We were at the cheese festival at the Prahan market and I needed a sugar hit so we walked willingly (well I forced Mr D…) to Burch and Purchese since I haven’t been yet.
Mr D was a touch peckish and needed something to eat. I suggested the souva at Jimmy Grants and he said it was GINORMOUS and decided to go for the kiddies one instead (KIDS??? WHAT??!!).
Whilst shopping at Emporium, I got a bit peckish and walked around the food court and decided to try out Thr1ve. The menu caught my eye with all the healthy and tasty food so I lined up.
Hung Phat use to be called Ha Long and is also now under new management. This is the gang’s usual spot for when we wanted to catch up over cheap food and welcome to stay as long as we like. However, this wasn’t the case when we went here on a saturday night. It was only 8PM and it was empty, hardly any customers and we got a table for 5 immediately. I ordered wonton soup with egg noodles (LOVE THEM WONTONS) and it was a bit below average.

It was our last night in Rome which meant our last night of our amazing European holiday and I was getting a little sad with the quality of food I was encountering. Mr D and I both agreed that we’re going to go away from the main roads and straight into the alley ways (recommend going into alleyway with another person…not alone haha). After what seemed like HOURS of walking, we stumbled across this quaint and adorable place where the signage was of a robin in a tux (HOW ADORABLE IS THAT?) and they only had an italian menu. This place gave me a good feeling so in we went.
Whilst in Italy, Mr D and I had been having A LOT of gelato (when I say a lot, I mean literally 3 times a day!) and we stumbled across Wonderful Ice Cream while shopping on the main road.
It was dinner time and Mr D and I promised ourselves we would stray from the main street but we were so tired we just dropped into the first place we saw – La Cucina Nazionale. Now, we were greeted warmly and that was about the service we got (step up your game Rome!). The interior was lovely and there was such a happy vibe and it cheered me up a bit.
While wondering around I got peckish seeing as it was lunch time, I needed to eat and PRONTO. We found a bar around the corner from our hotel and it wasn’t really friendly or inviting but I needed my food fix.
For our last night in Florence I felt much better so we decided to venture into alleyways and steer away from the tourist main roads. I’m so glad we chose to do that because BAM we ran into La Grotta Guelfa and sure, it looks like every other pizza joint but I was too tired to go any further so in we went.
We just had dinner and I needed dessert pronto. We fought through the wind and rain and ended up at Venchi because…wait for it….THEY HAVE A CHOCOLATE WATERFALL WALL (WHAT???!!)!!
