I ordered a couple more dishes, the Patatas Bravas without the aioli, and this really interesting aubergine dish.
Some of the potatoes were soft, while others harder and crunchy – variety is nice, but here there were just a bit too many extremes of texture to make it enjoyable, and to be honest, I would have liked the bravas sauce to be a bit spicier.
I thoroughly enjoyed this dish – 4 baby aubergines, stuffed with a mixture of tomato, onion, coriander and mint, dressed with a ‘mojo verde’, a garlicy, cuminy coriander sauce. Soft, flavourful and fresh. I’d eat it again. Next lunch time meal – Nando’s! I had a veggie wrap (hold the yoghurt) and decided to go for the macho peas.
Always ordering off menu and more, you can see from my sticker what I ended up with – hot, veggie, extra avocado, extra mushroom and there was even a special label. Why thank you 🙂 Always delicious, dipped in the medium sauce and the wild herb sauce.
I ended the week with dinner at Rocket. Now here was one place where I was really limited in terms of options. So when in doubt, I go for the dependable menu item – Pizza! Thankfully the server was so accommodating and said she’ll put an order through for any pizza toppings I want – yay! This base was similar to Franco Manca – chewy and totally moreish.
I went for mushrooms, peppers spinach and basil. It was tasty but it was ginormous, and I couldn’t finish the whole thing. Obviously, because I wanted some sorbet 🙂 There were three options – mango, blackcurrant and lemon. I chose mango (I will always choose mango 🙂 and blackcurrant.
The mango sorbet was creamy and not too sweet. The blackcurrant sorbet was horrible. Sickly sweet, icy, crystallised. Eugh. I left it all. I also didn’t get why they sprinkled copious amounts of icing sugar all over! Noooo!!
