They say everyone has a best selling novel in them or a Hollywood blockbusting screenplay. I suppose for food writers it must be the perfect review but for that I guess you’d need the perfect experience. I had that last night at a little Turkish restaurant just up the road from us. So here we … Continue reading Review: Enver’s Turkish Restaurant – I Cry Openly (with joy) About Food 😥
We last visited Silver Plate Restaurant, the venue on the campus of Sheffield College catering department, in Feb for lunch . We were back tonight for their monthly gourmet "Wine and Dine" night, a four course tasting menu with optional wine flight. Firstly, I've got to praise the seasoning on every dish we ate on … Continue reading Review: Silver Plate Restaurant – As Meatloaf Nearly said: “🎶Three Out of Four Ain’t Bad🎶”
If you've ever read any of my other posts, you'll know I can sometimes be a teeny weeny bit critical of Italian restaurants in the UK. So when my mother in-law decided that she wanted her leap year birthday special meal to be an Italian one I was apprehensive. Why? Because we happened to be … Continue reading Review: Gianni’s Scarborough – How an Italian in the UK SHOULD be!
We all know that, in all honesty, the finest way to eat Fish'n'Chips is to eat them out of the paper (sadly not newspaper any more) and definitely not out of one of those poncy, square boxes with Fish'n'Chips written on the top (why write Fish'n'Chips on the top? I KNOW what I've bloody well … Continue reading Review: Rennards, Scarborough – Because Sometimes You Just CAN’T Eat Them Out of the Paper
After my last post, I thought it right to look at a another classic type of Portuguese eatery which, if you went by English understanding, you could also miss out on to your loss. Portugal has many places dubbed "Snack Bars" which might cause Brits looking for a substantial meal to pass by. But, in … Continue reading And Talking of Fine Portuguese Food…..
Lemmy decided we needed a post Christmas break. What with all the feasting, fornicating and farting we pagans do around Yule, it's most welcome. A nice chillax, only a quarter moon so no worries about her dragging a mangled corpse into the hotel room in the middle of the night. Bliss. Portugal, its Algarve region … Continue reading Review: Seasons, Sao Rafael, Albufeira – A Classic Example of Never Judging a Book by its Cover.
Head up Abbeydale Road in Sheffield, around the old Picture Palace and blink at the wrong moment and you'll be past Apna Lahore and maybe non the wiser, and that would be a crying shame if you consider yourself a lover of true sub continent food. I'm on a mission here to change that. From … Continue reading Review: Apna Lahore – If Carlsberg did Asian Food….
My Gran taught me to cook. Oh my mum added bits, I worked in a 2 AA Rosette kitchen; appeared on Masterchef and ran my own gastropub for seven years but my Gran taught me to cook. Both my parents worked so, as was the way back in the late 60s and early 70s, I … Continue reading Leg Meyt, Tayters and a Crust – A Winter’s Tale of Me and a Pie.
It's been a while since we visited No Name, a quirky little twenty cover, at an absolute push if you've got a Schwarzenegger with a shoehorn at the door, place in the fashionable Crookes area of Sheffield. Small in size it may be, but definitely not on flavour as I wrote about after our first … Continue reading Review: No Name – The Food Plays its Own Symphony..No Help Needed!
In a culinary world that seems to be overflowing with "authentic" restaurants but which, in reality, are parts of huge chains that means your meal is the same bland, un-authentic pap whether you're eating it in Nuneaton or Nandover (no typo). It's a welcome change therefore when you hear of the opening of a small, … Continue reading Review: Grazie Restaurant Sheffield. Mamma Mia!- Grazie Mille Vito E Piacere
