La Bottega Linka is one of the best places in Prague for breakfast or brunch (and even lunch actually, we went there twice on our trip!). It’s a seriously cool industrial-feeling cafe with incredible food.
We discovered this place on Instagram, naturally, and headed there for our first meal when we’d landed in Prague. We needed lunch! For our first meal we had a picnic style lunch of different salads and then bread and freshly cut meats and cheese. They have a deli in the cafe with all of these ready to go and everything looked amazing. We had such a delicious lunch and we spied this ‘Sweet Breakfast’ on the menu so decided to book for our last morning in Prague.
I’m going to kick this off by saying whoever invented halloumi is seriously special. I mean, those Greeks know how to do cheese. And that’s exactly what we started our dinner at Around The World with. Around The World is part of the new Bierkeller complex that’s hit up Friar Lane in Notts city centre. (It’s in the old Walkabout for anyone who’s bad with street names!) Around The World is a bar with Bierkeller German Stein and Hotdog bar below and a Shooters sports bar above it. The complex has literally everything for a fun, cheap night out with surprisingly good food.
As a food blogger I’m always on the look out for things that are a little different or intriguing, this blog lists a selection of restaurants that are a little weirder than others you may expect. Their quirkiness could come from décor, food or just generally the way they work. I hope you find these suggestions inspire you to try something a little different this weekend!
What’s the difference between a pancake and a crepe? Apparently, pancakes are thicker, fluffier and include a raising agent, so our pancakes that we usually call pancakes are actually crepes. Fun facts for Pancake Day! Anyway, we know we’re all still going to call them pancakes and we’re all going to eat them on the 28th February and they’re going to be damn tasty.
We headed out to Browns Brasserie Nottingham for a weekend celebration for my birthday and went out for it and tried their limited edition Tender Beef menu which our awesome waiter, Raj, was telling us was only available for a few months until they change it to lamb (which we’ll definitely be going back to try FYI).
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…
There’s always so much conversation about Valentine’s Day, is it romantic, is it just marketing ploys to get you to spend money, is it a big deal in your relationship, is it not? SO MUCH CHAT. Everyone seems to have such a strong opinion on it and I don’t see why people can’t just let it wash over them and take it for the novelty cuteness that it is.
‘Diet’ desserts are usually pretty dire, am I right? I mean we all know fruit salad isn’t a dessert and yoghurt and berries just don’t cut it sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I love my yoghurt and berries and a bit of dark chocolate but sometimes you just need something that is tasty and artificially sweet (in a good way!). That cake or ice-cream sweet is hard to beat if you’re running on pure cravings so I like to find puddings that are in no way clean eating but don’t break the calorie bank. Treats like these are hard to find!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Said, someone once and now everyone’s stolen their saying. But, still, it is super important to eat breakfast because you’ve essentially been ‘fasting’ all night whilst you’ve been asleep. I don’t believe that you need to eat at a certain time, like an hour after waking, or anything like that because I’ve not seen evidence that it really matters. I usually eat about 1-1.5 hours after waking up on weekdays and it’s definitely within 30 mins on weekends when showering before eating is 100% not necessary.
