Schnitzel Please, Frankfurt

Without fail, we're woken up between 6.30 and 7am everyday. It's as though I've set Theo to go off just like an alarm clock. He's a pretty reliable one. Our Saturday mornings are spent at music class. It's a class for babies and young children to sing songs, play instruments and dance around. Very fun but …

Krispy Kreme, Oxford

"Hello! Here's a box of doughnuts for you!" the lady exclaimed as she handed me a box filled with a dozen doughnuts. "What's the catch?" I asked. "It's for free because we're opening a new outlet at Clarendon Centre," she explained with a smile. We came home with a dozen original glazed doughnuts from Krispy …

Zappi’s Bike Cafe, Oxford

Men in leather jackets, riding boots and tattoos are a frequent sight here! Of course not! I'm just kidding. Zappi's has bikes, but more like bicycles. I'm a self-confessed bad cyclist. I reckon I'm doing road users a service by not cycling. However, all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor made Zappi's sound inviting and …

Browns Cafe, Oxford

The cafe is located in the Covered Market which dates back to the 18th century. On its menu, you'll find traditional English breakfast, burgers, omelettes, steaks, jacket potatoes etc , all at reasonable prices. There's no pretentious front to the cafe - ie. fancy interior design, armchairs or useless pieces on display. I know people …

Cake Me Up at Karstadt, Frankfurt

Gone are the days when I can easily pop into any cafe in town. These days places I go to need to be baby-friendly. In another words, there needs to be a baby changing room. On the 5th level of Karstadt is a food court and round the corner is a baby changing toilet. Perfect! …

Main Cafe, Frankfurt

Strategically located along the Main river (near Schweizer Straße), locals flock to Main Cafe whenever the sun's out. You can either sit on the benches or pay a refundable deposit for a deck chair to enjoy every bit of sunshine before winter hits us hard. I've become quite a regular there to meet up with …

K’ties Café, Frankfurt – Part 2

Earlier this year, while it was still dark and gloomy in winter, I visited K'ties Café. I had a delicious French breakfast set while Daniel ordered buttery scrambled eggs with ham and bread (read about our previous experience here). As a reader recommended me their cakes, I made my way back to K'ties on a …

Eis Christina, Frankfurt

Alright, I admit that the song by Vanilla Ice came into my head when I started this post. The place I'll be recommending this weekend is Eis Christina in Nordend, Frankfurt. The ice-cream café was highly recommended by our Birth Preparation Instructor who claimed that they sell THE BEST ice-cream in Frankfurt. As it was …

Amélie’s Wohnzimmer Café, Frankfurt

Amélie's Wohnzimmer is a cosy café located near Lokalbahnhof in Sachsenhausen, Frankfurt. Bookshelves of second-hand German books line the perimeter of the room which gives patrons the impression of a reading room cum café. We met up with a couple of friends for afternoon tea and cakes on a beautiful Sunday and were lucky to …

K’tie’s Café Frankfurt

K'tie's is a French cafe located in Sachsenhausen, Frankfurt. I've been wanting to visit it as I've read extremely positive reviews of it online and apparently they make their own cakes and quiche! Unlike the UK, regular supermarkets do not sell quiche here. Even if they do, it's only Quiche Lorraine or Onion quiche; very …

36 Grad Cafe, Bar & Restaurant, Frankfurt

Winter has been kind to us thus far. Nothing below 0 degrees centigrade and no snow. Yay!!! I can put up with temperatures between 0-10 degrees Cels for the next couple of months till Spring arrives. Hope I'm not going to jinx the weather! Since it has been pretty mild compared to last year and …

Schiffer Cafe, Frankfurt

Hmmm...cultural difference has never struck me so hard. I don't even know how or where to begin. Well, I've been monitoring my iron levels the past 6 months or so and I'm glad to find out that it's getting better so I no longer have to take those metallic tasting pills on a daily basis. …

Cafe Brücke, Frankfurt

Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying the summer thus far (if you're supposed to be getting one) because we've been quite lucky in Frankfurt. Temperatures have been soaring above 30 degrees Celsius and it reminds me so much of Singapore. Ok, the humidity isn't as bad in Frankfurt so that's great. I used to love winters …

Meral’s Imbiss, Frankfurt

Hello again everybody! People were asking why I haven't been blogging for a long, long time and for those who don't live in Frankfurt, I guess they started to wonder if I'm even alive. Please be assured this is me actually blogging away and not some part-time writer that Daniel employed so he could hide …

Monday treats @ Iimori, Frankfurt

Do you ever realise that on Sunday evenings people tend to publicise on Facebook how much they dread Mondays? Yes, the Monday Blues sufferers. I reckon it's also possible to suffer from Monday Blues even when you don't work on Mondays. Well, at least I think I do or perhaps I'm just coming up with …
