The Muddler | Newcastle | Lunch Review

Me and Mrs. Cool had one of our date days in Newcastle recently and this involved lunch at The Muddler on Grey Street. It's fairly new, opening at the end of last year and there had been a bit of a buzz about it. We love Asian food and The Muddler serves Pan-Asian so there is loads to choose from and you're not tied down to one type of asian cuisine.

Haggis Scotch Eggs

Burns' Night is over for another year and as alway I have loads of Haggis left over. Only me and Harry like haggis in our house so even with one haggis we usually only end up using half. I decided this year to make Haggis Scotch Eggs with the left overs. I've tried to make scotch eggs only once before and it was a bit of a disaster, the yolk was hard but the sausage was undercooked. This time I learned from my mistakes and have to say I was pretty impressed with these ones. For these you will need.

Red's True Barbecue | Eldon Square | Newcastle

A few years ago we went to a play that included a song simply called "MMMEEEAAATTT!!!" and I always think of that song when we go to a Barbecue place. I've been to Red's True Barbecue a few times and I'm always impressed with the food and the service and I'm happy to report this time was spot on again.

Project Bond: The Spy Who Loved Me

"James, I need you."
"So does England."

In 1977 Roger Moore returned for his 3rd outing as 007 in what would become the most expensive James Bond film up to that point, The Spy Who Loved Me. Also returning where Bernard Lee as M, Desmond Llewellyn as Q and Lois Maxwell as Moneypenny. The Bond Girl this time is Barbera Bach as sexy Russian agent Anya Amasova with the ludicrous codename Agent XXX. The villains here are Curd J├╝rgens as Stromberg and the debut of Richard Kiel as Jaws.

Coffee & Kin | Great British Roasts

Last year I collaborated with a local coffee company, Coffee & Kin, and fell in love with their coffee. So much so that I subscribed to their monthly coffee bean subscription. I've been getting a bag of beans each month for almost a year now and it's a nice little treat to myself just after payday.

The Oats and Eggs Pantry | Brunch Review

My New Years Resolution is to cut back on my calorie intake. Not strictly a *whispers* diet, just making healthier choices. In January I'm cutting out bread and pop but with no bread this is making breakfast difficult. Mrs. Cool recommended we try The Oats and Eggs Pantry on Chillingham Road in Heaton, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Oats and Eggs Pantry provides fresh healthy, food and locally roasted coffee.
