To continue my birthday celebration, Ken booked a table at Tredwell's for dinner. Coinciding with London Restaurant Week, there was an offer on - £28 for 3 courses, a glass of fizz and chocolates to take home. 

After looking at the set menu, there wasn't much I was able to eat as it mostly contained dairy and egg. I liked how each dish had a key of the allergens it contained making it very easy to identify what was suitable. The manager Nicole was super helpful and was able to make alterations to certain dishes as well as swap them out for something on the a la carte menu! 

We started our meal with a glass of Grey Goose Mint & Chamomile Fizz. The non-alcoholic alternative tasted very much like celery and even came with a celery stick inside the glass.

For starters, I went for the Harissa glazed aubergine, peanuts, coriander and chilli which was cooked perfectly. The soft and mildly spiced aubergine went so well with the contrasting crunchy pieces of peanuts. It was a good size for a starter. 

Ken opted for the Cod cheeks with kimchee and buttermilk. It had a light crispy exterior with a meaty interior. 

For our main course, I chose the Barbary duck breast duck leg, coco beans and swapped the butternut squash for sweet potato. I was recommended to have it with shallot sauce to accompany the other ingredients. 
The entire plate was delicious. Tender, tasty and thick, the duck breast was cooked beautifully. I would definitely recommend this main - even with the alterations!
Ken chose the Lake District hanger steak, braised shallot, peppercorn sauce with a side of triple cooked chips. The steak was smoky and was well cooked. The triple cooked chips, I felt were heavily over salted but had a golden, crunchy exterior.

Last course was desserts and I was looking forward to this as I couldn't wait to try their Vegan meringue! Served with marinated pineapple, passion fruit and coconut cream, the vegan meringue is made from whisked chickpea water. Long gone are those fruit salad alternatives, Tredwell's have certainly set the bar for vegan desserts!

Ken opted for the Valrhona chocolate with basil and lime. This dark, rich chocolate dessert was decadent and had the texture of mousse. The basil, which he found an odd pairing surprisingly worked well as it took of the bitterness from high percentage of cocoa.

Inclusive to the deal, we were given chocolate truffles to take home but knowing that I wouldn't be able to eat them, I was given a few vegan meringues instead!

Overall, we had a lovely evening filled with tasty food and impeccable service, especially from Nicole. I would definitely recommend this Bookatable's Star Deal!
