Spent this morning with my sister enjoying the sunshine at Fields cafe on Clapham Common. Their ghetto omelette is killer, not to mention their slushies and Gen Mai cha soft serve with pickled cherries and rice – definitely photo worthy and weirdly delicious.

My sister and I managed to fit in a breakfast date last weekend at Tart London’s pop up in Queens Gate. Tart specialise in on-site cooking for fashion and film shoots and we were pretty pleased to snag a table before they close this weekend. We really enjoyed their food, especially the Indian scrambled eggs which were out of this world. We really hope they find a permanent spot so we can come a’brunchin.
Also really excited by possible book prospects – need that egg recipe.

We’d seen flashes of Superkilen in Copenhagen guides, but had never ventured into Nørrebro on any of our previous visits – so this time, it was top of our “To Do” list. We did a tour of all the main installations (great for photo ops) on a sunny Saturday morning and then moved on to the other important tasks, namely eating.
We had lunch at Cafe Auto – we’d heard good things and it was well placed. We sat outside, and I had the Grækeren salad (gettin’ myself ready for a trip to Greece next week!). We wandered past lots more eateries that we made a note to explore in this area on future visits – including GRØD, Relæ and the Nordisk Brødhus.
The rest of our trip was spent eating our way across the Meatpacking District, an essential area to visit whilst in CPH. We enjoyed dinner at Kødbyens Fiskebar, which had (by the Meatpacking’s standards) an upmarket, sophisticated vibe – then headed across the street to the newly opened Warpigs Brewpub, the newest Mikkeller Bar venture specialising in beer and BBQ. Think thrash metal and seriously tasty ribs and you’ve got the Warpigs vibe down.

I’ve been dying to go to Spring Restaurant at Somerset House for some time now and I finally went for my 23rd birthday last week. It was the most beautiful birthday setting. The interiors made me swoon, particularly the porcelain wall installation by artist Valeria Nascimento.
It was also a welcome chance to dress up – accessorised with my new scarf from & Other Stories that I’m obsessed with. Wearing H & M top, & Other Stories scarf and Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Hepburn Honey.
I have to mention that the food was delicious too – I ate far too much, as per.
I’m older but definitely not wiser.

The kind of breakfasts that dreams are made of, well in my opinion anyway.
Lucky Charms for the win, every time.

Pancake day = sugar overload this year.
This pancake day I went for Donna Hay’s Buttermilk pancakes which were definitely a winner. Got a little over excited with the pancake toppings this year. Maple syrup, lemon & sugar, nutella and I also bought a jar of Cutter & Squidge sea salted caramel which is insane on pancakes (or just on its own to be perfectly honest). Happy pancake flipping.

Heart shaped toast & some Daylesford juice for Valentine’s Day.

On Saturday I went for breakfast at The Magazine Restaurant at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in Hyde Park. Designed by Zaha Hadid in what they call ‘a synthesis of old and new,’ it was quite incredibly crafted, with cool, spaceship-like architecture.
We went early on Saturday, as per my father’s request, so we enjoyed almost-private dining until about 10am, when it started hotting up for breakfast. The food was lovely, and if you are into design, I really recommend it as an interesting eating spot to visit at the weekend – especially with the gallery right next door.

Mama Lan, Brixton Village
On Sunday, my sister and I went into Brixton for lunch. We went on a quest for dumplings – naturally Mama Lan is the place to go, where you can watch mama Lan herself in the back making hand made dumplings right before you. Its like a little slice of Beijing in South London and in our book Mama Lan is the best restaurant in the market – their king prawn and water chestnut dumplings can’t be beaten…They’ve recently extended their menu and now do noodle soups too, much to my sisters excitement.
Wearing: Coat and skirt from &Other Stories, turtleneck from Topshop, Necklace bought in Sweden.

I visited Lassco today and had some brunch at their Brunswick House Cafe.
Eating bacon sandwiches with spicy ketchup set in a crumbling Georgian townhouse, complete with cool cuban vibes. Lassco is totally worth exploring as well if you like yourself some architectural salvage.
