Sunday Lunch at Kitchen W8 Sunday.
Always wanted to visit a Michelin starred restaurant but think you cant afford it? Think again.
Kitchen W8 has a really exciting menu with the most delicious food. The food all looks beautiful and the portions are a great size. I hate fancy restaurants where you come home and need to make a sandwich because they gave you such measly portions! It’s a great combination of fantastic food, having been awarded a Michelin star and providing a lovely local place that has regular customers.
Sunday lunch will only set you back £29.50 for three courses, which is great value for money and believe me, it’s worth every penny!
To start with we had:
Salad of Autumn Roots with Truffle Cream and Pink Fir Potatoes
Tartare of Fallow Deer with Charred Crapaudine Beetroot (crapaudine?? much more delicious than it sounds!), Walnut Cream and Smoked Oil
Raviolo of Partridge with Melted Onions and Minced Livers – not much of a looker but it packed a big flavour punch
Risotto of Jerusalem Artichokes with Confit Egg Yolk and Truffle Pesto (this was unbelievably delicious – I’m completely obsessed with truffle and this pesto was ridiculously delicious!)
Whole Cornish Plaice with Brown Shrimps, Tenderstem Broccoli and Seaweed Potatoes – this was perfectly cooked and the butter sauce was drool worthy
New Season’s Pheasant Pie with Sweet and Sour Prunes, Bacon Choucroute and Celeriac. I’m definitely going to make this celeriac puree, it was so creamy and tasted of Autumn
Roast Rib of Ayrshire Beef with Yorkshire Pudding – winner of the world’s biggest Yorkshire Pudding competition goes to…
And for pudding:
Warm Muscavado Financier with Discovery Apples, Medjool Dates, Vanilla, Coffee and Walnut
Lightly Smoked Caramel Pear with Hazelnut Sponge, Chocolate Cream and Chardonnay Vinegar Ice Cream
Bitter Chocolate Pudding with Salt Caramel Ice Cream, Praline and Lime – this was definitely the winner!
New Season’s Quince Sorbet – this was interesting. I think it would be more delicious with some cold meats, but good to try Quince in a different way
