London - Great fish dishes at Geales, Notting Hill

Geales' been around for quite a while, changed hands/chefs thru the years, but always retained its approach: good quality seafood, simple no-fuss cookery. Dinner last night:

- Taramasalata dip with thick wedges of brown bread

- Dressed Cornish crab - this was absolutely ambrosial. I'd not had a dressed crab dish I enjoyed this much since one I had at Bibendum, and that was nearly 2 decades back!

- Grilled entrees of sole and skate: super-fresh, both dishes relied on very fresh, good quality fish, accented merely by melted butter, a squeeze of lemon, some capers here & there. Which goes to show - if you have superior quality produce, you *don't* need complicated sauces to cover them up with.

- Geales Classic PieTanic: a bit on the heavy side here.

- Steamed Green Veg (long beans, broccoli, peas), Minted peas

Enjoyed this meal tremendously, in fact infinitely much more than the fussy Michelin-starred fiasco at Benares the previous evening (, but that's another story.
