As blogger perks go, having a feast laid on for you by Byron ranks pretty high.
So when I was invited to celebrate Byron’s 10th birthday and National Burger Day, I bit their hand off – brioche bun and all.
We’ve had an explosion of fantastic restaurants opening in Nottingham over the last few years, and the latest tasty offering is bringing something a little different to the city.
Madrid can feel a little overwhelming at times – particularly if, like most people, you’re only there for a few days. But it’s a laid-back place where you can experience a little bit of everything a Spanish city has to offer. Here are my picks of the best ways to experience Madrid like a true Madrileño.
Eating in Valencia is a delight, and you can get a decent meal for two with a drink for 40 euros. Of course you can spend a lot more too, but the cheap price of wine really helps to keep the cost down.
Unlike lots of places I’ve visited where you’ve really needed a guide book to find good food, there are decent looking restaurants down almost every side street. Here are some places we enjoyed.
Although me and Effi were in on the act, neither of us could make it on the day. The lovely Sarah Ann was generous enough to send me a huge box of swag, so I decided to stage my very own Blogger Picnic in the Garden with my favourite freebies.
If you live in Nottingham, Annie’s Burger Shack will need no introduction. The humongous burgers are a city staple and getting a table at Annie’s often requires a small act of wizardry.
I’ve been to Annie’s about half a dozen times now, and I’ve enjoyed munching my way through their huge menu. From the roast dinner burger to a burger topped with pancakes, bacon and maple syrup, these burgers are anything but boring.
They’re not as Instagram friendly as their stylish almond counterparts, but these coconut macaroons are so easy to make.
