The Wriggle app offers deals at a wide range of independent eateries across the city. These deals have a variety of timeframes and price levels attached. You just choose your preferred option, pay through the app and turn up for your food with the code you've been sent. Simple!
Many of the options cater for two people, so they can provide a great excuse to take somebody out or simply to get out and about with a friend. They're really veggie friendly too, so I'm a happy girl.
The best thing about Wriggle for me though (apart from the money saving) is that it's a great way to discover new places. I think we're all guilty of falling into tried and tested routines, getting content in a food rut and having a narrow list of places we return to. This is a shame as there are gazillions of great places out there, we just need to have the incentive to step inside. The Wriggle app has opened the door to several great new places to me which I've previously simply passed by. One significant bonus is that Wriggle painstakingly hand pick who they promote, you won't be seeing any 'normal' or 'boring' eateries here!
Wednesday lunch date with Ross.
We both had 2 x any large slices which was £7 for both of us instead of £10!Proven in the city centre opened late last year and is a great option for a cheap lunchtime bite. These are not your normal sized pizza slices either - I would normally scoff at the idea of ordering only one pizza slice at a time but I was so full after ours! We both tried the vegan option of sweet potato, grated beetroot and crispy kale and I also had a slice of roasted aubergine and goats cheese. Ross opted for a slice of spiced chicken, bacon and avocado with an additional side of homemade guac - it's the perfect option for grabbing a super cheap snack but without compromising on the taste.
The Arts House
We had two toasties, side salads and coffee for £9.95 instead of £15.20.
I've been to the Arts House a few times, it's slap bang in the middle of Stokes Croft and is super cosy and comfy inside. They've also got a tiny intimate venue downstairs which I've been to some cool events at before. We went for mozzarella, pesto and tomato toasties which were so filling. As it was a sunny day when we visited we made use of the outside seating to catch some rays and watch the world go by.
We had any 2 Pan-Asian mains and 1 portion of dumplings for £11.95 instead of £16.50.
This little Asian fusion cafe hasn't been open for long but it's just beside where I used to catch the bus to uni so I've been wanting to try it out for a while. We chose the bibimbap and tofu salad box for our mains and it was super healthy, yummy and fresh. Tamsyn was a particular fan of the peanut sprinkles in the salad box and I loved the dumplings - I think it was somehow the first time I had tried them (!?)
I even came back the week after to sample the salad box deal which was £3.95 instead of £5.
Just Ground Coffee Kiosk
Shopping trip with Georgie and Lydia.
We had three iced coffees for £4.50 instead of £9.
Just ground is a little blue kiosk placed next to the fountains in the centre of town. I picked up three iced coffees for half price to spur us on our morning shopping trip.
Wise Bean CaféWork lunch date with Tamsyn. Unfortunately no sexy mid-munch mug shot with this one soz.
We both had organic soup with raw veg salad which was £9.90 for both of us rather than £12.
This year I discovered that I am the most productive whilst working in cafes (a fact that my bank balance is not such a fan of) and for productive vibes this little cafe is a perfect find!! Situated on a corner in Stokes Croft (opposite That Thing and on the turning to Lakota) I have no idea why I hadn't clocked it before. It's super light and airy, with good wifi and all the food and drink is mega healthy and delicious... I would definitely recommend their carrot juice which I had after my latte.
£20.45 total savings, 3 new eateries discovered and 10 lunches all for less than £50!
