It’s the weekend, thank god! It’s been a long week for everyone, the weather’s been a bit naff and it’s really not been anything to write home about. May as well use this weekend to go out and treat yourself to some of Sheffield’s tastiest scran on offer and pocket appetising prices. Here’s what just a few of Wow247‘s recommendations…

The Rude Shipyard

From their very own Shipyard Omelette to their gluten free American style pancake stack, The Shipyard knows how to satisfy your taste buds. The quirky design of the shop is a cool alternative to your run of the mill cafe. Unknown to many, this little gem is also a bookshop, so you can spend a good few hours here.

Sheffield’s own little taste of Italy, hidden away inauspiciously on Abbeydale Road, proves that good quality Italian food doesn’t have to break the bank. Everything they sell, from the awesome coffee to their delicious deli sandwiches, are made with authentic Italian ingredients, many of which they sell on site as well.

Bragazzis, 224-226 Abbeydale Road, S7 1FL –

Blue Moon Cafe

Purveyors of vegetarian and vegan delights, Blue Moon Cafe, are entirely deserving of a mention in this list. Their homemade salads, stews, pies, and cakes are to die for, and are made with good quality, local produce. The clientèle come from all walks of life, giving the cafe a unique buzz and laid back atmosphere. (KM)

Need we say more? If you’ve not yet been to the Mexican canteen, you really need to and fast. Just go!

Greedy Greek Deli

The Greedy Greek has been around for donkey’s years and it’s easy to see why. In the summer, people spend warm evenings sat outside the restaurant, enjoying a freshly made kebab or some meatballs. It’s the closest thing you’ll get to Athens al fresco in Sheffield. The lunches are great, with wraps for under a fiver and large salad boxes packed with different treats for just over a fiver.

Saigon 68 Vietnamese Cafe

Saigon 68
There are dozens of great value places to grab a bite to eat along this stretch of London Road, but Saigon 68, formerly known as Pho 68, is probably the best.The time between ordering and your food arriving can be just five minutes – all it takes to stir fry some meat and vegetables. The portions are huge too – the big-bowl soups are delicious and more like small bathtubs, and staff are happy to pack up anything you can’t manage.

Bulters Balti House

Butlers Canteen, back when it was at the top of Broad Lane, is a Sheffield institution – it’s even rumoured that Picasso visited on his trip to Sheffield! Their high quality, good value authentic curries made business boom, and they have to scale up to a bigger premises further down the road. That said, the quality of the food and the service never took a hit, and it is still a favourite with spice lovers all over Sheffield.

Zing Vaa

Szechuanese goodness at Zing Vaa

Bang on one of Sheffield’s busiest high streets is this wonderful Chinese restaurant, which specialises in Dim Sum and Szechuanese cooking. Favoured by many of Sheffield’s Chinese community, this restaurant has a great range of authentic dishes at good prices, with the added bonus of early bird deals which are well worth taking advantage of.

Zing Vaa, 55 The Moor, more info 

The Harlequin

This pub, found between Wicker and Kelham Island, is a real gem. Its Sunday Roasts are  just £8 and are served between 12.30pm and 3pm every week. There’s always a great selection of roasts available, including a veggie option, and the Yorkshire puddings, made with beer batter, are particularly good. As you’re in a pub, it would be rude not to wash dinner down with a pint. (WR)
