Why Haven’t You Been to Bento Box Yet?

Driving around Barbados these days is weird since we have been spending so much time indoors, it is hard to tell if all the places open now are new or if they just weren’t noticeable before. One new place everyone should be flocking to is, Bento Box in Warrens. It is a peculiar situation because…

A Review of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival 2019.

In 2018 I was very vocal about not going to The Barbados Food and Rum Festival (you can read that article here). As a result, I made a serious effort to attend the 2019 Food and Rum Festival. I went to almost every night. The only night I missed was the ‘Gourmet Safari’ which is…

Why Breakfast Parties Are The Worst.

There’s a new wave of different partying experiences; silent parties, cooler fetes, even party buses, but by far the worst trend right now is the breakfast party. I’m aware that for some people breakfast parties are a god-send, the perfect antidote to a boring party scene and fits into their schedule perfectly. That’s great and…

Current State Of Affairs, Part 2

Almost a year ago I wrote the first ‘Current State Of Affairs‘. After a year of blogging, a lot of improvements have been made but for the most part not that much has changed. There are so many aspects to blogging that it still feels incredibly overwhelming. Much of what I do here is very…

What Happens When Condescension Is The Secret Ingredient.

I recently decided to carry a friend to a beach bar, lets call it ‘La Bacane’, for some birthday drinks and possibly a bite to eat. When we got there, the place was scantily occupied by other patrons, which we assumed was due to the questionable weather we were having. Nonetheless, at that moment the…

Am I Cool Enough to Eat at Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza?

Ever walk into a place and immediately think, maybe I’m not cool enough to be here? That was what it was like walking into Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza. It’s loud, it’s packed and everyone is laughing. Daunting as fuck, but don’t let that stop you. I was told Anthony’s Pizza is the best pizza in…

Cafe Mitra, Restaurant and Bar for Date Night in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Kathmandu isn’t generally thought of as a romantic spot in comparison to Venice, Hawaii ¬†or France however, I don’t think anyone gave Cafe Mitra that memo. I went there for a quiet dinner and it felt like I fell into a first date in a romantic comedy, although I was by myself. The setting was…
