Last month I attended an evening hosted by the fantastic team at Tortilla in their intu Victoria Centre store to celebrate their summer special. I’ve eaten at Tortilla in the past and have really enjoyed the food so this event didn’t disappoint. We were hosted by Tortilla’s marketing team who gave us a rundown on the history of the company and all about their food whilst we tucked into chips and dips. And they treated us to frozen margaritas!
We all know that my life pretty much revolves around food. I love that in the centre of Nottingham there is a huge selection of different cuisines and price points so close together. Doesn’t matter if you’re after something super quick and cheap, or a fancy pants sit down meal. Nottingham has it all!
When I heard that the latest addition to the foodie scene was going to be an independent indoor street market I was super excited – especially when the location was revealed. Nottingham Street Food Club is tucked away in the clock tower in the Victoria Centre. And it’s only about 5 minutes away from my workplace!
I’m a firm believer that if you have a feeling about something you should listen to your gut instincts. But today I want to talk about literally listening to your gut.
The last year or so I’ve been on a mission to lose some weight, tone up and feel more positive about my appearance. Aside from this, my biggest motivator is my health. For two-to-three years I’ve been suffering from digestion issues, which are today still undiagnosed. Last year things got much worse and I found myself at the doctors talking with a stranger about my poo whilst she prodded my stomach. Who says a girl doesn’t have a glamourous life?!
When a restaurant launch invite popped into my inbox that listed mojitos on tap, you better know I said yes. New restaurants seem to be opening up in Nottingham every other day, and Son of Steak is the latest addition to Trinity Square. After seeing the venue being put together when out on lunch breaks, I was really excited to see what the restaurant had to offer the ever expanding Nottingham food scene.
Very often when walking through the centre of Nottingham, my eye has been drawn to a large orange cow. That’s the window of Griddle & Shake in the Lace Market, and this week I finally got my bum in there to try their menu.
Griddle & Shake – as you might guess from the name – is all about burgers and milkshakes. They offer top quality food fast, but in a lovely relaxed sit-down venue. An all-inclusive menu means that your visit will be easy even with dietary requirements – gluten free, dairy free, vegans and veggies are all catered for!
