Annual visit to Devon update. Another year another visit to see the in-laws. This year we were blessed with perfect weather, unlike previous years where it has been raining away.

As is normal with my trips to Devon, copius amounts of mushy peas and chips are consumed, but I also happened to make some new discoveries; one of them being in the form of curry sauce! Sadly it would seem not all curry sauces are created equal.

During the trip we also paid a visit to Exter for afternoon tea at The Hidden Treasure Tea Room.

And a milkshake from Tony’s.

In Brixham (as well as delicious curry sauce) I found a health food shop with a small cafe, I got a tea cake and I think a slice of raw cake (can’t remember what  flavour, that’ll teach me to blog sooner!).

The place I was most excited about and with good reason was Maido, in Torquay. It’s an authentic Japanese noodle bar where I had an amazing mochi udon ramen. They also have the best Japanese toys to keep the kiddies entertained. I plan to visit every time we go back.

    Good to see you still come down to Devon. You didn’t go to Totnes, the vegan capital of the UK! Maybe next time eh!

    Not on that trip, but we have been there a few years back. You’re right though, time for another visit 🙂
