Toro’s Steakhouse, Leicester

After a long day at a Conference we finally made it to Leicester’s famous Toro’s Steakhouse.   We were well received and seated immediately. Although the Steakhouse was packed to the rafters, with diners. Toro’s has a relaxed almost casual atmosphere with painted pictures of the various steak cuts and a guide to the Steak […]

Cona, Little Germany, Bradford

I remember the days when TV only had 4 channels and my Sundays rotated around watching Italian football and Masterchef. Each week I would pay scant attention until Lloyd Grossman came to his final long winded conclusion to the show. The winners were announced after the judges had “deliberated, cogitated and digested”.   Thank goodness […]

Texas Grill, Southampton

Ever since I read an online review of Texas Grill, I’ve been itching for an opportunity to drive down to Southampton to try out the 8oz Beef patties stuffed with gooey Monterrey Jack cheese. Even the most vehement burger fan would find it difficult to drive 90+ miles to satisfy their beefy fix. A family […]

Prashad Indian Vegetarian Cuisine, Drighlington, Suburbian Bradford

Prashad rose to notoriety in 2010 by coming second in Gordon Ramsay’s Best Restaurant. This is the first time I’ve visited to the new premises and its much, much bigger than the old restaurant. As you’ll expect, the level of décor has also improved markedly.
Before leaving for Prashad, I was quite apprehensive, my last visit to a pure vegetarian eatery resulted in a quick visit to a famous burger joint on the way home!! If you follow my instagram stream you’ll notice that although i’m a Gujarati by birth I consume loads of meat, I blame my maternal genes. Thanks Mum!!

The full review can be found on my blog www.haloodiefoodie.com

The Gourmet Hut II (TGH 2, The Return)

Six months after my initial visit, I decided to visit The Gourmet Hut again for my post-inspection visit! As I was going with a group of teachers, I decided to give an afternoons notice!! The setting remains the same small, warm and cosy place with low slung pendent lighting and comfortable seating, studded with painted […]
