Food review: Wok & Rice, Hereford

menu

I’ve been going to this Noodle & Rice Bar since Summer 2015 and I order the same dish every time: Egg noodle, Delhi sauce (chili, garlic and coriander) plus veg and Tiger prawns. It is a generous serving and delicious- I’m addicted. It is located on 57-59 Commercial Rd, Hereford HR1 2BP down the hill from the Sixth Form. Definitely recommended!

It is open 7 days a week from 12:00pm – 11:00pm

Pen y Fan, Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales.

Hey guys!

I went to this beautiful part of Wales’ Brecon Beacon National Park called Pen y Fan.

It is an ideal walking and hiking route with a roaming tea stand and ice cream van. There is also a toilet at the base of the peak too.
