Turtle Bay, Blackburn

I admit to being a bit snooty about some restaurant chains; turning my nose up at faux Italian names and microwaved tapas. Tried once and never to return.  However not all chains are created equal. Wahaca, Wagamama and Pho for example, are all places I happily revisit. And as of this week I add Turtle Bay to that list.

I’d heard good things about Turtle Bay, but we’d just not made it into one. Then a new branch opened  and we were invited to try a taste of the Caribbean for ourselves at Turtle Bay Blackburn.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been into Blackburn centre and it is looking very smart with the newly created cathedral quarter looking great.Turtle Bay Blackburn // GoodEggFoodie Read More

Butternut squash soup with tomato and sweet corn

Sunshine in a bowl!

When I was in Las Vegas we had a great meal downtown in a very cool Mexican place, La Comida. I ordered  camaron del golfo which were delicious shrimp and chorizo on a bed of butternut squash, tomato and corn. 

It was the vegetables which I loved the most, and not just because I was at the end of a week without much fruit or veg in my diet! They were lightly roasted and gently seasoned so the sweetness still shone through. When I came home, I wanted to recreate this, but I also realised that it would make some awesome soup. Read More

Breakfast at Worsley Park Marriot Hotel

Eating out is something we are lucky enough to be able to do regularly; whether it’s a quick local sushi tea when a freezer dive hasn’t defrosted or a Saturday ‘date night’ somewhere special. But what we don’t ever do is breakfast out.

To tempt me out for breakfast, it would have to be somewhere fairly close (I wake up hangry some days!), good choice and different to what I’d do at home (bowl of porridge or cereal, maybe toast when I’ve a bit more time).Worsley Park Marriot Hotel // GoodEggFoodie Read More

While having no intention of becoming vegetarians, we are always looking at ways to cut down our meat consumption and get more veg into our diets.
