Tar & Roses Paella + more

Porthos | Dec 8, 201309:14 PM

Had the paella for 4 (min order) tonight with 3 people at Tar & Roses. Also ordered a couple of dishes with a nod DOM also rans (funghi, pasta, spherical foods).

-Started with roasted english peas. Delicious.

-King trumpet mushrooms with egg. (funghi + spherical food)

-squid ink fettucini with octopus. Very good.

After this came the 3 course inclusive paella dinner:

-blistered gem lettuce salad with bacon, dates, gogonzola.

-seafood paella. Definitely cal influenced. Scallops, tiger prawns, clams, and mussels. There is basil, delicious sweet cherry tomatoes, basil, and pea shoots. Rice also contains some lemon zest, pancetta, and I think some chorizo. Rice was a bit wet and there was no socarrat.

-desserts of hazelnut chocolate bar and strawberry crostata were both excellent. The strawberries were also seasoned with black pepper and thyme which made it extra delicious.
