‘Mimi E Coco’s fries are to die for!’

There’s an Italian restaurant in Cheam, Surrey, referred to as Mimi E Coco. It’s not fancy, however it’s not fairly a 90s trattoria; there’s no candy trolley, however they do prefer to brown off the creme brulee in entrance of you. Any night time of the week you will note regulars and it’s good for household celebrations, a romantic meal or simply pasta and a bottle of purple when the trains have been delayed on the homeward commute. The meals is constant, no fancy methods and at all times a very good portion. I’ll be ordering the gambas alla Coco: huge butterflied prawns swimming in butter sauce, served up with a rice bombe. I may even order a portion of fries, that are to die for. A gentle creamy burrata to start out, a slice of cassata to complete and a bottle of nero d’avola. Anne-Marie Warwick, accountant, Surrey

‘I miss the Clock’s fish and chips’

I miss the Clock Cafe in Scarborough – I miss consuming their fish and chips, however most of all I miss the ritual of getting there. You have to stroll – you possibly can’t get there by automotive – down the cliff, previous the seafront and as much as the cafe. You possibly can odor the ocean on the breeze and listen to the gulls cry. When you arrive, the panorama is spectacular. You possibly can sit and dream, chat with pals, or faux it’s 1880 and you might be carrying your new straw boater. It’s fabulous and I miss it. Nameless, Scarborough

Lockdown has meant that we haven’t been in a position to make our deliberate return journey to Scotland. After we had been final there, we discovered the very best restaurant: Eusebi Deli in Glasgow. On our final journey, we ate there twice it was so good. The persons are improbable and the meals is superior. We will probably be ordering Yesterday’s Lasagne and the nduja ravioli.

‘Joplins’ decor hasn’t modified in 35 years – nor the menu’

After we had been first house-hunting in Nice Ayton, we ate at Joplins fish restaurant – I bear in mind my starter was dressed Whitby crab. Thirty-five years later, the restaurant continues to be owned by the identical couple, the decor stays unchanged and I’m certain the menu is similar, too. Dressed crab is the type of dish it’s virtually unattainable to make at residence and its simplicity and flavour delight me each time we eat right here. Trying ahead to going again.

‘Pasta Loca’s carbonara is out of this world’

In January 2020, my husband and I attempted Pasta Loca in Bristol. There was a three-month wait for a desk and I bear in mind considering there was no manner it might be value it. Their carbonara was out of this world, with lard-wrapped poached egg and pork stomach. Within the taxi residence, I made one other reservation for August however, because of the pandemic, this was cancelled. I’ve since develop into a vegetarian, and Pasta Loca’s carbonara is the one dish that makes me query that call.
