Humble Harrys occupies a spot in the buzz shopping centre that I’ve always considered doomed. Seeing the passage of one failure after another I wasn’t expecting much from the latest occupants, however Humble Harrys has been a lovely surprise. The interior of this restaurant has been completely refurbished and now boasts a fresh, uncluttered vibe in mint green and grey. The waiters were all extremely helpful and willing to pitch in to assist should our specific waiter be busy. And there is a friendly family atmosphere to this spot with many off the patrons greeting the manager and waiters like friends.
But the true star of this restaurant is the food. I’ve previously had their pork and emmental sandwich which came with curly fries and delicious, flavoursome and crispy pork crackling. What a treat.
This time I shared the Greek meze platter. The platter consisted of fried and battered aubergine and zucchini, Taramosalata, tsatsiki , sour dough toast, fried baby squid, haloumi and tomato and olives. There was nothing on this plate that wasn’t delicious and if I had to fault anything it would be one piece of aubergine that was slightly bitter.
The zucchini was a favourite as the batter was well spiced and flavoursome. As was the squid which were crisp yet not chewy and tasted fantastic with a dash of lemon juice.
All together I’m loving this restaurant and I’m sure that they will be able to turn the tide of the ‘doomed’ venue at the Buzz. I’ll definitely be back to try a few more of their dishes!
