Man vs Food Middlesbrough 2As an avid watcher of the hit American show, Man Vs Food, I was excited when I heard we were getting our very own Man Vs Food restaurant right here in Middlesbrough. Boasting food challenges like the ones from the famous TV show along with slightly smaller portions for the less daring, the meat-heavy menu isn’t designed for the faint-hearted. 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

Archipelago London

Now this is a place me and Adam have been looking forward to for months. When we booked our trip to London we knew we wanted to try somewhere a bit different to your usual chain restaurants. At first we were looking at celebrity chef restaurants before deciding to search for ‘unusual places to eat in London’ which is when we stumbled across Archipelago, a very interesting restaurant situated on Cleveland Street in Fitzrovia serving up a range of exciting, exotic foods.
