Last week I was very kindly invited to my all-time favourite restaurant to try out their new menu. I’ve been obsessed with Cosy Club ever since my friend introduced me to it last October and it’s been my favourite place to eat ever since.
So when I was invited back to try out the new menu at Cosy Club it only felt right that I should take the person who introduced me to it all those months ago.
Here’s what Katie and I ate when we tried out the new menu last week!
Before we headed to the restaurant on Fossgate, I’d already extensively checked out the new menu to see what they had to offer.
You may remember from my previous post just how much I loved the Cosy Club tapas menu so I was so glad they decided to keep their offerings of tapas as part of the new menu. The first thing I did notice however was that they’d removed my beloved pigs in blankets and beef and pork meatballs so that was pretty devastating to say the least.
However, the newest additions to the tapas menu looked fine AF so I couldn’t wait to indulge in some heavenly pulled chicken and chorizo, garlic mushrooms and popcorn bacon.
The pulled chicken and chorizo with crispy potatoes wasn’t a new addition to the new menu at Cosy Club but my god, they were even better than I remembered. The chicken and chorizo went perfectly together and the crispy potatoes complimented the meat beautifully. If you order one dish from the tapas menu, it has to be this!
The popcorn bacon was a new addition to the menu and while I was a little apprehensive at first, after a few more bites, I was surprised to discover that they were bloody delicious. A crunchy, battered exterior with a juicy bacon interior; they were absolutely delicious. The chipotle mayo that accompanied the popcorn bacon was also incredible and I’d really love to recreate these at home one day.
The final dish that I ordered was the garlic mushrooms on sourdough toast which were unbelievably tasty. I have a love/hate relationship with mushrooms so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this dish but I’m so glad that I ordered it because it was divine!
My friend Katie also ordered the popcorn bacon and she also opted for the halloumi sticks and the goat’s cheese and spinach croquettes. I didn’t actually try those two dishes but I know that Katie thoroughly enjoyed them. I’d definitely like to try out the halloumi sticks on my next visit to Cosy Club.
We also ordered two dishes to share; the Mediterrean platter which consisted of hummus with pomegranate, carrot, red cabbage plus a few other nibbles all accompanied by soft, warm pitta bread. It was remarkably tasty but I’m not sure if I’d order this particular dish again; it was definitely my least favourite dish that we ordered.
The side of bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil also went down an absolute treat as it was the perfect addition to the meal. This side used to come complimentary with tapas dishes but unfortunately with the new menu, Cosy Club has decided to charge for it separately.
As we were having a huge catch up as I hadn’t seen Katie since I left my old job over two months ago, we decided to have a look at the cocktail menu and we both went for the English Garden cocktail which was a beautiful blend of gin, apple juice and elderflower served in a stunning crystal glass. I’d definitely recommend this cocktail if you’re ever at Cosy Club as it’s not too overpowering with alcohol but it tastes absolutely scrumptious.
I’m not usually one for desserts as I tend to prefer savoury foods but on this particular ocassion, I decided to indulge in a dessert at Cosy Club. The newest additions to the dessert menu included this uh-mazing concoction of nutella and vanilla cream doughnut with candy floss and raspberry dust. I very rarely eat anything with nuts in now as Matt is severely allergic to them but as he was working late on the evening we attended Cosy Club, I knew I just had to try this incredible sounding doughnut. The chocolate-stuffed doughnut was so, so yummy and the candy floss was such an amazing addition to the dessert; I would 100% order it again.
Katie’s dessert of choice was the salted caramel cheescake accompanied by butterscotch sauce and sweet and salty popcorn. This dessert was absolutely heavenly and it really was the perfect dessert to end a delicious meal.
Thank you so much to Cosy Club for allowing us to try out the new menu; we had a wonderful time and I already can’t wait to head back again to try out some new dishes!
