Durty Nellys - Smoked Salmon Penne

Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub

I can’t fault the generous serving and the meal was delicious with a lovely creamy white wine sauce adding plenty of flavour. Plenty of smoked salmon and prawns provided the “meat” in the dish with the capers, spinach and sun dried tomatoes providing the contrast to the richness of the meal and the odd chunks of feta. You won’t leave here hungry and if you’re thirsty, there’s plenty a pint to quench your thirst.

Koko Black's Queen of Hearts

Koko Black

I’m glad to have finally made a visit and sample what Koko Black has to offer but the high tea didn’t exactly wow me. For all the hype of this place, I don’t think it lived up to it but the standard is solid. The standouts were the chocolate opera cake, vanilla panacotta, both sets of toasted sandwiches and the hot chocolate. The other items were nice but without being uplifting. Nonetheless, if I were close by and wanted a quick snack of some sorts, a visit here is a must. Having sampled some of the chocolates, these are delicious and one can see they excel in this area and is their specialty.
