7. March 2015: Restaurant Wild Honey

| May 9, 2015 | 0 Comments

As an amuse bouche from the kitchen a “seabass ceviche” was served which was tiny but flavourful and the perfect start to get your palate up to the task.


The second amuse bouche – which was served at the same time was “mushroom and jelly” which was even a bit better, respectively more to my personal gusto.


As a starter, I went for the “slow cooked belly of pork, carrots, pear, chorizo” (GBP 14.00) which was aromatic but a bit fatty. The chorizo with its spiciness provided a nice tasty note to the dish and, especially in combination with the sweetness pear, made it absolutely okay.


As a main course I went for the “slow cooked shin of limousin veal, young spinach, fresh ricotta, winter truffle sauce” (GBP 38.00) which was served as you can see below. This was definitely very confusing as there was absolutely no hint of meat on the plate. The meat was then served …


… separately as well as the sauce. The veal was absolutely okay and so was the dish overall but I had really expected more from it. It somehow lacked a bit in flavour. It was good but for a 1-starred Michelin restaurant I was a bit disappointed.


The last course of the evening though, my dessert, a “mango sorbet, spiced pineapple, coconut, coriander” (GBP 9.00) was very interesting due to the spiced up pineapple. Lovely finish of the evening … at least I thought so …


Together with my double espresso, some “chocolate thingy with chrunchy chocolate stuff” was served. It looked limitedly appealing but it had a nice underlying idea. The outside was really hard but the inside was almost raw and liquid – lovely taste!


The service does an okay job – they were sometimes quite unattentive and one had to wait quite a bit. But at least they showed to be flexible when I only called three hours prior to the dinner to extend the table from 2 to 3 people. The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice but a bit too stuck-up for my personal gusto. However, overall I must admit the dishes are good but just that. I was not blown away in any way by the dishes. Good, yes, outstanding, no. Personally, I’m of the opinion you can eat better in London – especially for the price.
