My Old Dutch Pancake Restaurant Kensington London

If you’re craving pancakes then a pancake at one of the branches of My Old Dutch restaurant in London will definitely fulfill your appetite. My Old Dutch serves gigantic Dutch pancakes both savoury and sweet as well as salads and Dutch starters and desserts. They have a wide selection of different types of pancakes to choose from or you can make your own from a choice of different toppings. I usually get a savoury pancake with bacon, cheese and pineapple with a sweet pancake for dessert if I can manage to fit one in! My Old Dutch’s Poffertjes (mini fluffy pancakes) are great to have at tea time served with sugar and butter and My Old Dutch also now serves breakfast pancakes daily before 1pm.

Mildreds Vegetarian Restaurant Soho London

Posted on January 23rd, 2012 in Good Eats by Stephanie

I’m not a big meat eater and enjoy going to vegetarian restaurants which is quite often since quite a few of my friends are vegetarian. Mildreds is a vegetarian restaurant in Soho that I tried recently, located on Lexington Street in Soho. They have a small but nice selection of internationally inspired vegetarian starters, mains, sides and puddings as well as organic smoothies, juices and teas. The restaurant is a little cramped but the atmosphere is lively and informal and the food is good value for money.

For dinner I ordered a burger with relish, red onion, rocket and tomato accompanied with sweet potato fries and a carrot juice to wash it all down with. The friend that I dined with got the burrito filled with black turtle beans, corn and red pepper topped with tomato lime salsa, guacamole, smoked cheddar and sour cream, which was equally gratifying.

Detox With Green Tea

Posted on January 16th, 2012 in Freebies,Green Tea London,Random Thoughts by Stephanie

Matcha Green Tea

As it’s the start of a new year I’ve been doing all the usual things such as eating more healthily, trying to stick to my New Year’s resolutions and I even joined a gym and am now completely hooked on Les Mills Body Attack classes! :) One thing that I’ve also been doing and hope to continue (fingers crossed) is replacing all coffee breaks and my daily English breakfast tea with green tea. Green tea is great for detoxing and has more antioxidants than black teas so is great for removing toxins from the body whilst protecting the immune system and preventing disease. It also helps reduce bad cholesterol present in the body and boosts your metabolism therefore aiding in weight loss!

There are many different types of green tea both pure and flavoured with Japanese matcha green tea being the healthiest. Matcha is a powdered green tea made from ground tea leaves that delivers even more health benefits than brewed tea since you are consuming the nutritional benefit of the entire leaf. It has been shown to even delay premature aging!

Green tea is delicious and refreshing and if you haven’t tried it before you can get 2 free samples from Twinings and try Twinings new green teas. They also have an online tea shop so that you can buy green tea online!
