The Burger Joint

I think it was my second year of uni when I first discovered The Burger Joint. Their burgers were the best way to start the night and man, I still have dreams about their sweet potato fries!

I love when friends come to visit. You get to do all those things you mean to do, but never quite get round to, and to see your city through someone else’s eyes, making it fresh and new again. My bestie Ciara arrived on Friday night and we had a whale of the time, sitting chatting on the harbourside as night fell, exploring Gloucester Road on a Saturday morning and wandering around Blaise Castle on a hot but fun dog walk. And there was no better way to finish off the visit than with a trip to the newly-opened Turtle Bay, just next door on Cheltenham Road, to see what it had to offer. View Full Post
