#FoodandDrink | #EatingWithPrecious Reviews The Localist

Eating with Precious visited The Localist on a rather cold winter Monday evening but the experience did not disappoint.

What is The Localist Like?

The Localist has cool rustic exposed brick walls which then meet chic blue interiors throughout the restaurant, bar and bathrooms which give off a relaxed vibe.

What did EatingwithPrecious order?

BBQ Glazed Chicken Wings with paprika 

The chicken wings were all great sizes and so tasty. There is a sweet flavour with this dish from the BBQ and paprika rather than spicy.

A clear favourite of the evening.

Fried Mozzarella bites


This was served with avocado and sweet chilli sauces were good additions to the Mozzarella bites adding more flavour.

Truffle and Parmesan Fries 

The scent of the truffle fries is divine. I knew they were arriving as I could smell them from the kitchen.

These fries are made truffle oil rather than decorated with truffle shavings and garnished with Parmesan shavings.

Good portion size, arrived hot, great taste.

“Chef Special” Tempura Prawns 

This is a winner 🏆 ! Great tasting sweet chilli sauce and juicy prawns.

Main Courses:

Spicy Pork Sausage Burger

This is a handmade stacked and jam packed burger filled with broccoli, lettuce, tomato and smoked Scamorza cheese.  The European theme was clear with this burger with the use of Scamorza cheese from Italy.

This burger is a great portion size, it came piping hot and the pork sausage has a hint of spice which is just enough.  If you want more spice you could add the chilli oil which is provided on the table.

The burger is served with slices of sweet pickled gherkins on the side which brings a refreshing aftertaste from the burger.

Lemon and  Honey Sea Bream 

The sea bream was delicious with contrast of sweet from the honey and crunchy salad.  This was a good portion size and a healthy dish.

The Verdict:

The ⭐ dishes from the evening: BBQ Glaze Chicken Wings, Prawn Tempura and Lemon and Honey Sea Bream.

Would EatingwithPrecious recommend The Localist?  


The Localist has attentive staff, reasonably priced food and relaxed vibes where you can eat your food, have conversations and not feel rushed.  The only regret of the evening was not ordering the Prawn and Charcoal Burger bun also, but that is saved for another time.

The restaurant is bigger than it initially looks, the space is utilised well with various sections throughout the venue.

The Localist also offers deals like happy hour drinks and set menus and  adds a cool touch to even the smallest details. The receipts arrive in a trinket box below.

This place would be good for, catch ups drinks, meetings or an intimate dinner.

Thanks to The Localist team and Local Spoon.

#FoodandDrink | Sustainability at the Heart for New TPH of Chelsea

Yogesh Datta, Proprietor and Head Chef of The Painted Heron in Chelsea, is launching a new concept on the former site, with plant-based dishes taking centerstage and responsibly-sourced food and sustainability at its heart for late January 2018. After recognising a need for an Indian restaurant that could cater to a more health conscious clientele, Datta has created a totally new ethos for the menu. Modern and welcoming with a stripped-back décor, the reformed emphasis at the newly-named TPH of Chelsea will draw inspiration from the Indian subcontinent.

#SpaLife | Galgorm Resort & Spa (Belfast)

Galgorm is Northern Ireland’s premier luxury hotel and spa and having stayed there for two nights; I established almost instantly why it has this reputation.

Galgorm is situated just 30 minutes drive from Belfast International hotel and they offer a fantastic pick up and drop off service to and from the hotel for an affordable rate. For 30 minutes you can get chauffeured in top of the range vehicles. (We were picked up and dropped off in Range Rovers).  The service from the outset was phenomenal. On our drive to the resort, we were able to immerse ourselves in the beauty of the vast landscape. We were also given a detailed run through of the areas vast history as well as being given a rundown of the top celebrities and influencial figures from the worlds of beauty, fashion and entertainment who have frequented their resort.
