Comfort food for winter

TGI Friday competition

As the chilly weather kicks in, we turn to comfort food to warm ourselves up. What could be better than tucking into something hearty on a cold evening? Whether you're after a burger, fish and chips or a big bowl of cheesy pasta, there’s soul food for everyone at Highcross – it’s guaranteed to satisfy your cravings.

Asian-style curry

Winner, winner chicken dinner. Hit the cosy jackpot with the classic Japanese Katsu Chicken Curry from Wagamama at Highcross. It’s a crispy breaded deep-fried chicken cutlet slathered with silky luxurious curry sauce served over a bed of fluffy rice. Offering crunch, spice and sauce, this is food that’ll keep you going all winter long.

All American burger

One look at TGI’s The Warrior burger and it just screams comfort. Double stacked prime beef patties, grilled cheese and bacon in a toasted bun? Say no more. Give in to that all-American goodness and prepare to roll your eyes back in bliss.

Or why not try something a little different but equally as indulgent with the Limited Edition Lobster Surf n Turf burger. A word of warning, though: bring napkins.

Classic Italian dishes

Carb-loading is the perfect prescription for cold weather. Feast your eyes on the Zizzi’s pasta menu at Highcross – it’ll keep you warm and bring pure joy to your mouths. Do as the Italians do and order the lasagne. Slurp up satisfying handmade pasta drenched in cheese, rich ragu and smooth béchamel sauce. Bella!

If baked pasta’s your thing, head to Bill’s and give in to the American comfort food classic that is mac and cheese. You can’t go wrong with gooey cheese!

Top fish and chips

There’s a reason why classics are classics for a reason. Keep a good thing going by helping yourself to one of the nation’s favourite dish. That’s right, we’re talking about good ol’ fish and chips. Get your fix of crispy golden batter, fluffy chunky chips, the option of mushy peas plus a sprinkling of vinegar at Bill’s.

Moreish veggie dishes

Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice! Don’t think we’ve forgotten about you. Comfort food can be just as comforting, if not more, without the meat. Think veggie stews and meat-free pies, to vegetable chilli and pasta bakes.

For a hearty vegetable curry that’s bursting with fiery and punchy flavours, get stuck into the Turtle Bay Trina Aubergine Curry.
