Farewell Parsons Green at Claude's Kitchen

It seems only fitting that Mr D and I's final supper in Fulham was at my most visited restaurant in London, our lovely local Claude's Kitchen.

As always Claude's staff greeted us with a warm welcome, fabulous smiles and a wonderful sounding menu


This particular evening was their Tuesday special 'two courses for £16 or three for £20' so, three courses it was.

I started with a delicious and decadent braised octopus, squid ink, tomato, pea shoots and popped spelt. An all round goodie, the octopus was amazingly tender and the sweet tommys were set well against a punch of saltiness from the ink - de-lish!



Mr D, already knowing what he was having for main decided upon the BBQ'd leeks served with goats cheese, coal oil and pumpkin jam. Another impressively looking dish.



Onto our mains...

Mackerel for me came swimming in incredibly vibrant green soup served along side rainbow chard, anchovy, vanilla and pickled root. Such lovely combinations of unusual flavours which made for a refreshing, zingy and light main course. As we're now slowly getting into Spring this was a fantastic dish to have had on such a nice sunny evening.


Mr D had pork chop which I was ever so slightly envious of (not that mine wasn't delish his was pretty much a protein perfect plate). Served with beetroot, kale, rhubarb and romesco. It was lightly infused with aniseed which wasn't hugely apparent but beings as I'm not a huge aniseed fan this was no bother to me!  



Puds:

The now infamous cloud which I won't bore you about as I've gushed about this dish over and over... It's simply heaven!



Plums for the boy (no pun intended!)... Sadly I didn't try due to my inexplicable hatred for cooked fruit, but it did look rather gorgeous served with almalfi burnt cream and honeycomb.



As always Claude's is a pleasure to visit and even more of a treat to taste. We will miss being your neighbour but please reserve us a spot as regularly as possible!!

Sorry for the grainy photos I'm not one to go flashing in a restaurant to get good shots!!
