Gourmet Society Bloggers’ July Recommendations
Ah, Gourmet Society, you have introduced me to oh so many fantastic restaurants, and even treated me to some unbeatable discounts when going to them. There’s something so utterly satisfying about flashing a card with a flourish, much like Bruce Wayne would when walking into, well, anywhere, and finding that part of the bill has simply disappeared.
Half price steak? Why yes, that would be wonderful. A quarter of my drinks already paid for? Well, if you insist.
This love affair has only intensified now that I work for Gourmet Society, which has assimilated my love for writing about good food with my love of eating good food. I’ve seen so many restaurants become part of the fold here at Gourmet Society, and every month I’m overwhelmed with the staggering amount of places that have piqued my interest. Some of which have made me type their address into Google Maps and actually consider driving for hours on end for a delicious meal.
It’s these places that I would recommend to everyone and anyone to go and try, so with that in mind I’d like to share the restaurants that in July alone have started to accept members and treat you like the gourmets that you are.
London/Greater London Area
- Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Piccadilly: After writing about this place twice I’ve virtually exhausted every Forrest Gump quote I know, but it goes without saying the seafood and steaks here are incredible… And that’s all I have to say about that.
- Vietcafe, Piccadilly: A fantastic chilled out locale with phenomenal Vietnamese dishes.
- The Princess of Wales, Primrose Hill: International fare served up at this London based gastropub!
- El Inca Plebeyo, Canonbury: From the borders of South America comes some excellent food, served on the borders of Greater London.
- Moji, Newcastle: Proving there are dishes sweeter than sweet and sour, this Newcastle based Chinese looks brilliant.
- Stone Trough Inn, York: A secluded, scenic and superb York based eatery that serves oh so delicious looking Modern English cuisine.
- The Gin Bar, Newcastle: With ‘gin’ in name you should be sold, but there are far more wonders served here than just the drinks.
- Propaganda, Bury: Taking American ‘cuisine’ further than just burgers and hot dogs, this Bury based joint looks bodacious.
- Kiplings, Halifax: An Olympic Bid winning Indian restaurant that serves much more than your standard curry house.
- Ganesha, Birmingham: An incredibly diverse menu that’s as heavenly as the god it’s named after.
- Sheldon Spice, Birmingham: A wealth of tantalising Indian choices stand proudly besides some succulent steaks at this charming restaurant.
- The Boot Room, Leicester: An incredibly laid back looking restaurant, with some fine Modern English food to boot.
- Roxy’s Bistro, Bournemouth: A fairly internationally themed bistro, mostly influenced by Transylvanian tastes and entirely good looking!
- Cromwell Cottage, Kislington: An unassuming country pub oozing with charm and filled with Modern English delights.
- Corretto, Godalming: A wonderful little tapas centred eatery that’s perfect for those nights that demand a little bit of everything.
- Barley and Rye, Cardiff: Championing Welsh cuisine in Cardiff doesn’t sound too difficult, but trust me, this place looks utterly delectable.
- Samphire, Dublin: Housed in an enchanting hotel with the shore at its doorstop, it’s no wonder this exquisite restaurant serves some sublime seafood.
These are but a few of the restaurants that made me want to dash off for an early lunch, and there’s so many more to visit being added every day. Think I don’t know what I’m talking about?
