Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

I've never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I'd not spent much time in that area of the city. In my mind the strip of bars and takeaways is more suited… Continue reading Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

Steak club @ Bar + Block

After a brilliant, but incredibly busy, weekend I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself at the start of last week. Don't get me wrong, most of it was self inflicted (my hen do was epic; I thought I was dying until Wednesday) but I was most definitely in need of a post-weekend pick… Continue reading Steak club @ Bar + Block

Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails. For those unfamiliar with this bar come restaurant, it's an eclectic mix of plush furnishing, peculiar paintings, and over the top decor. It manages to feel like a vintage boutique-esq… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

Free ‘Independence Day’ burgers @ Buffalo & Rye

"I could've been at a barbecue!" When I think of Independence Day I find it hard to picture anything other than a baby-faced Will Smith kicking seven bells of shite out of an unconscious alien, but thankfully on Tuesday last week my thoughts were turned to food courtesy of Buffalo & Rye. Announcing across the social… Continue reading Free ‘Independence Day’ burgers @ Buffalo & Rye

A fun cinema experience but disappointing food @ Mockingbird

You find me today a disappointed and confused foodie. I've written and deleted the opening of this blog post so many times now, but I've decided to just post a blow-by-blow account of my recent visit to Mockingbird Cinema & Kitchen. I have to be honest from the get go and say this may be… Continue reading A fun cinema experience but disappointing food @ Mockingbird

Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade

One of the best things about 'working from home' is that I'm not confined to an office, and I often take my laptop to random locations around the city to work remotely. I enjoy being able to change my working environment on a daily basis, although I must confess I do have some favourite go-to… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade

Birthday bites and all the cheese @ Fumo

I've heard a lot of people rave about Fumo over the years but until recently was yet to visit it personally. Part of the San Carlo group, the swish Italian inspired restaurant and cocktail bar is situated on Waterloo Street and is, from what I can gather, always super busy at the weekend.  With one… Continue reading Birthday bites and all the cheese @ Fumo

Pizzas, pies and a nice surprise @ The Stable

I remember when The Stable opened in late 2015 - mainly because it marked the first time since my teens that I'd actively enjoyed a pint of cider. Like many high school reprobates, cider was one of the first tipples I ever got drunk on and - despite my best efforts at university - it… Continue reading Pizzas, pies and a nice surprise @ The Stable

Burrito bowls @ Habaneros Mexican Street Food

Last week I had a lunch in the park that could only be described as life changing. As anyone who knows me well will testify, I am absolutely in love with all things burrito and I'm always looking for somewhere that I haven't tried for my next fix. Last week I finally paid a visit… Continue reading Burrito bowls @ Habaneros Mexican Street Food
