Visited ‘Taste of London’ for the first time this year in Regents Park. What a wonderful event this is, if you are a foodie (such as myself) it comes highly recommended. I was so impressed by the whole set up, that future visits are an absolute must. There were 40 highly ranked restaurants giving you an opportunity to sample their dishes, star chefs, demonstrations and lots of promotion stalls with freebies.
‘Sushisamba’ had a stall there, a restaurant I have always been curious about as I love Sushi and anything Japanese and they mix Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. I had a wasa roll with shrimp tempura, quinoa, coriander, chorizo, spicy mayo and red onion. I really was not that impressed but it was an interesting combination. If they are back again in the future, I may try something else.
The best dish we tried was no doubt at ‘Flesh and Buns’ where we had roasted pork belly, mustard miso and pickled green apple in a steamed bun. It was sooo good!
Also tried the winning dessert of the festival created by ‘Andre Garrett at Cliveden house’, which was the Peanut butter parfait, salted caramel and raspberry. Lovely flavours but quite rich.
Had so many freebies going around that we ended a wonderful sunny evening very full.
