Chao Chao, West Bridgford

Asian street food has become increasingly popular recently, with a few local places popping up. We love it, so were more than excited to receive an invite to visit fairly new Chao Chao in West Bridgford to try some of their southeast Asian inspired dishes.

Mowgli Indian Street Food, Nottingham City Centre

First of all, the amount of hilarious Jungle Book puns that easily present themselves in this review are often irresistible. For this, we apologise in advance. For a fairly new brand, Mowgli has grown really quickly with locations in Birmingham, Liverpool, Oxford and Manchester.

Kar-O-Bar, Nottingham City Centre

Bar Iberico breakfast, Nottingham City Centre 

We’ve visited Bar Iberico a couple of times now but never really got the hype. We found it a bit too pricey to eat a la carte when compared to the express deal at the Iberico restaurant, which we adore.  However, anyone that follows their Instagram will know that their breakfast dishes always look drool-worthy… Continue reading Bar Iberico breakfast, Nottingham City Centre
