Last weekend, I was surprised with an early birthday present, and a lovely one at that! I was treated by my boyfriend to a three course brunch at The Aqua Shard. Located on level 31 of The Shard in London, this contemporary restaurant not only has incredible views of London, but also serves innovative, delicious British cuisine.
A snapshot of our dishes we enjoyed below…
Starters – I opted for Butternut Squash Soup with chestnut cubes and truffle popcorn, served with warm soda bread and Ash went for Eggs Benedict with Colchester Blue lobster which was amazing (food envy!).
Main – I chose Roasted Cornish lamb’s leg served with a yorkshire pudding, honey-glazed carrots, beef dripping roasties, smoked bacon and red wine jus which was possibly the best meal I have ever had. Ash went for a maple smoked salmon omelette with crème fraiche and Oscietra caviar which was also delicious.
Dessert – Pudding is always my favourite course and this didn’t disappoint. I had a lovely lemon meringue tart and also couldn’t help pinching some of Ash’s chocolate pecan tart with butterscotch ice cream.
The Aqua Shard is the perfect venue if you want to celebrate a special occasion and indulge in some really great food. If you’re okay with heights, I would definitely recommend a visit!
