Knightsbridge restaurant offers three-course meal for £28
Everything that is great and British has become highly fashionable.
Thousands of people from all over the world will be flocking to Britain to watch the Olympics in just a few weeks time.
The nation has just celebrated The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Great Taste at the Cadagon has launched a menu celebrating British cuisine.
The eatery in Knightsbridge, which was formerly known as Langtry’s, is offering a set menu offering a single course for £18, two courses for £23 or three courses for £28. All the dishes offer the best of British produce.
I’ve always wanted to try steak tartare but was a little apprehensive about trying a dish involving raw beef.
All my doubts and fears vanished with the first bite.
Delicately flavoured with capers and served with a poached pheasant egg, sauce gribiche and crumbs in wagyu beef dripping, it melted in the mouth and was delicious.
The cured mackerel was also very flavoursome as were the peas, pickled radish, shallot and chilli dressing which came with the dish. Ever the carnivores, my dining partner and I both opted for the rump steak.
We were told it would be served medium rare which luckily was fine for us both but I felt diners should be offered a varied choice.
The menu said it was served with a bone marrow risotto and to my surprise this tricky rice dish was served within a bone on the plate.
I felt the risotto could have had a bit more bite but nevertheless it was very nice as was the New Forest wild garlic leaf and purple carrots which were also served with the meal.
My chocoholic dining partner was drawn to the Tommi’s chocolate and chilli cake which was served with Cornish clotted cream and chocolate soil, which received the full thumbs up.
Meanwhile I was instantly drawn to the “strawberries and cream jubilee” for obvious reasons.
A fantastic combination of meringue, crumble, jelly and ice cream which is fit for The Queen.
British cuisine is back in style and Great Taste at the Cadogan is leading the way.
