Sultan Delight is a new shop opened on McCurtain Street, Cork, near the Everyman and if this post by Billy Lyons is right, near where the famous Hadji Bey had his shop until the 1970s.
The shop sells chocolate, Turkish Delight, teas and coffees, spices, cakes, biscuits and more. The chocolate on display is delicious! I had a Chocolate Orange and it was lovely. It’s very sweet and filling so you wouldn’t eat too many. The Chocolate Mint is really nice too and there’s a Chocolate Smarty in the fridge here at home I’m eyeing up but my son has first dibs on that. I’m sure he’ll share with his Dad. Yeah.
I also tried a delicious biscuit but I can’t remember what it was called so you’ll have to take my word on it that it was tasty. All the food is hand made, prepared by the owner, Yosra or the chefs at the nearby Sultan Restaurant. There’s also a small alcove in the back where you can enjoy a cup of your favourite beverage and a snack.
Go pay them a visit and look around. It’s wonderful to see such a selection of food in a small shop, you’ll love it!
There’s a market every Sunday morning/afternoon in Blackrock village, Cork and one of the highlights is the stall run by Taoufik Hamammi, owner of the Sultan restaurant in the city. They specialise in Lebanese and Moroccan food and it is delicious.
I’m making myself hungry looking at these photos, brb. Yum Yum!
If you live in Cork you’ll be familiar with KC’s in Douglas. Here’s their story.
I’m getting hungry for one of their pitas now!
Polldaddy is in Marrakesh for a week, staying in a riad in the medina. We had a delicious lunch today, probably the nicest we’ve had here in the riad and that’s saying something as they’ve all been exceptional.
If you ever find yourself in Reykjavik make sure you book a table in Grillmarkaðinn. Every single bite was a taste explosion. So delicious!
The ice cream dessert was actually a disappointment after the previous tasty dishes. As Lenny says, food in Iceland is damn good.
There’s a new restaurant in the location Bullys used to be on Paul Street. It’s Ketchup and we’ve just had delicious burgers there. Yum!
An advert in the Lifehacker RSS feed tells people how to lose stomach fat. Good thing too. The next post tells people how to put it on…
Could this be an evil plan by the Lifehacker folks to get more ad clicks? It’s a devious idea of course, and subtle but I’ll be keeping a close eye on future posts!
We called into Murphy’s Ice Cream in Dingle this morning. I bought a chocolate and mint ice cream mix. If you’re in the town you really should call in for a scoop or two! Yum!
The business is run by brothers Sean and Kieran who I had hoped would be there but unfortunately they were out. They blog at Ice Cream Ireland and both have twitter accounts: Sean, Kieran
For lunch today we went to Stix in Beaconsfield. It’s a lovely restaurant in a picturesque area outside London, with a car park right next to it.
Before I go any further, the owners are related to Matt so I could be accused of being biased. Still we had a great lunch there. I ordered a burger, the others ordered various tapas portions and Adam had chicken goujons, chips and peas and hasn’t been as relaxed in a restaurant since he was a tiny baby and slept through our excursions to a local restaurant in Blarney.
If you’re ever in Beaconsfield, make sure you visit Stix and say hi to Suzy, Steve and Dan!
Anyone for tea? Here’s what I usually put into a sandwich:
And all contained within lightly buttered brown sliced loaf bread. Yum.
Here’s the delicious chocolate cake we had in O’Briens in Blackpool Shopping Center a few days ago. Beautiful rich chocolate cake, with a layer of chunky chocolate cream through it. You don’t think I’d stop to take a photo of it before eating, do you?
Yes, there is a reason to this post. What do you eat for lunch? If it’s all sensible and boring, pig out once in a while, it’s good for you!
PS. I got nominated in a few sections of the Irish Blog Awards. Thank you to whoever nominated me. (No, it wasn’t me!)
