It’s now become a highly anticipated summer event; the annual West Road Tap street food pop ups
Leigh on Sea News
In our little corner of Essex, we are not short of Italian eateries. We’ve got everything from up market restaurants such as Cucina, a great little place for a special occasion all the way to Pasta Pia where simple Italian street food is the order of the day
Have you yet to try John Lawson's Sunday lunch with free flowing bubbles?
As new Head Chef Harry Lumsdon come's to The Royal Hotel, Foodie Rich bring's you his review.
Foodie Rich is back with one of his all time favourite restaurant's...
‘We catch so many, I can only get rid of them at Colchester zoo....the sea lions can’t get enough’.
There’s a new kid on the block causing quite a stir. It’s made national headlines, and has divided opinions amongst my friends, let alone my chef friends. And why? How the hell can this new café serve up an edible full English brekkie for a quid?
“Often, all I ever want is some perfectly grilled fish and buttered new potatoes”. A quote from Rick Steins ‘Seafood Odyssey’.
Don’t over complicate things. Words I’m certain chef’s the world over would agree with.
Well I’ve got to say Rayleigh you’re certainly stamping your authority on our local gourmet scene.
Do you know what, whilst on the train home last week, I realised something; I’ve been writing at Leigh-on-sea.com for three years this month! Yeah 3 years! Where the hell has that time gone!
Once a rather uninteresting former old folks home, this building has been transformed in to a high-end boutique hotel, with an equally lavish restaurant.
After a little social media inspiration, it hit me, The Market Place Beigel Bar. YES, I can now get myself a Brick Lane classic locally.
What about our little corner of Essex by the sea? We saw some great new openings this year.
It goes without saying, I like food. Correction, I love it! Who doesn’t I suppose?
I’ve long been a fan of the Grove. This quaint little restaurant perched at the top of Belton Way East has surely one of the best vantage points in Leigh. With its truly enviable location, grab a seat in their garden and you’ll be spoilt with a beautiful vista across, what I like to describe as, the Thames Riviera.
This iconic building gazes down over the estuary, just as it has done for over 200 years, and looks as good as it did back in the day.
Surely this has got to be one of the most iconic fish & chip restaurants in the area? They’ve been frying up our national dish since 1967.
Have I just woken up? Have I been in some kind’a gastronomic dream? Did last week really happen? At one point I had to pinch myself to make sure I was awake.
We’ve all got a bucket list, right? All those must do things before you pop your clogs. Swim with dolphins, wing walk, fly in a hot air balloon, and all those sorts of things. Yes, I do have a bucket list but an alternative one. It’s a foodie bucket list.
