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…

Harts Restaurant – Nottingham

Hart’s Restaurant is somewhere I have always wanted to visit… in about 10 years time. The impression I have always had is that it is sophisticated fine dining that I will love, but not until I am older. I have no idea why I have this impression, maybe because whenever anyone tells me how much…

Ask me anything

Through a mix of Instagram and Twitter posts, I asked my lovely followers to ask me anything! Here are the questions, if you would like to get to know me… With all the amazing food you eat, do you find it hard not to indulge in tons of rich food? Nope. I eat what I…

East Midlands Airport Review

When does your holiday start? As soon as you finish your last day of work and put your out of office on? Getting through security at the airport? Putting your key in the hotel room door and sipping your first cocktail? I doubt anyone would answer ‘Waiting in line at airport security’. I’ll be honest,…

Syriana – Birmingham

On a recent trip to Birmingham with some friends, we headed to Syriana Restaurant for dinner. Syriana is located at 1 Constitution Hill, in the heart of the city. We stumbled upon this restaurant on the way to a gig at the o2 Academy. From the outside it didn’t really appeal but having found it via…

The Head of Steam – Nottingham

The Head of Steam has opened today in Hockley, on the site of the old Missoula Bar. Centering around craft beer, the three storey building has been completely transformed into a funky, contemporary, chilled bar. My favourite part was the artwork dedicated to Nottingham. The booths at the back of the downstairs area are apparently…

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…

Las Iguanas – Nottingham

I was invited to Las Iguanas, Nottingham last week week to try out their new menu. Now, I have to be honest, this is the first time I have been to a Las Iguanas, even though it is right next door to work. With this in mind I can’t comment on the changes to the menu…
