.: Kids menu :.

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve last managed to post anything in here! Only this last week I’ve started to go out again, so hopefully I’ll manage to go back to posting.

As it was my birthday this week, I had my parents with me, so I definitely wanted to have a lunch out. After some quick baby shopping, we’ve ended up going to Turtle Bay for lunch. I wanted a quiet place where I would be able to breastfeed. Although Turtle Bay tends to be really crowded on the evenings, due to the variety of cocktails and cocktail hour, at lunch it was actually pretty quiet.

Turtle Bay is known by the Caribbean food. Love the Jerk Chicken and the Koko Colada. But as I’m breasfeeding, I’ve ended up ordering from the kids menu (can’t have spice, milk, tomato…. oh joy!), but at least managed to have 2 pots of sweet potato fries! (I had to order 2 kids menus to make an adult portion)

I was just delighted I had my first meal out since August! It’s just a shame I’m having such a restrict diet, but I’ll get used to it and after all, it’s for a really good cause 🙂

.: Ealing Park Tavern :.

I had read a few really interesting reviews about Ealing Park Tavern and since then it was on my wishlist. I just can’t believe I didn’t went any sooner, since I live less than 10m walking from there! As we had a friend over on Friday, we’ve decided it was time to go.

Location wise it’s impossible to miss, as it’s on the main road to south ealing station.

Decor

Well, it looks like a very nice pub. It’s actually quite big, but as we arrived late and it’s Christmas dinner time, we’ve only managed to get a little table for 3.

They are also a micro-brewery and if you like stouts I really recommend the birdie flipper, so flipping good!

The Food

This is the main reason to go! Not only you get a good choice of beers, but also the food is pretty good. I went for one of the specials, pasta with hare and wild mushrooms. The photo is rubbish, I apologise, but the flavour was so good! You could really taste the mushrooms. Good combination of flavours!

Then I saw the pudding menu and I’ve noticed the chocolate mousse, how could I resist that?

So yummy! He had a caramel type one, but not really sure what it was. It was also quite soft and tasty too

So overall we had a really good evening and the agreement that we’ll be back more often. Nothing is better than discovering your local pub is worth a visit! 😀

.: Loro di Napoli – Ealing – Pizzas :.

I had been trying to go for pizzas with a friend that lives near by, but after all of us had strong calls we kept on postponing it. Last night was the night. I wanted to try the famous Santa Maria, but as there was a new opening in the scene, Loro di Napoli, I wanted to try this one first.

Make sure you book in advance or you will have to wait as the place is quite small. It’s also quite easy to find, closest bust stop is chando’s avenue, and it’s actually just south of “south ealing station” (Google maps)

We had bread and olives to start with and I have to say it’s quite a big portion.

The pizzas arrived quickly after that. All of it wood oven baked for proper flavour. Quite a good pizza especially when factoring the £9. Some are as cheap as £6. We had the “Toto” which was lovely. Recommended one with tomato.


We managed to share a tiramissu for the 3 of us, quite creamy and not soaked in sauce so a very good finishing.


Recommended for your next door good pizza. They also do take away.

  • Location: 4,5/5 – Really easy to find
  • Service: 4/5 – Efficient and polite
  • Decor: 3.5/5 – Even if the place is small I think they could try to make it more cosy like
  • Food: 4/5 – I still prefer Franco Manca, but the pizzas and the tiramisu where quite good too!

Enjoy your weekend! I’m about to start preparing our lunch with some friends in my house today, so I would expect some wine… maybe lots of wine!
