YO! Sushi is one of my favourite places to go for food, in fact, sushi is one of my favourite foods in general. I absolutely live for Salmon Nigiri and Maki Rolls – I’m actually drooling thinking about them whilst writing this post. I’ve tried to make sushi at home in the past and it wasn’t necessarily a complete disaster, but I was definitely in need of some expert advice if I’m going to make it again!
It doesn’t seem to matter which city I go to, I nearly always find myself in Revolution. Delicious food, bloody lovely cocktails and always a great atmosphere- you can never go wrong!
That’s why I was so excited when I was invited along to a blogger event at the opening of their new bar in Durham. Based in the heart of the city on North Road, the bar is spread out over two floors. Downstairs you have the ground floor restaurant with comfy booths, a large bar and a dance floor to keep you going til the early hours of the morning. If you head upstairs, you’ll find their amazing heated rooftop terrace which overlooks Durham Castle, Cathedral and the river. It’s beautiful!
A new hidden gem has opened its doors in Durham, and it’s nothing like anywhere you’ve been before.
Located on Hallgarth Street, The Rabbit Hole may look like a ramshackle antique shop but once you make your way through its speakeasy style side door, just off Mavin Street, you’re transported back to a bygone era of decadence and indulgence.
Over the past year or so, there have been a number of great new restaurants opening across Sunderland city centre and if you’re like me and still haven’t got round to trying a lot of them, then Restaurant Week is your perfect opportunity!
Organised by Sunderland BID, Sunderland Restaurant Week takes place from the 8th to the 16th September and sees over 30 restaurants and cafes take part, with dining deals on offer for as little as £5pp.
If there’s one thing that I’m not necessarily confident about when it comes to my blogging, it’s my photography.
At the moment I use my iPhone as a camera at events, and I always worry that my photos might not be good enough to post. Luckily I was invited along to the Viking Photography Masterclass at The Botanist, Newcastle, and was able to pick up some handy tips in order to improve my skills!
Eating at YO! Sushi is an experience in itself, but this week they’ve totally upped their game by bringing the art of Chindogu, aka ‘useless inventions’, to a select few of their restaurants!
So I’ve been away a lot over the past few months, and have only just got round to visiting Zucchini Pasta Bar in Newcastle. Better late than never, right?
