Meze Lounge Starters - Calamari Squid Rings and Turkish Sausage

I really love trying food from different corners of the world so you bet I was pleased when I heard there was a Turkish restaurant opening up in Middlesbrough. Meze Lounge is a restaurant I’d been meaning to try since it opened back in 2016 and it has continued to receive rave reviews. Unfortunately my first visit to the wasn’t until my birthday last year, and I can’t believe I’d actually left it that long. I went back a couple of weekends ago so Adam could experience the food in all its glory since he missed out the first time around.  View Post

Cocktails at The Cow Shed Middlesbrough

A couple of months ago I was sat in Uno Momentos on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough when I spotted two new shops over the road, one called The Cow Shed and another called One 59. It looked like they were making the finishing touches to both of the venues as they weren’t quite open yet so I decided to do a bit of digging when I got home. I found out the One 59 is a bar and The Cow Shed is a gourmet burger shack and they’re actually attached to one another. As I’ve mentioned before, Adam and I have been on the hunt for the best burger so we were eager to give this one a try.

Cheese, Wine and Beer Sign

During a trip to London last month, one of the places that were at the top of our list to visit was The Cheese Bar in Camden. After seeing numerous videos on Facebook of bubbling cheese fondue and stretchy cheese pulls coming from the same eatery in London, we decided we had to hunt it down. After arriving in Camden one morning, Adam and I set our sights on The Cheese Bar nestled cosily within the Stables Market of Camden which happens to be an absolute foodies haven!  View Post

Bistrot Pierre Bar Middlesbrough

Bistrot Pierre kindly invited me along to visit their new Middlesbrough branch to sample their delectable menu that brings a taste of France to the North East. Serving up beautiful home cooked food that is freshly prepared daily using carefully sourced ingredients from local producers and artisan French producers and suppliers, it’s difficult to tell it’s a chain restaurant when you step foot into the French bistrot.  View Post
