The Royal Yacht Britannia, Leith

This was another one of our tourist days when my parents visited. Given the yacht was not in commission when I was alive, I did not know much about it but it was actually pretty interesting! The best part though was the cafe up on the top deck as this was where all of the … Continue reading The Royal Yacht Britannia, Leith

Giggling Squid, Norwich

Every time I go "home" there are a handful of snazzy new restaurants in Norwich that I want to try out but unfortunately I rarely manage to eat out at more than two each visit.   The Giggling Squid was one of those lucky restaurants I tried last summer and is one we then went … Continue reading Giggling Squid, Norwich

The staff here are … Continue reading Mimi’s Bakehouse, Leith

Bread Meats Bread, Glasgow

I have been to Bread Meats Bread in Edinburgh before and thought I would try out the one in Glasgow! The Glasgow venue is a lot smaller than the Edinburgh one which doesn't bode well when you can't make reservations and you want to visit during the normal lunch hours. We waited about 10 minutes … Continue reading Bread Meats Bread, Glasgow

Bolognese Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are still relatively new to me and I am still trying out different fillings and ways of cooking them but last night's creation was one of the good ones. Originally, the plan was to have spaghetti bolognese but after a bad few days food wise I decided to substitute the pasta for a … Continue reading Bolognese Stuffed Peppers
