Not surprisingly you get mainly Tamil food in Chennai which is mainly vegetarian, what did you have?



t lad had masala dosa
i had some chana masala thing

plus we had this really yum starter - it was samosas but broken open and then smothered in a split pea curry type thing

with pooris

nothing is exactly as it seems, nor is it otherwise

Our local indian Thumbs up the Kerala Paratha bread is lush, almost as buttery as a croissant.

I got a TimeOut offer for One Blenheim Terrace... 8 course tasting menu for two for £45.

This is what TimeOut had to say about the place:

This may be the last restaurant in London where you can order Scotch egg, liver and onions, ratatouille and trifle from the same menu. But if you're expecting 'Abigail's Party', you're in for a shock, as the execution is cutting-edge modern.

Duck à l'orange was fashionable in the 1960s, an Anglicised version of a French dish where duck is served with a sharp orange sauce to counter the fattiness of the meat. This modernised version had the duck fat already rendered away, but more strikingly, the dish has been Hestoned.

What looked like tiny egg yolks scattered on the plate were liquid-filled beads of orange that have undergone spherification - one of the techniques of molecular gastronomy unknown four decades ago, but now you can buy DIY kits online or from the pages of Delicious. On a bed of spelt with braised endive and blood orange sauce, it was an excellent, mischievious main course.

'Lobster thermidor' was another 1960s classic, in this case deconstructed into a large raviolo, topped with a bisque-flavoured foam and microgreens: lovely.




this place was AMAZEBALLS

the 8 course tasting menu is 45 quid a head full price, but they do 6 courses for 25 quid on tuesdays if you fancy checking it out

really, seriously good food.

-10 points for 'mischievous main course' even if it does sound quite delishus.

we had...

amuse bouche: really clever little edible vegetable garden - egg base covered in roasted ground hazelnut and olive 'soil' with baby vegetables 'growing' in it

2: wild mushroom consome with gold leaf (!)

3: marmite croutons and cheese with baby vegetables

4: beetroot-cured salmon with cucmber and vodka ice

5: duck with sour cherry - a fat slice of breast and a big cannelloni stuffed with the shredded leg meat

6: pre pudding - hot liquified popcorn (so yum)

7: prune crumble with earl grey ice cream

8: coffee and petit fours

nothing is exactly as it seems, nor is it otherwise
