I hope you are all well! It's been quite a while... I'm so sorry for the complete absence! I've just been settling into a new job but fingers crossed I'll be back on the blogging scene! Massive belated Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!
As I'm slowly easing back into blogging I thought I would share my all time favourite restaurant, Texture, and just in time for Valentine's Day!
If you have read any of my earlier posts you may actually recognise this restaurant, as I did blog about it quite a few years back. As I enjoy going to this restaurant so much the first time, going back the second time really was scary. Scary in the sense that it wouldn't meet the high expectations it had created the first time I went. My goodness though, how my expectations were completely met and in many ways exceeded!
Little extras were still thrown in, in addition to what you ordered from the menu. The flavours were just on point and an explosion of new taste sensations! But on top of that, the staff were so attentive and knowledgeable. I've been lucky enough to try a few Michillin star restaurants (all thanks to deals that these restaurants do) but this really is the one where I feel they deserve more stars!
Although this place would be incredible to take someone to on Valentine's Day, I actually think it would be better for another time, especially at lunch. I know I've only experienced their lunch menu/ambience but I really can't think of anything more perfect and enjoyable. For both times I went around 12-12.30 when it wasn't actually that busy, and it was really lovely because you did get fantastic service and felt as though you were in your own little bubble. It normally does get busier later on into the afternoon, and (whenever I pass it) it is really busy in the evening.
I just can't give enough praise to this restaurant and would highly recommend it. We usually go for their set menu as it is such good value for money. I mean £27.90/£32.90 (this has slightly increased since the time I posted the pictures below) is a lot of money, but the experience you get, added extras and delicious food makes it just so special. If you are thinking of a special place to take someone and want to taste flavours would never expect, I would definitely put this on your list.
Below are just some photos from our meal:
I hope you enjoyed this review and if you do try it, you have as enjoyable an experience as I did! I can't wait for another special occasion to go back!
Take care and speak soon!
