Bills Restaurant – Nottingham

Earlier this week I was very kindly invited to Bill’s Restaurant on Queen Street in Nottingham to try out their new menu. I have visited a couple of times for brunch (you can read my review HERE) but haven’t had dinner here yet. I’m not sure why Bill’s Nottingham slips my mind whenever I am…

Mushrooms on toast

I have always wanted to eat mushrooms on toast, but as most recipes call for cream, I’ve never eaten them. Last weekend I really wanted mushrooms as part of my breakfast so I made this loaded toast with ingredients I always have to hand. It turned out even better than expected and made for a…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

Sushimania All you can eat – Nottingham

A few weeks ago I wrote about how Sushimania had opened in Nottingham. I ordered a takeaway one lunch time to try it out. Read about it HERE. One of the main reasons Sushimania has been so popular in Nottingham is that it offers an ‘all you can eat’ sushi experience for £16.80! It sounds…

The Hockley Arts Club – Nottingham

The Hockley Arts Club is located through a nondescript alleyway on Carlton Street. If you didn’t know it was there, you may never find it. Hockley Arts Club is the place to go for amazing cocktails in a stunning setting, but is it the place you should be going for fantastic grub too? I was…
