All American burger
One look at TGI’s The Warrior burger and it just screams comfort. Double stacked prime beef patties, grilled cheese and bacon in a toasted bun? Say no more. Give in to that all-American goodness and prepare to roll your eyes back in bliss. Or why not try something a little different but equally as indulgent with the Limited Edition Lobster Surf n Turf burger. A word of warning, though: bring napkins.

Carb-loading is the perfect prescription for cold weather. Feast your eyes on Zizzi’s pasta menu at Westquay – it’ll keep you warm and bring pure joy to your mouths. Do as the Italians do and order the lasagne. Slurp up satisfying handmade pasta drenched in cheese, rich ragu and smooth béchamel sauce. Bella!
Moreish veggie dishes
Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice! Don’t think we’ve forgotten about you. Comfort food can be just as comforting, if not more, without the meat. Think veggie stews and meat-free pies, to vegetable chilli and pasta bakes. A fan of fiery flavours? Wahaca have got you covered with their vibrant veggie enchilada and burrito offerings.
Traditional Greek food
If slow-cooked lamb and fresh seafood are the key to your heart, then head to The Real Greek at Westquay and order the aromatic Lamb Kefte (mince and marinated lamb with Anatolian spices). But, wait, no Greek dinner would be right without meze, so before you even think about tucking into your kefte, make sure start with classic Dolmades or Gigandes Plaki.
