#Throwback Thursday: Plateau Restaurant

I love eating out and discovering new restaurants, so I want to dedicate a weekly throwback section to the many restaurants I have visited.

Here goes nothing, eeeekkkk…!

Let me take it back to a few months ago when my friends and I took a trip to Plateau, Canary Wharf for a lush meal. Both the food and service were top notch, and to top it off the stylish, futuristic restaurant offered spectacular  views of the surrounding cityscape which made all the more memorable.

We booked our delicious 3 course meal including a glass of sparkling wine via bookatable.co.uk. To start with a went for a tea smoked mackerel, oyster mayonnaise, fennel salad; for the main I had a slow cooked haddock, lemon and thyme gnocchi, wild mushrooms, mushroom purée (I don’t usually do mushroom, but it wasn’t over-powering so I quite enjoyed it); and then for the dessert I went a baked apple and cinnamon ice cream alaska, rum flambe which lit up as it was presented to me. #Lushness

I highly recommend this restaurant for top notch food at affordable prices.

Try Something New…

You know when you pick something up my mistake…but it turns out to be a yummy mistake, well I experienced exactly that on Wednesday. I was in a rush getting my lunch…and all I see is Jerk (which took me to the taste of my favourite Caribbean takeaway shop) so I pick it up and before I realised the full content on the sandwich (sweet and spicy jerk ham, egg and pineapple…it was the egg that I wasn’t too sure about) I had already paid and left the store.  I thought to myself oh well what’s the worse that could happen…?! If anything it fits well within my ‘try something new challenge’. So I opened up the sandwich and discovered something wonderful, the flavours were lush. It was that type of lushness where you can’t stop eating but you don’t want it to finish either. I highly recommend this Jamie Oliver sandwich. #OneLove

Try Something New…

I’m not a massive Oreo fan but somewhat underwhelmed with these Oreo ice-cream sandwiches…hmmm for a start they were too small, two bites and it was gone (I literally went through half the box in one day) and second the taste was just there, nothing special. Even the individual packaging is blah. Oreo ice-cream in a tub is the one not these sandwich things.

Try something new…

I rather like dried fruit but have never thought to try dried banana until now…hmmm now I know why I never wanted to try it, not my thing at all. Ewwww…well at least I know now for sure that it’s not my thing and this is the joy of trying new things, you just never knew what you might like or in this case don’t like for sure.
Get involved…try something new today, what is the worse that can happen?!
