A 10 course ever changing seasonal menu at a Michelin star restaurant known as Restaurant Story , on London Bridge’s Tooley street has to be one of my favourite foodie experiences of all time. Michelin guide describes the cooking as being of a high quality standard and I have to wholeheartedly agree. The story behind the dishes , mouth watering flavours , drinks pairing , service and ambience created a memorable standout experience .
I took a few pictures ( by few I meant 50 pictures) and videos of our evening so scroll down for highlights. Here goes my my post about a 10 course menu at Restaurant Story
10 course menu at Restaurant Story
Langoustine with black Garlic mayonnaise and Spirulina powder was a standout dish. I was too shy to ask for an extra pot of the mayonnaise
Smoked sturgeon custard and platinum caviar. I purred while eating this. It went well with the bottle of Tatomer
What did you eat last night someone asked. I said beef fat. To be more specific , a candle made out of beef fat , gravy and home made sourdough bread was very inventive. It’s apparently based on the chef , Tom sellers memories of his father beef dripping Sunday lunches. When the waiter asked me to try the melted candle I thought he was having a laugh. I finally trusted him and tried some. It was delicious.
Pumpkin agnolotti and lemon was light and very flavourful
Francis Boulard Les Alpes , France
Cod fillet poached in butter with a lemon gel , violet artichokes and a champagne sauce with caviar .
Luxurious black truffles generously shaved on top of our celeriac risotto
Roasted honey glaze Duck breast , leg and beetroot . Did I mention the truffle buttons
Paddington bear inspired marmalade dessert with a glass or 2 of Sauternes 2008.
2018 Renardat – Fache Bugey Cerdon Methode with a tasty rhubarb , rice pudding and custard ice cream
Chocolate and lovage dessert
This current blog post is partly a gift, last year I changed jobs and my old work colleagues presented me with a voucher for one of the restaurants on my bucket list ( thanks Jamie ) . You might want to save your coins though.. The meal and paired drinks costs almost as much as my mortgage , but it was sooo soo worth it.
