After a long day at the office, the OH & I needed a quick & tasty place for dinner near St Pauls.
It was a toss-up between Brasserie Blanc & Bread St Kitchen – and Raymond won.
At first, I thought we stumbled into a rehearsal of ‘ello ‘ello, with the accent of the waiting staff sounding unusual.
We shared Maman Blanc’s salad starter. It came with beetroot! Eeuuwww!
But….it was truly delicious with little pockets of carrot remoulade & celery in some sort of dressing. It converted both me and the OH to this maligned vegetable.
The stuffed chicken leg was ok – I would have preferred the skin crispy.
The OH demolished his lamb kidneys & mash and pronounced them delectable.
Finally the dessert was a pistachio soufflé. I thought it a tad underdone, but the OH assured me all soufflés should be like this. I’m still not convinced. The choc ice cream was lovely.
All in all, good food at fairly reasonable prices (for London).
I want to try another branch now.
