Esquitx Creperia, Reus, Spain (Warning: Contains Pancakes!)

Esquitx Creperia, Reus, Spain (Warning: Contains Pancakes!)

I landed in Spain with food on my mind (shocking I know!) and wanted my first meal to be something traditional; mussels perhaps, or maybe a paella. I’d chosen a seemingly suitable restaurant for lunch but arrived to find the shutters down. It was early so we went for a walk around the town expecting to return to an open ... Read More »

A Delicious Breakfast At Delicieux Bolton With Healing Powers!

A Delicious Breakfast At Delicieux Bolton With Healing Powers!

Having been invited to popup bar ‘Aperol Spritz Social’ in Spinningfields last night where I was contractually obligated to drink many complimentary cocktails I was feeling somewhat delicate this morning. I remembered being impressed by the breakfast menu on my last trip to Delicieux so decided to check it out and see if they can fix poorly heads. Starting with a ... Read More »

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

This was the 5th stop on my epic London weekender and whilst all of the other places were new to me, some with Michelin stars and big name chefs behind them it was Dishoom who I’d already visited last year that I was perhaps most excited about. When I revisit places I usually want to sample different things from the ... Read More »

Delicieux Bolton. Great Pies, Even Better Cakes!

Delicieux Bolton. Great Pies, Even Better Cakes!

It had been 12 days, 16 hours, 44 minutes and 34 seconds since I had last stepped foot in a restaurant and I was beginning to go a little stir crazy. I’m sure I don’t need to point out that this was certainly not by choice but thanks to a wisdom tooth extraction and then a post op infection. My ... Read More »

Chorlton Green Brasserie

Chorlton Green Brasserie

I love good food but that doesn’t mean i’m obsessed with fine-dining and Michelin stars. I’m just as excited by simple food cooked properly using high quality ingredients. When looking for a place to stop at for lunch somewhere on the route back from Etrop Grange I somehow came across Chorlton Green Brasserie. It only opened in October 2012 but ... Read More »

Pancake Corner, Urmston, Manchester

Pancake Corner, Urmston, Manchester

A restaurant that only serves pancakes? I love pancakes (who doesn’t?) so I was obviously excited by this prospect. Pancake Corner is a bit out of the way down a back street in Urmston but there is a popup coming to Manchester’s Spinningfields soon. It was completely empty when we arrived and it actually looked closed, luckily it wasn’t. Inside ... Read More »

Dishoom, Bombay Breakfast Club, London

Dishoom, Bombay Breakfast Club, London

Dishoom is a tribute to the famous Bombay Cafés, there were almost four hundred cafés at their peak in the 1960s but now less than 30 remain! Apparently ‘Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites’. After eating at Dishoom I totally feel their pain! We ordered coffe and a Breakfast Lassi, a sort of smoothie made with yoghurt, banana, mango ... Read More »

Tight, Cafe Bar, Copenhagen, Denmark

Tight, Cafe Bar, Copenhagen, Denmark

After eating at fine dining restaurants for the past couple of days we decided we’d like something a bit more casual for our last day in Copenhagen. We were spoilt for choice as there are countless cafe bars in the city. We ended up at ‘Tight’ based on some fantastic reviews and it’s location very near to Christiansborg, home of ... Read More »
