karohemd: Gentoo penguins in Antarctica, by me (Hungry)
Last night and [livejournal.com profile] razornet celebrated their 30th birthdays at the Galleria in Bridge St. (right on the river by Magdalene Bridge). I'd only been once for coffee in the afternoon (nice tarts) but hadn't thought of going there for dinner.

For starter I had the Bresaola (air-dried cured beef) with dressed leaves, caramelised pear and walnuts which had good flavours and textures.
For main I had the roasted monkfish and prawns in a Thai style sauce on rice. The fish was cooked to perfection but the spicy sauce was a bit overpowering so you only got the texture of the fish. When I made sure I ate them separately, it was fine.
There was a little room for dessert but the chocolate box (one of [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke's wet dreams) included caramel and toffee so wasn't for me and the cheesecake would have been too rich so I opted for the ice cream which I doubt was home made but was OK.

However, starter and main were enough to want to come back and a good time was had by all, despite the rather loud birthday party downstairs. The portions are generous and considering the location, the prices are acceptable, too.

Hm, looking at their menu, they have really awful photos, it would look better without them. I wonder if I should offer to do it properly for them and get a free meal out of it? Or even better, to get every dish on the menu, invite as many friends as needed. :o)
