On Saturday evening my friends and I decided to go out for a meal (shock horror) and on the recommendation from another friend, we booked in to a new-ish restaurant in Norwich - Lust and Liquour. I'd never heard of it before, but it's on St Benedicts Street in the city, which is home to a plethora of trendy and arty type bars / restaurants.
The menu is perfect for meat lovers - veggies, I'm not sure how you'd feel about the ribs, burgers etc on offer but fortunately for me, I ain't no vegetarian. We did actually order some chilli beef nachos but we virtually inhaled them, so there was no time for a picture of those (though they were extremely tasty).
For main course (sandwiched in between the nachos and wine) I ordered the Texas Beef Tacos. They were really tasty although I did think that the beef slices could have had more seasoning / flavour. The home made coleslaw was very aptly 'lush' and I'm not usually a fan of corn on the cob, but I seriously enjoyed tucking into that corn. There were some chunky chips on the side which were just the right amount of crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside - it looks as though there is only a small amount of them but trust me when I say you'll be full and it's just the right amount.
All in all, I was one very happy (if a little over - full) gal. So what do you do after you've stuffed yourself full of Tacos? You go to the Gin Palace of course!
The Gin Palace in Norwich is one of my favourite spots which I only found out about (also through a recommendation from a friend) a few weeks ago. It's like stepping into a time - warp... think Agatha Christie and you're there. It's very decadent and over furnished with lavish lamps and wooden, ornate furniture with a vintage soundtrack to match.
The drinks only come as doubles (so take plenty of cash) and they have something like 150 different gins to choose from. I actually usually despise gin (but I do love tonic) but under the tutelage of the helpful bar staff, I picked the Edinburgh Raspberry gin which makes for a very fruity and refreshing drink - seriously scrumptious! If you're ever in the Norwich area, it's definitely worth a visit.
