HWKR Street Food Market

Yesterday I was invited along by the lovely PR and marketing manager from Lola Jeans, Lorna, to her blogging event which she ran over at the HWKR street food market.

A Day in Edinburgh

My Delhi Newcastle

Step straight into Delhi right off one of Newcastle’s busiest streets. My Delhi is the newest Indian street-food restaurant to take Newcastle by storm.

Aidan’s Kitchen

On a sunny Saturday morning a friend and I went down to Aidan’s kitchen in Sandyford for a weekend brunch. We arrived around 10.30am and luckily got a table by the window where other tables had been reserved (probably best for the weekend rush). The simplistic decor of white and grey compliments the kitchen well…

Barluga Gosforth

With branches not on Grey Street, Morpeth and Gosforth High Street, Barluga is the new place to be. The gastro-pub style menu with a mix of comfort foods, modern British classics and an a la carte menu what more could we ask for. The opening of the Gosforth branch was the Friday before Mothers Day….
