Turkish food in Chengdu – China.

I know, you thought you could never get bored of spicy noodle soup. Fried rice with veggies and six thousand chillies doesn’t appeal for breakfast? How about chicken feet? Trust me, after a few weeks or even months in China you may find yourself a little tired of the intense and rich flavours of Chinese food (especially the spice of the cuisine in Chengdu) and fancy something a little different.

The cheapest Michelin star restaurant in the world – Hong Kong.

Eating Michelin star rated food, in Hong Kong, for little over a tenner. Impossible? Well actually it’s not. Tim Ho Wan is an inviting and delicious dim sum restaurant with a few different venues over the city. The menu contains both English and Cantonese with tick boxes at the side of each item. As opposed to telling the waiter what you would like, you simply put ticks in the correlating […]

Peddler Night Market – Sheffield

Peddler Night Market is set inside an ex-industrial warehouse at 92 Burton Road, Kelham Island Sheffield. Each month the market returns, I cannot resist attending as is it always an evening to remember (and the fact it’s approximately 26 seconds from my flat). It all started last year and has been a massive hit each month since. Peddler Market opens its doors on the first Friday & Saturday of each […]

The owners explained […]

Bodega – Birmingham.

Last week on a whim we decided to visit Bodega whilst having a night away in Birmingham. I was slightly taken a back when the waiter looked concerned we hadn’t booked. It was mid-afternoon on a Monday and there was only 3 other tables taken in the whole restaurant. However, we were shown to our table and I must say I was impressed by the extensive menu. The place is […]

The Oriental Express – Sheffield

So this weekend we celebrated the Chinese new year with a feast at the Oriental Express Sheffield. The Oriental Express is situated right in the heart of Sheffield on Glossop Road and is the perfect people-watching spot if you’re lucky enough to grab a table in the window as we were. The restaurant is weird and wonderfully decorated and the staff were all really friendly. There is a really extensive […]

Grind Cafe – Sheffield.

Looking for a fab lunch/brunch/coffee spot in Sheffield then look no further than Grind at Kelham Island. It’s a really cosy little café and the staff are all super friendly and helpful. There’s a board up behind the till with all of the day’s menu (I believe it changes daily) and all the freshly made puds are out on the counter, just in case you needed any convincing. If you […]

The Depot Bakery – Sheffield

Despite the fact this gem is literally a 30 second walk from our flat we ventured to the depot bakery for breakfast for the first time yesterday morning. The place itself is made up of two sections, the Depot Bakery and the Depot Eatery. I loved the fact you could see your bread being freshly baked as you sat eating your breakfast. The building is light and airy with a […]
