This visit was orchestrated by Mr Oran and followed a few Whiskys at Black Rock.
This is my excuse for the blurry pictures that follow.
A Friday night with cocktails and fusion food to share. To me, this sounds like a winner. So let me share with you how it went.
The menu made this easy to do. Variety being the spice of life made it all appealing and foodie words and names throw themselves at me:
- Macaroni cheese croquettes w truffled chive mayonnaise
- Chipotle chicken wings
- Sichuan pepper crispy squid w lemon mayonnaise & rocket
- Steamed Bao sliders – Steamed milky white buns. Choose char-siu pulled pork / tempura sweet potato & pickles / soft shell crab & chilli jam, katsu chicken & kimchi
- Tempura Soft shell crab with pickled Asian salad and sesame mayo
- Rotisserie chicken – Brined with ginger, marinated overnight in yoghurt with Asian spices glazed with Nikka whisky
- 10oz Aged 28 day Rib-eye steak – with triple cooked chips, truffled horseradish & herb chantilly
- Nikka whisky glazed 12hr braised pork ribs – served with romaneski & kimchi
From a purely foodie perspective, Bull in a China Shop will not feature in the Top 100 but is still a destination in its own right. Foodie delights are about the experience and here you are guaranteed to have a good time.
Fusion food is really taking off right now and so it should. We have a wealth of specialist cuisines restaurants and there is a need or magic things up and brings flavours together. This mash up brings new flavours and inventions. Whisky glaze, truffle and chives and ribs with kimchi.
