Recently due to my blogging, I have made two new friends, if you follow any food blogs or travel blogs you may have heard of them
Emma Eats : twitter.com/EmmaEatsUK
Weekends With Wendy : twitter.com/WendyAndrew_
I have had the pleasure of meeting both of them twice now, and they are very lovely and nice girls. Please follow them on Twitter and read their blogs, they have taught me a lot since I started and I look forward to my next meeting with them.
So the three of us decided to go to Chaakoo as I have praised it so much, and also Emma did a quick visit not that long ago but wanted to go back.
Feel free to check my previous posts on Chaakoo here
During the past view visits the manager kept in touch with me via Twitter and said next visit he would like to come and meet me so I told him the three of us were going.
If you have been reading my posts, I am trying very hard when I return to a restaurant not to order the same thing or things. Did I do it this night……..kind of 🙂
On entering, I was welcomed and shown to my table, and Annie came over to see if I would like to drink anything. Again Annie was very friendly, and it was nice to see a familiar face 🙂
Tonight’s Dishes :
KOFTA CURRY £5.50
Iranian kofta meatballs in our cafe curry sauce.
This seems to be one of my two fav dishes, as I had to get it again. The meatballs are cooked perfectly and have a nice little kick to them, the sauce just adds more flavour to give an amazing mix in taste.
SAAG PANEER £5.95 (V)
A classic jalfrezi dish of spiced spinach, studded with cubes of creamy fried paneer cheese.
This is one of my friend’s favourite dishes and I have never tried it here, so tonight I thought I would give it a shot to see what it’s like.
I had tried Paneer at another Indian restaurant, and I felt its flavours were bland.
I would describe this as a curried cottage cheese, that’s as close as a description I can give you if you haven’t tried it before.
This is very nice, normally I am not into vegetarian dishes but I would have this again. The flavour was really good!!.
(V) Crispy fried vegetable pakora.
If you have had vegetable pakora then you can’t go wrong with it, this was very tasty and the sauce add a nice little kick.
Denny the manager came out to see us, and I finally got to meet him. You can’t not but love him, he is passionate, friendly and a really nice guy. He spoke to us about the food, himself and the decor.
Denny then asked if would like to try a cocktail, and he would surprise us with three. As you know I am a big fan of cocktails, so I was looking forward to them. On his return he said these were his three favourite cocktails, the one I choose was :
MIRCH & CHOKALET
Cocchi Torino, Arbikie chilli vodka, fresh orange, nutmeg, egg white
— Sweet with subtle spice and the texture of a cloud
This is a really nice cocktail and one I could have many off. I would like to thank Denny for this cocktail 🙂
Another faultless visit, the food was amazing as always and the service was really good.
I am already looking forward to my next visit, if you have not tried this place out yet what are you waiting for you will love it.
I would like to take this time to thank Denny personally, as he was kind enough to give us a discount on our meal plus the cocktail which was not needed but very much appreciated and very kind….so thank you Denny for tonight 🙂 and it was great to finally meet you in person 🙂
5 Stars just like the last visits 🙂
