Lunch @ La Luna Bistro

It's been a while so we're heading back to La Luna for lunch.

For starters:

I have the Confit Duck, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Filo Tart served on endive, roasted red pepper and semi-dried tomato

This is a most impressive dish - the filling was really thick and unctuous and chock full of flavour - the salad providing a pleasant balance.

Paalo had the Lamb Sausages with potato aioli and a parsley and red onion salad

A good chunky grind, moist and still a little pink - they ticked all the right boxes for Paalo, with the jus proving to be utterly irresistible.

Onto mains:

I have the Crackling wrapped roll of Roast Pork, Tuscan style cabbage and Potato Puree

This was a thick slice of roast pork - the crackling cooked to perfection - not too crisp that it shatters, not too soft that its just too chewy.


Paalo has the Rump with mash, roasted swiss brown mushroom and red wine jus - ordered rare, it came out as requested.

For dessert, we decide to have

the Mezze for Two

Mandarin Sorbet, Creme Brulee, Lemon Curd with Strawberries, Brownies, Almond Bread with Saffron Ice-cream and Amaretto Ice-cream and Coffee Pannacotta

It may well be winter, but I just loved the flavour of that mandarin sorbet.
