Pa Pa Ya is the second thing I associate with modern Asian cuisine after @asahole . Being a Chinese/Thai cuisine connoisseur I would suggest that if you are unadventurous (don't hmu) and are looking for chilli chicken and chilli potato please stick to the local chinese food van in your area. .
The ambience gives you a rustic vibe but at the same time it's very trendy and upbeat. It kind of reminds me of my 35 year old ex-girlfriend.
Before serving food they give you watermelon (first picture) covered in something foamy, which to @karanjohar 's disappointment is not semen, to clear out your tongue out because only you know the places where it has been. .
Since, we are basic Delhi people, we ordered chicken dimsums and I must say they were nothing like the ones you get from your fav momos walle bhaiya in your local market. The main difference being that they had actual chicken meat in them. The other two dishes we ordered were the shredded salmon bowl and the norimaki sushi. I would suggest you go for them only if you like fish.
All in all it was a great experience and the food and service is as eye catching as I am at the beech. I would give it a strong 8/10. .
St Paul’s Tearoom ☕️
Afternoon Tea is always better with a glass of champagne!

Afternoon Tea at St. Paul’s Tearoom - 6/10
With regards to value, this was a great deal - £20 for Afternoon tea with a glass of sparkling wine (booked through @bookatable ). The service here was also wonderful. However, when it came to the food, it was tasty but nothing really stood out - the selection was quite average and the scones weren’t warm🙁 hence the rating of 6/10 🤷🏽♀️

Wren’s Tearoom in St. Paul’s Cathedral ☕️
I quite frequently pass St Paul’s cathedral but I’ve never been inside nor did I know that there was a Tearoom! So when I saw a deal for Afternoon tea with a glass of fizz for £20 on @bookatable , I had to book it! Stay tuned for posts of the food 😊
Chocolate Crème Brûlée with Pistachio Ice Cream - 8/10
Crazy Bear, Fitzrovia
I’m a massive fan of chocolate and Crème Brûlée, so I was excited to try Crazy Bear’s attempt at combining them. The top was caramelised perfectly, the chocolate custard beneath it was soft and the pistachio ice cream (with chopped pistachio in it) complemented it nicely!

Surf and Turf at Crazy Bear, Fitzrovia - 9/10 🌟
I pre-bought this meal on the @timeoutlondon website for £27, which included:
100g Australian Wagyu Beef, served with truffled pak choi, crispy shallots and teriyaki sauce
A whole lobster tail, wok fried with garlic, black pepper and spring onions.
A side of green papaya salad
A glass of champagne!🥂 An amazing deal which I thought was too good be to true, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the portion size and tasted the mouth-watering food😍

Money saving tip👇🏽
When searching for places to dine, always have a look on Bookatable, Time Out offers or Opentable as they have a massive variety of deals.
For example, I recently dined at Crazy Bear Fitzrovia, and enjoyed Wagyu Beef and Lobster Tail with a glass of champagne for only £27! Without this deal from @timeoutlondon , the meal would have cost me £50 - now you know why I’m smiling 😄

This is something totally different that we've tried @spiceklubdubai It's the coconut water with rose caviar and the mango on the rocks. Out of the two we loved the latter as it had rich mango pulp poured over crushed ice and is perfect for a warm day. Both of them followed the molecular gastronomic theory and is brilliantly picturesque. (Tip- these two can be used as drinks) alongside your meals.
Hurray for SpiceKlubs creativity !
I know you've been missing your favorite #foodvblogger (lol) but it's hard to maintain a food blog when you don't eat out so much. It would've been so much easier if your girlfriend qualified as food. .
My recent visit to The Sky High in Ansal Plaza is yet another example of how spending more money does not guarantee an elevated experience. It is kinda like the same concept of how you could spend a lot of money on plastic surgery but still look ugly. The ambience of the place leads you to draw parallels between the overcompensating nature of your boyfriend and the restaurant as the services provided are unsatisfactory and disappointing. Make sure that you carry flashlights just in case there is an outage of electricity because the place doesn't have a power back up unless ofcourse you're a freak and like to get it in the wrong places (hmu). .
The menu is very average and the dishes in it are very hard to get wrong but they somehow managed to do so. I, however, being a food blogger knew what would be the one dish that would actually stand out and it was the chicken crossaint sandwich. I must say the dish tastes as appealing as it seems. The sandwich was so loaded that comparing it with a pornstar's vagina would be a disgrace to the sandwich. The coleslaw brings same freshness to the dish that I bring to your Instagram feed. I would rate the sandwich a strong 9/10. .
The service, however, was such a big disappointment that even Rahul Gandhi doesn't seem as big of a disappointment in retrospect. I would give the restaurant a 6/10 only because they have a very pretty rooftop.
Yum Bun at Street Feast Giant Robot, Canary Wharf
I’m a massive fan of steamed buns, so I was excited when I saw the Yum Bum stall at Giant Robot. Priced at £4 for 1 bun and £7.50 for 2 buns, I decided to get 2:
Pork belly, cucumber, spring onions, hoisin sauce
Crispy tofu, black bean mayo, garlic choy sun, chilli pickles
Yum Bun didn’t disappoint because they were both really yummy 😋
Chai Ki - Restaurant, Canary Wharf🏙
Butter Chicken - 9/10
This butter chicken was absolutely delicious! Cooked exactly how I like it - creamy and full of flavour 😍 the only reason I didn’t give it a 10/10 is because the portion size is quite small considering the price of the dish (£15.50)
The appetizer plate @buffaloemirates filled us heavily we didn't have to much space left for the main course haha. So we opted for their special traditional wings sided with some fries and bleu cheese! We used the garlic Parmesan as our flavor and med-hot sauce as our spice. I wouldn't be too enthusiastic about this dish as it wasn't as good as we'd expected especially because it felt as though there was an excess amount in vinegar added into the marination. On the brighter side, the chicken wings were cooked to so much perfection that you could literally feel the softness and juiciness out of the tenders! Would definitely recommend the mild sauce if you're not too much into spice. #foodworldreview .
