Las Mimosas – A Taste of The Real Ibiza

Las Mimosas -Alexandra Rose Creative

Las Mimosas is a hotel that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to find in The Bay of San Antonio. Tucked away up a quiet dust track, the luxurious-yet-understated boutique suites provide a relaxing break surrounded by nature.

The hotel only opened in June this year and offers a stunning Ibicencan styled living space consisting of 17 suite rooms, all with their own bathroom. The junior suite includes a comfortable sofa bed, for larger families or groups. Continue reading “Las Mimosas – A Taste of The Real Ibiza”

Wi-Ki-Woo San Antonio Ibiza

San Antonio – A sad decline or ‘out with the old and in with the new’?

A bustling West End Ibiza of years gone by

San Antonio was once known for its fun-loving, young tourist crowd and 24 hour excitement. With a buzzing atmosphere cheap drinks, it was the place for youngsters to get away from the norm and enjoy a cheap break in the sun.

This year has seen some of the biggest changes to the Island from ascendant authority figures which have caused a sharp decline in tourism and a colossal debate between business owners, workers and residents on social media.

5 ways to cure your Ibiza hangover productively

The two words ‘Party’ and ‘Ibiza’ blend blissfully together, kind of like like Strawberries and Cream.

Hangovers however go together like Chalk and Cheese. And nobody likes that.

At home we sit in bed the next day (or 3 if you’re over a certain age like myself) and think about our life choices and how we really shouldn’t have had that 7th Tequila shot, or danced on the table. But what do you do when you’re on holiday? Continue reading “5 ways to cure your Ibiza hangover productively”

Lockside Camden – Tex Mex Heaven

We love Camden. It’s trendy, funky and full of the weird and wonderful.

It has changed drastically over the last two decades. Pop up street food stalls and huts have become the staple of the Lock, with a range of cuisines available from all over the world.

We’re big fans of TexMex food. We like the fusion between Mexico & America with all of their spices, sauces and flavours.

It’s one of our favourites!

Lockside Camden is a well established eat-in restaurant and bar. Perfect for me to relax. Located on the upper walkway inside The Lock, it been open since 2005 and had a refurbishment in January of this year.

With a large outside area overlooking the Lock, it’s great during the warmer months. The perfect spot to enjoy food and a few drinks while you watch the world go by.

Most recently they’ve branched upon a fresh TexMex theme with their ‘Evil Twin’ brand delivering fresh, authentic food bursting with flavour from their creative kitchen.

 

 

The chefs are energetic, enthusiastic and bubbly. Just what you want from this type of area.

We sat down at the back of the restaurant after ordering our drinks from the bar. Nattering away about what a fantastic location it was,  and checking out the quirky artwork on the walls.

Within a very reasonable time our food arrived!

A wooden serving board packed with a fabulous array of foods arrived at our table and we tucked straight in!

  • 5 Hour “Hell Yeah” Pork Belly Tacos with
  • Kimchi & Guac, corn tortilla
  • Hot Butter & Siracha Wings
  • Hot Butter & Siracha Wings
  • Jalapeño Poppers, Chipotle Aioli, spring Onions
  • Nacho’s smothered in Queso

The Pork belly was AMAZING! Cooked just right, the juicy flavours just melted in our mouths!

The wings?  We love a wing and these were by far some of the best we’ve ever tasted!

Jalapeño Poppers are no doubt going to have a kick about them and these were kickin’ for all the right reasons!

 

Very moreish.

And finally the cheesy Nachos…YES, just YES!

The food is tasty, fresh and bursting in flavours and the Kimchi & Guac tortilla was by far our favourite!

 

They also do some fantastic looking Burgers too!

The vibe is edgy yet chilled, the food is delicious and the drinks are cold. What more could you want from an afternoon in Camden Town?
