My first visit here was last year, but it was only for beers and not food so tonight it was all about the food.

The Food…

I was hungry tonight and wanted to try here’s burgers, as I have a favourite place in Craiova for burgers but will this one be as good?

Starter

Burger Downtown 28 Lei

Yip your seeing right two burgers…..that’s because the burger I order was a slider so you get two small to medium sized burgers.

The chips were nice but needed some salt or the dip.

Both burgers were very good and packed with flavour, and I would have them again.

Overall it was a very enjoyable meal and I would order the burgers again.

The atmosphere was nice as I sat outside, and it was a nice evening people watching and eating.

See you again Down Town

Tonight I was walking around this area of the West End, and I decided to pop in here and have a beer and a burger.

Looking Around

On entering it instantly hits you that this is more a pub/bar, but they do have a section through the back where you have booths to eat.

Since I am getting into the craft beer scene, I spotted a few names I recognised so I was going to try a beer I’ve not had before.

As I was shown to my table I had a look at some of the food everyone else was having, and ohhhh they also do really nice looking Hot Dogs.

Main

Southern Fire Burd £10.95

Crispy chicken, bacon, cheese & buffalo sauce

On arrival, this looked very good, and a good sized portion.

First I tried the chips…

These were nice and fresh and had a good taste but a little salt was needed but that’s more a personal preference.

Now the burger…

mmm, the chicken was nice and crispy but had a tender centre, the sauce and cheese and bacon just added to the flavour.

This was a nice chicken burger!!

A really nice first visit, with some good food and a good selection of craft beers.

I will definitely be going back here, as I HAVE to try the hot dogs!!!!

If you like chicken burgers check out this place!

Tonight I was here to attend an event, but I arrived a little early and was very hungry so I thought let’s have a little snack.

This was my first time in this Cafe, and looking around it had a nice look and tonight it had a nice atmosphere.

The Food…

Haggis Bonbons £6.50
With Johnnie Walker Gold label Whiskey Sour Dressing

This was just a little snack as I didn’t want to fill myself up too much, plus I had a very big lunch.

On arrival, this looked nice and also smelled nice and a perfect size for a starter or snack.

This was very nice, the coating was just crispy and no more and the flavours were really good. I could have easily had more, but it was just a snack.

Overall

Overall from my short experience before the event, it was nice and relaxing and the food I had tonight was nice.

Here is a place I would visit again, but this part of the West End I don’t tend to visit too much but if I do I will stop in again and check out the food and drinks.
