Today’s lunch as sponsored by my bank account was from a little (major overstatement as it’s more tiny) place I discovered during my first week at my new job. I walked into Rosalind’s Kitchen and was instantly greeted by a mishmash of brightly coloured food. As I’ve said time and time again, the best way to discover new places in London is by walking around.
Unfortunately it took me until last Thursday to realise that they have a selection of food out every day for people to taste. However again unfortunate, my choice of potato and chorizo tortilla was sold out – it just wasn’t meant to be. The helpful gentleman gave me a card and informed me that if I was planning to take a late lunch, I was more than welcome to call up and have a piece reserved for me. (1, 2, 3 – awwww!)
So today as I wondered up Great Portland Street, I happened to turn down Little Portland Street and found myself heading towards Rosalinds Kitchen once again. Ah hah, I thought, it’s a sign!
So I ventured in and picked I up a salad which cost £4 and consisted of a choice (picked by me) of five out of the nine salads on offer.
I picked the following:
– Winter Tabbouleh
Not bad, but wasn’t particularly loving it, I do love the creativity though.
– Mixed Rice Salad with Herbs
Good flavour, well seasoned, really yummy!
– Roasted Broccoli Salad with Chilli
Very simplistic, but actually works really well together, I had to season a little, but not complaining!
– Mushroom Salad
More mushrooms in a bit of a seasoned oil. Not bad
– Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
Nice, although again I think would need a little seasoning, only because the sweet potato is very sweet! But with sweet potato you win some, you lose some!
As I said, every day Rosalind’s kitchen has on offer some items to taste.So far I have tasted the following:
Potato and Chorizo Tortilla
Although I’ve only tasted the smallest amount, it is comfort food at its best. The fact that its pure carbs is the only thing stopping me from purchasing a portion for my lunch!
I quite liked the flavour and texture of these and the fact that they’re made of beans makes them both filling and healthy!
I’m pretty sure that Rosalind’s Kitchen will become a firm favourite of mine & I will definitely be making it a regular lunch stop! Watch this space!!
