
