crispy Manchego cheese lollipops
Red wine is always a good option on a cold and rainy day
They brought out this basket of goodies without us even having to ask. Such a rarity in London to have good service! Three kinds of homemade bread. I try to only eat one piece of bread at dinner but these were so good that I had all three.
|The “new spicy patatas bravas”|
These little bites were melt in your mouth potato deliciousness. So warm and gooey. The sauce on top reminded me of the spicy mayo sauce we had last night.
|Fried squid “A la andaluza” with lime and Ali oliption|
Calamari fries! I prefer mine a bit crispier but all the more healthier this way.
|Prawns “a la plancha” garlic-parsley oil|
You couldn't pay me to eat these shrimps with the heads on em a few months ago but I'm a big girl now and can cut the heads off myself :) Very well seasoned, plump, and juicy.
|Basque style monkfish casserole, griddled razor clams, broad beans, asparagus tips, parley jus|
This dish was probably my least favorite. I thought the sauce lacked any real flavor and the fish was too chewy for my liking. I've decided that monkfish is probably one of my least favorite fish. I like fish that are light, flaky and buttery and monkfish does not possess these qualities.
|Red wine caramelised ox tail, with green apple “textures”|
The ox tail was meaty and sweet from the red wine carmelisation.
|Sautéed spinach, pine nuts and raisins|
|Char grilled baby lamb cutlets, aubergine puree, manzanilla green olives, glazed potato|
|Caramelized torrija (Spanish bread pudding), Crème Catalan ice cream|
I have to stop eating so much dessert. I'm getting spoiled! The sugary crust on top of the bread pudding was amazing.
|Madelines with a lemon syrup drizzle and chocolate truffles|
More dessert to top off the amazing meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.
Yawwwn.... watching Notting Hill and dozing off early tonight!
