After a few recommendations from friends, we decided to go for dinner at The Alchemist near Liverpool Street station and it certainly lived up to its great reviews.
After spending 15 minutes deciding on which cocktail to have (the cocktail menu is huge!) we all picked something from the ‘Molecular Madness’ section and what we were served was brilliant. Each cocktail is carefully made using a molecular drinks-making technique so each cocktail is like being served a mini science experiment. As expected we had to have a few each to sample more of the fun on the menu – our favourites were the ‘Lady Marmalade’ which was served over dry ice and the ‘Bubble Bath’ which bubbled up as you sipped.
In addition to the amazing cocktails, we also had some delicious food – the menu offers something for everyone with a real variety to choose from. A snapshot of our dishes we enjoyed below…
Starters – We shared mini Yorkshire puddings with pulled pork as well as duck spring rolls with Hoisin sauce.
Main – I chose steak frites with salt and pepper fries and the girls had satay salmon with an Oriental vegetable salad and a Japenese ramen with beef fillet.
Dessert – The best part of any meal – we shared a peach Melba Mess and a salted caramel cheesecake.
The Alchemist combines lovely food and cocktails with a great atmosphere – I will definitely be returning.
