My 18 eats of 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, it’s that time of the year again where I recap my favourite eats over the past 12 months. This year’s line up spans from London to Lisbon to KL. It includes new discoveries in Dublin, Toulouse & Granada – all cities I had the chance to visit for the first time. There’s phenomenal tarts & pastry both old-school and cutting edge… Shrimp Porridge and Curry Mee… Lobster with Watermelon Granita… and a showstopper of a cake from our very own wedding! Here’s my annual round up of those 18 unforgettable eats of 2018 from around the world…
