Thursday Night Date

Sorry no pics today, I feel slightly weird taking pictures of my dinner in a crowded restaurant.


Cullens restaurant has been around for years, owned and run by Andrew Cullen and his wife. It has had it's ups and downs as far as food quality and service go over the years but at the moment seems to be on the up. The service was great despite Julia being scared of the waitress with one of the strongest and most unrecognisable accents I've ever heard. The food was good and we got what was described on the menu which seems to be some kind of minor miracle these days. I have to say I'm not a big fan of the trend to serve dishes warm rather than hot these days and my lamb was decidedly cool. In their defense the restaurant was standing room only and it must have been crazy in the kithcen. All in all though it was a great date and we will of course return to Cullens again and again in the future.

Shared Antipasto
Duck confit, sticky spare ribs, sesame & poppy seed crusted squid, roulade of white fish, smoked salmon, proscuitto, olive oil ciabatta.

Julia, Crispy roasted duck, steamed batton vegetables, creamy garlic polenta, dark cherry jus.

Julian, Lamb back strap, stuffed with roasted peppers, roasted garlic & mint, crushed gourmet potatoes, wilted cress & jus

Now, someone should alert Andy and his missus to the publicity they are enjoying at your fine hand. Make a deal with them, you'll write them up to what is a burgeoning audience and they will shout you your next date there. Also, maybe they'll keep the dishes hot for you PS.
