My New Favourite Restaurant: Blue Sakura

My New Favourite Restaurant: Blue Sakura

Leeds
If you know me or have read my 'hunt for the best sushi in Leeds' blog post, you'll know that sushi is my favourite food, especially when I'm hungover. So when I saw that an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant was opening in Leeds, I literally squealed with excitement and eagerly awaited the next time that a hangover, a sushi craving and a bottomless appetite would grace my presence.

Hi, I'm Nell. I’m a Leeds based travel blogger creating content to inspire you to make the most of your weekends, limited annual leave and hard-earned cash by writing about part-time, mid-budget travel. Here you'll find posts about city breaks, hiking trips and tales of food and wine.

Eating My Way Around Manchester

Eating My Way Around Manchester

Manchester
Despite Manchester only being an hour away from home, I pretty much know nothing about it. So when Billy whisked me away for the weekend to see Jersey Boys at the theatre (which was great by the way, definitely recommend!) I took the opportunity to experience the city in the best way I know how... via my taste buds.
Where to Eat in Vilnius and Trakai

Where to Eat in Vilnius and Trakai

Vilnius
If you've read my most recent post, you'll already know that I spent my birthday weekend in Vilnius wandering snowy streets, eating constantly and drinking plenty of mulled wine. Having not done much research about Vilnius, I was surprised by how much there was to see and do, but also by the fantastic food scene. We ate a LOT on this trip, mainly because minus 11 is pretty cold so required plenty of stops to warm up! The below might look like a list of every single place I stopped, but honestly these are just the highlights!

Before I get into this post I have to admit that I don't have many pictures to share. As it was a once in a lifetime kind of meal, I wanted to fully immerse myself in the experience rather than worry about getting the right shot of each of the 14 (yes, 14!!!) courses. Sometimes you have to forget about the gram and enjoy the moment.
A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

Ingleborough
This weekend Billy and I had a day out to White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. As a Christmas present to Billy I created a year of fun, which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event etc. to do together once a month for the next year... Well this was January's treat! If you're looking for a day out in Yorkshire and a great place to eat afterwards, read on!
A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

London
After spending a few festive days with my family in Buckinghamshire, I took the opportunity to spend the day being a tourist in London on my way back up to Leeds. With so much to see and do in this wonderful (and somewhat overwhelming) city, the hardest part was actually planning the day and, of course, where to have lunch!
The Restaurant You Have To Visit in Budapest

The Restaurant You Have To Visit in Budapest

Budapest
Budapest isn't the kind of place that I would have thought to visit for the restaurant scene, and someone had even told me that the food was the least favourite part of their trip when they visited. But every single meal I had during my long weekend in Budapest was excellent. There was one restaurant in particular that blew me away, so here's me raving about it.
A Hunt for the Best Sushi in Leeds

A Hunt for the Best Sushi in Leeds

Leeds
I love sushi, I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and not get sick of it (I think). It's also my go-to hangover food, which a lot of people find odd, but the freshness of the fish, the stodgy rice and the salty soy sauce offer the perfect combination for recovering from having one too many. I also love Leeds and everything it has to offer, but recently the sushi game in this wonderful city is starting to lack. Here's why:

We are absolutely spoilt for restaurants in Leeds. Whichever cuisine you fancy and whatever your budget, the issue is never finding a suitable place to dine but rather deciding between the endless options. On top of that, there seems to be somewhere new opening every week, so even when you think you've tried it all you're suddenly no longer an expert. To help with matters, I've come up with a list of my favourite Leeds restaurants. If you're visiting for the weekend or you're hungry and can't decide where to eat, read on!
