Why go on a Food Tour? eat walk talk bristol

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

So much changes In Bristol that almost weekly there is something different to see and taste so I though I'd take a chance to remind you of the great reasons to take a food tour and really get to know the city. Its hard to keep up, a new restaurant every week and Wapping Wharf, a resurgent Old City, Pop Ups and Street Food - if you don't have your finger on the pulse you will miss so much. I've been lucky enough to go on lots of food tours as I've travelled the world and have met lots of 'food tourers' on the way. After the brief introductions; where are you from? Are you enjoying your vacation? it quickly comes…

St Nicholas Market Foodie Heaven Eat Walk Talk Bristol

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

First in a series of Market updates ... When I arrived in Bristol 12 years ago if you wanted to visit a street food market you took a pilgrimage to St Nicholas Market but even then the food area was hidden amongst an eclectic mix of textiles, drug paraphernalia and ye olde photos. Now we are blessed with so many foodie hangouts we are spoiled for choice as the growth of 'street food', the decline of those terrible 'triangle sandwiches' and the need to get back to desk sharpish have seen an explosion of locations in Bristol to get great food. Watch out for further market write ups including Temple Quay, Finzel's Reach, Whiteladies Road, BS5market and Tobacco Factory but for…

Brian's Burgers - Eat Walk Talk Bristol Top 5 Independents

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

I used to think that Bristol was all about pizza, after all we have some of the best independent pizza joints in the UK, but maybe that's about to change with two new burger joints getting the carnivores well and truly excited. Asado Asado one of the two newest kids on the burger block having just opened in Colston Yard in what was the previous Rosemarino site. I'd only come across Asado related to open fire cooking in Argentina but i'm reliably informed its Spanish for BBQ. The guys here have created a fun colourful restaurant with great music (check out their Spotify playlists) and a relaxed vibe with the high quality burgers crafted from Soil Association Organic and high welfare ingredients…

Dinner and Drinks...eat walk talk bristol food tour

Monday, July 24th, 2017

It's been a very busy summer so we've been touring lots and writing less but we're taking a well-earned weekend break so finally a chance to write a quick update. There's been a lot going on, right now its Harbour fest but it's been a festival of new restaurant openings (and closings) over the last couple of months. Notable openings include New Burger / BBQ joints in Asado and Hubbox, neighbourhood Italian Bomboloni, Caribbean Croft and a plethora of openings at Wapping Wharf part 2 including favourites Pickled Brisket, Spuntino, Cantina, Salt and Malt and Gopals Curry Shack. There are many more openings to come with Cargo 2.5 now signed up and its becoming increasingly difficult to keep the food visits up and…

No More Nut Roast....

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

No more nut roast, mushroom risotto or some goats cheese monstrosity... the days when restaurants chucked some generic tasteless gloop onto their menu in order to badge themselves 'veggie friendly' are well and truly over. Mrs Eatwalktalkbristol is definitely a vegetarian and so across time I've increasingly learned just how good vegetarian cooking can be with some true high points being Tian, Vienna; a one Michelin star restaurant and Nobelhart and Schmutzig, Berlin (what those guys can do with a mushroom) and closer to home Casa Mia, one Michelin Star, Bulrush and Adelina Yard all producing some stunning dishes. Bristol increasingly has a reputation for an amazing food and the vegetarian cafes and restaurants stand up incredibly well here. Here are…

The Mall Pub Clifton Launch Event

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the relaunch event for the Mall Pub Clifton Village. I have to admit to not being so much a pub person with images of my youth dominated by regulars propping up the bar and I mean literally 'propping up', smoke and packets of KP peanuts shared by all and sundry in those little pots on the bar. Thankfully The Mall couldn't be further from that image. The newly refurbished interior was smart and comfortable and thankfully not over designed with that casual attempt to ensure every chair and table was mismatched not present here. They serve a wide range of beer and ciders (what else would you expect) but…

Contemporary 'Fine' Dining - Eat Walk Talk Bristol Recommends....

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Our food tour guests come full of excitement for Bristol and leave full of food but sometimes they are hungry for more, so we have created our little black book of recommendations for guests to visit during their time in Bristol. It takes a lot to get into the book and its even harder to stay there but over our next few blog posts we'll highlight our favourite restaurants in Bristol by cuisine and category. The only way into the book is to have great food, drink and service delivered consistently; oh and as one member of our team has strayed to the dark side of Vegetarianism something they can eat too. We absolutely live for Bristol's street food scene and…

Who ate all the Pies - Relaunch event at The Stable

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Bristol probably has the fastest growing food scene in the UK and whilst it seems somewhere new pops up pretty much everyday some of our existing bars and restaurants work hard to keep up. This is why Bristol is great for our Eat Walk Talk Food Tours! I'm lucky enough to have been invited to the relaunch of The Stable on the Harbourside. I have to admit to being a first time customer for the Stable as whilst I love the Harbourside its more of a lunch place for me usually at the market as it gets a bit loud and crowded later on. I'm obviously old but you of course will be younger and cooler than me. They have 17…

Lunch Like a Local - Eat Walk Talk Bristol Food Tour

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

We have a bit of a reputation in the UK for long hours and hard work with a trip to the pub at the end of the day. Lunch being a terrible sandwich in one of those triangular boxes, some crisps (chips if you are American) and a fizzy drink that probably comes from the local supermarket as part of the special deal. Thankfully the growth of street food and local markets in the UK has really changed up the options and you no longer have to suffer that sad sandwich if you get out of the office and see whats on its metaphorical door step. We love lunch on our Eat walk talk Bristol food tour so here are some…
