One Ate Five is a typical lunch bar located on the north west corner of Victoria Square among other local businesses. The focus of the menu is on simple and tasty dishes with a handful of breakfast options, burgers, hot dogs, jacket potatoes and gourmet sandwiches to choose from. They have a selection of hot and cold beverages if you’re just in for a quick break.
Upon recommendation, I ordered the Marinated Lamb Jacket Potato with extra ham. The dish was ready after a 10 minute wait and was nicely presented. The potato was soft and delicate and covered with generous amounts of gooey cheese. The lamb was well marinated, and the meat was juicy and succulent. It’s saltiness was balanced the dollop of sour cream. This dish was so simple, rustic, delicious and satisfying.
With the number of trendy little cafes popping up around the place, one would think places like One Ate Five are a thing of the past. Not so, in this case. One Ate Five serves up cheap and delicious meals with the most friendly customer service. They’ve been around a lot longer than some of the other local businesses which means they’re certainly doing something right.
