The Tailors Arms – Wilford

Situated on Wilford Lane, the Tailors Arms has been open since May of last year. British classic dishes are the order of the day, and I went down to experience this gastro pub for myself a couple of days ago. First Impressions The building is huge! From the outside it is a strange shape with…

Cuzina -West Bridgford

I haven’t been so excited to write a review in quite a while! Last night I was invited to dine at Cuzina in West Bridgford for the first time. The Greek restaurant, situated on Radcliffe Road, just up from the McDonalds, is a firm favourite for some of my friends. Why I haven’t yet visited…

The Calcutta Club – Nottingham

Now I don’t profess to know anything about Indian cuisine, my palate is not at all refined. I do however love a blooming good Korma or Tikka Masala. That’s about my level of curry knowledge if I’m honest. So when I was invited to the Calcutta club on Maid Marian Way I was excited to…

Pistachio & Parsnip Puff

I love pastry. All my favourite things are made with pastry; sausage rolls, pies, cinnamon rolls…. now I can add this delicious, super simple dish to that list. I have made variations of this for a while (usually with a red pepper pesto) but I was experimenting with a pistachio pesto I make and it…

Revolución de Cuba – Vegan

Last night I was invited to try the newly launched vegan menu at Revolución De Cuba in Nottingham. Anyone who reads my blog will know I’m already a fan of this gorgeous Cuban inspired bar in the city centre. Their tapas style menu has been written about a few times on Will Flirt For Food…

Vegan Ramen with sticky tofu

I bloody love Japanese food and ramen is one of my favourite comfort foods. It’s like a huge hug, and I needed it today after celebrating the new year with a couple too many drinks! This recipe feeds 4 people (and reheats perfectly for lunch the next day!) Ingredients For the broth 1 pint of…

Lotus biscuit millionaire tray bake

I blooming love lotus biscuits. I also love millionaire shortbread. The sweet caramel taste is guaranteed to make me smile no matter how bad a day I am having. After a pretty full on night out on Friday, and subsequent hangover, I wanted to make something that required minimum effort but maximum taste. That’s where…

What to do in Da Nang

For the final leg of our two week trip in Vietnam, we decided to spend a few days relaxing in Da Nang. We spent four nights in Da Nang, staying at Funtastic Beach Hostel on the East side of the town. The reason we chose it was because it was a two minute walk to the…

Two days in Hue

Hue was one of my favourite cities in Vietnam. The city is split in two by the Perfume River and is the capital of the Nguyễn Dynasty. The house of Nguyễn were the last ruling family of Vietnam and ruled for 143 years, finishing in 1945, the same year that the second world war ended. Even though…

Halong Bay 3 Day Trip

During our trip to Vietnam, Eleanor and I spend 2 nights, 3 days on a trip around Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long bay and Lan Ha Bay. You can read more about it here I wanted to show you some of the amazing sites we saw during our trip.   The Hospital Cave is a…

Two days in Hanoi

Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and the second largest city. Situated in the north, 1000 miles from Ho Chi Minh City, the best way to reach it is by air. The flight takes just over 2 hours and is better than a 35 hour train ride! We flew from HCMC early morning arriving by…

Two week itinerary for Vietnam

Two Week Vietnam Itinerary If like me, you work full time and can’t just jet off for an unspecified amount of time, you probably only have two weeks to explore a new place. With this in mind, I thought I would let you know how I packed 7 major areas into just two weeks of…
