Vegan Wrap
The Green Lab
This week we got a delivery from a new NQ business beetroot wrap stuffed with a load of vegan treats such as avocado and artichoke and it was deeeeelicious! I immediately felt the healthiest I possibly ever have and it counteracted all the Stella’s I had the night before. – India Morris 

 

Pint of Guinness & Packet of Space Raiders 
The Bay Horse Tavern
Despite my name, Guinness is actually my favourite drink. It’s just pawfect (sorry). – Stella Shells Morris

 

Savoy Cabbage 
Elnecot
I bobbed down to shoot some of the new lunch dishes at Elnecot and it’s not that often I get to tuck in but this time, I couldn’t resist. This cabbage dish smelt delicious and it’s not something I would always go for but I’m glad I had the chance to taste because WOWZA. It’s both earthy and fresh and just gobble gobble gobble delicious. – Petr Kaiser 

 

Art On A Plate
Edinburgh Castle

This week I put my faith in the chefs over at Edinburgh Castle for a blind 5-course tasting menu. Ok, I don’t know exactly what this was, and I know it looks more like a Terrarium that you’d buy from Urban Outfitters rather than a meal but MY GOD – this was good. These were carrot & goats cheese macaroons sat on some kind of bed of grain served with a fruity type of taco concoction. Modern art mate. – Jale Hardy

 

Chinese Barbeque Chicken 
Tattu

Chinese Barbeque Chicken from Tattu, you just can’t beat it there. It comes with chipotle, sweet soy and pickled cucumber. I’ve actually had a dream about it every night since. Come back to me, my love. – Gabrielle Ball

 

Sushi Platter
Dive NQ
The salmon and avocado rolls at Dive are quickly becoming my favourite thing. Shovelling them into my face as quickly as I can so no one else gets to eat any is my usual tactic. They tasted even better knowing it was 50% off food too. Bloody bargain & delicious. – Charlotte Warrior
