    Giggling kids

    Grace

    It's lovely to see a children's menu with mini portions from the main menu and not a breadcrumb, nugget or chip in sight. The Giggling Squid asked me to review their new children's menu which includes a selection of mild curries, finger food, noodles and rice dishes designed especially with "little people" in mind. I found a couple of little people (thank you Grace and Logan) and took them out for supper at the Bury St Edmunds branch. For £5.95 children get to choose two dishes each which come with free plain or sticky rice.  Logan, who declared fussy eater status on arrival went for the Grilled Pork Skewers and Chicken Fried Rice, having first tucked into a bowl of the spicy prawn crackers. Grace with a more adventurous and self assured palate chose Spring Rolls and a Pad Thai with Prawns, which she declared as yummy. Sadly the roti pancakes were not available for pudding (an extra £2.00) but the icecream was, and arrived with some colourful slices of fresh fruit on the side. Portions are very generous, in fact possibly too large for smaller children, but parents can always help out!

     Following the success of the pop up at the weekend we are pleased to say that we have been invited back by Pat and Paula at The Chequers to cook another supper on January 11th.  The same format; £20 per head. One great price. One great menu!

    Now you would have thought that between a blogger, a photographer and several helpers on the night that we would have managed a gallery of pictures for you to see. But we didn't manage any photographs and the pub looked great.  The best we could do is a slice of lemon meringue pie, so here it is. It went down very well with even a request to wrap some up to eat later!
