Summer holiday is meant to travel. We were blessed with sunny and good weather when we traveled to Bristol for a one day trip. Bristol is a city located on the south west of England, approximately 2 hours by train from London. From Cardiff, the train journey only takes about an hour.
Their two course lunch menu was priced at £6.95. It was quite a good deal and we ordered two sets of it. Being a soup lover, ys just can’t resist ordering the roasted cherry tomato and basil soup as his starter. The soup was thick and filling compared to other tomato soups, it was nice and flavourful. The bread accompanying the soup was fantastic, the crust was nice and crispy and the bread was so soft and fluffy. It was a good starter.
I opted for the nachos with chipotle salsa, sour cream and jalapeño peppers. This was excellent, the best dish we’ve tried in this restaurant. The tortilla chips were served warm topped with melted cheese and it was crispy when eaten, the salsa sauce was nice and appetising while the jalapeño peppers, though not too spicy, added a tinge of excitement to the entire dish. It was intensely delicious.
For our mains, we had a pitta bread filled with char-grilled chicken and rocket and chips. This tasted really good as well, the bread was nice and crusty while the char-grilled chicken was well-grilled with coal and it provides a nice contrast with the vegetables.
However, the penne pasta with mushrooms, spicy tomato sauce and melting cheese was a little disappointing. Despite generous serving of mushrooms, tomato and cheese, the pasta tasted bland and the sauce was a little watery, as evidenced from the photo. Perhaps it is better to order their char-grilled dishes instead of pastas.
Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience. Service was excellent and the environment was good. Wouldn’t mind visiting this restaurant again when we are craving for char-grilled food. For more information about this restaurant, please find out from their official website.
