Portly Eats | Pizza at Othersyde | Cambridge, UK

When lockdown eased and we all came out of our houses blinking in the sunlight, the first thing on most people’s minds was… Where can we go to eat!?  Where better to go in a socially distanced new normal than a bar that’s outside, you can book your own table and all orders are taken…

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 | The Old Crown | Girton, Cambridge, UK

Last week I was very kindly invited to have dinner at The Old Crown, Girton.  After an extensive refurbishment earlier in the year, The ‘New’ Old Crown is stylishly designed and very welcoming. Wandering in on a drizzled filled evening, we ordered drinks at the bar and settled at a table there to peruse the…

Portly Eats | The One Bull | Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK

Last week I was taken to The One Bull in Bury St Edmunds. Before I go on, please take the time to go and eat there, the food was fantastic and they serve some epic beer from the Brewshed people too! We started our meal with a drink at the bar, before being shown to…

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 | Trinity | Cambridge, UK

Over the festive period I was lucky enough to go to the fabulous Trinity. It was for a Christmas party and we were not disappointed. We had all pre-ordered our food as is common with large numbers of people descending upon a restaurant at one of the busiest times of the year. I was a…

Portly Eats | Lunch | All Bar One, Cambridge, UK

The other week in a bid to get away from lunch ‘al desko’ I was invited by the Lovely Charlotte, (give her a follow she’s top!) for lunch at All-Bar-One in Cambridge. Once seated and having browsed the menu we went for the sharing platter and for myself a ‘side’ of Chicken Quesadilla.  The mezze…

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 | Co. | Cherry Hinton, Cambridge

Last week I was very kindly invited to the menu launch at Co Fifteen in Cherry Hinton. We were treated to some fabulous creations from Chef Emma (@compassionatekiwi). I’m not vegan or even vegetarian myself but I am always curious about what can be done with a purely plant based menu. The range of different…
