Saturday we had a lovely dinner at one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants Heddon Street Kitchen. Already when we were outside we got hit by a nice atmosphere both by the restaurant and the cozy little street it was situated on.
The interior of the place did not disappoint either. Sadly my temporary phone camera is not as good as I wish it to be for taking photos indoors when there is a lack of light, so I borrowed a picture from their website.
The staff was very welcoming and professional. You immediately felt like you were in good hands. We were a group of 12 people and never once did the waiting staff ask us who had ordered what. Everything came to the person that had ordered the dish or drink. And we all got served at the same time so no one had to wait for the others to eat.
The menu had a lot of great stuff and it was very hard to decide what to get! In the end I decided on California maki roll, snow crab, avocado and tobiko for a starter.
Even if everyone else’s food looked really tasty too I didn’t regret my choice one bit. The mains where even harder to choose from, but I ended up with Goosnargh duck, pink peppercorns, watercress purée and fondant potato.
Once again I wondered if I would have any regrets as I saw the other meals being brought in, but the duck didn’t let me down. The meat was so tender and tasty that it was almost scary. After this I was really full and I had to go a round with my tummy to see whether I was able to do dessert with coffee.
My tummy and I agreed that I was able if I didn’t go for any of the heaviest options on the menu. So I tried the Pineapple carpaccio, passion fruit, coconut sorbet. It was heavenly and best of all lighter that the deserts some of the others was struggling with.
If you ever visit London and want to treat yourself this is a good restaurant to visit!
