Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2014 edition.

Princes Square has become somewhat of a dining haven for shoppers. Among the eclectic range of dining options is Buzzy Wares, which has held residence in the square’s courtyard for over 25 years. The North American / Mexican menu plays it relatively safe (think nachos and quesadillas) but executes most to a high degree. Enfrijoladas – crisp tortilla topped with chipotle pork – makes for a sizable and punchy starter that is topped with pico de gallo and refritos. A salmon and pea fishcake is boosted by the addition of smoked fish and lifted by a sharp, homemade tartar sauce. A series of burgers, including a surprisingly well paired cajun spiced and blue cheese combination, accompanies fajitas, enchiladas, and meat dishes in a lengthy main course list. Artisan hot dogs, with a suggested pairing of Prosecco, also make an on-trend appearance. Cheesecake is a house speciality and justifiably so; the New York style of baking the dessert can prove tricky yet this is a fine example of how it can work.
