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…

Vegan Filo Pesto Tarts

I love trying out new recipes and when Aldi challenged me to make a vegan centre plate dish I was so excited. I love the bright colours of the filling and it shows that vegan food is anything but boring! Find all the details below to create these perfect vegan filo pesto tarts: Ingredients: For…

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…

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…

Filmore & Union – Nottingham

Filmore & Union have recently opened in the Victoria Centre, inside John Lewis. Set up initially by a lady called Adele, a former wellness clinic owner, the ethos is around healthy food and everything in moderation. I mean, you can’t be 100% healthy all the time can you? Adele states on the website that she…

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…

Happy Dough Lucky – Nottingham

Happy Dough Lucky have been teasing me for months. Facebook posts, press releases on email, you name it. It has been on the cards for months and months but is only now fully up and running. Based at The Lacehouse, a beautiful bar on Broadway in the city centre, this pizza pop up has been…

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…

Vermicelli Miso Ramen

I love rice noodle soup. Vermicelli miso is one of my favourite dishes. I really enjoy cooking Japanese food and you really don’t need meat to fill you up. Try this, I am sure you won’t be disappointed! Ready in 10 minutes and serves 2 and 500 calories. Ingredients 2 tbsp Miso paste 2 tbsp…

Harissa Aubergine Kebabs

This recipe is in the 15 minute vegan recipe book from Katie Beskow, AKA Little Miss Meat Free. It has become a regular in our house over the last 3 weeks and is fantastically quick and simple. There’s minimal effort but maximum impact with this recipe. I urge you to grab the recipe book HERE…

Bar Iberico – Take Two

A few months ago I wrote about my experience at Bar Iberico. I said that although the food was ok and the atmosphere was lively, I wouldn’t choose to return given the amount of tapas restaurants to choose from in Nottingham. A couple of months ago this changed. The Gaztronome absolutely raved about the place…

Oaty Blueberry cookies

I’ve been struggling to control my sweet tooth throughout January. As well as doing Veganuary I’ve also tried to cut out chocolate, sweets and crisps. I figure that January is the most depressing month of the year, why not make it as bad as humanly possible haha. These cookies are sweet, chewy and crumbly all…
