Photo of the week – Eating ice cream in Split

My apologies for the lack of posts during the past week. I have been too busy enjoying myself on my trip. This week's photo is an ice cream cone that I am about to enjoy.

The flavour is called Jaffa. (Chocolate & Orange) and it tasted delicious.

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.

Photo of the Week (2) – Birmingham Food Fair

This is a first, I am posting another photo of the week. This photo is of the Food Fair that is taking place in Birmingham.

The fair is being held in Victoria Square in the centre of the city. It began on Wednesday and will run until Monday 26 August. There are plenty of stores offering food from the UK and around the world. There is also a German beer tent. Sadly. I am working this weekend so the earliest I will be able to make it will be next weekend. Hopefully, I will report back to you.

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.

Frici Papa Kifozdeje, Budapest

When I was in Budapest I was determined to go and eat some authentic Hungarian cuisine. The Wombats hostel recommended to try Frici Papa Kifozdeje.

It took about fifteen minutes to walk to the restaurant from the hostel. We were welcomed by a good atmosphere, there were plenty of people already there. This is always a good sign. None decided to have a starter and went straight for the main course. Two of the party chose to order Chicken breast paprikash. Another ordered Mushroomgulash. I decided to order Beefgulash with red wine and noodles. It tasted delicious and costing 479ft I thought it to be excellent value too.

My Excellent Meal
 

We shared a pudding. It was called Dumps with poppy seed. I could only describe it as a sweet dumplings literally covered in poppy seeds. Very sweet and I could taste poppy seeds for a couple of hours afterwards.

Overall, I enjoyed my visit to Frici Papa Kifozdeje. It is a good place to go and eat authentic cuisine at a good price. I will definitely visit again the next time I am in Budapest.

Photo of the Week – Ice Cream

Summer is coming and the sun has been shining in the UK. To celebrate, this weeks photo is off a summer treat – ice cream cone.

Yummy

It is one of the tastes of summer. This cone was strawberry and lime. However, ice cream is not just for summer. It tastes good in winter.

Chocolate & Caramel

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and enjoy.

Cheese Rolling

Whenever I mention that I am from the UK I am usually end up discussing football and the bad weather. However, the next popular question I am asked is about cheese rolling.

The Cheese Rolling Contest takes place at Cooper's Hill in Gloucestershire. It is held on the last Monday in May which is a public holiday in the UK.

Copper's Hill

Starting at midday there are five downhill races including an all women's race. A Double Gloucester cheese is rolled down the hill while the competitors chase after it.

Chasing the cheese

As you can see from the photo there is a good chance that competitors get injured in the pursuit of the cheese. The first person down the hill wins the cheese.

The Prize

This event could only happen in the UK. Would I take part? No way, I do not like cheese.

Photo of the Week – Lunch in Budapest

There is nothing better to do after a walking tour than eat some good food in a local restaurant. This was certainly the case in Budapest.

Like the idiot I am I have forgotten the name of the restaurant. All I can tell you is that it is on the top of Castle Hill in Buda. The meal itself was delicious. It consisted of pork, potatoes and red cabbage and washed down with a bottle of the local brew. Even better it was spent with good company with some of the people from the walk.

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
