Breakfast @ Friends Of Ham, Leeds

Friends Of Ham, Leeds

I’m really growing to love Leeds; in fact, in many ways I think I prefer it to Manchester now. I’m still finding out about the city, but one place I keep going back to is Friends Of Ham. Having been a few times for their fantastic charcuterie and great range of craft beers, I recently visited in the morning to try their …

Breakfast @ Wahaca, Oxford Circus, London

Wahaca, Oxford Circus, London

Usually when I wake up in London wanting breakfast there’s only one place on my mind; Dishoom’s ‘Bacon Naan’ is legendary and one of my all time favourite breakfast items. But one day I fancied something different, something a little healthier perhaps. Then I remembered that Mexican street food chain Wahaca serve breakfast. Although I didn’t realise at the time that only …

St. JOHN Maltby, Maltby Street, London

St John Maltby, Maltby Street

Maltby Street was already one of my favourite places in London; its lively Ropewalk food market features fantastic stalls, pop up bars and street food along with a great vibe and friendly atmosphere. It’s even better now thanks to the addition of St. JOHN Maltby, a sit in space under a railway arch run by legendary Michelin starred chef Fergus Henderson. …

Ox Pasture Hall, Luxury Country House Hotel, Scarborough

Despite the fact that approximately half of my family are from Yorkshire, and in the words of my Mother I am in fact ‘50% Yorkshire’ myself, I don’t spend as much time there as I should. Leeds is obviously a great city but the county has so much more to offer, particularly along the coast. Just a few months ago I …

Home Sweet Home, Manchester – Comfort Food Heaven In The Northern Quarter

Waking up in a Macclesfield hotel with a slight hangover after a fantastic night – but perhaps one too many glasses of wine – at ‘The Lord Clyde‘, there was only one thing on my mind; A breakfast burrito. Specifically a Luck Lust Liquor & Burn breakfast burrito. So you can imagine my horror when I learned that they no longer serve …

A Delicious Breakfast At Delicieux Bolton With Healing Powers!

Delicieux Bolton

Having been invited to popup bar ‘Aperol Spritz Social’ in Spinningfields last night where I was contractually obligated to drink many complimentary cocktails I was feeling somewhat delicate this morning. I remembered being impressed by the breakfast menu on my last trip to Delicieux so decided to check it out and see if they can fix poorly heads. Starting with a …

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

This was the 5th stop on my epic London weekender and whilst all of the other places were new to me, some with Michelin stars and big name chefs behind them it was Dishoom who I’d already visited last year that I was perhaps most excited about. When I revisit places I usually want to sample different things from the …

A Better Breakfast At ‘Leaf On Bold Street’, Liverpool

I’ve had many a big night out in Liverpool which required a full English breakfast the next morning. Despite being a food geek (obviously) and if i’m honest a bit of a food snob, for some reason it has always been at the same old dodgy greasy spoon which makes the losers cafe on The Apprentice look like The Ritz. …

Dishoom, Bombay Breakfast Club, London

Dishoom is a tribute to the famous Bombay Cafés, there were almost four hundred cafés at their peak in the 1960s but now less than 30 remain! Apparently ‘Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites’. After eating at Dishoom I totally feel their pain! We ordered coffe and a Breakfast Lassi, a sort of smoothie made with yoghurt, banana, mango …

Restaurant Sat Bains, Nottingham

Restaurant Sat Bains situated in Nottingham is the most ‘Northern’ of the 13 Two Michelin Star restaurant in England (there is 1 in Scotland) and is just a 90 minute drive away from me which was a welcome change from having to travel to London/South East. The restaurant has 8 of it’s own rooms and since it’s actually located a couple miles outside …
