I went to Grub for the second time last night and once again, I was very pleased with everything about this place!
We were seated promptly and our server bought us water and offered a drink. As the rest of our party hadn't yet arrived, we declined the drink and perused the fresh sheet and menu. Pretty much everything on the menu sounded wonderful but luckily we were able to narrow it down to two things as I have a gluten intolerance and couldn't have two of the other options we were thinking about.
Once my friends arrived, the server was back to offer us a drink, we ordered a bottle of the St Hallet Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. It was lovely and crisp and cold - perfect for a warm night.
We started by sharing the Pescitarian share plate and the Seafood salad. These servings were both very generously sized. The seafood was fresh and tasty and I loved the mix of the seafood with spinach and strawberries in the salad.
Next up, my partner and I shared the chicken breast stuffed with sundried tomatoes, served over mushroom risotto with rocket and asparagus. The chicken was perfectly cooked, the outside skin crispy and delicious and the inside tender and flavourful. The risotto was perfectly cooked and included some nice big chunks of mushroom. The rocket added the perfect peppery flavour to the dish. The asparagus was grilled to perfection and complimented the entire dish wonderfully.
We also shared the Tuna, which was coated in a green curry sauce and served with shrimp cakes, butternut squash and asparagus. The curry sauce was a little strong and spicy but partnered with some of the squash, proved a wonderful combination of tastes and textures. My favourite part of this dish was the shrimp cakes. They were wonderfully textured and tasted very much like Thai fish cakes. The squash was served with some sort of reduction, I think it might have been coconut milk based, and they paired very well together too.
Stilton Creme for dessert once again. This time it was also served with poached sour cherries. And once again, I was not disappointed. The creaminess of the stilton creme, with the cherries, figs and pears is just the most wonderful combination.
I found the service to be very good, casual but not pretentious which fit in very well with the entire ambience of the restaurant.
We will definitely be back again and again and again......
