WHAT A GIRL EATS: PAVILLON IN ZURICH

Like many foodies, a significant part of travelling is about the food.

WHAT A GIRL EATS: BOB BOB RICARD

I’ve never met a true Londoner that’s never heard of Bob Bob Ricard. In fact, anyone that’s ever used Instagram or Pinterest should be vaguely acquainted with it.

WHAT A GIRL EATS: TEMPER COVENT GARDEN

My favourite restaurant in London and by extension in the whole world, is temper Soho. I don’t think I’ve ever visited the same restaurant so many times out of choice. Steadily since my first review, two other branches have opened, a curry- focused restaurant in the City and another just walking distance from the first site specialising in social media’s favourite…
