Yutaka Vegetarian Two Course Dinner Date Review: October 2017
Blogging HQ received a batch of lovely Yutaka goodies, that included the sushi kit for 2, silken tofu, wasabi peas, sesame seeds, Japanese style curry kit and some of the lovely Chings champion soybean noodles, to create an authentic Japanese vegetarian two course dinner date meal.
The Super Sushi kit for two includes a recipe booklet, boil in the bag rice, seasoning, nori sheets, ginger, wasabi paste, soya sauce and a rolling mat. Make your date interactive and roll out the fun times with your other half.
It’s time to get your noodle on and make Katsu curry with a twist. Katsu is usually served with rice, but I fancied some of Chings nice noodles. Lightly fry the tofu and then mix with the Katsu sauce. To finish sprinkle with some of the sesame seeds and there you have it a Japanese inspired mouth-watering main for two!

Christmas season ahead and out comes the mulled wine, but why not try a new trend and have a mouth-watering mulled gin instead? The Gin Queen, a single grain premium gin handcrafted in Scotland, made the perfect festive tasty tipple. Warm, cosy, smooth and lip-smackingly sensational.
Thai Taste Review: October 2017
Passionate about Thailand’s food, people and culture, the brands founders worked with Thai chefs in Thailand, so that they could offer you a range of premium products delivered direct to your door, where you can create your own authentic Thai tastiness. Another plus is that their products have no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives and do not add MSG.

Founded and located in the slums of Bangkok, in 1978 by an ambitious slum dweller Prateep Hata, the Duang Prateep foundation meaning ‘Flame of Hope’, delivers education, happiness and hope to those in need.

The beautiful, bold, Be – Impossible Manchester, located in an enviable position on Peter Street, have opened their theatrical doors, that has a 280 cover bar and restaurant space, a gin possible nest and the theatre of dreams, which awaits your arrival.
Décor was an eclectic mix of the quirky, unusual and the contemporary. With a mix of high ceilings with decadent chandeliers, chrome accessories, lanterns, wood tree bases and retro records.
We began our journey with a classic porn star martini shaken up with Russian standard, butterscotch liqueur, passion fruit, vanilla, pineapple and lemon finished with some fizzy prosecco. Let tasty taco time comment with the Greek Good filled with feta, avocado, black bean and salsa rossa. also, the Asian Spice stuffed with silken tofu, cucumber, Chinese leaf spring onion, chilli, soya and ginger. Also, loving the lush handmade crispy duck spring rolls with plum and schezwan sauce.
Breakout Room Manchester High Street Review: October 2017
Located in the quirky, eclectic northern quarter hub lies a quizzical challenge, that will get your blood pumping, heart racing and test your mind to the max. Number 36 an eerie black door set the atmosphere and tone for a gaming adventure. The lovely Liv our game master provided an enthusiastic introduction and set the scene for the ‘Vacancy’ room we were about to enter.
We checked into Breakout High Street, and prepared ourselves for a stay like no other. Exhausted and energies low after a long journey, the Crimson Lake Motel provided shelter from the rain and some basic comfort for the night to recharge our batteries. How bad can it be right, just for one night? However, things soon take a worryingly frightful turn, as all doors are locked and there appears to be no immediate way of escape.
We had 60 minutes, to work in our team through a maze of mental mind challenges, clues, puzzles and locks, to escape or except our fate. Communications and clues are displayed through a TV and this game also has a mic where Liv could hear our every word – eek no pressure then! Just keep calm and carry on…This unique immersive, entertaining and electrifying experience has twists and turns around every corner. No spoilers, but this is not a single room game – exciting stuff!
Close, oh so close…we nearly broke out! Welcome to the Crimson Lake Motel. You check in, but you NEVER check out…Check to see if they have any vacancies for a Manchester stay you will never forget.
Thank you for reading 😊
Côte Manchester Vegetarian Menu Review: October 2017
Magnificent Manchester Côte Brasserie, located on St Mary’s Street, is a fabulous family friendly French brasserie with all the elegance and charm of a quaint, rustic and rural, French village eatery with a twist of contemporary and classy city chic. Think Brittany meets Gers with a hint of Paris.
Awaiting our arrival, the amazing Ashleigh seated us in a light filled booth space, with wonderful windows opening onto the city streets. A homely hearty hub, from which to watch the world go by and observe the city dwellers eclectic tastes and styles. Carlos, our server, whom I have previously met, had no need to polish up his waiter skills, as he provided super slick, stress-free and sensational service as usual – a real pro!
