We were briefly in London, and had the chance to eat at Dinner, Hereford Road, Four Seasons (roast duck) and Goldmine (char siu).
We were regulars at Hereford Road back in 2008 when we lived in London. We loved it, again, this time. Still serving phenomenal British food. Very good ingredients, unfussy cooking. Beautifully rustic and robust British food. Chef Pemberton as involved as ever - checking and finishing pretty much every single dish out of his kitchen. He was there the day we went for lunch, he was there the day after when we went for dinner.
We visited Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. We liked most of our dishes, and were happy to have dined there. Meat fruit was excellent. So was rice and flesh - albeit a tad salty. THe pork chop was good but not memorable. Ditto for the powdered duck.
Lastly, our recollection of the delicious roast duck at Four Seasons and char siu at Goldmine proved accurate. WE loved those two dishes at said restaurants. Simple but delicious hole in the wall places.
