There’s a whole section of the menu devoted to eggs (oh yeah, I’m serious) and we couldn’t resist the sound of the Spanish breakfast eggs with patatas bravas and chorizo. I’m so glad we ended up ordering this as it was one of my favourite dishes of the night – it’s one of my must order dishes for this restaurant.
The other dish we ordered from the egg section was the pan-fried duck egg, confit leg and cassoulet. Catherine and I were really excited about this dish, but frankly we were all very underwhelmed. I thought the egg was overcooked and that the duck was fairly tasteless. I wouldn’t order it again, but it certainly wouldn’t put me off returning to the restaurant.
Okay, so I’m meant to be all healthy eating and all pre-Croatia so I felt the need to order some sort of vegetables or salad and when I saw the heirloom tomato salad, truffle burrata, basil and gazpacho vinagrette, I knew it was going to be a good one.
The tomatoes are divine, and the burrata just tops it all off. Deee-licious
The next dish really cleared the tastebuds, was zingy, fresh and really beautiful: the raw Orkney scallop (served ceviche style) with yuzu, radish and cucumber. I just wished there had been a little more of this dish as it was fairly small – top tip, order more than one of these!
You might think that coming to a beautiful restaurant and ordering a toastie is a little strange – but this is one toastie that needs to be eaten: jamon, manchego and quail’s egg. Oh yeah. It’s all of the good things in one place!
Really quite incredible and another must order for you.
So I won’t lie, we weren’t full at this point. As in, were still quite hungry. So what were we to do? Order more dishes..! We opted for the rose veal & foie gras burgers with pulled pork, avocado and pickled cucumber.
