The Alternative Weekend Break; a guide to Cambridge, England

So, after just one weekend, I’m in love with Cambridge. That might be a bit forward… I mean the glorious sunshine probably helped and the Pimms definitely did, but there were so many quirks about the city, I just couldn’t help it.  I’ve been talking about wanting to do more UK city breaks for a […]

A taste of Japan with Issho

For the longest time, I feel as though Leeds has been calling out for a contemporary Japanese restaurant. I’m talking great sushi (sorry Yo! but you’re hardly haute cuisine), tasting menus and specially selected ingredients from a very talented chef. The latter comes in the form of Ben Orpwood, previously of Zuma and, the restaurant […]

As far as eating out goes, I rarely need an excuse, but I feel like afternoon tea is a little more of a luxury. So with Mother’s Day around the corner and an invite from Marco’s New York Italian Restaurant to try out their afternoon tea, I got my favourite ladies together for a treat…

Pan-Asian perfection at Bar Soba, Leeds

A new menu at a place you love can go one of two ways: either the restaurant ditches all the things you fell for in the first place OR they step up their game so much you end up ordering take-out from them the next night (not that I’m speaking from experience or anything). But spoiler […]

Brunch at Sheaf Street Cafeteria, Leeds

Brunch is thebomb.com and if you disagree, this probs ain’t the place for you. I could happily eat brunch food for every meal and I love nothing more than spending my mornings in coffee shops, a plate of eggs benedict on one side and my laptop on the other (God bless free wifi). I’d heard […]

Lobster Benedict Brunch at Browns, Leeds*

Brunch is most definitely the greatest ever invention, after the sassy lady emoji ofc. There is never an occasion where brunch isn’t fabulous. Need a hangover cure? Brunch. Need a shopping break? Brunch. Need an excuse to drink Prosecco before 11am? You get the gist. AND no one will ever judge you for going straight […]

Bao Buns at Yuu Kitchen, London*

Whenever I’m dining out (a.k.a always, ‘cause have you tried my cooking??) I try to visit somewhere new and, ideally, independent. So with an open invite to the newly opened Yuu Kitchen, I grabbed my gal Karis from Shy, Strange, Manic and headed to check it out. A nosey at the menu was enough to get […]
