I went to a fantastic Yelp event a couple of weeks ago, held at the Staying Cool penthouse at the Rotunda. The views from there are fantastic! We drank cider, watched the Eurovision semi-final and ate pizza from Barebones Pizza. I went for chicken and mushroom. The base was deliciously crisp and I loved the creamy cheese too.
Mission Burrito opened a new store in Brindley Place last week and to celebrate they gave away 500 Burritos! As I was on half term and bored of writing reports, I headed down to claim my free lunch.
They have a self-serve setup where you choose your fillings. I went for chicken, rice, pinto beans with bacon, sour cream and medium sauce.
They also have tacos and salad bowls.
It was a pretty cool environment to grab a quick and reasonably priced lunch.
I made this cod wrapped in parma ham with roasted veg. Recipe from here: http://www.womanmagazine.co.uk/food/roasted-cod-parma-ha-peppers-recipe/
I love roasted veg instead of potatoes- this was such a delicious meal!
I also had tacos from Muy Loco Tacos but didn't get a picture!
The recent Yelp book club was held at The Victoria, just behind the Alexandra Theatre. They do seriously great burgers so I had this blue cheese one. The beef was beautiful- really peppery and perfect with the blue cheese.
New Pimm's Cider Cup
When I first heard about Pimm's Cider Cup I knew I had to try it. I love cider...and I love Pimm's...what could go wrong?
This is a great combination. Sweet and fruity but not sugary, the cucumber really balances the flavours. This is one of my #drinksofthesummer ! (Edd and I are determined to make that hashtag happen!)
