Foodie Friday #12: Kettner's, Soho, London

It was just a usual dull but busy day at work,  I got an email from Scott my boyfriend saying "hey, I got a treat for you tonight!" I scrolled down the email, he had made a booking a Kettner's in Soho! I have heard so much about this famous restaurant, and I have been wanting to try for ages!!

We arrived at 7pm, a little early for our 7.30pm booking, so we went to the bar for a drink first. The bar area had the usual various high & low table, but they have a couple of booths that you can book with friends!

I ordered their cocktail of the month "Green with Envy". Such a pretty green colour in a cute cocktail glass (made Scott jealous that he just ordered a normal beer), The basil leaf floating on top was such a clever idea, you picked up the cocktail, the aroma of basil hit your nose before you took a sip. the most refreshing drink in a hot day after work.

We were then led to our table. We walked through the first section towards the back of the restaurant, it opened up like a conservatory, with windows all around flooding in sunlight!

We ordered. We were so hungry that I completely forgot to take pictures of our starters , and we demolished them in minutes. We had smoked mackerel pate & duck pate with toasts. They were amazingly tasty.

For mains, Scott had the grilled pork chop with wild garlic mash, which was a huge portion.

I chose the pan fried hake with vegetables. I might had it as fish & chips without knowing it, but I could not remember having pan fried hake before. Hake was such a meaty white fish, and it was cooked perfectly!

The portion of green vegetables we ordered as a side, the greens were crunchy & buttery.

Our booking was with Bookatable, the deal was a 3-course meal for £20. So we were "obliged" to have desserts!

Scott chose the chocolate marquise, he thought it would be a chocolate tart but it turned out to be a slice of chocolate mousse/sponge combination. The chocolate was smooth, but as it was completely different o what he had in mind, he thought it was nice but not quite for his taste.

I had the pineapple carpaccio with elderflower sorbet. IT WAS LOVELY!! The pineapple were sliced so thinly & sweetly, the elderflower sorbet was so refreshing & light, the combination was heavenly.

If you come to Kettner's, please visit their loos, they are located upstairs. Not that the loos have anything special about them, but this gives you a change to check out their 1st & 2nd floors. Span across the two floors are individual rooms that you could hire for events. You would be so shock by how spacious the upstairs are, it feels like I am in someone's stately home!

Every Tuesday night they have live jazz music with £6 cocktails.

Apparently, their afternoon teas are amazing too!!!

Tuesday means... Steak night at Wetherspoon!

"Are you serious?" I know what you are thinking. Wetherspoon pubs have revamped their menu and food quality, but the price has stayed low.

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
