Portly Eats | Flammekueche | Amelie Flammekueche, Cambridge, UK

The other week I went to the rather fabulous new food offering in the Grafton Centre, Amelie Flammekueche. This French Fire bread or as I explained it to my friends Alsatian Pizza, (before having to explain its from Alsace and not made from dogs) is fabulous. It is extremely thin dough much like pizza that…

Portly Eats | Sushi Mania | Cambridge, UK

  It’s been in town a while and I have finally managed to get into Sushi Mania and stuff my face with as much sushi as I could fit into it.  Sushi Mania is just next to the bus station in Cambridge, so nice and easy to find. Once sat down we were told how…

Portly Eats | Paradise by way of Kensal Green | London, UK

I headed to London the other weekend for a very important birthday party. The venue ‘Paradise by way of Kensal Green’ I’m terrible in London and get lost virtually all the time, it all looks the same! Anyway, I managed to find Kensal Green on the Tube map and headed underground. After a change at…

Portly Eats | Parker’s Tavern | Cambridge, UK

There’s a new restaurant in town and it’s in the newly refurbished University Arms Hotel.  Parker’s Tavern is offering fabulous food with wonderful views of Parkers Piece.  I went along during their soft opening to see what it was all about. Once greeted and shown to our table we were given water and menus. The…

Portly Eats | Fish ‘n’ Chips | Castaways, Hunstanton, UK

Hidden away underneath the pier in Hunstanton is Castaways.

Portly Eats | Paella | Black Rice VLC, Cambridge Market, UK

You know when it is sunny you don’t really mind how long good food takes? Well I was wandering around town (Cambridge) the other day and overheard the guy on the Black Rice stand saying his Paella would be 20 minutes so I took a seat and waited. Trust me it was more than worth…

Portly Eats | Eggs Benedict | The Ivy Brasserie, Cambridge, UK

Brunch has got to be the best meal to eat out. It is certainly my favourite, and true to form I had my usual brunch fare with added shiny bits on the side because I was dining at The Ivy Brasserie, Cambridge. This recent addition snuggled up to the fabulous Trinity Restaurant in… you guessed…

Portly Eats | Wildwood Sundae | Wildwood, Peterborough, UK

There is something stuck in my head about the word Sunday. I think it’s from a commercial I saw once in America. You know, one of the lower budget ones that scream at you through the T.V. screen?  I’m not sure if it was real or not but at the end it said, rather shouted…
