Taste of London


Christy from The Lazy Foodie kindly invited me as her plus-one to the Taste of London, located in Regent's Park. For more details on the event, do check out her recent blog post here. These are my top picks from the Taste of London:

  • Jose Pizarro's squid ink croquettes (photographed by Christy) the exterior was crunchy with a creamy, flavourful filling! And I'm very much hoping they offer this dish in their stores, but I need more of it in my life ASAP.
  • Pierre Hermes macarons and ice cream was lovely! We sampled them all because we just couldn't decide. My favourites were their salted butter caramel; passion fruit, rhubarb and strawberry, and their meadowsweet and Corsican honey macarons. The pistachio icecream was so creamy and as you can imagine, we hit a major sugar rush thereafter!
  • Les 110 de Taillevent's #TasteTheWorld dish of duck foie gras mi-cuit with beetroot jelly and eel, which was so delicious. It was presented beautifully, we were both in awe. It was so decadent and rich!
  • Jude's Icecream new flavour: black coconut was amazing – creamy and flavourful, with hints of coconut but not too sickly. The perfect ice cream combo.
  • Pirate's Grog invited Christy to sample some of their cocktails, and they kindly let us sample all their rums too. Their 13 Year Aged Rum has won several awards, and is perfect for those who like drinking their spirits straight since it has such a bold flavour. My favourite was their Five Year Aged Honduran Rum which was made the perfect raspberry daiquiri. Christy enjoyed their espresso rumtini, which was on tap, mixed with their Coffee Rum.
