Oscar’s saves New Year’s Day in York

As someone who isn’t a huge fan of spending New Year’s Eve out (Town is way too busy and full of people who don’t know how to act in pubs) we decided to go out for a few drinks and a meal on New Year’s Day. Unfortunately what we hadn’t realised is that most places…

Zap into Zaap Thai York

Here at Foodie Friends we are both big fans of Thai food. Therefore, when a new fast food restaurant promising authentic Thai street food opened in York we jumped at the chance to visit.
