Before we plunge into a large list of recipes for you to try at home, I'd like to recap with photos of my recent dining experience at Gary Rhodes' 24.
Starter- White asparagus soup, soft poached duck egg, almond crumble and almond puree
Main course - Pan fried sea trout, tempura of scallops, oyster mushrooms, sweet corn puree and tarragon butter sauce
Dessert - Bramley apple mousse, custard and macadamia ice cream
Food: 8/10 (Excellent contemporary British menu. Personally, I would have preferred a smaller starter and bigger main.)
Atmosphere: 8/10 (view overlooking the Gherkin from floor 24 was great)
Service: 8/10 (the table was not ready for the booked time, but the waiters made a fuss over us)
Value for money: 7/10 ( pricey end of dining experience)
Extra points: Complimentary appetizers (beetroot soup with horseradish and walnut oil) and mini desserts trio (lemon cheesecake, blueberry muffins and berry truffles) and French wine on the menu. Yummy!
Verdict: 9/10. A good place to splurge or celebrate a special occasion.
Watch out for a kuih recipe, coming soon!
