Delicious Days: Super Hash and Passionfruit Jam


Super Hash, which is all kinds of yummy meats together with poached eggs on top. You can choose as many jams as you want. The star of the show was the passionfruit jam. It was tart, flavorful, and perfect.

Delicious Days: Bruschetta Trio - Crab, Duck, Pate

Chicken Pate with pickled shallot first, which was stunning. A great balance of texture with velvety flavor, and the right tang.
Blue crab with mint. Fresh, delicious, light.
Duck with goat cheese and apricot jam. My goodness. It was just incredible. The perfect balance of flavors. My favorite thing I've eaten in a long time.

Delicious Days: A Beautiful Bakery

The selection at this British bakery always makes me smile. Their Cheese Sticks and Bread Pudding are two of my favorites, but I've never been sad with anything I've eaten. Just lovely.

Delicious Days: Fruit Salad

It doesn't look real, does it? The saddest omelet in the world was accompanied by one of the best side servings of fruit ever. Perfect raspberries, delicious kumquats, sweet blackberries. Delightful.

Delicious Days: Snow Crab and Champagne


Steamed Snow Crab, lemon butter, grilled corn and a bottle of champagne for me and chimay for him. Sometimes staying home with a movie is best.

Delicious Days: Smoked Goada Mac and Cheese


Creamy, delicious, gooey and delightful. Missing some texture. There was an option to add bacon, and boy I wish I'd taken it. Maybe some toasted breadcrumbs on top would have done the trick. 
The burgers here were not a good choice. Skip them.

Delicious Days: High Tea


High Tea of a sandwich selection, the two favorites being Branston Pickle and Green Apple, and then Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese; Scones with jam and whipped cream, which were lovely but I was sad that the cream wasn't clotted; and then some profiteroles and macarons, both of which were way too sweet. I wish they had real petit fours. But it was lovely, and unlimited tea of which I went through two pots of Earl Grey.

Delicious Days: Duck Flatbread and Gnocchi with Fava Bean Puree

Duck Flatbread with Apricot Jam and Kumquats - Definitely a bit on the weird side. The Kumquats were really tart and sweet at the same time, which really overwhelmed the dish. 

Gnocchi with Parmesan, Ricotta and Fava Bean Puree - Light and fluffy tiny tiny gnocchi. Delicious puree, but lacking a touch of salt.
