St John Bread & Wine

Our Rating

Had some of my favorite friends visiting from HK (he works in Food & Beverage in HK and she works with travel….perfect combo). We were all excited about St John Bread & Wine. Last time I was there was with Stewart maybe 10 years ago for the bacon breakfast sandwiches.

What we ate:

All shared plates with the “kitchen will send when ready” motto

Artichoke with greens: artichokes lost flavor when overly fried and caramelised

Mussels: good but not excellent. Big and juice but lacking flavor

Pigs cheeks: hiding under lots of potatoes. Again. Skip

Butternut squash, kale and lentils: best dish with good dollop of yoghurt for creaminess

Braised hare: food and beverage friends skipped and wife and I ate. Couple of bites

Chocolate terrine with ice cream: too thick on terrine but very tasty and ice cream was delicious

All in? Skip. Dishes change every day so whatever I could suggest won’t be in the menu if you are there…
