Maze

For my birthday yesterday my husband took me to Gordon Ramsay’s Maze. We had a four course menu (if you have a la carte they recommend you order 2 or 3 dishes each) – which was 3 savoury and 1 sweet dishes.

The food is an interesting mix of British with asian flavours.

My first was salmon:

The salmon – which I think was described as jasmine scented – was cut quite thick so felt quite meaty and the horseradish with the, albeit tiny, bits of beetroot, crunchy apple and radish really complemented the sweet salmon.

Next I had chicken:

This was chicken and foie gras served with chutney and caramel.

Then, I think my favourite dish, pollock with clams, sprouting broccoli and a lemongrass sauce:

By now we were getting full, but there’s always space for desert – course number 4 was a pineapple tarte tatin with the most amazing coconut and cardamom ice cream which took me back to India with the first mouthful.

The waiting staff asked if we were there for any special occasion, and a little after I told them it was my birthday they came to the table with this:

A really nice touch to a lovely evening.
