The Hotel Santiago resort in Calangute looked like fun, so I booked a week, all inclusive.
I'd heard of the Ace Café as a child, the legends of the 'ton up' boys who risked their lives on the - then - empty A1. I was in the area and figured a pilgrimage was in order.
I’ve written before that there are there are more than a hundred and fifty restaurants in the Canary Wharf campus, I wouldn’t have a problem going back to The Big Easy.
Overall a very tasty, lunch, and well priced when compared to other, larger, pizza restaurant chains.
Wherever I can, I'll choose a local coffee shop over a big chain, supporting local businesses rather than multinationals. I don't visit Frinton very often, but I know where I'll be going for my coffees in future.
A litre of beer, excellent barbecue food, more than I could finish, more on offer… for twenty quid? In the heart of Covent Garden? What's not to like?
All in all, pretty average, certainly nothing to complain about, but nothing to rush back for.
Overall, I would rate the Citrus 3 ½ - 4 stars. Certainly 4 Sri Lankan stars; if you set your expectations accordingly you'll have a great time.
All in all a pleasant enough meal, I enjoyed everything, but nothing blew me away. I wouldn't have a problem going back, but again I won't be rushing.
This chicken curry is the yardstick against which all future chicken curries will be measured and will, sadly, be found lacking
