Food Review 2; Soba.
Soba is an Asian street food restaurant and cocktail, with cool decor and good music. During the week they have drinks promotions (the apple and ginger mojito, at £3, is divine) and if you and a friend both have student cards, you can get your cheapest main course free between Monday and Friday! Brilliant!
I've been a few times now, splitting the already reduced bill makes it an affordable treat every now and then. I've always loved Asian cuisine and the month I spent in Thailand and Cambodia last summer solidified that love (although, rice and noodles for a month solid was a bit much). Soba however, is authentic, tasty and has a variety of lots of different foods on the menu.
One of my favourite dishes they do is called a massaman curry. It is a beef curry, which has a thick peanut-y sauce which includes potatoes and a lot of other yummy things. I had it first at Parklife festival in Manchester, from a Thai street food stall and then again whilst in Thailand. This is the fist time I have seen it on a menu in a restaurant though and if it sounds like it's up your street, it's worth going for that alone.
Today, I had a delicious starter of Hong Kong dumplings; steamed dumplings with a variety of fillings, served in the cutest little bamboo steamer and served with soy dipping sauce. They were lovely and just the right size for a starter. Calum had Malaysian chicken satay skewers and by the rate they disappeared I wouldn't have guessed there were any complaints..
