Surf’s up. On a trip to Cornwall to surf in the cold November sea with the seals, this restaurant was recommended to me by my friend Mia who frequents St Ives.
Number of Rings: 10
Cost per ring: 25p
There’s no mistaking how cheap these rings our and I would like to suggest a number of factors that contributed to the price here:
- Firstly, location. These are not London prices are they.
- Secondly, shitness. These were gross.
These rings were made from frozen and they were substandard at that. They were very burnt.
The inner onion was almost completely separated from the batter, flopping out when I took each bite into the hollow batter. It was pretty hard to chew the inner onion off the ring which is a common problem with the bog standard frozen ring.
The smaller onion rings had that distinctive from-frozen taste and stodgy texture and the larger rings were too air filled to taste of anything.
Burnt, hollow, bog standard, frozen rings.
