whipped cod roe
No stranger to the elevated pub food at Builders Arms Hotel, the whipped cod is one of my favourites. It’s the hot toasted focaccia soldiers that really seduces you to go in for one more bite, as well as those bright bursts of cod roe.
prawn omelette, aioli & smoked paprika // fish pie, smoked trout, prawns, rockling & sorrel // marinated tuna, celery, fennel & white anchovy
The prawn omelette was light and fluffy with fresh prawn hidden within. The tuna fresh & the puff pastry on that fish pie was to die for. The side of green peppers was amazing and brought me back to the padron peppers in Barcelona.
chocolate terrine & brandied cherries
And the chocolate terrine was spectacular, thick & intense yet light enough to have you going back for more. With vanilla bean ice cream.
Tomorrow, our prix fixe encounter at Moon Under Water, followed by Cumulus Up.
