Fraiche, Oxton, Wirral – Michelin Starred Dining On Merseyside

Fraiche, Oxton, Wirral – Michelin Starred Dining On Merseyside

Fraiche is one of those restaurants i’ve been intending to visit for several years but for various reasons it just didn’t happen. One reason is that despite being one of my closest Michelin starred restaurants it’s difficult to reach by public transport so i’d need to either drive home, which I don’t like to do after eating in fine dining ...

Levenshulme Market & My First Taste Of Columbian Street Food, Arepa!

Levenshulme Market & My First Taste Of Columbian Street Food, Arepa!

I do enjoy a good market, particularly those that sell food. I’d heard a lot of good things about Levenshulme Market, or ‘Levy Market’ as it’s commonly known as. Held on the last Saturday of each month on the train station car park it’s a community market of local traders selling everything from vintage clothes and gifts to music and ... Read More »

Bowling & Sunday Lunch At Dog Bowl, Manchester

Bowling & Sunday Lunch At Dog Bowl, Manchester

When I visited Dog Bowl for the first time in May I loved the bowling and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food being served too. I was invited to check out their new Sunday lunch menu which I happily accepted. Located under one of the arches on Whitworth Street West if you approach from behind as we did ... Read More »

More Than Just Sushi At Umezushi, Manchester

More Than Just Sushi At Umezushi, Manchester

I’ve returned to Umezushi a few times since my first visit back in March, each occasion was enjoyable but I chose not to write them up since the food was very similar. I couldn’t resist writing about my latest visit last Wednesday though. It was a typically cold and miserable Manchester evening as we rushed the short distance from Victoria ... Read More »

‘On The Game’ With The Drunken Butcher (Contains MEAT)

‘On The Game’ With The Drunken Butcher (Contains MEAT)

Three weeks ago I’d never been to a supper club, having loved my first experience I couldn’t wait for the second last Saturday. This time run by DineInOut, a dining club who organise events in restaurants and private homes. I’d been tempted by several of their previous events but was finally hooked by the cheekily titled ‘On The Game’ with The Drunken Butcher. I’d been following ... Read More »

Bacon & Apple Risotto by ‘Yorkshire’s Best Young Chef’

Bacon & Apple Risotto by ‘Yorkshire’s Best Young Chef’

When I started this blog I intended the posts to be roughly 50/50 restaurant reviews and my own recipes. A couple of years later and i’ve passed 150 reviews but shamefully only posted 6 recipes! So when I was contacted by Sainsbury’s and asked if i’d like to cook and review a recipe created by the winner of ‘Yorkshire’s Best ... Read More »

Barburrito, Trafford Centre – ‘Food that mex the world spin faster’, Apparently.

Barburrito, Trafford Centre – ‘Food that mex the world spin faster’, Apparently.

The Trafford Centre really isn’t one of my favourite places, especially when i’m hungry as it’s filled with crappy chain restaurants that almost always end in disappointment. The only exception is Yo! Sushi which is where I headed, only to find it closed for renovations ‘until October’. I was furious as it had been October for over 12 hours! Eventually ... Read More »

Wagamama Autumn/Winter 2013 Menu – Special Preview

Wagamama Autumn/Winter 2013 Menu – Special Preview

Though I hate to admit it and genuinely try not to be, if I’m being honest I have to accept that deep down I’m a bit of a food snob. Especially when it comes to restaurants, chains in particular. I’ve been put off by previous bad experiences but mainly I just find them so bland and soulless. There are a ... Read More »
