IL Torrente, Benfleet.

Food OK but overpriced and I think they are trying to cash in on an upmarket South Benfleet clientele. They didn't have Amaretto which is odd for an Italian restaurant and I saw them make an Irish coffee and stir the cream in. Don't think they will be around long unless they up their game and drop their prices.

Anatolian - Benfleet.

Reminded me of the sort of place you get in tourist resorts on the Med apart from the fact it is freezing inside and you get a blast of cold air every time someone walks through the door. This happens quite often because there is a takeaway counter At the front of the premises. Food was just OK and my iskander kebab was very greasy. I wouldn't return but it is packed a lot of the time. Strangely most of the male diners looked like Gregg Wallace. My clothes stank of lamb fat and grilled meat afterwards so don't wear anything nice.

Henry Burgers, Southend

Located in the old Sun Rooms/Going Bros fishing tackle, knife, black widow catapult and ninja throwing star shop which also used to be a morgue back in the day.

Burger and fries was about £13 but really tasty and decent portion size. ****tails and craft beers are also served and whilst pricey are decent quality. I had a few Hawaiian beers which were great. Our table of four spent about two hundred quid but most of that was on drink and we went fairly large. The music was great with mainly 80's electro and soul. Not cheap but great food and a decent night out.
