Inspiration for your next restaurant experience in Norwich, post lockdown
The lockdown didn’t stop the fine foodies of Norwich, we carried on eating in the new normal and out of the embers came some mighty fine new places to eat.
Oishii took over the food at Chambers Cocktail bar in the city with an Asian inspired street food menu. A collaboration between The Hen House Kitchen and Moco, both street food vans, means you can choose Hen House’s crispy fried chicken burgers like the Godzilla with crunchy Katsu chicken, pickled ginger and Japanese mayo or opt for Moco inspired rice boxes along with crispy wings and Korean topped fries. If you love brownie tag on a miso caramel topped gooey chocolate hit delight.
Connaught Kitchen has been recently renovated by team Moco as a local’s café offering breakfast and brunch, plus fine cakes and bakes. They will also focus on foodie events like tapas weekends and pop ups with their street food buddies.
A new Middle Eastern Shawarma café opened its doors in lockdown on Unthank Road. 1st Shawarma includes authentic naans and Turkish bread and proper shawarmas, nothing like a doner, along with okabasi coal cooked kebabs and Persian sides.
Chick Inn is a rotisserie eat in or takeaway, once Micawbers Tavern, on the corner of Pottergate. The chicken is slowly cooked in house for tenderness and served with fries, house slaw, smashed avocado and lots of sauces. Their sticky BBQ is divine!
