Meh. Just had a rather disappointing chicken gyoza noodle soup from Wasabi. Too much liquid, not enough veg and a huge chunk of raw onion (which was the first thing I put in my mouth, obviously!). Also, there is no polite way to eat noodle soup in an office, although I did try, which resulted in a slightly soupy work space.
A recent lunch at The Ritz with Jacq was much more successful, despite not really knowing which piece of cutlery to use, and getting told off for taking pictures.
I did manage to take a little sneaky one though:
My starter consisted of a scallop (yep, ONE. True it did say “Scallop” as opposed to “Scallops” on the menu … but I thought they were using the same kind of language that’s so popular in fashion circles… referring to “a boot” instead of “boots” and so on…) with a smoked haddock foam (mmm foam(!)…the foam was actually very tasty), pancetta and some kind of long cracker thing. It was TINY, but incredible.
A minuscule portion of squab pigeon followed, and the meal was finished off by a midget cheese board.
But believe it or not, I was so full that I didn’t eat for the rest of the day. You don’t snack after a meal at The Ritz (you probably couldn’t afford to even if you wanted to).
One last sneaky photo… pretty!
Ps. Thanks to Mummyapples… t’was a lovely Christmas present.
Pps. Itsu gyoza soup is much better than Wasabi
