INDIAN food. It’s the best, except maybe for my nan’s Welshcakes. Anyway, with me being home and bored on a Monday night there was little else to do except call Flynn and see if he and Becky fancied an Indian. And they did.

Zam Zam’s has got some rave reviews on tripadvisor.co.uk and we’ve eaten there a few times, although Ev is yet to try it. Monday is three-courses-for-a-tenner-night and you can’t argue with that. It was crowded downstairs so we were taken to the much quieter upstairs […]
ONE of Ev’s colleagues told her about the Starling Diner, so today we headed back to our old stomping grounds of Belmont Shore to try it out. We got there around 10am and it was packed out, but at least parking was easy. After waiting 10 minutes for seats we were shown to our table and looked over the menu.
The diner is on the small side but they’ve put plenty of tables inside. Both of us wanted brekkies so I went for the applewood smoked bacon and cheddar scramble with potatoes and baguette slices:
Oooo, lovely. The bacon is mixed in with the […]
I KNOW this doesn’t really count as a diner, but where else was I supposed to put it? The Sussex Teapot turns out to be about 10 minutes from our house and serves classic British dishes such as scones and jam, beans on toast, pie & mash and lots and lots of tea.
Here’s my choice for dinner: steak and kidney pie, mushy peas and mashed potatoes, which I’m 99% sure were made from Smash:
The mushy peas needed a bit of salt but were worthy of a British chip shop, but the pie was great. Instead of the semi-soggy pastry […]
THIS is one of those places we’ve driven past a few times but never stopped at. Well, until today. It has all the promise of being a great diner and looks awesome - it even matches my Mini’s roof. So this morning, after being diverted all over Belmont Shore thanks to a fire at the Marina Pacifica mall, we gave up on going to Hof’s Hut and headed for the Best Place Cafe.
It’s a big place, clean and tidy and there’s counter-service only. The menu is large Specials are advertised on the windows and I chose the ham steak with three […]
THANKS to the Fantastic Cafe having a line of customers stretching out the door, we decided to give this little place a shot on Sunday afternoon. Both of us are big fans of crêpes thanks to La Crêperie on 2nd Street so it would be interesting to see how the Delightful Crêpes Cafe compared.
It’s nicely decorated inside and well-lit. After enquiring at the counter, we were told there was waiter service so we took a seated and waited. And waited. And waited. After 10 minutes of being waiting and being blinded by the sunlight coming through the window, we decided to change […]
