Have you ever been to a place that’s just SO good you want to go back there every.single.day? Well, that’s how I feel about Cosy Club. I loved everything about the restaurant so much that I ate there twice in nine days and it’s definitely become my favourite place to eat in York.
I first went to Cosy Club with some girls from work and I loved it so much that I took Matt there a week later to celebrate our 18 month anniversary.
The atmosphere at Cosy Club is wonderful, (and cosy, duh) the staff are so lovely and accomodating and the food is literally out of this world.
There’s plenty to choose from on the Cosy Club menu, from burgers to salads to steaks but my absolutely favourite is the tapas menu that they offer. There’s 10 different dishes to choose from on the tapas menu and it was honestly so difficult to narrow it down to just six (they have an offer where you can get 3 dishes for £11.95 so Matt and I shared six, obvs).
The pigs in blankets are coated in a delicious, sticky honey and cider glaze and omfg it is divine. They’re literally the things that dreams are made of and I want approximately 46 of them on my plate for Christmas dinner.
We also had buttermilk chicken which comes with a yummy chipotle mayo dip; the batter was cooked to perfection and the mayo was the perfect accompaniment that was teeming with flavour.
Matt and I were both a bit sceptical to order the squid as the last time we had it we both had severe food poisoning but squid is one of our absolute favourite dishes so we decided to go for it; and we certainly weren’t disappointed. Matt was still a little nervous about eating it so he didn’t have too much but I ate every last bit and it was SO good. The batter was light and crispy and the squid was perfectly cooked. The mayo that was served with it made the perfect partner and it was just so yummy.
The patatas bravas were absolutely delicious and were crispy on the outside but so light and fluffy on the inside. They came coated in aïoli and it was so tasty and the dish paired perfectly with the rest of the meal.
The pulled chicken and chorizo was Matt’s favourite dish and he loved it so much that he said he’s going to try and recreate it at home! The flavours worked so well together and the potatoes that came with it were delcious and crispy. I thoroughly enjoyed it but definitely not as much as Matt!
I think my favourite dish was probably the pork and beef meatballs as I’m literally obsessed with all kinds of Italian food at the moment (which I’m sure you’ll know if you watch my Instagram stories!). The meatballs were covered in a rich tomato sauce that had just a slight kick to it and they were cooked just right. They were flavoursome and so incredibly tasty that I could literally eat them every single day.
We both enjoyed a delicious mocktail; (I was driving and Matt loved the sound of his drink) I had a deliciously refreshing pink lemonade that was so sweet and moreish. Matt indulged in a berry delight and he said it was equally as delectable.
Cosy Club is definitely my new favourite place to eat in York and I’m already dreaming about my next visit. The service we received was absolutely exceptional (the waiter even offered to take our picture and didn’t think it was *too* weird that I was taking pictures of my food!). I couldn’t recommend Cosy Club enough and if you don’t live in York or you’re not making a trip here anytime soon then you’re in luck because Cosy Club has restaurants all over the country!
I’m going to go and daydream about those meatballs now *insert all the heart-eyed emojis here*.
