Restaurant review: Mumbai, Stainforth
We weren’t expecting too much it has to be said but it was actually one of the nicest Indian meals we’ve had in a long time.
Restaurant review: The Carpenters Arms, Fangfoss
A weekend camping sojourn with the kids to the foot of the Wolds near Pocklington led our rumbling tums to this quaint village pub in the wonderfully-named Fangfoss.
Restaurant review: Taybarns, Barnsley
We’re not used to all-you-can-eat buffets here in good old blighty. Well, up north at any rate. Sure we get the odd Chinese or Indian buffet dotted around and Pizza Hut do an all-you-can-eat lunch but they’re all quite specialised. Taybarns therefore are aiming at a distinct market niche that feels like a direct import from the US.
Restaurant review: The Old Moor Tavern, Broomhill
Don’t they say that Yorkshire folk are the most welcoming in the World? If that’s the case, someone ought to tell the Landlord of the Old Moor in Broomhill near Barnsley.
Restaurant review: El Piano, York
Threading through this cosmopolitan, free-spirited city are a maze of cobbled streets and closeted buildings and with it, an endless array of culinary and other delights waiting to be discovered. Look deeply enough and you’ll find El Piano, located on Grape Lane, one of the oldest quarters in town still standing.
Restaurant review: Nando’s, Sheffield
I wanted to hate Nando’s, I really did. I don’t know why either and I can only put it down to an irrepresible yet irrational urge to dislike anything that’s remotely corporate, uniform and homogenous.
Restaurant review: Relish, Doncaster
Taking advantage of a fleeting pre-theatre meal at Relish was our first visit to this modern, funky eatery on East Laith Gate in Doncaster.
Restaurant review: Jamie’s Italian, Covent Garden
You’ve got to love Jamie Oliver, he’s built himself a pretty good brand name and whether it’s his accessible books, TV shows or funky tableware, there’s a certain ‘quality’ to whatever he does.
Restaurant review: Turkuaz, Doncaster
Nether Hall Road is Doncaster’s equivalent to Chinatown in London, albeit on a much smaller scale. A high concentration of restaurants and eateries are bunched together in a small area so it takes some doing to stand out from the crowd, so to speak. Luckily, Turkuaz has a lot going for it and despite all the nearby competitors, it’s actually Zest, that thoroughly-modern Mediterranean diner located several streets away that perhaps draws the more obvious comparisons.
Restaurant review: Thaal, Darfield
The menu (and decor) is a reflection of the changing nature of modern Indian cuisine. No doubt the influence of Atul Kochhar and his contemporaries is spreading and that’s got to be a good thing. Not only that, there was no single dish over £10.00. Even better. While these kinds of up-market curry-houses are cropping up all over London and surrounding areas, here in the North of England, they are less common so in the spirit of Carling lager, it makes a refreshing change. Even the much-lauded Aagrah chain will have to sit up and take notice here.
The Sauce Vierge in this dish makes it sound complicated to make but in reality, a vierge (French for ‘virgin’) is incredibly simple and really only consists of olive oil,…
I first wrote about the 45-second steak on my now-defunct Helium account and in that, I spoke of how to cook a steak in 45-seconds flat. Ok, it’s a bit…
Or, as we might say in the North of England, Chicken in a bag. Coq au Vin is that most traditional of retro Bistro dishes and I must admit, I…
