Saying ‘Yes’ to new suggestions can take you down some fun paths.
And, as we have learned from our holidays, this can be especially true if you say it in another language.
Say ‘Si!’ to today’s Big Deal from Si! Café:Bar:Restaurant in Irvine and take the path marked ‘Fine food in a fashionable setting’.
Si! is set over two floors of a rather striking building on Irvine’s Kilwinning Road.
Ideal for casual dining with friends and family, it offers several stylishly decorated spaces.
As well as a beer garden, there is a variety of booths and table settings – perfect for everything from a quiet drink with friends to a big family celebration.
This Big Deal is available from noon to 9pm, Sunday to Friday, and is for two people to each have a starter and main course.
Dishes may change according to the seasonal produce available, but expect starters like soup of the day with tomato bread, chicken liver and brandy parfait with red onion jam and toasted brioche, and roasted red pepper and goats’ cheese bon bons with spiced aioli and rocket salad.
Mains may feature the chilli, ginger and soy glazed salmon fillet with charred pak choi and saffron potatoes with soy dip, the 24 hour braised shin of beef with smoked paprika mash, roasted winter vegetables and classic chasseur sauce, and the baby spinach, ricotta and piquillo pepper canneloni with tomato fondue and Arran cheddar crumb.
