It’s been a little while since I’ve been into London to eat some yummy foods and drink some amazing cocktails.
It was mine and Joe’s ten year anniversary at the end of September, so we decided to treat ourselves to a meal at SUSHISAMBA and for some cocktails at Purl.
SUSHISAMBA is located near to Liverpool Street Station in the Heron tower, where Duck and Waffle is also located. You go up in the lift to the top floor and once you walk out, is a beautiful decorated room with an orange tree with a monkey swinging outside the window, overlooking London, I mean, what a view!
We had green bean tempura with alioli to start, as well as maki. Joe had a veggie maki, I had salmon. Then for mains I had the lamb and Joe had a vegetarian mushroom dish. We had room for pudding so, I went for the chocolate banana pudding and Joe had the ‘welcome to the rainforest’.
Kindly at the end they brought out an extra dish with ice-creams and biscuits with ‘happy anniversary’ on. Very sweet.
All courses were incredible, it was a toss up between the maki and chocolate banana pudding as my favourite dishes.
For cocktails we went to Purl, which is located in between Bond Street station and Marylebone station.
A really funky bar with some amazing cocktails. I had ‘the Joker’ which was a vodka infused drink with a balloon attached – which they use a lighter to burst it. Joe had a whiskey based cocktail with an edible cigar on top.
For our second round, I had a salty bellini and Joe had a rum based cocktail which came in this mini cauldron with smoke coming out of it.
These are both some of my favourite restaurants and cocktail bars in London. Let me know if you end up visiting them in the comments below.
