Yakinori: hanging out with sushi

Anyone tried to make sushi at home?  I have – and it is tricky! I managed to salvage half of it to look remotely like sushi, but a lot of it ended up in a messy pile. I think I should leave it to the experts… If you want to see actually how it is…

Tsukemono: a pop up of pickled things

The fab Japanese Soul food from Tsukemono first came to my attention at a recent yoga brunch, where we were spoilt with mass sharing dishes of tofu, Japanese gravalax and their signature colourful pickled things (Tsukemono translates into “pickled things”. Cute!) I was immediately in love with their experimental approach to Japanese food. The main takeaway from the brunch was however that…

Root: Celebrating the mighty vegetable

We live in a time when change is constant. People change locations, diet plans, jobs. I have therefore stayed in my job for a relatively long time. The reason? The people!

Burger Theory: the creative burger people

Burger Theory has long been one of my emergency hangover cures via Deliveroo. You just can’t beat the combo of meat, bread and sauce to get you through a bad time. Add a side of kimchi fries covered with more meat and you are on your way through the nausea to a more content food…

BOX-E – Celebrating being us!

I am a big fan of celebrating; whether there is a specific reason or just celebrating surviving life that week (it can be tricky sometimes!) The chance to get together with fab friends, eat delicious food and toast with a glass of fizz is one of my favourite things in life. If you are also…

Dinewithi – Totterdown Canteen combo

Pop up restaurants are a great way to experience fabulous food in Bristol. One of my personal faves is Dinewithi.

Pho: You can pho your own way…

(Good luck getting the song out of your head…..) There is quite the competition in Bristol for pho. We can’t seem to get en0ugh of the flavoursome Vietnamese soup. I recently tried out Pho on Corn Street and kind of fell in love with it. Why… You can get a bib! I am a renowned…

It can be tricky to get away from it all when you live in a city. Luckily we have a little haven hidden away in Bristol: The Lido. This is one of my favourite places to treat myself or the lovely people in my life. My actual best thing to do is to buy one of…
