Today I spent my Sunday roaming around the Tobacco Docks sampling some of londons hottest dishes at Taste Of London’s festive edition. I pride myself in my eating abilities on days like today and certainly made the most of it.
We worked our way through delights like beef Shortrib, lamb Dhaansaak, salted caramel soft serve ice cream and many, many tiny shots of flavoured vodka. It was like a whirlwind of taste sensations and I’ve fallen in love with meat again after gorging on some of the most delicious beef I’ve ever come across.
Café Spice Namaste: Dhaansaak – Spiced Lamb in Lentils served with Cumin Rice. Tender, rich, delicious.
Tom’s Kitchen: Truffled Macaroni Cheese. Apple Glazed Pork Belly, Grain Mustard and Sage Mashed Potato. Pork crackling of absolute dreams.
Molé Taco Bar: Crispy Patatas Bravas with Chipotle Cream. Guacamole with Tortilla Chips. Beef Shortrib Taco, Pickled Red Onion and Black Bean Cream. So good it deserves 2 pictures and so good I need it in my mouth again.
Pont St: Stilton Cheese Balls with Quince Jelly. Mezcal and Lime Cured Salmon with Whipped Avocado, Coriander and Chilli. Belgraves Bespoke Truffle Burger. Pretty sure the burger could make it into my top 3 but 2 bites weren’t enough to justify it. Beyond sensational.
Resealable canned water. With really good looking boys serving it. Pretty great.
Hix: Whipped De Beauvoir Smoked Salmon with Pickled Cucumber. Peruvian Gold Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb. Insanely rich. Ever so slightly sent me over the edge but worth it nonetheless.
The Truscott Cellar: Colcannon with Ragstone Basil and the days winning dish Beef Cheek, Smoked Mash, Crispy Shallots. I can’t even. The beef was just beyond anything I’ve ever tasted. We cut through it with a spoon. Need I say more?
Nespresso Amaretto Latte. Sorted me right out.
Tredwells: Salted Caramel Soft Serve, Ginger Cake Crumble. Yes, yes, YES. Just yes. Gutted I was too full for anything else but yes.
