It's been a while since i posted anything food related hasn't it? well, recently i paid a visit to Cottons as i was craving caribbean food and needed my fix.
My bf and i were both hungry and wanted to eat somewhere nearby and because i was craving caribbean food, he suggested Cottons (a bar/restaurant) as he had been here before. So, we made our way to Camden. Once we were inside, we were greeted and taken to our seats. It was pretty quiet when we got there (about 5;30pm) but it started to fill up within about an hour of being there. Whilst waiting for our food, we were singing along to some old school reggae hits lol their playlist was good.
For starters, i got the trio of fritters which consists of: a black eyed bean fritter, chick pea fritter and a sweet potato and pumpkin fritter with a chilli chutney. The chutney really complemented the fritters, all of the flavours meshed well together. Like three really wasn't enough for me lol
prior to coming here, my bf was telling me how amazing the drinks are, so i was really excited when they arrived. I took one sip of my pina colada and smiled at my bf lol he knew what that meant. I don't know about the other drinks but their pina colada...you know when you're lost for words? look just go there for the pina colada and tell me if you don't start smiling lol.
I really struggled to pick my main. The menu is quite limited in my opinion but after some time i settled on the sweet potato and pumpkin curry which was very flavoursome. Also for sides both me and my bf ordered plantain which was fried superbly, may i add (it came late, so that's why there is no pic lol)
For anyone wondering what my boyfriend ordered, his starter was the smoked barbecue pork ribs and for his main he ordered curried mutton, both of which he enjoyed.
Overall we had a great experience here- the staff were friendly and attentive, the food was flavoursome and beautifully presented and the drinks were amazing! i'll be back to try their other cocktails. Cottons would be perfect for dinner with your girls or a romantic dinner for two.
