Paradise Palms

Paradise Palms is a tropical, neon oasis tucked away from the city center where you can happily sit for hours trying their extensive cocktail menu happy as a clam.

And the only way to work your way through their liquor menu sensibly, is to order a tasty selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes to nibble while you sip.

I began with Tommy’s Margarita; a faultless, zesty blend of El Jimedor Reposado Tequila, Agave, Lime and Orange Bitters that required sheer will power not to down in one.

Their sweet potato fries are divinely addictive and their mac and cheese is one glorious gooey mouthful after the next. Although the batter was slightly too thick and stodgy for my taste, their choice of friable veggies – crunchy broccoli, baby corn and sweet potato, as well as the standard courgette and aubergine- made good soldiers for dipping into their sweet smokey barbecue sauce.

Portions are generous so instead of dessert I opted for their Koko Loco Espresso Martini which coats your mouth in a sweet, silky concoction of Koko Kanu Coconut Rum, Araku Coffee Rum Liqueur and an Artisan Roast Espresso Shot.

So i say treat yourself; order one of their delicious cocktails or 5, indulge in baskets upon baskets of their fried treats and enjoy this neon paradise.
