As observant readers of Buggles & Squeak will know, Squeak has a real penchant for all things 'Americana' when it comes to food. So when we read about the opening of the Eathouse Diner and we saw the words 'Southern Fried Chicken and Slaw', and 'Philly Cheese Steak Rolls' I knew that we would be heading there very soon indeed.
As we peruse the menu we notice that it is decidedly limited at lunch. There were few of the options that had had our mouths watering since we'd read about them. However, Squeak has always had a hankering for a Philly Steak roll, and there was a 'Philly Cheese Steak Sambo with onion jam and greens' and I have enjoyed a 'pulled pork' roll in the past, so thought I would order the 'Pulled Spicy Pork Sambo with sour plum sauce, apple and fennel'. I was very excited about this choice, especially because of the flavour combinations at play. I also decided to accompany this with a 'Dulce de Leche milkshake'.
We have not written this place off though. We really WANT to like the Eathouse Diner, and certainly many other reviews have been lavishing praise on it already, but we will reserve our final judgement until we have returned for dinner. We'll see what happens then... stay tuned!
