I've had plenty of margarita's in my time and this was extremely crisp and tangy with a good kick to it. The strawberries and cream tasted just like - strawberries and cream.
We started with polenta chips that came in a stack with a creamy dipping sauce. The crisp outside and soft textured inside combined well. They were light and ideal for a pre-dinner nibble with a cocktail.
After our starter drink and nibble we then moved in to a lovely dining are at the back of Wooden Spoon (behind the bar area and kitchen).
Our five course meal started with zucchini flowers with goats cheese and basil, tomato and beans. I love zucchini flowers and I love goats cheese. This combined so well with the soft goats cheese oozing out of the tender flower as you cut in to it. The crisp freshness of the salad combination offset the warm indulgence of the flower.
Presentation was excellent as well with the dish looking as appealing as it tasted.
The pea and lemon crush went so well with the scallops. It looked like avocado - which may have also been a good mix - but it actually tasted better than this.
The bacon brittle added a salty crunch to the treats which only added to the whole effect. This was a nice dish - if you get a chance try it.
As the Princess isn't a big seafood eater I even got to savour four of these amazing scallops instead of two!
Our last two dishes arrived simultaneously for a bit of a meatfest. The mini beef mignon with wild mushroom salad and shiraz emulsion sauce was faultless. The meat was extremely tender and cooked to perfection. The sauce went perfectly with it. The meat was wrapped in what I'm presuming was pancetta (but it meat have been something else) and the whole combination was a taste sensation. Everyone there seemed very impressed with this dish.
Wooden Spoon is a classy place with great atmosphere and decor, an impressive array of very tasty cocktails and other drinks and some amazing food. Service is friendly and efficient making the whole place seem to flow effortlessly. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the experience.
