Trigo Cafe

This amazing Pistachio Mousse was so delicious I just had to share it with you. They had many flavours but Pistachio is a favourite of mine and I was not disappointed it was heaven so if your ever in Corralejo , Fuerteventura I would recommend a visit to enjoy a nice refreshing cup of tea or coffee to go with one of the many delightful cakes & pastries

Suvlaki – Shoreditch

This is the sister restaurant to Suvlaki in Soho which I’d heard very good things about so when I looked on the website to find that they also had a restaurant in Shoreditch I couldn’t wait to visit. This restaurant is set at the end of the very bustling Brick Lane which is a great location. On entering you immediately smell the wonderful aromas of the food. We were greeted by Giulia who was an absolute delight and looked after us so well throughout our lunch. She showed us to our table which was the Naughty Corner a great little alcove set out for Two people. We looked at the menu which is Greek Tapas and just wanted to try as many dishes as we could although the advice we were given was between 3 & 5 plates per person depending on how hungry you are. After consulting with Giulia we chose a good variety of dishes . We started with a selection from the Small Plates section which were a Mediterranean Baked Feta , Courgette Fritters & the Olive & Citrus Wood Smoked Eel. All three dishes were amazing as was the Greek Salad side dish and the Pita Bread with Tzatziki.

We then moved on to the Suvlaki section where we had the Corn Fed Chicken & the Mount Olympus Wild Boar skewers both delicious. You could also have these as mini wraps or even a regular wrap but as we were sharing it was easier to have the skewers

MOUNT OLYMPUS WILD BOAR SKEWERS

The next section of the menu is the Signature dishes and these are a must especially the Spicy Lamb Chops which were stunning so a big thanks to Giulia for the recommendation. I also had to to have the Octopus which is a big favourite of mine and I would feel like I missed out if I didn’t try it and I’m so glad I did it was simply delicious

Now it was time for dessert of which you only have three to choose from but the ones we chose were delightful. The Chocolate Biscuit Cake and the Orange & Almond Cake paired with a shot of Mastiha a fabulous Greek Liqueur

ORANGE & ALMOND CAKE

This ended our time in the Naughty Corner and what was also an excellent lunch where the food and service was amazing. I would highly recommend this place as it’s everything you would expect from a small and friendly Greek restaurant and I for one hope to return soon. A final thanks to Giulia plus compliments to the chef 🇬🇷

My Marvellous Foodie March

This was certainly another great Foodie month for me with visits to a few of my favourites for a different type of occasion and a great new place for a Sunday lunch to where I’m looking forward to returning soon. I started with a visit to The Hoop where I’d previously enjoyed a fabulous Sunday Lunch but this visit was for a Chefs Tasting Menu and along with a guest wine producer made for a really great evening as the wine complimented the fantastic food. This was followed with a first visit to Thompson Dining in St Albans where we had the most amazing Sunday Lunch in fact it was a roast dinner to die for and definitely looking forward to returning very soon for a Tasting Menu

THOMPSON’S ST ALBANS

The following week it was another memorable visit to Core by Clare Smyth where the food , wine & service was once again outstanding and without any doubt will surely rise all the way to the top. In my mind it’s a must visit . Then it was a visit to my favourite place Haywards for a fantastic Tasting Menu evening a restaurant that is definitely going from strength to strength and one my county of Essex should be very proud of.

HAYWARDS

On the Sunday it was off to The Rabbits Pub for lunch and with great food & friendly service made for a great afternoon. The following Saturday took us back to Haywards but this time for a Cooking Demo which is always a good and interesting experience when you see the amount of work that goes into creating a dish.

My final visit of the month was a trip to Amersham and the amazing Artichoke for a glorious Full Tasting Menu Lunch with excellent food & service it’s definitely worth the trip

Well there you have it another amazing Foodie Month and one that I’ve truly enjoyed see you in April

The Marksman Pub

Set in the heart of the Hackney Road in East London this is very much a traditional old pub with the downstairs looking like it’s been kept in that style but the upstairs has been turned into a quirky and slightly retro dining room. You can just pop in for a drink and try one of there great local ales & lagers as we did a few weeks ago but it’s mainly a food place. While we were here last we looked at the menu which is changed daily , plus in seeing some of the food being served made us want to come here for lunch and yesterday that’s exactly what we did. When you book there is no guarantee where you’ll be seated but on this occasion we were seated upstairs. This was nice and a totally different atmosphere to downstairs especially yesterday as it was very busy. When you look at the menu you’ll see that the dishes are certainly different to any where else , but after they were explained but one of the very friendly staff we made our choices . Firstly we started with some Olives & Black Treacle Sourdough Bread . The we had our starters which were Devilled Mussels & Monks Beard and to say the Mussels were amazing is an understatement and my Tamworth Blood Pudding & Parsley which was heavenly

Then it was time for our mains of Braised Lamb , Peas & Wild Garlic (sadly no pic) but was fantastic and my fabulous Roast Hereford Rump of Beef which was simply stunning as were the Yorkshire Pudding , Roast Potatoes & Veg. These were matched with a delightful fruity Red Wine from Portugal

After a little rest it was time for desserts a delightful Sheep’s Yoghurt , Rhubarb & Rose and a delicious Chocolate Burnt Milk & Barley matched with a nicely chilled Banyuls a French Sweet Wine

SHEEP’S YOGHURT , RHUBARB & ROSE

CHOCOLATE BURNT MILK & BARLEY

This brought an end to a truly memorable Sunday Lunch and I can honestly say it won’t be to long before we return as the food was amazing and each member of staff was so warm and friendly.
