Giraffe World Kitchen, Princesshay by Chris Gower

Tel: 01392 494 222  Princesshay, Exeter, EX1 1GE @giraffetweet Princesshay Shopping Centre is the gleaming modern jewel in the centre of Exeter’s shopping experience.  With restaurants and fine High Street names, it replaced the tattered pre-war complex that some of us Exonians still remember with a bizarre nostalgic fondness. When the modern Princesshay opened, with it also opened Giraffe with its slightly westernised versions of world … Continue reading Giraffe World Kitchen, Princesshay by Chris Gower

The Flat, 142 Fore St – Vegetarian/Vegan Pizzeria by Chris Gower

https://www.theflatexeter.co.uk/ –  I: @TheFlatExeter F: TheFlatExeter Edit: Previous version of this review stated that gluten-free and vegan mozzarella was default, in fact these are options. Last year Exeter lost two great pizza restaurants.  The Base & Barley became The Book Cover and Pizza Stein turned into Bierkeller, leaving diners in Exeter without a central place to grab hand-made thrown pizza.  Yes, there are plenty of little Italian … Continue reading The Flat, 142 Fore St – Vegetarian/Vegan Pizzeria by Chris Gower

Easy Chicken and Pesto Pasta – Ideal for beginners

Our kitchen is about the size of a knat’s testicle and given the tiny amount of surface space we actually have, I am all for the student modus operandi when it comes to cooking.  There is no shame in using a jar of pesto opposed to fresh pesto that you make yourself, and I can’t start to say that it matches it in taste but … Continue reading Easy Chicken and Pesto Pasta – Ideal for beginners

Exeter Picturehouse Bar, 51 Bartholomew Street West

Besides my love of food, the love of film and cinema is the next on my list.  And in my opinion there is nowhere else in Exeter worth going to for cinematic consumption than The Exeter Picturehouse.  Exeter has three main cinemas, and this is the only one where you can get good food and reasonably priced drinks before you go in to the auditorium. … Continue reading Exeter Picturehouse Bar, 51 Bartholomew Street West

Inferno Stir Through Pasta – (Tomato and Mozzarella)

Originally posted on Veget8:
This is most probably the most extreme dish you will ever come  across.  OK, it might actually be mild compared to some mexican  recipes and in the grand scheme of things, actually eating fire    would be hotter and more deadly. But it’s hot.   It’s also very garlicky, the sort of quatities of garlic  involved would stun a man at 100 yards… Continue reading Inferno Stir Through Pasta – (Tomato and Mozzarella)
