I’m not the biggest fan of the film Forrest Gump but I do love a themed restaurant and the new Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is an awesome new addition to the mass of restaurants in the Leicester square area.
It’s not cheap I will put that out there to begin with but its the perfect treat especially for Gump lovers and seafood eaters because the menu is predominately seafood.
The cocktails are amazing but bloody strong so tread carefully, my favourite was the Starboard Sunrise.
I kicked it all off with the Shrimp Shack Mac ‘n’ Cheese. A rich and creamy macaroni cheese with chunks of shrimp – in all honesty I could quite happily have just had this as a main it was so good!
I followed this up with Forrests Sea Food Feast. Southern Fried Shrimp, Seafood Hush Pups and Fish&Chips with a large number of dipping sauces. Now i’m not going to lie I was pretty much already full from the starter and with the huge portion sizes I didn’t get too fully enjoy the feast however I did sample all of them and enjoyed every single one.
I didn’t really plan on blogging about this restaurant so loads of photos didn’t occur but I would happily go back and check out what else they have to offer.

I’ve been wanting to tell you all about this gem since I discovered it but I also want to keep it my little secret because table space is limited! WARNING if you don’t like seafood then don’t go here because its literally seafood and more seafood.
A and I hadn’t seen each other for a good month so decided it was time for a good old chit chat before she jets off on holiday, both of us were craving seafood and whilst trawling the internet discovered this little gem SeaWise in Camden. Now normally I am a Central London type of a girl – you know Covent Garden, Picadilly etc but I was excited to go a little further a field.
We arrived after getting a little lost-it’s within Camden stables and were welcomed into a little wooden shack of wonder that was bustling with people and mouth watering food. I suggest booking you can do so online. We were seated and after a few giggles with the waiter were left to peruse the menu which was filled with promise.
We shared starters which although they look plain were so tasty. Calamari with tartar sauce and Bang Bang prawns. The Bang Bang prawns were new to us and omgosh I could have eaten a whole platter to myself; the perfect mix of spices, crunchy batter and meaty prawns and the calamari well you can’t really go wrong with calamari.
Again we shared main courses because we just couldn’t decide on just one dish each. A picked the dressed crab with salad and I picked garlic lobster tail with chips. Everything is fresh, its bought that morning at the market and you can really tell when you taste the food; it’s simple but delicious. The crab was fantastic, it’s a cold dish and really refreshing in the summer with its colourful salad. The lobster tail was, well I really have no words it was so good. Just meaty, lobstery yumminess, like I said no words.
After paying our very reasonable tab -I don’t like discussing money but two courses of fresh seafood and two alcoholic drinks was around £25.00 each BARGAIN. We bumped into this little fellow outside the restaurant his name is Rascal and he is a French Bulldog and Pug cross. SeaWise is the perfect place for either a quick snack or a full on dinner, everything is fresh and cooked to order but what makes this place is the staff literally the friendliest people I have ever met in a restaurant.
