A few weeks ago myself and Jigna decided to try somewhere different for lunch. I have to say the Sainsbury’s cafe hot chocolate has to be one of my favourites but when Jigna came across the Tarboush Cafe I was quite intruiged to check it out.
Based in Loughborough city centre the cafe is described as traditional yet modern bringing middle eastern flavours to the UK. As soon as we walked in we were blown away by the decor, I have to say I haven’t been anywhere like it before. We were greeted with a smile and the service throughout our visit was excellent.
Now onto the exciting bit.. The food. I opted for the Fresh Falafel and Spicy Potato served with humous and a seasonal salad. (And a side of chips!) The chicken was marinated in a spicy paste and the heat from the potatoes was just right. I wouldn’t ever think to have chicken and potato together but the texture from the potato was the perfect addition. If you’re anything like me, you’ll know it’s not easy find the perfect chip. Crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. These chips are probably some of the best I’ve ever had. (I’m sad we couldn’t finish them!)
Overall it was a perfect lunch. From the atmosphere to the food and service I can’t wait to go back. The price was also reasonable too – for the quality of food you could happily pay more.
