Ex-army chef opens second eating site

Have your say

A FORMER army chef has opened up his second business in Doncaster town centre - and already has expansion plans.

Ex-soldier James Morris, and business partner Paul Himsworth, who already run the Java Deli café, Waterdale, have now added a takeaway called Rodini’s to their interests.

It is also at Waterdale.

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster, officially opened new business.

James, who trained as an army chef, has a varied CV having worked at the House of Commons, a top restaurant in the Caribbean and has catered for the cast and crew of Emmerdale.

Paul used to run Italian restaurant Santini’s on Copley Road.

Rodini’s specialises in home made hot and cold food and also sells newspapers.

James said: “We use locally sourced produce and halal meat with a focus on value for money meal deals.

“Waterdale is a good location for a café - or two - with the courts, job centre, police station and council offices all within walking distance.

“We already have plans for opening a second Rodini’s.”
