Today I’ve tried the Chickn Gyros Pitta (which includes chips and salad) and Baklava for dessert from What the Pitta.
Okay, I know this looks like it’s been dropped but it was only folded loosely and upon picking it up, my lack of co-ordination (because I’m Dyspraxic) did not help with that 😆
I really wanted to like this but I found the chickn to be a little too sweet. There was a dire lack of Tsziki dressing, which I was really disappointed by. I ended up adding lots of mayo and some gherkins instead, as it was the best I could do.
The Baklava was the best I have ever eaten, anywhere, which was a wonderful surprise!
I love sushi but was finding it hard to get interesting, vegetarian sushi etc. delivered to East-Central Manchester, until I found Honi Sushi on Deliveroo. They are a London sushi restaurant who have now branched out, up North.
Sea Salted Edamame (they come in the pods so you bite the ends off and squeeze out the beans, a nice thing to occupy yourself with when watching trashy TV), with Spicy Sauce (one little taste made my whole head feel like a volcano!)
Avocado Roll x6
Vegetable Special Roll x 5
Strawberry Cheesecake Mochi (little, squishy balls of heaven)
This is the freshest and most creative veggie sushi I’ve eaten for a long time!
Honi Sushi has had 15% off its entire menu for a while now, which I’m glad about as I hate paying restaurant prices for takeaway (when there is also a minimum order price and delivery charge).
I also recommend Sake, 4 Ashton Rd, Droylesden, Mcr
I’m so glad I’ve come across Ask Italian, a nationwide restaurant chain that has wonderful vegetarian options, a gluten-free pizza and pasta menu, plus a vegan menu.
This is their Non-Gluten Verdure pizza, with mushroom, red pepper, black olives, artichoke, mozzarella and basil (£9.95) You can add any extra topping and a spicy tomato dip to your order for around a quid each.
This has to be the best gluten-free base that I’ve ever tasted. It’s thin, floppy but still slightly crispy, like a traditional Italian base. It doesn’t have that thick, flowery texture that gf takeaway bases have.
Hello lovely people! I recently tried Biffs Vegan Burgers and Wingz – Manchester so here’s what I thought…
I ordered the Bourbon BBQ Wingz (Jackfruit with a sugar cane ‘bone’) and simple Cajun Dusted Sweet Potato Fries, with Bacon Jam for dipping. I can just imagine Peter Kay saying “Bacon Jam!? BACON jam!?” lol
A huge portion of tasty fries arrived and the jam tasted uncannily of bacon!
I just wish the Jackfruit had a slightly more substantial texture, wondering if a chunky mushroom might be better/closer?
I refrained from ordering the more elaborate ‘Filthy Fries’ and slaw on the side, as I already had enough for two meals.
I had to share this awesome tie-dye jumper I bought from NikRik’s Workshop on Etsy. It’s a fairly light jumper so it’s perfect for Spring, chilly Summer evenings (when you don’t have a bloke around who will lend you theirs) and Autumn or layering up in Winter.
I love Cyan and light green as I find them to be the most uplifting colours, especially together. You can imagine how chuffed I was that my hair turned out Cyan, rather than the darker blue I aimed for lol
Today I’m sharing e.l.f Hydrating Coconut Mist (£8) with you. It really is saving my skin and my mood on these absolutely roasting days that we are having in England.
It contains hyaluronic acid, coconut oil, Vit E and B5 to hydrate, soften and sooth.
The mist has kept my skin cool around the house and hydrated even though I’ve been sitting in front of a (surprisingly drying) fan a lot of the time. It also soothes my skin which is prone to redness as a result of mild allergies.
Bonus use as a moisturising setting spray
Earlier I moisturised with e.l.f. day moisturiser and applied their matte foundation (necessary in this heat) which made me look quite flat and meh, so I sprayed the Hydrating mist over the top and still I look fresh faced (with my foundation intact) three hours later!
