What a week(end): I have been hidden under my duvet dealing with the mother of all colds/viruses. But it's a lovely Tuesday morning and I am trying to be productive so to start things off - a post to wet one's appetite.
The Kensington Quarter is a new restaurant that opened up at Hotel Indigo in Earl's Court.
The restaurant is modern with an eclectic menu and decor that has a decided touch of a 1950s diner/deli.
Her Fav Food generously asked me to join her again for luncheon after our fabulous time out at Pizza Union so we met up for a late 3 o'clock luncheon in Earl's Court at this charming new restaurant.
We started off our luncheon with their crispy calamari. The dish came with chilli and spring onion, tabouleh and harris aioli. The calamari was just as promised - nice and hot and crispy. I loved the tabouleh and Her Fav Food adored the aioli so it's a good thing it came with both ... perfect for sharing! :)
Next up were our main courses - Roast Sea Bass for yours truly that came with a Russian salad, lemon oil, potato galette and pea veloute. It was a piece of art work and just as delicious as it looked and the pea veloute was a perfect compliment to the fish.
Her Fav Food got the risotto and gave it two thumbs up. :)
Next up was dessert and after all those beautiful and colourful and flavourful dishes we were looking foward to seeing what was on offer.
We both LOVED the display choices for our desserts. Look at these fabulous dishes!
For our desserts, Her Fav Food ordered the above Delice which was rich, flavourful and looked like it would be perfect for a Christmas dessert with the berries.
Thanks to the waitress' recommendation, I ordered her favourite - the fondant.
It was amazing, warm, moist, spoon-licking good, and the ice cream helped counter balance the richness of the fondant.
Just take another peek... Yum, Yum.
Big thanks to The Kensngton Quarter for their hospitality and generosity. While my meal was comped, my opinions are all my own. And on wards to the lovely ambiance I mentioned earlier. There was a 1950s cafe/diner feel and also a hotel library and yet decidedly modern and inviting.
