Brunch at the Cosy Club in Norwich

I heard that the Cosy Club was coming to Norwich and they were taking over the old Natwest bank on London St. We went to check out their vegan brunch and I have only great things to say!

Scrambled Tofu

This is one of those vegan staples I never really got round to attempting to make at home. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten it either. Most places I’ve been to that offered a vegan brunch usually produced a fry up with vegan sausages – which is fine, I love that. But I’m intrigued to try new things as well and the scrambled tofu did not disappoint.

The dish is made up of:

Scrambled tofu with roasted tomatoes, peppers, kale, lovage pesto, tomato tapenade and toasted seeds on toasted puccia.

I added a potato rosti for an additional 80p (bargain) and I’m very glad I did because it was delicious and it bumped up the breakfast a bit more.

The decor

Sadly I didn’t take any photos of this but one day I would love to sneak in when no one is there and photograph it all. What can I say? It’s very hipster. Big chandeliers, loud wallpaper, photos of birds and fish lining the walls. Everything screamed Overkill and that’s my kind of venue.

Mousehold Heath, Norwich, December

This may end up being posted in January but I’m writing this in that awkward period between Christmas and New Year where no one knows what day of the week it is. After a little bit of social media scheduling, I got a headache and decided to get out and go for a walk. I rarely go to Mousehold Heath in Norwich so thought I’d have a little walk around and see what I could photograph – barely anything, as it turns out, because despite this being an ideal habitat for a variety of species, I rarely actually manage to see anything at Mousehold. Is it because it’s so popular with dog walkers and kids on mountain bikes that the wildlife daren’t show its face? I’m aware that it’s winter and there is less to see but the concerning thing is that I barely¬†heard any birds either.

Anyway, I did get a few photos, including an action shot of a squirrel racing up a tree so not a waste of time in the end.
