Here in Bermuda, we've been fortunate as we've enjoyed some incredible summer weather well into October, but we all know that at some point, our luck will run out. That means that instead of congregating on a sunny patio to enjoy a weekly happy hour, we'll be looking for indoor spots to enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail (and of course a bite to eat) over the course of the cooler months. As it turns out, one of the most eclectic and engaging spaces on Front Street (if not the whole island) is a step ahead of our impending winter "what to do?" dilemma, with a new event to look forward to on a regular basis: Wednesday Wine Tastings at Urban Cottage.
When it comes to sweet treats in the east, only one name comes to mind: Sweet SAAK Bakery. Infamous islandwide for their cinnamon buns, known in various circles for a delightful carrot cake and those in the know will brag about their specialty cakes. On a weekly basis, countless Sweet SAAK devotees look for any excuse to get to St George’s for Cinnamon Bun Wednesdays; they are creating a following for their Friday Pizza Nights, and if you follow them on Instagram (start now), you’ll be aware of their ‘traditional’ Sunday breakfasts that have a growing legion of fans…now including Team #biteofbermuda.
Overcome by the constant stream of images on our phones, we ventured to St George’s on a Sunday morning to experience the Sweet SAAK breakfast for ourselves. If you are a fan of breakfast, it is strongly suggested that you do the same.
If you follow us on Instagram (and if you don't, you really should), you would know that one of us is currently spending some time in the spectacular City of London, a city which many of you are likely quite familiar with. London is a popular stop for Bermuda residents for school, work or vacations, and we thought it would be fun to showcase some of the foodie finds around a city that truly encompasses cultures and cuisines from all over the world. Seriously...London has it all. Feel a hankering for Malaysian food? Done. Craving a curry? There's a whole street for that. Want a cronut? Yup, those have made it across the pond as well (they are everywhere). Whatever you fancy, London can deliver. So when what you fancy is a good old-fashioned food market, London has that more than covered too, with the wonderfully historic Borough Market.
