Go around the world in 80 minutes at Giraffe, the globally inspired chain that dares to put edamame, za’atar-spiced naan and Thai stir-fries on one menu. Not only that, it adds sunny-natured waiters, a soundtrack of peppy world beats, and some groovy smoothies to the animated mix. The result? An eatery you can trust for a not-too-intimate date or family meal with hard-to-please ‘tweens and teens. The assault of colourful options, from breakfasts to sharing plates, desserts to coffees, should suit those wanting to please larger groups, but purists may find it all a bit like ersatz ‘fusion’. A full list of wines, beers and cocktails is bolstered by bottles of Brooklyn lager and Rekorderlig cider aimed at the hipper customer. Around-the-clock deals help to keep bills down.
