Ah Christmas. It’s that time again! Actually, I am pretty strict about when I start to celebrate Christmas. Put it this way, you won’t catch me putting my tree up in November! I’m certainly not a scrooge, but for me, there’s a time and a place for these things! That said, once the festive season hits, I am all for it. In our house, the whole month of December is about good food, seeing family and friends and winding down for the year.
So, it was brilliant timing when I was invited to pop along to the Christmas at Cosmo event at Cosmo Restaurant, in Southampton. It’s one of the new restaurants in Westquay and last week, they had a blogger event to launch their Christmas favourites menu. If you haven’t visited Cosmo before, its a buffet restaurant with fresh food from countries all around the world. You name it, they’ve got it!
You might have seen my franctic #christmasatcosmo hash tagging on my Instagram stories.. There was just too much good food to take pictures of! We were totally spoiled for choice and helped ourselves to all sorts including; sushi, pizza, aromatic duck pancake, Indian food and loads more. There’s even a Cosmo teppanyaki grill to cook fresh meat and seafood in front of you. My personal favourites were the aromatic duck pancakes and the cucumber maki sushi.
We were lucky enough to see a demo of the grill (plus the chef doing some rather impressive egg juggling!) AND if you manage not to overeat during the main courses, there are two enormous chocolate fountains; complete with skewers and various sweets and marshmallows to dip.
Ok so the idea of buffet restaurants is nothing new, but the food was honestly really nice and I can honestly Cosmo is the best of the ones I’ve tried so far. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back there for dinner- especially to try out the Christmas menu. The service was really good and our plates were cleared away really quickly after we had finished eating (thus making room for more plates!)
Has anyone else been and tried the Christmas menu at Cosmo? If you haven’t you can have a peek at their menu here.
