Portly Eats | Edmundo Lounge | Bury St Edmunds, UK

A couple of weeks back I went to see the new Star Wars movie (I loved it). Before that though, I was in need of something slightly more interesting than ramming a bucket of popcorn in my face in the dark. Meeting my friend MJ, we headed to Edmundo Lounge, just off the market square…

Portly Eats | Brunch at The Senate | Cambridge, UK

On a chilly and wet morning we made our way across market square in Cambridge to The Senate. A restaurant I have walked by thousands of times, tucked away next to St Mary’s in the city centre. The Senate is a small place with warm and welcoming staff that seated us and gave us our…

Portly Eats | Trinity | Cambridge, UK

Portly Eats | Doppelganger Burgers | Co Fifteen, Cambridge, UK

A vegan burger who would have thunk it? It turns out that they are pretty damn good my mother has been on record on the BBC saying that she is ‘Vegan Curious’ in as much as she is intrigued by the flavour combinations and how it all works, and so it was my turn.  Doppelganger…

Portly Eats | Smokeworks | Cambridge, UK

I’ve been to Smokeworks before I love it. It’s one of my don’t look at me restaurants. What this means is it’s one of those places where I can never decide what to have and therefore order most of the menu and devour everything (Don’t look at me…)  Last week, looking for a change from…

Portly Eats | Jack’s Gelato | Cambridge, UK

Who doesn’t love Gelato? Jack’s Gelato has been a Cambridge favourite since 2010. I may be late to the game here but I’ve been countless times and feel a need to share this epic Ice Cream parlour. Jack’s has some fantastic Gelato made from the freshest ingredients and a menu of flavours to kill for….

Portly Eats | Novi | Cambridge, UK

Novi has been on my list of places to eat for a good while now, so along with the delightful Haley Bell we went to investigate. Novi is on Regent steet in Cambridge, it has a compact menu on one piece of paper. That for me is a good sign, I hate it when you…

Portly Eats | Food Park Night Market | Cambridge, UK

This weekend I went to Food Park’s final Night Market of the year. I’ll be honest I made an unashamed pig of myself and I don’t care I had the best evening!   First on the list of food to be devoured was Fired Up Pizza. We made our way throught enticing smells and many…
