Dining Out in Cornwall
In recent years, Cornwall became known as a food lover’s destination. Though Cornish Heavy Cake, pasties and saffron buns are local traditions, the variety of fresh produce and seafood attract outsiders. Celebrity chef Rick Stein has four eateries located throughout Padstow.
Stein’s Fish and Chips offers battered, fried or grilled fish that include everything from scallops to salmon. Feast on grilled haki with laksa noodles at Rick Stein’s Café or indulge in a fine dining experience at Stein’s “The Seafood Restaurant” where menu selections include Padstow lobster.
