Went last night, they seem to be fixed on their new short menu now. Seemingly no side dishes at all, where did they go? Did I just miss them? They are listed on that menu but I am sure they weren't on the printed menu... Also there is no vegan option there now. Probably there never was a vegan option, but while I didn't know that the vegetable paella vegetables were honey roasted, or the vegetable fajitas were cooked in garlic butter I was OK. But now they blatantly list these critical details on the menu! Good for people with allergies or properly strict vegans I suppose.
Five of us went, my paella was a bit dull without any accompaniments. I managed to snaffle some bits and pieces from the two fajitas, they seem to have been a success. The other two chaps had chili though, and it was apparently not great, not at all spicy. The wife still likes it, but I have now officially gone off Escondido.
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a frenzy of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
