Made in Camden sits inside the Roundhouse Theatre – part of Camden’s cutting edge music and performance scene.
We convened for D’s birthday and our large group of 28 occupied one entire end of the restaurant – and due to our group size, had Set Menu C for £23 each.
Course 1 – Grilled Asparagus. The poached egg was soft in the middle and the butter dressing so delicious, I was one step away from licking it straight off the plate. As it happens, we were only slightly more civilised and used cutlery to scoop up all the dressing!
Course 2 – Girolle mushrooms with port sauce and spatzle. Girolle mushrooms have quite an interesting texture and the combination of the nutty mushrooms and sauce made it seem a little bit like crunchy pasta/ couscous. Regardless, yum yum.
Round 3 – Pan fried sea bass. This was my favourite – smoky, firm sea bass with flat bread and yoghurt to make little fish sandwiches.
I don’t recall this dish and it seems it didn’t make much of an impact as I forgot to take a photo of it!
Final dish – Pork Belly with Butternut squash. The pork belly was every carnivore’s dream – soft, melt in the mouth with a crispy crackling topping. The pureed squash was largely ignored!
Dessert was a choice of Apple & Rhubarb crumble and Chocolate fondant.
Crunchy and crisp on the outside, molten chocolate gooeyness with a raspberry coulis to complement and pistachio bits.
