The Joiners is on an odd street. There seems to be a large amount of take aways on the street considering its size, and as the only establishments that warrant take aways are few on the street it seems quite odd.
We ended up in Hudsons. We had aimed to go to a Chinese but this caught our attention first. Hudsons is a Caribbean restaurant serving items such as Jerk Chicken, Goat Curry and Red Snapper. We were the only people that were in there, and the owner/chef seemed very keen to entertain us.
I went for Salmon Creole. The menu description didn’t really seem to describe a creole. I was expecting something similar to a Gumbo. What appeared was a Salmon fillet covered with Cajun spices and grilled. It was actually very nice. The outside had been blackened to a nice level, allowing you to experience the crunch as your teeth hit the soft salmon flesh inside. The spices left a nice tingle after you had finished chewing and they weren’t overpowering that you couldn’t taste the salmon or needed a glass of water to quench the fire in your mouth.
The salmon came with a nice salad of apple and tomato. The sweetness of them contrasting nicely with the spice of the salmon.
Despite us saying that we only had 45 minutes the chef took longer than that so we ended up having to take the food away. Don’t eat here if you’re in a rush.
But it was great value, great food and they even had a record player playing.
