Zaks Authentic American Diner: Norwich (Waterside)

Ever since John and I went to America for the first time 3 years ago I have been desperate to find somewhere local that does comparable food. I tried one American Diner chain a few years ago and have since never tried anywhere else because it was so bad. All I wanted was some nice American pancakes and instead I got scotch pancakes from a packet. Anyway, I had heard really good things about Zaks in Norwich and just recently I went for dinner with a friend to see what all of the fuss was about. To start with, we

Restaurant review: Turtle Bay Norwich

Back in August I wrote about going to the amazing Turtle Bay Press Preview. It was my first experience with Caribbean food and I couldn’t wait to go back.

Opening night review: Giggling Squid Norwich

Please be warned, there will be quite a few photos in this post! Upon arrival we were welcomed with a glass of prosecco, which was wonderful!  Neither me or my mum really drink very much although you may not believe that if you read my Turtle Bay Press Evening Review! We arrived quite early but there was a fair amount of people there already. Amongst the

Turtle Bay Press Preview

On Thursday evening I was lucky enough to attend the Turtle Bay Press Preview for the new Norwich restaurant! This was the first night out I have had since Erin was born so needless to say I was a bit nervous! I had to get a picture of us together before heading out with Kirsty from The Overflowing Library. (Make sure you enter the amazing giveaway I have running right now.
