I absolutely LOVE Wriggle. Since downloading it, I’ve used it soo many times but I realised I was often going for the same thing. Last weekend, I decided it was time to branch out and try something new!
Wriggle is an app that’s currently available in Bristol, Brighton and Cardiff. It features local, independent eateries and watering holes with exclusive offers and deals. It’s SUCH a good way to find new places to eat, plus save a few pennies. I am a creature of habit, so I’m often tempted by the same old food. That’s what I love so much about Wriggle – it shows me places I would never have otherwise thought of. Plus, the deals are always ace.
As it was a super sunny, beautiful warm day in Brighton we decided to head out to the beach before going somewhere completely new to eat.
After this, we decided to choose the Seven Stars, which I’d not heard of or been to before this. It’s a little craft beer and gin pub in the South Lanes – although I wasn’t drinking that day, Connor was v impressed to find a Beavertown beer he’d never tried! Also, kind of random, but I really liked that they had paper straws. I love drinking from a straw, but as they’re so bad for the environment, I really appreciate when pubs have paper straws!
The offer on Wriggle was £7.00 for Moules Marinière, cooked in white wine and garlic with a side of skin on fries. If your mouth isn’t watering, there’s something wrong with you. Simply reading the offer on Wriggle gave me vivid flashbacks of mussels we’d eaten in the summer in France, and I knew we had to try it.
I was not disappointed. The portion was really generous and the sauce was TO DIE FOR. Connor, being the classy man that he is, ended up putting his entire bowl of chips in his leftover sauce…
For £7.00, it was SO WORTH IT, and a great way to have a cheap date. The Moules Marinière by Croustillant D at the Seven Stars was absoutely delicious and I would definitely go back. Wriggle has yet to fail me, and if you haven’t already, I urge you to download the app or try the website.
