Dinner @ Cantina, Prague

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

I was introduced to Cantina when I was in Prague during October mid-term break last year. I had forgotten about the experience until in Budapest when I was talking to the Irish lads I was sharing a dorm room with. They were heading off to Prague when I was heading back to London and I remembered the best Mexican meal I had ever had and managed to locate it for them while realising along the way that it had not made it onto the blog.

I went to Prague with a now ex-boyfriend last October, whom had spent many summers in the city and knew some of the best places to eat. When we arrived in town I was offered a choice of Chinese or Mexican, as we were to have a Czech meal the following night. I went for Mexican partly out of curiosity as it was sold to…

Food and Drink tour of Warsaw, Poland

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

I had previously been on a Free Walking Tour in Krakow with the same group the day before for their Old Town walking tour and loved it so much that I made sure to collect a flyer for the Free Walking Tours they offered in Warsaw. The one tour that I knew I had to do while in Poland was the food and drink tour as being a food blogger I would be a fool to miss out on being shown some of the local delicacies and eateries while in town. I was unable to do the tour in Krakow as I was leaving the same afternoon it was running but was in Warsaw while they were running it so I went along to that one instead. The tour runs on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday days at 3pm and begins at the Charles De Gaulle statue at the Charles…

Dinner @ Il Calzone, Krakow

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

After meeting K while touring Auschwitz we ended up going out for dinner together when back in Krakow as we we’re now staying at the same hostel. We settled on Il Calzone for a restaurant as K did not want anything spicy and I was looking for something close to our hostel and this was just around the block. The restaurant is well sign posted on the street but is actually located off the street a little in a courtyard but very easy to find.

K and I decided to split a bottle of wine while there. K requested sweet over dry and looking over the menu there was only one wine that was listed as semi-sweet. That wine was a Gewürztraminer for 88PLN. The wine was more sweet than semi-sweet to my taste but I still enjoyed it and it went down a little too easily with the level…

Dinner @ Polakowski, Krakow

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

A and I decided to try some Polish food for dinner the night after our big walking expedition across Krakow, you can read about what we got up to that day in this blog post here. After speaking with the guy manning the desk at the hostel we set off to try Polakowski which he recommended highly. Polakowski is located in the Old Town of Krakow near the HolyTrinity Church, which was about a 5 minute walk from the hostel.

The restaurant is set up in a self-service style meaning you line up to place your order and return to the serving area when your number is called if part of your meal needed to be cooked. The restaurant was quite busy when we turned up at 8pm and the poor girl behind the counter was the only one working the front part of the restaurant meaning she was constantly…

Lunch @ Hippopotamus, Budapest Airport

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

While waiting for my flight back to London at Budapest airport I had a late lunch at Hippopotamus. I picked Hippopotamus to dine at partly because they were advertising a bacon and pineapple burger and party because I saw tables located next to power points and wanted to charge my phone again which had not fully charged at the hostel.

As I had been unable to order a cocktail with dinner the night before I went for a cocktail now and ordered a sec on the beach from their menu. Normally I abstain from alcohol when travelling by air so that I do not become dehydrated but after such a relaxing trip I figured one drink was a good way to finish the trip off. The cocktail was well mixed and the alcohol was balanced with all the other flavours, just how I like my cocktails. The presentation was…

Room Service @ Danubius Gellért Hotel, Budapest

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

When I arrived at the Danubius Gellért Hotel after settling into my hotel room I check out the restaurants looking for something to splurge myself with. What I found instead however was that I had checked in on a Monday night when all their restaurants were closed. Realising that fact and hearing the torrential rainfall outside the window of my hotel room I decided to treat to something I had never had before, room service.


Knowing that I was not going to leave the room for the evening I figured I would treat myself. I was quite hungry after my flight earlier that day meaning that I did not get the chance to grab a bite to eat over lunchtime making me quite famished by that later afternoon. I therefore ordered one of the mains off the room service menu and went for the ‘Chicken breast coated in cornflakes…

Dinner @ Centre Food Point Store, London

Originally posted on Travel and Teach:

Before leaving London for my Balkan’s adventure I caught up with my friend C for dinner. Being Korean and me not remembering having tried Korean food before C suggested we check out a Korean restaurant below the Centre Point Food Store which is a store that stocks Korean and Japanese food.

I ordered a traditional dish called bibimbap which consisted of a fried egg, some slices of stir-fried beef, rice and some vegetables. I was then given a squeeze bottle of a spicy sauce with which I had to mix into the dish and then eat all together. To go with my dish I also tried a traditional rice based drink. The drink came in a can and was a combination of a slightly thicker than usual water and floating rice. The drink had a sweet flavour and a taste that was a combination of rice and a hint of cinnamon…
