Wahaca Arrives In Southampton

Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to the press launch of Wahaca in Southampton. Sometimes I need to pinch myself – I really am so grateful to every restaurant kind enough to throw open their doors for me to share their delights with you all!

SummerDine at West Quay Southampton

West Quay is such an awesome place to shop and eat – and over the summer, it just got even better, thanks to the SummerDine promotion. From now until the end of August, there’s going to be a host of offers and discounts at loads of the centre’s cafes, restaurants and food kiosks – handy for those summer holiday shopping trips!

To take advantage of the offers, you can download WestQuay’s brand new mobile app, PLUS, which contains exclusive discounts across the centre’s large range of retailers. Amongst the offers currently on the app are 20% off Ed’s Easy Diner, kids eat free at Harry Ramsden’s, and a free original glazed doughnut (my favourite!) at Krispy Kreme with any purchase.

There are so many amazing shops and restaurants at West Quay, I couldn’t possibly list them all for fear of missing out on one of my favourites (although… hey, John Lewis and Wagamama come pretty high on the list… And don’t forget to pop into Hotel Chocolate for a free sample of their latest new treats… And I always have to see what’s on the belt at Yo! Sushi… And, I simply have to try out the Handmade Burger Co. soon too…) To find out more about West Quay, head to their site here: www.west-quay.co.uk.

Serving Up Food Heaven: Dining at WestQuay, 22 November

If you’re from Southampton, or regularly visit our big shopping centre, WestQuay, you may have noticed some building work afoot over the past few months! Tomorrow, on 22 November, all that hard work is officially paid off as the centre launches the new Dining at WestQuay – a wider range of restaurants available for customers visiting the mall. New restaurants will include Pizza Express (yes!), noodle restaurant Wagamama (yes!), Southampton’s first Café Rouge Express (YES!), Mexican eatery Tortilla (yes!) and the American-inspired Ed’s Easy Diner (OH GOD YES!).

To celebrate, there will be a day of culinary delights, led by award-winning chef Aldo Zilli, who will be showcasing his Italian-inspired cuisine live on stage!

From 12pm, shoppers will be treated to 3 demonstrations, which feature dishes such as pasta chitarra with four tomato sauce, baked cod with black olive crust, and a panettone dessert. Chefs from some of the other new dining companies will also be demonstrating their dishes – including Wagamama, so expect some Asian-inspired dishes as well!

Of course, if you really want to get the crowds in, you have to offer samples, so you’ll be pleased to know many of the food outlets are planning just that, from Hotel Chocolat, Nando’s, Marks and Spencer, Starbucks and Café Giardino. There will also be prizes, special offers and discounts up for grabs!
