Anchorage is a brand new addition to the food scene in Sheffield and in my opinion, it’s a bloody brilliant addition to the scene as well. I was lucky enough to win a half price meal for the opening week so that armed with plenty of curiosity and all the good things I’d read online, I headed down there for probably one of my favourite meals ever.
As it is a new establishment and I really wanted to try out the menu fully so I opted for 3 courses because as we all know I can not skip dessert however full I may be. For starters I had the chopped salad which though looked slightly unimpressive when the small ramekin arrived was a deceptive course. It really was the most tasty salad I have had in a long time – green beans, white cabbage, Bibb lettuce and chopped egg all mixed together with lemon and dill mayo – made for so many lovely flavours. It really was a nice addition with the egg instead of a lot of other chopped salads I’ve had which is usually greens and a usually quite bad dressing. This you could tell was fresh ingredients, made to order and with different yet tasty flavours, it was an impressive salad.
I may have been full but nothing was stopping me from eating dessert because that dessert menu is to die for! As soon as I saw the words – waffles, caramelised apples and cinnamon, I was all over that. Literally the best decision I have ever made. Those waffles were the best waffles I have had since I was in Belgium two years ago – soft and with just the right amount of sweetness to them. Apples caramelised with cinnamon is genuinely the stuff of my food dreams and I could easily have eaten about two bowls just of the apples if I’m honest. A simple, authentic American dessert that tasted so damn good!
All together it would have come to just over £20 for 3 courses and 2 drinks [one of which a massive cocktail!] which is VERY reasonable for the quality of food, the freshness of ingredients and the portion sizes on offer. I know for a fact I will be back to Anchorage very soon [I’m planning on taking everyone I know so that should add up to plenty of visits!] because there is no way I can stay away from that Mac’n’Cheese Burger and those Waffles for very long. Thanks for such a lovely meal Anchorage, you really are up there as one of my favourite places to eat in Sheffield.
