Food Review: Vista Mar, Saltburn

This weekend one of my old friends was back home for the weekend. She lives in Saltburn, which is one of my favourite places to walk my dog, and so we decided to meet with our dogs for a walk and something to eat.

Food Review: Mexican Tapas at Bohemia Bistro

I’ve written before about my love for Redcar’s Northern Quarter, but I’m back with yet another post about it! Earlier this year a new café opened up on Cleveland Street, offering vegetarian and vegan breakfast and lunch options. I’ve been for lunch at the Bohemia Yoga Café in the past and thoroughly enjoy their Falafel Fridays. They’ve started to offer evening meals around twice a month as part of the Bohemia Bistro, each with a different theme or cuisine. This weekend I attended the Mexican Tapas bistro night.

Food Review: Barbarossa Wood-Fired Pizza Kitchen and Bar

In recent years the Baker and Bedford Street area of Middlesbrough has transformed into a culinary delight, what with events and companies such as Orange Pip and Songbird Bakery. One of my favourite places to visit around this end of town is Barbarossa Pizza kitchen. I recently revisited and as the food was as good as it always is, I thought I’d dedicate a post to my favourite pizza place.

A Roman Holiday

I love looking back through old photos, and recently stumbled across the pictures from my trip to Rome last year. The trip was my present for my boyfriend’s twenty-first birthday and we spent three nights in June exploring the city. We had an amazing time exploring the city and celebrating both Liam’s birthday and the end of our time at university, as we jetted off just after our last exams. I thought I’d share with you some of our highlights.

Food Review: Lemongrass Thai Cuisine, Redcar

I love living in Redcar, as I’m so close to the beach but also surrounded by beautiful grassy and woodland areas. The town centre is making a comeback with record stores, male and female boutiques and a variety of cocktail bars and micropubs. I’d even go as far to say that Central Park in Redcar makes the best parmo in Teesside, but if you’re not in the mood for one (shocking, I know) the there really aren’t that many other options for food. I caught up with my best friend recently for the first time since Christmas and we decided to go for food and drinks. She’s vegetarian, so I knew that Central Park wouldn’t really cut it, and so we decided on Lemongrass Thai Cuisine. I love Thai food and had a great meal at Thaikhun in the Metro Centre earlier this year. Lemongrass is one of the few restaurants that Redcar has to offer, and so I thought I’d write down my thoughts on this slightly different option.
