St. Pancras and Kings Cross

Posted on 2014/11/02 20:10:20 (November 2014).

[Thursday 30th October 2014]
Headed home after work to get up to date with some laundry and other admin chores, but headed out again later on in the evening to meet up with my old boss for a drink and dinner in King's Cross / St. Pancras. Dinner was at a fairly new (as far as I could tell) swanky restaurant called Plum and Spilt Milk, which apparently had a sort of golden era of railways inspired theme, but it wasn't so obvious to me. Having already had some ribollita earlier in the evening I wasn't hugely hungry, but then I remembered vegetarian options in these kinds of upmarket restaurants were usually pretty insubstantial, so that worked out fine. The mushroom vol au vent was decent enough I suppose - with the caveat that I was happy I'd already had a hearty bowl of soup first. The dessert was a surprise hit - the eponymous signature dish - which involved stewed plums and brioche, normally both things I'd avoid in the dessert menu, but this worked really well.
