HOTSPOT: The Soar Point

EN

My last but not least meal on my final day in Leicester is finally eating fish and chips. I realized I have eaten way to much fried stuff in my mini UK trip of mine but fried stuff and a foodie glutton like me just go hand in hand. And how can you skip fish and chips, the ultimate British food when you are in the UK?

Say that in your best British accent (mine failed).

We had fish and chips at a pub restaurant The Soar Point.

Since my British accent isn’t good I went making my own kind of fun word twists and teased my British friend W. who cringed each time I said: chips and fish or fries and fish. lol sorry not sorry.
And for some reason I keep pronouncing sour instead soar in The Soar Point.

Anyways, on to the food.

The pretty colorful menu and the dish options were screaming at me ‘pick me! Pick me!’ because there were so many delicious sounding options. But I restrained and only ordered fish (cod) & chips and also because I had to catch my train back to London as well.

The food arrived and presentation wise it looks really appetizing and pub-ish as the fish and the chips is served on a tin tray. Even our sauces and cutlery came in this cool tin bucket.

The fish and chips were such a portion that I couldn’t finish it completely sadly but oh man how crispy was that fish batter!

Along with the relaxed and modern pub sphere I really can’t find any faults at The Soar Point. It was sad that I had to catch that train back to London otherwise I’d loved to stay for another hour with proper dessert.

Mijn laatste maaltijd op mijn laatste dag in Leicester is eindelijk het eten van de geroemde ‘fish and chips’ oftewel gefrituurde kabeljauw met friet. Ik besef dat ik op de dagen dat ik in UK ben best wel veel gefrituurde dingen achter mijn kiezen heb gehad maar een eetmens (en vreetzak) als ik gaan nou eenmaal hand in hand samen met lekker eten. En hoe kun je fish and chips, het ultieme Britse gerecht overslaan als je in het Verenigd Koninkrijk bent?

We hadden fish and chips in een typische pub restaurant genaamd: The Soar Point.

Aangezien mijn Britse accent niet keurig is, maakte ik mijn eigen grappige draai aan en plaagde hiermee mijn Britse vriend W. die ineenkrimpt elke keer dat ik zei: chips and fish or fries and fish’. lol sorry not sorry.
En raar genoeg bleef ik steeds ‘sour’ wat zuur betekent in het Engels zeggen in plaats van Soar van The Soar Point.

Anyways, over naar het eten toe.

Het mooie kleurrijke menu schreeuwde ‘neem mij! Neem mij!', want oh-oh wat waren er heerlijke klinkende opties aanwezig. Maar ik hield me in en bestelde alleen fish & chips en daarnaast moest ik mijn trein terug naar London niet missen.

Het eten kwam en de presentatie ervan zag er super smakelijk en pub-ish uit. De fish and chips is geserveerd op een tinnen lade. Zelfs onze sauzen en bestek kwamen in deze coole tinnen emmer.

De fish and chips was van grote portie dat ik niet helemaal kon opeten helaas maar oh man hoe knapperige was dat vis beslag!

Samen met de ontspannen en moderne pub sfeer is moeilijk om fouten te traceren bij The Soar Point. Het was jammer dat ik die trein moest halen anders zou ik graag nog een uur of twee willen blijven met het juiste dessert.


 We ordered:

  9. AHHH! I would totally just throw any food restrictions I have out the window when heading into any fish & chip or fried seafood type place! I really love fish & chips but rarely eat it or make it! I usually would have to leave chips because the fish is much more important! Glad that this place was great! :)

  14. Mmm I never went to The Soar Point when I was in the UK for the summer a while ago, but it looks darn delicious. I miss proper fish & chips myself, I'm sure there's gotta be a place around here that can do a decent enough job of making some. Looks fantastic!!!
