Last week was a tough one… newly opened Meimo’s asked Nigel if he would take some food pics for their website. Always keen to help out local businesses (and to pretend to be a professional photographer) Nigel headed up Peascod Street with camera in hand. Then came the perfect drizzly Friday afternoon phone call – “They’re cooking up the whole menu, do the girls want to come and eat the food after we’ve photographed it…?”
Hello? Is, like, Arnold Schwarzenegger hard to spell? “Yes please,” came the deafening response and off we tottered for a fab lunch. Thank goodness it WAS Friday as we wouldn’t be abe to fit into any clothes (or doorways) again until Monday!
From the chargrilled Lamb Brochettes to the Classic Gourmet Burger served with straw fries, we worked our way through most of the menu together with Bob (actual professional photographer) and his lovely wife Jackie. Even Kelly “I don’t eat vegetables” Vessey, perhaps the least adventurous eater of all time, loved it, although nothing we said could get her to try the Calamari! (Divine; served with salad and garlic mayonnaise).
Our recommendations to you:- Becky’s favourite was the Sea Bream stuffed with rice, Leonie loved the slow cooked Lamb Shank, Nigel and Bob loved the Lamb Tagine and Jackie and I happily finished off the Meditteranean Roast Chicken. Everyone agreed the pancakes were the nicest they had ever tasted!
Thanks to Abdul and his team for making us feel so welcome and serving us a delicious lunch. We’ve already booked our Staff Christmas Outing at Meimo’s, and if any other restaurants need some help they are very welcome to give the AWL Team a call… we LOVE food!
