After a warm and friendly greeting at the door of Magic Mushroom, we were shown to our table. The whole restaurant was alive with conversation and laughter. After perusing the concise menu, I chose the chorizo and baby squid to start which was fresh and perfectly balanced with the spicy guacamole and tangy salsa. Mrs Exquisite decided upon the salt beef with gherkins and horseradish cream. A delicious and classic combination, with a modern twist. To follow, my perfectly cooked fillet steak, with heritage beetroot and truffled dauphinoise was truly outstanding. Mrs Exquisite enjoyed pan-fried salmon, crushed potatoes and samphire. Brought together with an almond and caper beurre noisette, simply divine. To finish, I chose the beautifully presented and inventive ‘tasting of apple’. Comprising apple strudel, mousse, toffee apple sauce and apple sherbet, I loved it. Baileys and Amaretto cheesecake for Mrs Exquisite, a perfect end to a faultless meal.
