Bohns Best Burgers, Nottingham City Centre

We’re going all the way from Indonesia to the land of Stars and Stripes as we say goodbye to Nada Budaya and hello to Bohns Best Burgers underneath Brewdog, in Hockley. If you thought the name of this bbq burger joint is pronounced like ‘bones’ then you would be very silly indeed, Bohns actually rhymes… Continue reading Bohns Best Burgers, Nottingham City Centre

Lanzhou beef noodles, Nottingham City Centre

Buckle up kids, it’s hidden gem time! Lanzhou noodles just popped up on market street one day, unassuming and with no fanfare. But it caught our eye and we were curious, especially after seeing an old Chinese gentleman hand pulling noodles in the window. This had the promise of super (souper) authentic Chinese noodles and… Continue reading Lanzhou beef noodles, Nottingham City Centre

Merchants at the Lace Market Hotel – new menu with Luke Holland

Long time favourites Merchants not only have a new menu, but an entirely new chef! Luke Holland has taken the helm and the overhauled menus look promising with Michelin star ambition; fine dining indeed! We tried the 5-course tasting menu, which goes for £45 per person and each dish is inspired by Chef Luke Holland’s… Continue reading Merchants at the Lace Market Hotel – new menu with Luke Holland

Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham City Centre

Despite living in Nottingham for many years, we had never visited Jamie’s Italian until now. We hadn’t heard great things, but Sexy Mamma in Hockley isn’t living up to it’s initial levels of ‘wowzer’ of late, and we had an O2 Priority voucher code for a second main course for a quid. We decided to… Continue reading Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham City Centre

Kar-O-Bar, Nottingham City Centre

Following recent visits to Bundobust in Manchester and Leeds, Indian street food is a current favourite of ours. So, when we saw that a new Hockley restaurant had opened on Goose Gate serving just that, it shot to the top of our Must-try List. Kar-O-Bar is situated where Boozy Bones used to be and Jim’s… Continue reading Kar-O-Bar, Nottingham City Centre

Sushimania, Chapel Bar Nottingham City Centre

We entered Sushimania with the sole intention of putting them out of business. The all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant recently opened on Chapel Bar and has been on our hit list ever since – we both like sushi and reckon we can eat a lot of it. Unlike some all you can eat restaurants, this sushi is… Continue reading Sushimania, Chapel Bar Nottingham City Centre

Tipsy Afternoon Tea at Revolution, Cornerhouse

We were surprised to receive an invite to review the afternoon tea at Revolution (you know you’re Notts when you call it new Revs!) The bar is best known for it’s hen party atmosphere and crazy vodkas, not really the kind of place that you’d first consider for a relaxing, leisurely afternoon tea. It costs… Continue reading Tipsy Afternoon Tea at Revolution, Cornerhouse

Las Iguanas, Nottingham City Centre

We were curious after seeing Las Iguanas launched a new menu on social media so decided to head down to a restaurant we’ve previously disliked. Funnily enough, we found ourselves accidentally sat next to a food blogger event that we weren’t actually invited to. Awkward. Trying to suppress the flashbacks of many a disappointing work… Continue reading Las Iguanas, Nottingham City Centre

Cafe Coco Tang, Nottingham City Centre

Tucked away down Byard Lane, you’d be hard pushed to have noticed the opening of Coco Tang nightclub’s sister venture Cafe Coco Tang. With speciality coffee, oriental bakes, cocktails and a Vietnamese kitchen in an achingly hipster setting, there’s something new to discover with every one of their impressively kitsch Instagram posts. Cartwheel cafe are… Continue reading Cafe Coco Tang, Nottingham City Centre

Belgo, Nottingham City Centre

This was our 3rd visit to Belgo, and on both previous visits we had left feeling a bit underwhelmed, in our opinion the seafood didn’t match up to Loch Fyne. However, a 50% off deal in January, a love of mussels and with us keen to eat healthily, we headed there again. There are lots… Continue reading Belgo, Nottingham City Centre

George’s Great British Kitchen, Nottingham City Centre

Determined to eat healthily throughout January, George‘s was actually 5th on our list of places to eat lunch. Due to our first choice places being closed, full up or simply not having much food left (we’re looking at you yet again, Clean Cut Kitchen!) we ended up lunching at George’s assuming that we could get… Continue reading George’s Great British Kitchen, Nottingham City Centre
