Pamson Grill Leicester

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into Pamson Grill located off London Road on Highfield Street. The restaurant had absolutely stunning interiors and was spacious, warm and inviting. Beautiful and comfortable, with a very family friendly ambience. They have a kids menu too which is extra fabulous for us as our child does not really eat spicy food. Ps. even black pepper is spicy for her! There was popcorn chicken, fish fingers or pasta for the child to choose from and she declared that their popcorn chicken was Deeeee-licious. I love that they made everything in house instead of some frozen food that they threw in the oven. Fresh popcorn chicken made to perfection for the little one.

Service was brilliant and the owner, Muhammed gave us very knowledgeable recommendations when we were going through their menu. They truly delivered when it came to their food (the most important thing when it comes to eating out) and gave our family a fantastic authentic Pakistani food experience. We were really impressed at the quality of the food, one bite and you can tell how fresh it is.

We are huge meat lovers so we were going to order the usual suspects to start : Lamb chops and Seekh Kebabs. They highly recommended we try a vegetarian starter called Papri Chaat. It was my first time trying this dish and the Chaat was excellent. The dish is prepared with chickpeas, potatoes and spices and it was like an explosion of flavours in your mouth. My husband thinks the lamb chops here are beyond amazing and he would definitely come back again just for them. They were marinated very well and served on a sizzler with fried onions and peppers.

Their starter portions were generous and I would have been happy to skip the mains and go straight to desserts but I was intrigued at what the mains would be like especially when the chef appears in front of you and starts whipping up your meal. My daughter was very amused and she loved the whole experience. The chef cooked their special dish called a Katakat in front of us. We tried their Chicken Tikka Katakat and it was an amazing curry like dish. Their Lamb Karahi was lush, with tender meat and served in a wok! As you probably know, we enjoy eating out and we frequent quite a number of Asian restaurants and I have to say the standard of food here is high and has a feel of a heartwarming homecooked meal.

We had an overdose of good Pakistani food at Pamson Grill and I would highly recommend this restaurant for an enjoyable and interesting meal out. We had 2 little ones in tow as always and the meal was still fun and relaxing. I bet we will be regular visitors from now on!

Jimmy’s Killer Prawns

We love eating out. We love eating. Fullstop. Our family eating adventures aka ‘restaurant hopping’ is still going strong although nowadays I never write about it anymore as life takes over and takeaway is too convenient when you have to juggle 2 kiddies BUT …

There’s a new kid in town that spurred me to write a post to share just how much our family enjoyed our meal there. They claim that their food is addictive and oh boy it truly was. I am a huge fan of their killer prawns. We went there over the weekend and we even ‘Deliveroo-ed’ them the following day. Eeks ( not very kind to the wallet ). It just goes to show how addictive it was.

There’s something for everyone and if you are not a fan of seafood, there’s always the chicken or meat option. Be warned though, their portions are ENORMOUS. The prices are slightly steep but when you share your meal, it works out to be pretty good value for what you get.

We went for a combo as the other half wanted to have a bit of steak too. It was all about the prawns for me! Ours was served with rice, fries and their trio of sauces. The garlic butter was divine.

The Prawns are served whole in their shells and with their heads intact. The marinade on them was lovely. Its messy but the best way to enjoy them is to suck on the outer shell as its just so juicy. Gosh, I cannot believe I just wrote that. The grilled prawns were on point and I would come back again and again for them.

IMG_3666.JPGKids meal. Our child adores prawns and she could have shared ours but we went for the spicy grilled prawns instead of the orignal flavour. Turns out, she loved it .. the spicy one. We did order her a kiddy meal though. Fried prawns with fries. She enjoys her food and its always a pleasure to watch her try a variety of food.

We also ordered a starter to share and the waitress recommended we try the Red Prawn soup. One of the best I’ve tasted in a while, thick, rich, spicy and plenty of prawns in there.

Not ready for food, oh little child but we bring you everywhere with us too.

Definitely worth a visit. Let me know what you think!
