For our second visit to The Press Club we have company in the form of Elle and Al. After perusing the menu with a bottle of Drappier Brut ZD we opt to try the Kerasma B 5 course degustation menu. As Elle is quite partial to champagne, while 3 of us will opt to have wine matches with our meal, we've also ordered the Egly-Ouriet Brut.
Antipasto - Sakanaki Martini, Dolmades, assorted olives, pickled octopus, pickled cabbage, marinated anchovies
Baklava stuffed baby squid with sweet onion stifado sauce - obviously a dish we enjoyed as we were too busy chowing down on it to take a photo.
Deep fried quail on beetroot taziki - incredibly good, the ultimate in spiced fried poultry.
Greek salad - cucumber quarters, tomato, olives and feta
Yoghurt braised neck of lamb, olive oil and pomme puree
Raviolo, seared fish with broad beans and feta
Dessert mezedes -
Chios Mastic Panna Cotta with marinated strawberries,
Watermelon sorbet with feta
Carpaccio of sesame seeds, licorice ice cream and tahini,
Cypriot cinnamon ice cream with sour cherry jam
