My experience at Gordon Ramseys

I ate at Ramseys on Royal Hospital Road and experienced some absolutely wonderful dishes and some that were disappointing.

The Good:
The amuse bouche was unique: a small potato "sandwich" -- a cream cheese & chive mixure between two thin slices of potato. I hadn't ever had potato that was crispy, flat and non-oily like that so I asked how it was done. I haven't tried it yet, but they siad the slices are baked at 160 C for 14 minutes between two heavy plates. The absolutley most wonderful dish I have had in a long time was frogs' legs served tempural style, sauced with an artichoke cream. Meltingly delicious.

The Bad:
The most disappointing part of the meal was roast suckling pig. It was greasy and had huge chucks of fat. Also, the fois gras dish wasn't up to standard; it was the most fibrous I've had.
