Lockside Camden – Tex Mex Heaven

Lockside Camden

 

I love Camden. It’s trendy, funky and full of the weird and wonderful.

It has changed drastically over the last 15 years since I’ve been going out there. Pop up street food stalls and huts have become the staple of the Lock, with a range of cuisines available from all over the world.

I’m a big fan of TexMex food. I like the fusion between Mexico & America with all of their spices, sauces and flavours. It’s one of my favourites!

When I eat I like to sit down, relax and enjoy my food. Standing up squashed between hundreds of people is perfect for ‘food on the go’ but I’m more of a chilled out, take your time kind of foodie. Plus I need room to put the food in my mouth!

Lockside Camden is a well established eat-in restaurant and bar. Perfect for me to relax. Located on the upper walkway inside The Lock, it been open since 2005 and had a refurbishment in January of this year.

With a large outside area overlooking the Lock, it’s great during the warmer months. The perfect spot to enjoy food and a few drinks while you watch the world go by.

Most recently they’ve branched upon a fresh TexMex theme with their ‘Evil Twin’ brand delivering fresh, authentic food bursting with flavour from their creative kitchen.

The chefs are energetic, enthusiastic and bubbly. Just what you want from this type of area.

We sat down at the back of the restaurant after ordering our drinks from the bar. Nattering away about what a fantastic location it was and checking out the quirky artwork on the walls.

From framed cans of craft beer,  to an image of Grime artist D Double E dressed as the (Newham) General (If you know you know). It’s eclectic and unique. There’s even an image of a pair of Reebok Classics which were the fashion staple of street wear when I was growing up, those and Air Force 1’s were my favourites!

Within a very reasonable time our food arrived!
A wooden serving board packed with a fabulous array of foods arrived at our table and we tucked straight in!
5 Hour “Hell Yeah” Pork Belly Tacos with
Kimchi & Guac, corn tortilla
Hot Butter & Siracha Wings
Jalapeño Poppers, Chipotle Aioli, spring Onions
Nacho’s smothered in Queso

See the source image

The Pork belly was AMAZING! Cooked just right, the juicy flavours just melted in my mouth!

The wings? I love a wing and these were by far some of the best I’ve ever tasted!

Jalapeño Poppers are no doubt going to have a kick about them and these were kickin’ for all the right reasons! Very moreish.

And finally the cheesy Nachos…YES, just YES!

The food is tasty, fresh and bursting in flavours and the Kimchi & Guac tortilla was by far my favourite!

 

They also do some fantastic looking Burgers too!

The vibe is edgy yet chilled, the food is delicious and the drinks are cold. What more could you want from an afternoon in Camden Town?

egg

So after much anticipation, Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant Pivaz have finally opened their third venue in the famous town of Brentwood, Essex.
The Mayor of Brentwood, Councillor Will Russell officially opened Pivaz last Friday with a traditional ‘cutting the the ribbon’ to welcome a beautiful new addition to the area.

The family owned business have seriously upped their game in terms of decor and size, with Pivaz Brentwood being their biggest venture yet. If you think their Epping restaurant is amazing then you have to check this one out!

The incredible eatery boasts two spacious floors filled with glamorously plush furniture and lighting, excellent cocktails and mouthwatering, authentic cuisine straight from the motherland. A number of the restaurant’s chefs have even moved over from Turkey, especially to join the ever growing Pivaz team!

It’s been open less than a week and it’s doors have already welcomed a few homegrown favourites from the cast of The Only Way is Essex!
Gemma Collins attended the opening night with friends, along with Ex On The Beach star Jordan Wright who enjoyed an evening of drinks, food and live music from Flamenco guitarist Leo Alma.

It seems that Pivaz Brentwood has already made it onto the map and it’s rightly deserved. The amount of time spent on somewhere that was originally meant to open in December has paid off in such an fantastic way.

Pivaz is great for romantic nights out, dining with friends & family and is the perfect spot for hosting spectacular parties!

Why not try for yourself?

Coppa Club London

Cold winter nights are either about hibernating indoors or enjoying a good meal out!

With views over the famous Tower of London Coppa Club is a great spot for date night dining and dinner with friends or family. It is also extremely fairly priced compared to some other restaurants in the area.

Upon arrival we were seated inside the large, spacious restaurant towards the open kitchen area.

Drinks:

We ordered some ‘Wild Strawberry Spritz’ Cocktails.

These consisted of Fragoli Liqueur, Prosecco & ‘drunken strawberries’ (£6.95 each) which had tiny little ‘Drunken Strawberries’ laying in the bottom of the glass. I have to say they were lovely and very refreshing!

Food:

Starters:

Crispy Fried Squid with Sriracha Mayo, Lemon & Paprika (£5.95)
Seared King Prawns (4) with garlic, Lemon, Chilli & extra virgin Olive Oil (£6.95)
Garlic Bread (£2.95)

Three Cooked Shrimps on Can

Mains:

Corn fed Chicken with lemony Rosemary juices, house Slaw and skinny Fries (Serving two for £19.95)

 

Our starters arrived quite quickly and were visually, very appealing! The taste matched this, as the Garlic bread was simply delicious. More of a garlic flat bread, the four cut slices were perfectly cooked and not overwhelming. I love bread for starters and sometimes over indulge, which often leads to a bit of a struggle when the mains arrive but the portion size was just right.

The Prawns were lovely. Shell on, covered in garlic, lemon, and chilli, they were cooked to perfection! Two each was just enough for us. Served with a slice of lemon to drizzle. Yummy!

I’m a big fan of Squid and this one didn’t disappoint. The creamy Sriracha Mayo sauce added a superb texture once eaten.

The Mains were wonderful, the chicken was fresh, bursting with flavour and a fantastic portion size. The chips were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just the way we like them!

We were full so couldn’t manage dessert, but I’m sure we would have enjoyed those as well!
