I was über excited for Petrus for two good reasons. 1) Kate claims a PR ate there and nearly cried because it was the best thing she had ever eaten. 2) it sounds a bit like my name. The Stofberg's ascended en mass (prepare for a lot of plate posing) and we had a jolly old time.
Pre starter starter- posh dine standard. Basically a yummy fish cake in tartar sauce. (No tears yet)
Rita with her sea bass- looking proud and every so slightly like Harry Potter's mum.
Sam looking smug over his sea scallops. They were a taste sensation.
Paps with Langoustine, Dorset snails?! and crispy chicken wing (apaz it worked, I remain unconvinced)
Me with my pork lion and suckling pig belly (I LOVE MEAT)
Sam's lamb with sweetbreads(not what you think) roasted butternut squash and pine nuts
|Marga and her star anise creme brulee, with liquorish. She found the plate posing hiler!|
All in all it was a delightful, fun dinner, no one cried which was a shame , and although the food was 5 star I wasn't blown away. Maybe it was the hype, maybe it was the name but I just expected a little something more WOW.
