Chocolate Rabbit
Whilst we were at the Canalway Cavalcade in Little Venice Marcus and Olga came over from Mainz for a few days which gave us the excuse to eat out.
Saturday Lunch was taken, along with Juliette, Arnaud and Dumpling at the Union Bar. This is alongside the Paddington Arm at Sheldon Square -a not extensive but frequently changing menu of traditional and spicy dishes all cooked and presented well at reasonable (London) prices.
For Sunday lunch we revisited Masala Zone in Floral Street, Covent Garden. this small chain of Indian restaurants has an unusual menu predominantly thalis. The food and service, as ever, was very good but ethemenu is still overly complicated. It really should not be necessary for staff to explain how a menu works! If you register on their website you will receive some very good discount vouchers for meals at their five locations.
The gastronomic pinnacle of the weekend was, however, achieved on Friday evening when we went up to 108 Essex Road, Islington for the Latin American cuisine at Sabor (Spanish for flavour). We were all enchanted by the d├ęcor and food. Olga who is from Colombia was, understandably on a high. (not induced by Colombia's famous export I hasten to add) . We shared some really appetising starters. For main course I eventually chose rabbit in a spicy chocolate sauce which was truly amazing. The choice was difficult and we naturally tried each others dishes.
Now it' back to the yellow label diet!
