Wagamama Trafford Centre – VIP Preview Lunch

Last month, hubby, the little one and I were lucky enough to get an exclusive VIP sneak preview of Wagamama’s largest restaurant, opening at the Trafford Centre. Wagamama is easily one of my favourite places to eat (I still remember my first ever visit to their restaurant in Kensington when they first opened), so I jumped at the chance.

When approaching the restaurant, it looks modern and chic and it’s only when you walk in, that you realise how big it is. It’s a tardis, with 295 seats across two floors, the trademark open kitchen spanning the length of the ground floor and a new feature…you can sit and eat at the kitchen and watch the chefs hard at work.Continue reading

Burger and Lobster Manchester

Having eaten at the Soho branch in London before, I was so excited when I heard that Burger and Lobster was opening a branch in Manchester and popped my name on their mailing list straight away.

The restaurant is huge – taking over a stunning old building on King Street in Manchester (right by Jamie’s Italian). I mean it’s seriously vast! We went on a Friday night and as expected, the place was packed with happy diners wearing bibs and happily tucking into their lobster. Continue reading

An Ode to Pasta

If you’ve read my blog, particularly my food and travel posts, you’ll know that I LOVE pasta! It is genuinely my favourite food in the world and I could happily eat it every day (and nearly do!).

I also a little bit love Jamie Oliver (just a little bit) and Jamie’s Italian is one of my go-to places for seriously good fresh pasta. The pasta is always made fresh on site and there’s an interesting variety, including some you definitely don’t see on your average supermarket shelf. You can check out my review of Jamie’s in Manchester for more thoughts on that.Continue reading
