After some Korean, we headed back to food coma and relax from the hot weather in the apt. We watched some teevee, I changed into my sparky shorts and then we decided to head over to Brixton for Nikos’ birthday party.
It took awhile for me, but I finally settled on a Riot Sling
Gordon’s London Dry Gin, Lemon, Honey, Black Tea, Ginger Beer
Delicious. I’m hooked. I got two.
curried cauliflower, potatoes and tamarind gastrique
These were pretty good, but the flakey skin fell apart too easily, I like mine crisp and firmer. Light curry taste and the taramind and frisee was a nice touch.
So not a real charcuterie board, just pate and fish. WTF?!.. we didn’t finish this and they ended up giving the table two fo these and none of us touched it. haha. OOPS.
After this and ordering another drink everyone was here and we sat down at the bday table.
Red Vino & White Vino for the table…
The Birthday Boy!!!
Heirloom Tomato Cucumber Salad
with mint-yogurt dressing
This was delicious and refreshing.. amazingly beautiful sweet heirloom tomatoes… with crisp crunchity cucumbers… MMMM… the dressing was light and accented the fresh veggies… MMMM
Cheddar Ale Soup
with crispy bacon and crusty breadMost of the table got this soup or the salad..MMMM so good.
And then a lot of the table also got the Fish & Chips
beer-battered haddock with mushy peas, thick cut fries and malt vinegar remoulade
B with his Fish & Chips with mashed peas.. I may have stole some ;D
And the rest of the table, along with me, got the
Roasted Half Chicken
with roasted vegetables, and brown gravy
It was just as J described.. melted off the bone with a crispy skin. It was a bit on the salty side but it was good.. and the roasted veggies were also delicious. YUM.
Spike and his girl got here late and ended up ordering everything else the rest of us didn’t. HAHA. When S’s lamb shank came me and J tried to get him to eat it from the bone, hands only, BOO, he ate it with knife and fork tho. LAME.
Shot shot shot shots…..
And sometime inbetween I made friends with one of the waiters and me and B and him got in a deep convo about Pot & Shrooms.. apparently if I ever do shrooms I have to do it with him hahaha…
and then it was back home early to finish packing and help W with his clothing donations.
:] Good times. Good people. YAY.
