This is not the type of food that I will normally ‘review’ on this blog. However, if I feel as though something I eat is worth the mention I will definitely tell you about it. What might surprise you is the fact Nicholls, Abergavenny is actually a shop selling good quality jewellery, clothing and homeware. The website describes the space at the back serving food as a ‘Coffee Shop’. It is not open evenings but with a decent sized menu serving very good quality food it is not like any other Coffee Shop I have visited.
A couple of days ago I decided that I want to make the best burger possible in my own home. Inspired by The Beefy Boys (@TheBeefyBoys) and my recent visit to Sawyers Bar and Grill @Sawyersmagor (review here) I gave it a go. I believe that I am competent enough in the kitchen to make a burger. With the knowledge gained scrolling through Twitter recently, I should know how a good burger should look and taste.
Today I am ‘reviewing’ the Flat Iron Steak Pizza from Frankie and Bennys. A part of me nearly didn’t post this review because Frankie and Bennys is a national chain also responsible for Chiquitos and Garfunkel’s Restaurants to name a couple. I feel as though most of the people who write and read food blogs like mine only want to hear about the independent restaurants and food stalls/vans. The ones people haven’t always heard about.
For the most part, I am the same. There are countless reviews of Frankie and Bennys restaurants by bloggers and writers much more accomplished and respected than me. Not many people would read this and not already know about Frankie and Bennys pizza. I like to read and write about the less well known restaurants and street food but I also want to write about any and all food that I enjoy. So here it is.
Top Ten places I would like to eat.
I’m sure that just like me, many of you spend most of your time on the internet religiously scrolling through Twitter, salivating because every other Tweet shows images of some incredible burger, tasty ribs or a slowly smoked tender and juicy brisket. If you don’t, it’s probably because you are lucky enough to eat this food on a regular basis. I sit at my desk feeling very hungry and extremely disappointed with my miserable lunch 99% of the time. This does mean that, until now, I have kept a list of the top ten places I would like to eat in my head. Some of them are actually very nearby and some are much further afield and will probably stay on my list for a very long time.
