Review: Neo Bistro

2018 and I’m back with a bang!

2018 is the year of food and boy am I excited to go to loads of restaurants this year and eats tons of good food. Add A Little: the rebirth here I coooome!

Obviously I can’t help but start 2018 in any other way than a review of a delicious restaurant situated in Bond Street called Neo Bistro. I hadn’t previously heard of this place but was recommended by my friend. The restaurant describes themselves as modern British and rightly so, the food is delicate and full of flavour. No heavy steak and ale pies coming your way, but rather, sea bream ceviche or home cured charcuterie. You can see a European influence amongst the dishes and every one was 10/10.

I went for the tasting menu and every dish was new and innovative.

The first course upon arriving was homemade sourdough, house churned salted butter, fennel cured charcuterie, chorizo and truffle mousse with hazelnuts. Honestly nearly cried because it was so delicious and it always surprises me how a restaurant can make something so simple so incredible.

Next up was sea bream ceviche with creme fraiche, pine nuts, fennel and grapefruit slaw and lovage oil. A beautiful palate cleanser.

The Parmesan gnocchi’s were clouds of cheesiness and the raw oyster mushroom and pickled walnuts added a lovely contrasting texture whilst the pumpkin purée provided a lovely sweetness.

On the menu, I didn’t know what to expect from quail kebab but this was probably my favourite course. Confit leg of quail and grilled breast were cooked to perfection, accompanied by the fresh, lightly dressed leaves and the creamy, decadent chestnut purée.

This dish focused on duck with a few accompaniments. There was a homemade cranberry jam, roasted onion and a bacon wrapped date that was roasted until gooey and sweet.

A palate cleanser of whipped goats yoghurt with orange blossom honey and candied linseeds came next. A lovely light dish.

The dessert was a rich chocolate mousse with malt ice cream. The chocolate was dark and slightly bitter, a perfect way to end the meal.

But of course, they manage to bring out one last dish of a freshly baked pistachio financier. Couldn’t have ended the meal any other way!

I would highly recommend Neo Bistro to anyone. £50 for an incredible tasting menu is a great offer and they cater to allergies and have a vegetarian tasting menu if needed too.

An Update on Blogging…

Don’t worry – I’m still here!

I know my blogging schedule has not been the best recently – it’s always the last minute stress of exams that seem to crawl over me and suddenly bam, haven’t blogged for what feels like a year!

But it’s not that I don’t want to blog, I really, really do! I’ve also been working a lot on my Youtube channel recently, doing little vlogs and other videos.

But now, I’m planning on doing something very exciting and also kind of scary, but a good kind of scary.  I’m going to expand my blog to also doing lifestyle posts.

Now don’t you worry, I’m not going to sit here babbling on about my new favourite lash extending super serum mascara, but just maybe once or twice a week I’ll also put up a post on an interesting exhibition or event I’ve been to.

I mean, this is all new to me so I’m absolutely no expert but I enjoy reading lifestyle blogs and for any of you that travel to London, maybe this will give you a nice idea of something to do, like maybe a gallery to visit?

And I will still be doing a recipe once a week and most of the time, a video to go along with that too but in addition to that I’ll also be blogging about something else too (and of course you have no obligation to read it, but it will be fun – join the parday!)

PLUS, I’ve got a super exciting holiday coming up and it will be so much fun to bring you guys with me and give you an insight!

Ok, so that’s pretty much it, let me know what you think!

Have a great day and I’ll see you soon!
