Today was a lovely day and it had been a while since my last visit, plus Ive never been for a lunch yet (dinner and dessert only) so we headed there.

It was very busy today outside and the main inside, so we took a seat downstairs (yes they have a downstairs).

I had a look at the new menu, very bright and colourful perfect for summer.

The new menu has the same layout, so if you were used to the old one then you won’t have any issues with this. I think it has the same amount of options? I could be wrong but anyway lets get on with the review.

I only wanted a small dish today, as I was only visiting for lunch so I took a look and opted for the below item.

The Food…

Veal Meatballs Sicillian Style £7

This dish is off the new summer menu at Eusebi Deli, which was only launched in July.

This is actually a starter, but I wasn’t that hungry to go for something off the mains. I decided to pick something random, and give it a try.

On arrival it looked nice, and smelled nice so I was looking forward to tasting.

This was a very interesting dish, normally meat balls are very filling and spicy. These were not spicy and very light to eat which was good since it was a starter.

As always I will go back and try more 🙂

So the previous bloggers night, I decided to book for tonight as I was seeing a show at the SECC and I liked the food so it was a win win situation.

Tonight I arrived and were seated in the same seats as last nights blogger event, so another evening with a nice view. Again just like last night, the atmosphere was very relaxing and I was looking forward to trying some there dishes Mezze has to offer.

Starter :

Lamb Keftedes £5.40
meatballs – tomato sauce

I never had this at the blogger event, so night I wanted to order different dishes so I could see if the others were just as nice as last nights.

This was a nice portion, though I am not sure if this was for two or just for one as we ordered two and only got the one dish. If this was for one, then it was very good value for money.

The flavour was nice, the meatballs were nice on their own but adding the sauce helped bring out the flavour.

Main :

Calamari with Tarator Dip £5.90

I love Calamari and get very disappointed by a restaurant if they don’t do it right, some places are nice but the taste is bland where others its too chewy but they have the taste.

On arrival I liked the presentation, it looked very nice and appealing to the eyes.

To taste, this was very nice. The calamari was not chewy and the batter was perfect, the dip added to the flavour very nicely and I really enjoyed this.

Overall :

I did order a sweet, but what it arrived I noticed it contained nuts. The menu description didn’t mention this which was a shame as if did I would have ordered something else.

This day and age with some many allergies I think it would have been better to mention this, even if the waitress or waiter that night asked “are you ok with nuts as it contains it”.
