Welcome to Food and Impressions

I hope you can find some hints and tips that will save you some time, time that I spent doing something I like: searching, reading, crossing, selecting and finally, I hope, one day, trying.

Tate Modern restaurant: English restaurant in London

Tate Modern Restaurant

English, at the Level 7 of the Tate Modern


Tamarind and Thyme, 19 Apr ‘10: Deep-fried Cornish Haddock with Chips, Tartare Sauce and Mushy Peas: the fish came encased in a beer batter crust, was extremely fresh, and came with a giant mound of thick cut chips; Bitter Chocolate Financier, poached Meringue with Milk Chocolate Sauce: this turned out to be one of the nicest desserts we’d had in recent memory. The chocolate sauce was of a thin, soupy consistency and the milk chocolate was scented with jasmine, which made for delightful drinking. This was absolutely gorgeous paired with the dark financier and the shreds of tart/bitter preserved orange peel; while not as exciting as our chocolate dessert, the Bakewell Tart was still excellent. Actually, it was one of the nicest specimens I’d ever had and it was served with a nice dollop of creme fraiche.

London Eater, 19 Mar ‘10: “Starters was Grilled Monte Enebro cheese with honeycomb and rocket: …the grilled goats cheese was a revelation taking on the texture of a rubbery soft cheese when hot. It’s rind was a striking greenish mould, I dare not eat it”, “Organic Rhug Estate pork chop, bean & Iberico ham cassoulet and green sauce: … Oh gosh. It was worth the wait. All my incessant whining was positively silenced with the excellent pork – perfect pan-fried heatiness, with a juicy, soft centre”, “perhaps the major disappointment in that the meal was not exactly cheap. I wasn’t just surprised with the quality of food, I was impressed”, “The view is an added bonus. Food was cooked well, seasoned well, hearty and filling”;
