Rikshaw Urban Indian Kitchen – Sherwood

Having seen all the Instagram and Facebook posts, I was super excited to try out Rikshaw Indian Kitchen, at 615 Mansfield Road. The food looked amazing and the menu sounded fun, so I messaged on Facebook asking to book a table for myself and 2 friends. Silly me! Turns out it is a takeaway! Their…

Merchants Restaurant at The Lace Market Hotel

A 5 course menu created by their new head chef Luke Holland, each dish is inspired by different events in Luke’s life, using different tastes to evoke personal memories….

Quick Quinoa Nut Bars Recipe

Quinoa Nut Bars Recipe I am trying to be a little healthier with my snacking and not reach for the chocolate bar as soon as I get that first pang of hunger. I love having a stash of quinoa bars in my fridge as it stops me snacking on rubbish, but the Aldi goji &…

Ginsecco @ The Playhouse – Nottingham

A couple of weeks ago I went down to the Ginsecco pop up evening at The Nottingham Playhouse Bar & Kitchen. A promise of 6 tapas style courses of British food with a twist, paired with 6 cocktails from the Ginsecco guys… Why wouldn’t I go?! Ginsecco is opening this summer in the Cornerhouse, and…

48 hours in Bath

Over Bank Holiday Eleanor and I headed South for the weekend. After a quick stop in Bristol to visit a friend (read about our trip HERE) we headed for 48 hours in Bath. Sightseeing, comedy and lots and lots of food was on the agenda… Where did we park? We arrived late on the Saturday,…

La Perla – Bath

La Perla Restaurant on North Parade, just down the road from the famous Pulteney Bridge, is a gorgeous Spanish tapas restaurant. It is hidden down a spiral staircase tucked away from the city, if we hadn’t taken a detour from the car to the hostel we wouldn’t have found it. Rows of tables are situated…

Oaks – Nottingham

Oaks Restaurant at 2 Bromley Place closed at the start of December due to a fire in their kitchen extractor fan. Because of the time of year and the complexity of the system, it took until this month for them to reopen. I absolutely loved Oaks before the closure (read my previous review HERE) and…

Sushimania – Nottingham

A few weeks ago Sushimania opened up right round the corner from my work. I did wonder whether with the pre-existing Yo Sushi and Bonsai to name but two, would there be room for another sushi restaurant in the city? Located in the old Ask Italian restaurant in Chapel Bar, Sushimania has a small entrance…

5 tasty quick dinners

Working full time doesn’t mean having to eat boring food during the week. I try to cook delicious food during the week, as quickly as possible. I try to keep all midweek dinners under 30 minutes for my housemate and I, including all prep time. There is so much I need to do when I…

Vegan chocolate brownies

The thing I seemed to miss most during Veganuary was chocolate. There is an amazing vegan chocolate from Aldi with a hint of sea salt but because it isn’t my usual supermarket I would often forget to grab some. I missed walking into the freshly baked or snack aisle of my local supermarket and grab…

Son of Steak – New menu launch

If you read my blog, you’ll know that I adore Son of Steak in Trinity Square. So much so that a quote from a previous blog post is emblazoned on their huge glass window. They are typically a steak restaurant but they ‘do things differently’ and are ‘rebellious’. Their points of difference in comparison to…
