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.

Heading to Portsmouth? You’re going to want to check this restaurant out because those tacos are hella-good!

Dinner at Bristol’s Honest Burger

Dinner at Bristol’s Honest Burger

A little of what you fancy does you good, and sometimes only a burger will itch that particular food scratch.

I’ve heard so much hype about Honest Burgers and I wanted to try it for so long that when I saw one on a trip to Bristol I knew that would be my spot for dinner. I wanted to try it to see what the fuss was about.

The Bristol branch is on Clare Street, just off Corn Street which is fairly central in the city.

This was my first time at Honest Burgers, take a look at my experience and what I thought, it’s a bit of a mixed bag…

King Arthur’s Round Table in The Great Hall, Winchester

The Great Hall in Winchester is home to one of the greatest symbols of medieval mythology…King Arthur’s Round Table!

Surrounded by the remains of Winchester Castle, built by William the Conquerer no less, it is an iconic piece of the city that’s tucked away at the top of the high street.

It’s definitely another tick off the bucket list for me and I am so glad I found it, I’m not a big history buff but, King Arthur’s table is seriously impressive!

Chihuly Art Exhibition at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens

Chihuly Art Exhibition at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens

It had been a long time since I’d visited Kew Gardens and I had certainly never been to on if its ‘after dark’ events.

American artist Dale Chihuly created some beautiful glass sculptures influenced by flora and fauna which was a natural fit for the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.

This magical exhibition cleverly used colour, light and music to bring a magnificent artistic twist to the landscape while giving exclusive access to the gardens after hours.

I tried my best to capture these stunning installations, take a look…
