This restaurant has closed and is now owned by Evelyn’s Cafe and Bar.
Try Thai is located within Manchester’s China Town on Faulkner Street. There is a separate bar area with its own entrance, but the actual restaurant is up a few flights of stairs. Ryo has been a long fan of their set lunch menu, which offers decent food at a reasonable price, so this is a semi-regular place for us. Elsa and Ryo arrived in Manchester on a sunny Saturday and felt like having something refreshing instead of the originally planned burgers. We decided on going to Try Thai again.
Elsa and Ryo spent 4 and a half days in Paris and had many food adventures. This one is focused on a Basque place we found.
Ryo was researching for places that offer brunch in Paris and discovered that brunch buffets were a thing. Curious as to what exactly this entails, Elsa and Ryo chose a place to visit locally after a very sunny walk on the Coulée verte René-Dumont (Promenade plantée), an elevated green walkway on an old railway line. I highly recommend the walkway as a brilliant place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Paris!

Elsa, Ryo and Elsa’s sister were sightseeing in Paris during the day when they got hungry and tried to look for a place to eat lunch in. Walking through the Marais area, this Lebanese restaurant caught our eyes (and noses) so we decided to try it out.
This is a new branch of Al Dabké in the Marais district. Their main restaurant is in the suburb of Paris, Ivry-sur-Seine.
Elsa and Ryo spent 4 and a half days in Paris and had many food adventures. This one is focused on the many bakeries and patisseries we visited.
Aux Délices de Paris – our ‘Local’ Bakery
Elsa, Ryo and Elsa’s sister arrived in Paris and were lucky to find this bakery on their first evening arriving in Paris! The bakery was fairly close to where they were staying and in total they went three times, each time loaded with treats which lasted at least a couple of days and of course on the day they were flying back to the UK, they bought goodies for family/friends.
I heard about Sakana on twitter and was waiting for a good opportunity to try it out. When they announced that they were offering a Pan Asian Afternoon Tea, I jumped at the opportunity to try it out. It was only when I tried to book a table online that I discovered there was a Living Social deal for it: 2 people for £19 or 4 people for £38.
Thus armed with the voucher, we arrive at Sakana with 2 others.
It’s worth noting that every place changes what they put into their Afternoon Tea, and Sakana is no different. Your experience may differ from ours.
