Bar Espana – Chicken and Chips

Bar Espana in Los Boliches is more or less a hole in the wall type of bar and cafe. It was raining and we just wanted some food and a drink without too much fuss. Some days you just can’t be arsed looking for a fancy meal and you just want something simple. I didn’t…

Castle Rock Taproom at East Midlands Airport: Checking out Breakfast

Today we were flying from East Midlands Airport to Malaga and had arrived early for our 9am (ish) flight. We were much faster through security than anticipated so we had plenty of time to grab a breakfast and found ourselves upstairs at the Castle Rock Tap Room & Kitchen. I was pleasantly surprised to find…

Paseo 100 Sport & Soul Bar in Fuengirola is a really decent spot to grab a well priced meal from. Located on the front on Paseo Maritomo they are a Finnish sports bar that serves really tasty food. We popped in on our way back to our apartment for dinner after a bimble along the…

Breakfast Buns at Wells Deli

Wells Deli on the Quay at Wells-next-the-sea is a good spot to grab a cup of tea or coffee and a snack. In our case it was a good find for a breakfast sandwich before we began a bimble along the coast path. On their website they say “Since 2004 Wells Deli have been stuffing…

PBZ in Sheffield: Wuhan Noodles and Braised Chicken Rice

PBZ in Sheffield is located in the New Era complex, an area rapidly developing with Asian food outlets and shops. I first found this place back in 2020 when I was in town hunting down a bowl of Wuhan Hot Dry Noodles (Reganmian) with great success. The story of that and my love for that…

Air Fryer Scotch Eggs

I do love a Scotch egg, a good one anyway, when done well it is a perfect hand held snack. I have tried to cook them in the past with mixed success often limited. But recently I have had a breakthrough while cooking them in an air-fryer. Essentially your scotch egg is a softly boiled…
