The Green Herring

This was my birthday dinner, and I thought it would be nice to go here as they have delicious food and it is usually nice and quiet. This night, however there was a big group celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary, so it took a bit of an effort to get in the door, but they didn’t really disturb us much once we were seated. Luckily the restaurant is separated into a couple of ‘rooms’ so the noise is minimal. We started with the sweet potato and pumpkin soup and the pear and asparagus salad with lime and balsamic dressing. We were both sitting there, trying to decide between these two entrees so we decided to order both and share them. They were delicious! For mains, I ordered the potato bake that came served with salad and steamed green beans and Martin had the grilled eggplant with hokkien noodles. Again, both were amazing! (Of course, my descriptions of the meals are not exactly as they are written on the menu!!) For dessert I was always going to have the profiteroles (I simply can’t go past them), Martin on the other hand couldn’t decide, so opted for the Taste of Herring, which had a sample of all five (yes five!!) desserts on the menu. The food here is amazing (I think I have said this before), but it isn’t cheap – but it is definitely worth it!! Yummo!
