Heddon Street Kitchen.


Last weekend was my birthday, so two of my fave blogger girlies and I got together the day after to have a relaxing lunch and glass of bubbly to catch up and celebrate. Angie, Suze, and I had put our lunch in the diary months ago, and were so excited to finally check out Gordon Ramsey's informal Heddon Street Kitchen! We tweeted excitedly, and the staff very kindly brought us some birthday bubbles on arrival.

We spent ages perusing the menu as we kept talking rather than concentrating on the task at hand - choosing our dishes! We hadn't seen each other for months, so we had a lot to catch up on, namely my recent trips to Slovakia and Australia, Angie's trip to South Africa, and Suze's exciting new partnership. We finally chose our meals and then got straight back into talking all things luxury blogging and discussing the gorgeous interior of the restaurant and what it used to be.



Our starters arrived, and instantly impressed us! My scallops were perfectly cooked and tasted really fresh (although not quite as fresh as my scallops from the Isles of Scilly last year), and Suze and Angie's tuna tartare also look delicious.

I have to say the service was excellent, and not only did they get the timing between each course perfect, but they also let us stay and chat for hours after we'd finished! Granted it was a Sunday afternoon though and therefore rather quiet. Anyway, back to the food! I decided as it was my birthday I could be unhealthy and have what I felt like instead of what I 'should' have - I opted for Pork Belly with apple sauce and Thick Cut Chips. YUM. The meat was just perfect, nice big chunks of meat and little fat, and the crackling - oh my. So crunchy and flavoursome.

Suze had the Cod, which looked really lovely, and Angie had the oh so pretty Sea Bream!

We were pretty full (I couldn't even finish my chips) so missed out on dessert, but I'd love to go back again and test some of them out, after all, you all know how much I love my desserts, and we saw some delicious looking ones heading to nearby tables!



The restaurant itself is 'warehouse' style, all distressed woods, metals, and edgy lighting. It works though, and feels very informal but with a touch of class - definitely the type of place you come with the girls or on a date. The menu is mid-priced, two courses with sides and drinks cost about £35-£40, and the food was delicious so well worth the price. The location is also really handy as it's just off Regent Street, and there's a cute little outside area with tables and blankets which would be absolutely gorgeous in sunnier weather!

  7. Looks delicious! Pork is one of my favourite mains! It seems we share a love of puddings, although I don't think I could miss out on pud on my birthday (/ever) ;) Andrea xxx
