Top 3 “Eat Social” Picks (Mon 16 – Sun 22 Nov.)


Social Sheffield Food Writer, Erin Lawlor, picks her Top 3 “Eat Social” Recommendations for those eating out in Sheffield, Mon. 16 – Sun. 22 Nov. 2015

1. – Seafood Biryani @ Thali Cafe (Chesterfield Road)

I’m a big fan of Indian food and couldn’t believe my luck when I was taken to this place by someone in the know. They definitely haven’t got the press the deserve. The service is incredibly friendly, the food is delicious every time, and the dishes change on a daily basis. Every time I go, I pray that they’ll have the first dish I ever tasted there: the seafood biryani thali plate, served with gorgeously warm flatbread, chutneys and their famous onion bhajis. Crispy, spice and absolutely delicious I’m drooling at the thought.

2. – Eggs @ Tamper (Arundel Street, City Centre)

So it’s Saturday morning, I’ve indulged far too much at the BYOB on Friday night and now I’m having to drag myself to brunch. All I want is a cuddle and a plate of eggs! In particular, Tamper eggs – scrambley eggs on yummy toast with a hash brown to be precise. The hash browns are like no other hash brown you’ve tasted before: potato, carrot and some secret ingredients (it’s love isn’t it?) They’re fried till golden brown and crispy and served on fresh sourdough toast from The Depot Bakery I’m not sure there’s any better eggs going! They also do a killer Eggs Bennedict, with buttery hollandaise and seasoned to perfection.

3. – Arancini @ Italian Express (Walkley)

Three words: Deep. Fried. Risotto. There have been nights when I’ve genuinely woken up dreaming about these balls of joy. Shaken awake by ravenous hunger and longing for risotto goodness. Italian Express has been my reliable source of Arancini for the past two years. Especially because they deliver them right to my door. Stuffed with mozzarella just to make them even better, they are a comfort food of choice for me. I normally get them after a very long day with tortellini, their tomato spinach creamy sauce and a crispy green salad. Delicious.
