Brunette and Two Blondes: Disneyland Paris

I’m not sure if you know… but one of the brunette and two blondes is heading to Disneyland Paris! What we didn’t know was that the park is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year!

2017 marks 25 years since the theme park opened its legendary gates for the very first time. When we were sent some amazing information from 365 Tickets we were even more excited (who else is jealous of Minnie’s 150+ dress wardrobe!?).

Donald Russell meat – No meat is more tender or delicious than that of Donald Russell. They’re no ordinary butcher! Our feature cuts of beef are selected and hand cut by Donald Russell, Royal Warrant Holder since 1984 and supplier to H.M. The Queen. Once our beef has been selected, it is carefully matured using traditional methods to bring out its sublime tenderness. This can take from 21-35 days depending on the cut, in order to deepen the meats flavour. Good things come to those who wait.

They provide real food, real flavour, every day and we’re extremely proud of our partnership with them.

 

We want to serve the people of Edinburgh the best Steak in town. Our unique and theatrical venue provides our customers with a truly unforgettable experience. In the past year, we’ve been on an incredibly positive journey of culinary innovation in order to propel ourselves into the next phase of experiential dining. We’re delighted that we’ve achieved a brilliant and intuitive restaurant experience that our customers love.

We boast a theatrical atmosphere, where the chic decor is the stage, the customer the audience and the meat, the main protagonist. Our mission is to achieve a standing ovation.

Steak is a meat lover’s paradise that pays homage to the finest cuts of meat from our highly acclaimed suppliers, including Donald Russell and Simon Howie. Our venue offers customers the chance to revel in a culinary experience that includes succulent and flavoursome meat accompanied by meticulously selected wines, palate fulfilling sides and sauces that offer a taste explosion.”

One of the Blondes reviews The Boozy Cow, Edinburgh

So last week I was starving after work so decided to pop in to The Boozy Cow as I’d never been and had heard great things about it!

Let me start by saying, straight off, that the burgers were outstanding, we had the red hot chilli burger and the chicken chipotle burger – both were absolutely fantastic!

And those chilli beef fries are magic, the best we’ve tried! I’ll be honest, I didn’t love the deep fried pickles -but I’m not a pickle lover so I’m sure they were actually wonderful!

We tried the Mooberry Bluffin cocktails.. when I say ‘tried’ I mean I had four!

It was terribly busy but the staff and service was top notch. I’ll definitely be back, can sense some menu bingo happening here.
