Polly and I went to Freeport Braintree a little while ago, and after mooching around the shops and trying on ALL THE THINGS in the new Hollister/Gilly Hicks outlet store (we were very well behaved, and only bought a couple of jumpers), we were a bit peckish, so we wandered over to the restaurant-y bit, and spotted Dean’s Diner.
American-style diners are seeming to spring up all over the place, and Dean’s is pretty similar to others we’ve been to, but they’ve very tasty, regardless. After much deliberation of the huge menu, we opted for the Weekday Meal Deal, and it was yummy. If you can judge a place on its coleslaw (which you totally can), then this place makes the grade. Nom.
They had a huge poster up on the wall, too, of the Hot Wings Challenge – we didn’t try it, but if you’re that way inclined, there’s prizes to be won! We were trying to work out how it’s physically possible to eat 12 wings, let alone hot ones!!
