Nice night out last night, Grandpa babysit so we booked the pop up
meal by Dr Legumes
at Orchard Lane
. Stopped for a couple of drinks on the way at The Inn Doors
too, good as I missed my regular Friday session this week and last.
It was all "small plates", sort of tapas
☠ olives and focaccia
☠ sprouted hummus and focaccia
☠ Malay curried mince vetkoek sliders
☠ polenta and rosemary fries with fennel and chili
☠ watermelon, black olive, tofu cheas, cumin and mint
☠ sweet soy cauliflower with fennel, chili mayo
☠ jackfruit mole tostada, guacamole and tomato salsa
☠ raw slaw
There were five of us so we just ordered two of everything and that worked out about right. The vetkoek sliders
were like a loose "meat" sandwich (though everything was vegan
of course) and very good, everything was tasty. My favourite was the sweet soy cauliflower
, it's a lot like the bang bang cauliflower
they do at Wagamama
There were some great puddings too, I had a tea doughnut, really good, and so was Clare's compote thing.
Good to hear that Dr Legumes
will have a permanent restaurant soon, though they can't announce where yet. It's going to be in the harbour area but not on the Harbour Arm
. I wonder if they'll be one of the first businesses in the new development? That would explain why they can't announce it yet. Or probably more likely along Tontine Street
seems a really nice cafe too, this is the one we tried to go in a few weeks back but they were closed. Will go in again, seems to be owned by someone who I used to work with at Holiday Extras
Went back in The Inn Doors
for another drink on the way home. With this walking and mowing the lawn
, and our earlier trip to the park in Hythe
, and then my walk home (after a hair cut
) I definitely got my step count
in for the day. No idea actually how many as I have no device for counting still but I definitely smashed it.Out with Dom and Jen and Dean tonight. I was sure Jen was going to pull out at the last minute but she was on great form.
Dom however was in a mood for some reason. He put being subdued down to him not drinking that evening, but it seemed more like he wasn't drinking because he was unhappy about something.
