Çılbır is a delicious Turkish eggs dish, which is super easy to make. It’s a spicy dish yet with a cool aspect due to the yoghurt; perfect for summer. There are a few ways to make this dish- this is my style of making them!

Traveling around Europe is a good shout as you can usually find cheap deals for short breaks. There are so many different city’s and environments to see; if you’re based in the UK like me then you’re lucky we have easy access (for now #ScrewBrexit).
This is my little travel guide to Barcelona. We only went for 4D3N so definitely didn’t experience everything, but this will give you a good summary inshaAllah!
I love finding out which of the best non-halal joints actually do serve halal food. When I found out honest burgers have 2 halal sites (their Tooting & Baker Street branches) I was so eager to try it, especially as I know how popular this joint is to non-Muslims. These halal branches of honest burgers serve halal chicken only (no halal beef), and it’s all handled & cooked separately. All their sides are also gluten free and any of their burgers can be made to be gluten free too!
Mazaya is a Lebanese restaurant in the heart of Knightsbridge. Situated on the first floor, this restaurant has amazing views of the streets below! Their menu is simple, and their food was delicious. Having been put off Lebanese food because of a few bad places, this restaurant changed my mind again!
Check out their instagram for any offers and to drool over their pics!
Chi Kitchen is a fancy pan-asian restaurant on the ground floor of Debenhams, Oxford Street. If you guys know me, you know that my preference is not for pan- asian food; however I loved the food here and I will definitely be coming back!
The second branch of the infamous Drunch opened in Regent’s Park, and serves halal dishes, from burgers to Italian burrata. We loved the atmosphere & decor of the place, as well as the fine dining experience. This branch is more spacious than the other, and has a different menu (however both still have their famous Drunch Cheesecake!).
