Mi Cocina Mexican Food, Winchester

Mi Cocina Mexican Food, Winchester

Mi Cocina is one of the good things to have come out of the lockdown of 2020.

The new Mexican food takeaway has popped up at Bridge Street House in Winchester and I am a BIG fan. The city seriously lacks this type of cuisine. I am always in the mood for Mexican, one of my all time favourite foods. 🇲🇽

The food is simply incredible, take a look…

Brunch at Home Coffee, Southsea

Brunch at Home Coffee, Southsea

Portsmouth is blessed to be a coffee shop mecca on the south coast. There’s tons of beautiful independent coffee shops spread out sporadically throughout the graffiti lined streets of Southsea.

A while ago I found Home Coffee, a gorgeous understated little place near the start of Albert Road in Southsea. And, its name does it justice, it feels like you’re at home.

This place oozes cosy coffee shop vibes. I love people watching and spending slow mornings reading, writing and drinking coffee. And, this is the place to do it!

People pop in and out for takeaways, there are other people pottering about their mornings and there’s the perfect window seat to watch the world go by.

Here’s a look at Home Coffee…

Bottomless Tacos at Bonita’s in Portsmouth

17You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes…

For the ever indecisive of us, and yes I class myself within this group, bottomless tacos, where you can pick any of and as many of the tacos as you like, is the DREAM!

And, that’s where Bonita’s Southsea steps in with it’s Taco Tuesday offer – it corners the market and conquers it. Actually it stamps all over the competition unapologetically while telling you you’re pretty and feeding you tacos.

Bonita’s has landed bringing its own blend of fusion Mexican food, humorous cocktails and Beyonce Brunches to the South Coast.

Dinner at The Old Forge in Otterbourne

Dinner at The Old Forge in Otterbourne

ad* Nestled in the leafy Hampshire village of Otterbourne is the beautiful country pub and restaurant The Old Forge.

It’s recently just opened after undergoing a major transformation and I fell in love with the dreamy velvet, rich tones and metallic finishing touches.

This in addition to the open fireplaces, exposed brickwork and low beamed ceilings make it the perfect winter hideaway!

The mix of traditional English pub and luxury interior is a winning combination and I am so into its cosy vibes. With the festive season kicking in, it’s good to have a few places like up your sleeve when you’re looking for places to visit with friends and family.

I was invited to take a look around and try the new menu, take a look…
