Grilled Cheese Magic at Blend in Sneinton Market

Blend in Sneinton Market is a fantastic spot serving up some of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I have had for ages. They may just have saved my grilled cheese life! They are serving proper grilled cheese cooked on the flat top grill and have created a whole load of tasty combinations all with themed…

Breakfast at The Picnic Basket

I love the Picnic Basket on Carrington Street! I always pick this place over the nearby chains if I want a cup of tea and a sandwich. When we are getting the train out of town it is my first stop in the morning for a bacon cob which comes with a free cup of…

The Eel Bento Box at Manga Sushi

Manga Sushi Japanese Restaurant on King Street in Nottingham seems to style itself between Sushi and Noodles.  As you might expect the menu had a lot of sushi options on it, and perhaps really  that was what I should have been ordering. To be honest I popped in here because I fancied some noodles or…

Happy Dough Lucky – Excellent Neapolitan Style Pizza

Happy Dough Lucky have taken over The Lace House Bar in the Eastern Quarter with a Pop-up restaurant serving up some really quite decent Pizza. I had heard on the very low hanging Grapevine back in December that they were up and running with a very soft launch and that they were going to be…

Moulin Rouge – Fish and Chips on Trinity Square

Kayal Business Lunch – The Thali

  Kayal is one of the restaurant stalwarts on Broad Street in Nottingham. They serve up Southern Indian style food and are a pretty well thought of when you talk about where to go for an Indian meal in the Nottingham Curry scene. They are also one of the spots that we seem to have…

Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market – Beer and Pizza

The Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market is one of the latest pubs to open up in Nottingham under the Castle Rock Brewery umbrella. This particular opening back in September was most welcome as it saw the re-emergence of a Public House that has been located at this spot since the 1830’s. In recent times…

Wigflex Chicken and Waffles Pop-up at Nottingham Street Food

Wigflex were at the Nottingham Street Food market this weekend hosting a ‘Chicken and Waffles’ pop-up. Their Facebook page said that it was just going to be a ‘one-off’ event. I suppose that depending on how successful they felt it had gone they might carry on? 🙂 I love a bit of Chicken and Waffles…
