Visit Helsinki series have been one of the most read and also my personal favourite articles on the blog, therefore it doesn’t come as a surprise that they’ve been a constant on my blog for more than 2 years. Visit Helsinki? Why would somebody want to visit the capital of the Santa Land, esp. when it comes to a foodie experience? Well, there are many reasons why to visit this unique city which keeps on evolving in every direction all the time, food scene being one of them.
Nobu Shoreditch, a newcomer to the ever growing restaurant scene in London. Dinner at Nobu Shoreditch was on top of the “must visit” places on my travel bucket list during my recent trip to London. Nobu restaurants are a worldwide group of top notch, Japanese cuisine and fine dining restaurants, coming from the celebrated Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
Nobu Shoreditch is also owned by a super famous Hollywood actor Robert DeNiro who also attended the opening of this restaurant and the first Nobu hotel in London a few months ago. By opening Nobu Shoreditch hotel and restaurant, Shoreditch area got a big “upgrade” to already buzzing and growing area of London that is quickly becoming one of the coolest areas in town to live, explore, work… You name it! 🙂 Continue Reading…
Oh my… Birthday week of celebrating and being so overwhelmed and on the go, surrounded by so many friends ( and people in general ) on daily basis got to me… My energy is officially running low atm. 😀 I still have so many cool things and outings planned for this weekend and I’m totally set on taking Monday and Tuesday as my “pampering days”. 😀
No niin. Syntymäpäivä viikko menossa juhlistaen. Olen todella innoissani ja kokoajan liikkeessä. Olen ympäröinyt itseni rakkailla ystävillä (ja ylipäänsä ihmisillä) päivittäin, ja se on maksanut veronsa. Sillä energiavarantoni alkavat ehtymään täällä hetkellä… 😊 Minulla on monta asiaa ja menoa suunniteltuna tälle viikonlopulle. Joten olen päättänyt pyhittää tulevan Maanantain ja Tiistain “hemmottelulle”. 😊
It’s Friday afternoon already and I’m totally feeling very weekend-ish! It’s hard to concentrate on much and I feel like the whole week just flew by in an instant which means that I’ve been very busy and I still have so much “leftover” work that this weekend won’t be a super laid-back one but I will take a moment here and there to just do fun stuff, like meeting friends and watching a cartoon with my daughter tomorrow.
Good Friday or shall I write FRI-YAY everybody?! 🙂 I’m bringing you yet another” 5 for Friday” post. I’m kind of glad that this week is going to it’s end, the beginning of August caught me off guard and it was kind of a weird week, lots of work and errands, too little sleep and missing a good weather.
There is a saying that love goes through stomach. I can absolutely confess that I did let my heart skip a beat or two each time I ate great food. I’m thankful for being able to explore different cuisines and restaurants in the past and esp. throughout the last year. I could have never believed that I could fall for some food so much that I just had to keep on coming back over and over again for more. 🙂
Who could ever say that Mediterranean cuisine has anything to do with the Japanese one? Who could ever say that these two could be “mixed” and deliver the best of two worlds together in one place? Bota Sare made me believe that this is very much possible.
Oyster and sushi bar Bota Sare comes from a 40 years long family tradition of love for the sea food originating from their hometown Mali Ston. First fusion restaurant like this one was opened in Dubrovnik, followed by the one I’ve visited in Split. Ever since, Bota Sare has been the ultimate choice for many locals and tourists as a “must try” sushi place as well as a place where you get to try the best of traditional meals such as seafood risotto, octopus salad or mixed shells in Buzara sauce.
Bota Sare is tucked away in a small side street, just a short walk away from the most visited spot in Split – Splitska Riva, one of the most beautiful promenades that a sea side city can have. Thanks to the benefits of Split city being situated at the Adriatic sea coast, fish is caught fresh daily and that is something that you can make sure of – Bota Sare serves only the best of the quality produce and never make compromises. Oysters are also daily caught and shipped from Mali Ston to Split.
Menu is really interesting and “colourful” so it was a bit though to decide on what to choose from it, but since I’m a huge sushi lover, I had to take different nigiris, rolls and sashimi as starters and main course. Another two options were for more of a meat eaters, spring rolls stuffed with cream cheese and veggies as for the starter and beef teriyaki with rice as the main course.
Sushi rolls were great, especially a dragon roll, but the spotlight def. goes to the super fresh and delicious nigiris and spicy tuna tataki!
If you want to enjoy the unique crossover of Dalmatian vs. Japanese cuisine, make sure to stop by Bota Sare and let the kind and skilful staff welcome you with the plates full of goodness for all of the true seafood lovers.

Hello everybody and greetings from sunny Croatia!! I’m here for my friend’s wedding day which is tomorrow and I’m very excited to see her take a big step in her life like this one. I’m also looking forward to just relaxing and having some fun with close friends.
I’m also here for some work and small projects which I can’t wait to talk to you about. Most of it is still “under construction”, but already next week, I’ll be kickin’ off the first assignment. 🙂 Keep an eye on this space because Croatia is a big time “hotspot” as the world’s most wanted Summer destination this year.
Since I have a lot to do and prepare for tomorrow’s wedding celebrations, I’ll take off now, but stay tuned for so much more to come. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
This Sunday is a perfect day to continue with my “Visit Helsinki” series of posts in which I recommend you the places of my choice which you could visit when in Helsinki, from places to dine at to places to shop at, hotels to stay at, etc. After many amazing restaurants which I have presented you so far, which many of them were Asian, I simply had to present you Tokyo55. Japanese restaurant, catering and a sushi academy were opened back in 2009 and up until this day, it stayed one of the locals’ favourite place to go and enjoy, for example, fresh and delicious Tokyo55’s signature sushi rolls.
