Jamie's Restaurant Tried & Tested - Union Jacks Covent Garden
Today's post is not a recipe but a tried and tested restaurant -Jamie Oliver's Union Jacks in Covent Garden
We shared a few starters of Chicken Livers, Bloody Mary Mussels and Smoked Trout with Baby Yorkies - all delicious. The livers were very tender served on toasted bread, the mussels served in a spicy thai style sauce and the trout with yorkies - inspirational! Main for me was a flatbread pizza the 'Woodman', a crispy base with mixed mushrooms, Westcombe Cheddar, red onions, chervil and tarragon and Marc chose the Empire Chicken -Indian spiced chicken with Bombay potatoes, Carrot salad and coriander yoghurt - both delicious. I abstained from a dessert but had a little taste of Earl Grey Ice Cream and Rhubarb Ice Cream both almost a cross betwwen an ice cream and a sorbet, might have a full portion next time!
Jamie uses local produce as much as possible and has a few English wines on the menu, the Chapel Down Rose was great!
