Petit Paris Review Nottingham

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and I wanted a family meal with some of my nearest and dearest in a nice setting. I wanted a chilled atmosphere that wasn’t too loud, somewhere we could chat, have some nice wine and also amazing food. I’d seen Petit Paris a lot, simply walked past it and noticed it’s cute Paris-styled sign but never eaten there. But, now I have, I 100% would again!

6 Of The UK’s Best Street Food Markets

With the announcement that Nottingham might be getting its own street food market (yaaaas!), I thought it’d be sweet to round up some of the best street food markets and pop-ups in the UK right now. It’s safe to say that we’re definitely very excited to be getting our very own street food market because it’s something that we feel Notts has been missing for a while. We get the occasional pop-up here and there but nothing as monumental as some of the other street food markets in the UK’s other cities like Manchester and London! Here’s the run-down of the best out there at the moment…

Results With Lucy Blogger Event

So, this is a funny post for me… I set up, managed and ran an awesome (if I do say so myself) blogger event at work for Results With Lucy last week but I also attended it as a local blogger! I thought, why not? I’ll be there anyway and I preferred to get involved with the girls and planned the event to be one that I would enjoy if I was invited to it so I obviously wanted to do it too! It was great to get involved and see blogger events from both sides, the organising, and the attending.

Griddle & Shake Review: Nottingham

Freshly landed in Notts is Griddle & Shake, a seriously cool independent burger company which serves killer dirty burgers, heavenly shakes, chicken wings and beers all with a smile! I’ll give you the low down…

The Burgers

If you’re a burger fan but don’t fancy waiting forever for a table or coming out of a restaurant stinking like a meat-smoker then I’ve got the perfect answer! Griddle & Shake is surprisingly awesome. I say surprisingly because you don’t expect something this good to come out of a Subway-style ordering process. You choose your burger (beef, chicken, tempeh or pulled pork), bun (pretzel or brioche), cheese (American, stilton, cheddar or halloumi), side (we’ll get onto fries later) & drink and pay at the till.
