A Weekend in Nuremberg - Take 2

Leave a Comment
I recently returned from my annual trip to Nuremburg to visit one of the besties.

On my last trip we did a lot of sightseeing - so this time we took it easy and spent the majority of the time eating bread, inhaling German chocolate, drinking gin and I don't think I stopped laughing the whole time.

If you find yourself in this pretty, little city here's what I would recommend:

If you want to dance
Head to Rosi Schulz- it's a little bar with saucy images strewn across the walls, strong drinks (Germans don't do measures) and a cracking dj. We danced all night relived our uni days.


If you want a good breakfast
head to Deins & Meins - it's peaceful, homely and the bread was doughy, delicious and everything I wanted and more. A scrumptious breakfast spot!

If you want a good lunch
Head to Katz - the menus everywhere are in German so our translater, April, would give us an idea and we would pick our favourite. It's quite exciting because you don't really know what you're going to get. I had fresh honey and lemon and a scrummy prosciutto and cream cheese toasted sandwich. The perfect hideaway if the weather isn't too great outside.

If you want a burger
Head to Kuhmuhne. The vibe was amazing in here, it was super busy, the music was loud, the wine was flowing and the burgers were incredible. Medium rare cheese burger with a mountain of sweet potato fries - the dream.


If you want a snack
Head to a bakery. Pretzels are the best thing in the world - seasoned with plenty of salt and pepper and best lathered in butter. Grab one with a coffee and take a walk around the city, it's the best way to spend an afternoon. Or if you're like me, lie on the sofa tearing bits off and dipping it in butter...your choice.

If you're feeling arty
Head to Neues Museum. All the shops are closed on a Sunday so it's a great day to walk around and explore. The museum is only €1 on a Sunday so we headed there and got shouted at for standing too close to the paintings. It's a really beautiful space and they have an impressive book shop on the way out that you could get lost in for ages.


If you want good coffee
Head to Bergbrand. It's a lovely spot to sit in the window after a long walk and drink up some good coffee before exploring some more.

It was a short but very sweet trip and the best mini break away from the bustle of London. If you're curious about other fun things to do, I wrote about my trip to Nuremburg last year here.

A Fabulous trip with some fabulous ladies.

See you next year, Germany!


October Foodie Highlights

Summer is over, it's time to start carb loading and get cracking on this winter bod...for warmth, obviously. 

October brought many foodie delights and here are some of my faves:

Walking the length of King's Road and having coffee and cake for breakfast from Nell's - like a said, getting that winter bod ready...

Burger's at The Natural Kitchen near Baker Street. Although the service wasn't great, the veggie burger certainly was. 

I had a fleeting work visit to Manchester, it was my first time there and although I almost froze to death, I managed to stumble across the Manchester Food Festival on the way home which made me a very happy piggy indeed. I had a Halloumi and grilled veg toastie from these lovely guys. 

Peckham Brunching - read about it here.

Like every month, I consumed alot of coffee. This month's best ones were Holborn Grind and Rapha in Spitalfields - those cyclists know how to do good coffee.

Discovering Bailey's Pumpkin Spice and making scrumptious, boozy, hot chocolates. Recipe here.

Having the best fish and chips in London from The Fish Co in Leicester Square. A Fry-day feast at it's finest.

Trying Bao in Soho for the first, and definitely not last, time. Read about it here.

Heading back to Swansea for a much needed rest and roast dinner.

Of course a Joe's Ice Cream had to be done too. 

Heading to the Kensington Farmer's Market and eating alotalot of pasta - still managed to fit some brownie in too because what's savory without a bit of sweet?

Making the most amazing red Thai curry with a wonderful selection from the Wing Yip store - See the recipe here.

Tortilla bowls of goodness at Wholefoods Kensington - officially the most dreamiest food shop ever.

So as I roll into November, pray for my waistline. The festive season is practically here which means there's a lot of Quality Street and mince pies to be had, and I can't say no.
