Last weekend me and Rob took off to London to spend the night away at the The Hyatt Regency Churchill hotel in central London, I wrote a post on our stay here. During our stay we had an incredible meal at the hotel restaurant which was called The Montagu.. I thought the meal deserved a separate post as the food was so god damn yummy!
For starters I had smoked salmon, crab meat & cream cheese which was amazing. I have to admit I’m not a huge lover of sea food, as silly as it sounds I don’t like fish that tastes too fishy (I’ve met others like it, it’s not just me!) but this started was lovely and wasn’t too overpowering, the cream cheese complimented the salmon and crab perfectly.
Main course was slow roasted pork belly for both me and Rob, we were going to get two separate mains and share but this dish just sounded so good we both ended up going for it.. and boy we weren’t disappointed! The pork had a sticky crackling on top which was too die for, the mash potato was also really good as it was quite light and not too filling.
For dessert I had good old fashioned apple crumble with ice cream and Rob had some sort of chocolate concoction. My dessert was my least favourite, not because it wasn’t amazing, because it was. It’s just that the others felt more adventurous and I tried the salmon which I wouldn’t normally go for, you kind of know the deal when you order apple crumble so you can’t end up being too surprised. However, my dessert was still as ridiculously as yummy as the rest of the meal!
I also threw in a little snap of Rob looking all pretty at the end for you all! 🙂 – I would seriously recommend this restaurant (and hotel) if you are ever in the area and looking for somewhere nice to eat or a special occasion. The restaurant was also reasonably priced I felt, especially for London. The main courses averaged around £16 which I thought was great value for a luxury 5 star hotel!
