Kiss Kiss Eatery


Our latest favourite Kiss Kiss has taken over Balmoral! Once home to a rundown drum shop, Kiss Kiss Eatery has brought the life back into the suburb. With a menu full of Thai-inspired dishes, Kiss Kiss is definitely the place to be.

Must try: the Scotch egg- so yummy, that even thinking about it now makes our tummy rumble

Dear Jervois

Geeks on Sainsbury
