tastecard presents TWO4ONE: The pop-up restaurant for solo diners.

Just you, fried chicken and a mirror. And it wasn't as strange as it sounds, we promise. The idea. Valentine’s Day is a day designed for the loved-up, the other-halves, the married and the secret admirers. It’s a day to tell everyone how much you love, appreciate and can’t live without someone, usually through an over-priced bunch of roses and soppy card. But tastecard wanted to flip the big V-Day on its head to focus on the most loveable [...]

The YO! menu explained

Known for their delicious sushi rolls, there's a lot more to YO! these days than just maki, uramaki and temaki. So, if you're a sushi-sceptical, there's plenty to fill that hole with.

Plus, half of the menu is hot and a third is vegan, meaning there's something for every mouth. With 2 for 1 across all dishes, 5 days a week, there's even [...]
