Salacious Tales from Soho
Went out in Soho at the weekend to a gorgeous Tapas place called The Salt Yard on Goodge Street. We were lucky enough to get a table right next to the the pass, and we got a real sense of not only how passionately the food is prepared, but also how quickly. With 5 girls on the table, the kitchen staff may have been a bit taken aback by the raucousness of our chat, with the birthday girl regaling us with tales of Eastern European Spa treatments involving sexy male cleaners doubling up as masseurs, a cellulite treatment (Not that she has any!) involving being blasted by a water cannon, and a Thai treatement involving some very bizarrely worn paper knickers....
Anyway, we ate....
Saffron Arancini with Mussels, Crab, Squid and a Chilli Alioli
Roasted Scallops with Caramelised Cauliflower Puree, Hazlenuts and New Season Garlic
Line Caught Tuna Carpaccio with Baby Broad Beans and Salsa Verde
Courgette Flowers stuffed with Goats Cheese and drizzled with honey
Salad Of Cherry Tomato, New Season Plums, Red Chard and a Lemon and Rosemary Vinaigrette
Manzanilla and Arbequina Olives
Selection of three Manchegos with Quince Membrillo
Chargrilled Country Style Bread with Alioli or Olive Oil
Ca'di Ponti (Catarrato, Sicily 2009) (3 bottles)
The food was absolutely delicious, and so reasonably priced, came in at under £25 per head and that was with coffee and a generous tip.
The evening was finished off with a couple of rounds of late cocktails at one of our favourite haunts, Milk and Honey (By God the staff are so polite there!)
and after a hilarious series of attempts to hail a cab, we were all home drinking CityLifeAcupuncture Destress Tea and asleep by 3...... ish!
Good Times x
