How to Book Your Next Holiday & Save on Food Shopping [Sponsored]

Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by SuperValu Ireland

Every year after Christmas I start planning my foodie trips for the year ahead, because let’s face it, it’s the best way to beat the doom and gloom. This year was no exception, when I just came back from Copenhagen in January I booked my next holiday to Lisbon.

If you follow me on Instagram (@Frenchfoodieindublin) you may remember that I posted a story with the steps on how I booked my trip to Lisbon while making sure I collected SuperValu Real Rewards points to be able to save money on food shopping later.

Lisbon City Guide: Where to Eat and Drink

While my mother is Portuguese I'm ashamed to say that I've only been to Portugal twice. The first time was about ten years ago, Mr. FFID and I spent a week in Lisbon doing all the main attractions, enjoying day trips to Caiscais and Sintra as well as gorging on cheap food and drinks. We loved it and always said we would come back.

Tasty Tacos in the Heart of Temple Bar: El Grito

Back in 2007 Mr. FFID and I traveled to Tulum on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. This was years before Hartwood opened and at a time when backpacking and sleeping in a rustic cabaña (wooden hut) on the beach wasn't a bother. It was pretty much like camping, except a lot more exotic and even a little scary (like the time I found myself facing a massive iguana while having a shower). The weather was so stormy while we were there that I kept getting sand on my face at night and we ended up leaving earlier than planned.

A Burger Joint with a Conscience? BuJo, Sandymount

Bujo burger Dublin

Since reviewing Bunsen and Wowburger a few years back, I wasn't expecting to find another burger place worth writing home about. Claiming to have found the best burger in a city is always controversial territory because everyone has their own favourite and most of the time Bunsen would be cited as the no1 go-to place.

Review: Storyboard, Dublin 8

Storyboard cafe Dublin

Exactly a week after I had eaten in Storyboard, Catherine Cleary wrote about it in the Irish Times and titled her review 'This is the best cafe food I've eaten in Ireland'. This was over 4 months ago and shows how bad of a blogger I've been lately. Yes, I'm only writing about my visit now.
