Trattoria Mercatto, Toronto, Canada ⭐️⭐️

Trattoria Mercatto, Toronto, Canada ⭐️⭐️

After a long day of shopping, my Mom and myself thought Trattoria Mercatto was a convenient spot to have dinner as it is located directly inside the Eaton Centre in Toronto. The 2 level interior of the restaurant is absolutely stunning! I am a sucker for exposed brick walls, concrete floors and extra high ceilings. [...]

The Wild Horses Pub & Eatery, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Wild Horses Pub & Eatery, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Located next to Bell Island Ferry in Portugal Cove, The Wild Horses Pub & Eatery is nothing fancy. The interior reminded me of a basement bar in someone’s house, aka tacky. Their menu consists of classic pub food, burgers, sandwiches, wings, fish and chips etc. Given their name, obviously this was no surprise. The lady [...]

The Salthouse, St.John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Salthouse, St.John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Salthouse is a fairly new restaurant to the Downtown St. John’s area. It opened back in March 2019, my partner and I stumbled across it while looking for a place to have lunch. Come to find out, we had been there a few days after they first opened. We were surprised that we hadn’t [...]

Hilton Paddington, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hilton Paddington, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Conveniently located in the Paddington Station, the Hilton Paddington is a perfect hotel for a one night stop over in London. The Heathrow Express takes away all of the worry and hassle of your transportation back to the airport. The hotel lobby is very old school with the wooden walls, and red carpet, but it [...]

Nipa Thai, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nipa Thai, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Located in the Royal Lancaster London, Nipa Thai delivers extraordinarily high levels of food and service. From the moment you enter the restaurant, the staff greets you with such care and attention. The dining room isn’t overly large, but they made very good use of the space. I loved the dining chairs, they were nice [...]

Mad Bishop and Bear, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mad Bishop and Bear, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️

After checking into our hotel, our first stop was to get some lunch! I find after a flight I’m always insanely hungry, so we stopped into The Mad Bishop & Bear since it was really close. Located in Paddington Station, it was filled with lots of travellers having a quick bite before they catch their [...]

Mainport Hotel, Rotterdam, Netherlands ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mainport Hotel, Rotterdam, Netherlands                      ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Mainport Hotel was probably the most uniquely designed hotel i’ve stayed in to date. The design was modern with Japanesse accents. With many added touches, this hotel was such an interesting experience, and an even better conversation starter! While it’s not walking distance to Rotterdam Central train station, it is a quick tram ride [...]

Olivers, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Olivers, St. John’s, Canada   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After a less than average experience my last time at Olivers (approximately 2 months ago), I decided to give it another chance, and I’m happy I did! After the holiday season, it seems the staff at Oliver’s is back up to their normal high standards of food and service.  Olivers dining room is fairly small, [...]

Mallard Cottage, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mallard Cottage, St. John’s, Canada                       ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mallard cottage is the hidden gem in a tiny fishing community minutes from downtown St. John’s, NL, Canada. Driving by, you wouldn’t think it is a restaurant since it looks like a little cottage. Don’t be fooled by its appearance, Mallard Cottage is one of the highest rated restaurants in St. John’s, and with good [...]
