Restaurant Sat Bains
Seven course tasting dinner piss-take at Sat Bains Restaurant with rooms. I forgot to snap the scallops and crab before tucking in, but here are a few of the dishes…
Deer tartare with moss and thin slices of mushroom. Too little deer meat here to taste anything – I thought it was a squashed raspberry. The good thing about this dish is that it was paired with a lovely red wine from Washington state.
Roast partridge breast and fried leg served with beetroot.
Bridging course before the desserts – miso fudge and candy floss on a bed of twigs.
An Aero chocolate bar with the outside sliced off, mandarine jelly topped with cardamom infused grains of salt. Paired with a £4.99 supermarket Pinot Grigio.
Jammie dodger with ice cream and tomatoes. Paired with a £1.99 Asti Spumante Rose.
