This is a late Valentines day post, Spurs are partly to blame for scheduling a match on the day and stealing Joe. Anyway, the delay was made up for with the cutest dinner ever on Saturday night. We went to a restaurant in Kensington, Maggie Jones. I read mixed reviews on the place which included, "It was like my nan's kitchen", so I wasn't too sure what to expect.
Nan's kitchen was not far off. Pots, pans, shelves that held bits and bobs covered the walls. We were taken downstairs, which was a small intimate room and seated in a rustic candlelit booth. The friendliest waiters greeted us with fresh bread and nibbles. I haven't included photos of the restaurant just because I'm hoping you'll go and I don't want to ruin it for you!
We share most of our meals, when we don't I always think his is yummier than mine. So, for mains we went for the Chicken and Artichoke Pie. Creamy chicken with shredded artichoke mopped up with the pastry was absolutely sensational.
As well as a rump steak, both recommendations from the waiter. I'm often reluctant to get steak when I'm not in steakhouse and this completely proved me wrong. Succulent, flavoursome and I had the whole, 'I hope this never ends'.
The dessert was a tough decision, apple crumble and bread and butter pudding were the chosen ones. With burnt cream and chocolate pot being the runners up. Definitely the best traditional British food I've had in London.
Overall, a romantic and delicious dinner with my perfect valentine. Very loved up and full up.
