Last month I spent a lovely day with the girls and my mother at East Gate Llanelli. We spend a lot of time at the East Gate development especially at the cinema, I take the girls there at least once a month. The development also houses Nandos, Hungry Horse, Red Hot American Diner, a gym as well as The Odeon, Costa Coffee and now Joe’s Ice Cream parlour too.
We were invited to have a bit of a food filled day. We began with a meal at Red Hot Diner, this is an American themed restaurant which serves lots of typical diner food and also has a pancake house! The girls enjoyed The Statue Of Liberty.. or as Chloe calls her the lady with a lollipop.
Inside the diner is a play area for little ones, ah this does make meal times or at least the wait for the food to arrive so much easier.
I chose a Mojito mocktail which was delicious and the girls had blackcurrant squash served in cute milk bottles which they adored.
I chose a Southern fried chicken wrap whilst my mum opted for the salad and Izzy had macaroni cheese. Word of warning.. the portions are enormous!!! We really struggled to finish and had to say a sorrowful no to the offer of pancakes for dessert. The food was freshly prepared and really tasty. Service was friendly and there is a relaxed, fun atmosphere in the restaurant.
Next up we strolled over to The Odeon to collect our cinema tickets and our indulgent coffees from Costa Coffee. At Costa we were treated to hot drinks and cakes before moving on to collect our family meal deal at Odeon which included popcorn, drinks and sweets for the girls. We saw Pete’s Dragon and ah it is such a fabulous film, perfect for all generations.
We finished up at Joe’s Ice Cream parlour with a Scarlets Sundae..it sent me into a bit of a food coma but it was delicious.
