Oooh, yum!

We've had a lovely weekend with Elder Son and Daughter-in-law. Yesterday lunchtime, as a belated 60th birthday treat for Husband they took us to a Michelin-starred restaurant, The Glasshouse, in Kew. (Not to be confused with the nearby Greenhouse cafe.) I had a ham and potato cake for starters.
Cod and vegetables - the smoothest mash and the teeniest bits of cauli you've ever seen!

And syrup sponge with real custard. (Real as in made with eggs not Bird's) (And with an extra jug of custard for pouring - and, in my case, scraping out the last dregs with a spoon.)

It was all delicious - oh, and so was the bread - and The Glasshouse has probably taken the title of 'our favourite restaurant' away from Jack in the Green in Devon. You know a restaurant's good when you could sit and just eat a plate of mash.
Thank you very much, Elder Son and Daughter-in-law!

Wow! the food looks delicious and it sounds just the sort of place that could end up in my favorite eateries list!

I know that restaurant.
It is indeed glorious food, glorious food.
I put weight on just reading that post.
Glad to see that you had a good time.
Much love.

The others had more 'exciting' things like pheasant and bone marrow, cherrypie, and everyone agreed it was worth its star.

I think it will be just for very special occasions though, lia!
