Lilo Newport: Chicken Shawarma, Grilled Halloumi Cheese and Chicken Wings.

Today I am going to ‘review’ Lilo Newport, Grill House & Juice Bar.  Lilo Newport is a restaurant/takeaway serving authentic middle eastern food.  The reviews I have read give a positive impression of the restaurant and the food looked good so I gave it a go.

First of all lets discuss what I ordered and how it is described on the menu.

Sawyers Bar and Grill – Magor, Newport: The Ribs and The Pulled Pork Burger

This is the first ‘review’ of an independent restaurant posted on The Munch and Tattle and probably the only one that will be of a restaurant in Newport, South Wales for a long time.  I will review both the ribs and the pulled pork burger from Sawyers Bar and Grill.

 Although there are places to eat in Newport, there aren’t too many stand out places that everyone loves to go for good quality food and in particular, barbecue and grill.

Sawyers Bar and Grill only opened it’s doors on 22nd of August, 2014 and I didn’t wait long to have a go.  Sawyers bar and Grill is really the only place in Newport serving this type of food. Continue reading Sawyers Bar and Grill – Magor, Newport: The Ribs and The Pulled Pork Burger

Cooking: Burger Time!

A couple of days ago I decided that I want to make the best burger possible in my own home.  Inspired by The Beefy Boys (@TheBeefyBoys) and my recent visit to Sawyers Bar and Grill @Sawyersmagor (review here) I gave it a go.

Can Anything Beat the Great Full English Breakfast?

Just recently I made myself the best Full English Breakfast I have ever tasted.  I know that sounds unlikely to you, but I believe everyone makes the best Full English Breakfast, in their own opinion.  Only you know how you like it and nothing else quite steps up to the mark.  Despite there being a massive selection out there for alternatives, most people still choose the Full English Breakfast when they want to indulge.

This had me wondering, is there anything out there that can really rival the great Full English Breakfast?

Top Ten List of Places I Would Like to Eat!

Top Ten places I would like to eat.

I’m sure that just like me, many of you spend most of your time on the internet religiously scrolling through Twitter, salivating because every other Tweet shows images of some incredible burger, tasty ribs or a slowly smoked tender and juicy brisket.  If you don’t,  it’s probably because you are lucky enough to eat this food on a regular basis.  I sit at my desk feeling very hungry and extremely disappointed with my miserable lunch 99% of the time.  This does mean that, until now, I have kept a list of the top ten places I would like to eat in my head.  Some of them are actually very nearby and some are much further afield and will probably stay on my list for a very long time.
