Gallimaufry Bristol, lovely little plates of yummy food

I have been hassled for some time to try this place by several people, the most persistent being Rachel, my blog inspiring daughter. I was really looking forward to it as it was described as a selection of small plates, my favourite as long as there are a LOT, and each one was described brilliantly to lure me in.

Lots of delicious little dishes, one or two that were a tad disappointing but I was assured that they were normally much better. This looked to me like a hipster joint, it often does live music and is very popular with young Bristolians (I am neither hip or young or from Bristol but willing and able). The decoration is great and the staff were welcoming. While we waited to decide on the small mountain of food that we were going to order we snacked on fried maize which I had never had before and would definitely have again.
