Yip another visit, and I couldn’t wait as I needed another Charcoals fix.

For me this is my all time favourite Indian restaurant, every visit the service is 10/10 and also the food is bursting with flavour and amazingly tasty.

The Food…

Starter

Chai Tea

IMG_4725

Not really a starter but I did order it when I went in, rather than my normal cola as I wanted to give this tea a shot.

Meat Samosa £3.25
Lamb minced and spices rolled in a pastry

Well there would be a photo here but I was hungry and guess what? I forgot to take it (sorry)

Anyway……I would normally go for the vegetable samosa, but today I thought lets try the meat one. Lamb for me is hit and miss, some dishes i like it, some I don’t but I wanted to be different today.

This was so so good, and it was that good I visited here 3 days later for my works night out and had this again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Main Course

Charcoals Goldie £9.95 & Peshwari Naan £3.50
7 Lentils cooked together in chefs special spices, chicken or lamb.

This is my all time favourite naan, I love the flavour and it works well with nearly every dish.

I had this dish ages ago and thought lets have it again, as I remember I really liked it so hopefully it was the same today.

This was a little spicy but just a little kick nothing major, and wow the flavours were amazing. Its very hard to describe, but all I can say is mmmmm and this with the naan worked very well.

Shocker am back again, but why not every time I have been its always been a really enjoyable night and enjoyable food….so lets see will it continue when I try more new items.

The Food…

Jijimi Seafood 5.95
Pan fried vegetable pancake, spring onion, soy sauce

IMG_4615

I was very undecided what to order tonight, I wanted to order a few favs but then again it wouldn’t be much of a review since you could easily see what I thought in a previous one…..so I took one for the team and tried another new dish.

On arrival this looked very good so it was time to tuck in…

For me this was so so, it didn’t have too much flavour so the soy sauce was needed. If you are looking for a nice light dish, this is perfect but for me I need something with a little more flavour.

Thai Prawn Crackers £2.95

IMG_4636

I wanted a little side dish, so I ordered these. The last time I had these were at a Chinese restaurant in town, so I thought I wonder how they are here.

These were very nice, just as good as the ones I have had at the Chinese restaurant. If you like the normal style prawn crackers, give these a shot and am sure these will be your new favourites.

In short a solid 5 out of 5 again!

Until today I had never really heard much about here, and today I was meeting Emma Eats and Weekends with Wendy for brunch.

Unfortunately Wendy couldn’t make it due to unforeseen circumstances, so it was just me and Emma.

IMG_4692

This place is a little off the main street that people would walk on, so it is so easy to miss which is a shame as it’s a really nice.

As you can see from the above photo its very nice inside, and has a really nice and relaxing atmosphere.

The Food…

homemade cheesy beano, spiced red pepper sauce, yoghurt & herbs £8.25

IMG_4686

I have not had a cheese beano in many many years, so when I saw this I had to have it.

This sounded like an interesting take on the beano, so when it arrived and looked as good as you can see in the photo I was hoping it would taste just as good.

This was very very very good, it brought back memories from childhood when I had a beano plus the peppers added that extra flavour.

I would highly recommend this.

Flourless Chocolate Cake, creme fraiche £4.50

IMG_4688

After the beano I was very full, but hey there is no harm in looking at the desert menu right? well yeah…as I ordered the chocolate cake….greedy me

I have a sweet tooth and when I saw this it sounded interesting, flourless? how different could this taste….

This was the best chocolate cake I have had, it was sweet, and very soft and very very moreish!!!! yes I could have easily had another but I didn’t want to be too much of a pig today….more so since it was brunch.

If you love chocolate cake take a trip to here and try it! you will not be disappointed.

I am very glad that Emma recommended here, as this is a little gem that is hidden.

As you would expect by the name “Duck Club” duck does show up a lot on the menu, but there are other dishes to if you are not a big fan.

I look forward to going back and trying more dishes and having more chocolate cake mmmm I am drooling already!

See you soon.
