Essex meals in 2019. A post all about where I eat with friends or family when I was able to go out for lunch or dinner.
A gluten free pasta and it was awful. I could not finish this. And will never order this dish again. I knew I should not have ordered this. Next time go for the fish !
Galvin Green Man, Chelmsford
This was our belated anniversary meal. We were both ill in February, so when we were better, we went to our favourite for a sunday lunch. I had roast beef and then chocolate mousse and blood orange. It was delicious but it always is, when we eat here.
This time I went for the fish and had sea bass and this was delicous
Zen Noodles, Chelmsford
A long awaited catch up with friends, who I had not seen for over seven months, as I was travelling and then so ill from late December to mid March. A long awaited return, to see how my body reacted to my favourite Kon Chow Beef Ho Fun. This is stir-fried flat rice noodles with beef, onions and bean shoots. And lucky for me, apart from the constant tiredness, my stomach was fine. So my husband told me, we would go here back in the future. Zen noodles is a firm long term favourite for me.
Middleton Steak House, Chelmsford
Now open in Chelmsford city centre, this stylish steakhouse restaurant looked very nice when we went in for a visit. I took my best friend here for his birthday. I ordered the Prawn Cocktail for a starter and Lamb Rump Steak for my main. As lovely as this was, this was too much food for me. I felt slight sick for eating too much. But it was lovely restaurant to visit.
Turquoise Kitchen, Chelmsford
I tried Turkish food this for the first time, I had the lunch deal and had cacik for starters; grated cucumber mixed with thick yogurt, garlic and mint. And for my main, I has the Salmon. After all, fish is better for me than red meat.
Thai Cottage, Witham
My husband took me out for my birthday dinner. I had another favourite, Pad Nam Man Hoi, which is stir fried with onion, broccoli, mushrooms, sweet peppers and spring onion in oyster sauce.
Fowlers Farm, Braintree
While my husband was in Italy in the summer for his motorbike track weekend. My mum and I went for a Sunday roast. I do like roasts when they are done well. This roast was ok but the lemon meringue dessert was to die for. So good.
Back In Time, Chelmsford
Have not been in Back In Time since I left work in 2017, it has not changed a bit. The lunch time deal is £6.50 and also a soft drink which is a good deal for Chelmsford. I had a jacket potato as I can not eat the normal dish of burger and fries.
Loch Fyne, Chelmsford
A long awaited catch up with my best friend, he has been in the US for one month, then I was away when he was back before he went to Spain and then I was in Turkey. This was my belated birthday lunch. This was salmon with mash potato and chives with shamphire and fresh lemon. This was disappointing since our last visit.
And this is it. I have not been in the best health both mentally and physically. So I am finding myself cancelling Essex meals. But that is life.
