It’s Friday… YAY!
Hoping the day flies by because I officially entered holiday mode as of 6am this morning 🙂 actually feel sick with excitement haha! Like a kid at Christmas!!!
Anyway, thanks for all the likes on last nights outfit!! I had ordered the top a good few weeks ago from Ali Express and it arrived earlier this week and I loved!!
Myself and my hubby headed to Fifty50 for a nice meal. I won a 3 course meal for 2 with a bottle of wine, and was dying to try this place out so we booked in before we head away! One word… AMAZING!
This place only opened it’s doors on 22nd August 2014! There had been a number of other restaurants in this space prior to the 3 owners taking over and bringing us this little diamond to dine in! I had never seen it so busy before Fifty50 took over!
It has been completely transformed into an amazing place to dine with an amazing atmosphere!
When you go in your taken to a little couch area while waiting for your table and you can order a drink while you wait! This was a great little touch and gives time to take a little look at the menu and decide what your going to have…
The menu is fantastic, so much to choose from and everything just sounded so tasty so it took us forever to finally decide what we were going to have!!
Clonakilty Pudding Starter
Hot Buffalo Chicken Wings
I ended up going for the chicken wings and OMG they were delicious! They were piping hot, crispy and just the right amount of sauce! So yummy! Clive went for the Clonakilty Black Pudding starter, and MADE me taste it! I have never put black pudding past my lips, I know how it’s made :(, but he was so adamant that I try it out and I did and holy shamoly! It was soooo delicious! I kept asking for more haha! Seriously, try this out, even if you are not a lover of pudding, it’s a must!!!
Fillet Steak strips with asparagus in a white wine cream
Garlic Flat Bread
Chicken stuffed with Parma ham with a mushroom sauce & potato au gratin and roasted veg
I went with the pasta and garlic flat bread and it was just so tasty! I couldn’t fault it at all, I just couldn’t manage to eat it all, and the staff were so kind they even packed up what I didn’t manage to eat to take home with us. Clive was delighted with that, his lunch sorted for today 🙂 His dish was equally amazing! I love nothing more than my food arriving piping hot, and everything was exactly that when it was put in front of us, even though the place was jam packed solid, with no tables free!!
We got chatting to two lovely ladies who were sat at the table next to us and got such a laugh out of them! They were lucky enough to get to try out a new cocktail that hasn’t yet gone onto the Fifty50 menu and insisted we try it too, and OMG! Amazing! Once it’s on the menu I will tell you exactly what I’m talking about, and you HAVE to try it!!!
Dessert time! I had my mind made on this from the min I seen the dessert menu! Malteasers cheese cake! OH YES! Seriously!!! I could of ate 10 of them! Clive’s hot chocolate brownie was unreal too!
Hot Chocolate Brownie
Malteasers Cheese Cake = YUM
We don’t drink wine, and I just had a soft drink and Clive had a bottle of Corona, and at the end when we were finished we were waiting to pay the drinks bill and they wouldn’t hear of it! Because wine was included in our competition prize and we didn’t have it and had a drink each they wouldn’t charge us, which was so kind of them to do!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in a buzzing atmosphere, with totally delicious food and chats with other diners! Thank you to all of the lovely staff at Fifty50 for a great evening. The customer service was outstanding, and food top of the range, compliments to the chefs!! We will be back very soon and wish you all the best with your continued success in the heart of Ashbourne!
Honestly, try it out people, you will not be disappointed! But make sure to book a table as it’s always so busy and you don’t want to be disappointed if they don’t have a table when you arrive!!
They are Located just across from Tesco in Ashbourne Town Centre, and you can contact them on 01-8499777 to reserve a table!
Let me know if you try it out and what you think 🙂
