Ten New Restaurants to Try
Monday, 20 Feb 2012
So it seems as if we’ve been eating our way through this city, but with the number of new places popping up, can you really blame us?
We wonder how we’re not in a permanent food coma (or a size 16 by now)!
Lucky for you, we also like sharing, so here are the city’s latest hot tables, delivered to you in Honeycomber’s very first slideshow – (yes, we are excited!)
So now you can take a sneak peek inside each restaurant and see what all the fuss is about.
Enjoy the slideshow and the sneak peek!
