Good Dinner Out

Last night Varen & I tried a new restaurant (after I showed off all my new clothes to him, of course!). We went to The Bell Pepper in Kensington. I've been keen to try it for a while, but he was always a little skeptical because it looks a little dodgy. Even the decor inside, to be honest, is nothing spectacular.

Turned out to be fabulous :) We shared a bottle of Chilean wine which was far better than we were expecting and then came the most divine starters. Varen had Camembert cheese wrapped in phyllo pastry which was truly decadent and I had their Roast Vegetable & Haloumi Salad, which isn't a conventional salad, since there is no lettuce, but rather it's a stack of veggies (courgette, aubergine and peppers) with haloumi on top. Divine, both of them.

For mains Varen had the duck, which he said was the best duck he'd had ... since he doesn't like duck usually as it comes with orange sauce. I had the chicken breast (stuffed with feta & spinach and wrapped in parma ham) which was really good.

So, all in all a really good evening :) I'm sure there was something else I was going to mention ... but I can't for the life of me think what?
