Man, I love good food (in case it wasn’t obvious) so any opportunity where I can indulge in a meal that has been painstakingly prepared for me, deserves the donning on the fancy fat pants. Fancy fat pants, for those of you who are not familiar, are pants that are nice enough in appearance to wear to a 5 star hotel, but made from stretchy fabric, so they have a bit of give during a night of ultimate indulgence.
My visit to Level 4 at 54 on Bath was the perfect time to put on my FFP, because a 3 course meal awaited. I knew I was in for a treat that would end with me thinking, just one more bite <<<<stretch>>>>>.
The winter menu at Level 4 is filled with comfort food favourites, jooshed up and beautifully presented.
For starters I ordered the Smoked venison carpaccio, oxtail croquette, black currant mustard and quince. That smoky carpaccio was amazing, perfectly salty and complimented well by the black currant mustard. I was not a fan of the texture of the quinces, but the hit of sweetness made the dish tie together.
For mains I tried the most South African sounding item on the menu, lamb ribbetjies, with lamb rump, peas, pumpkin and peach chutney. I’m pretty sure I was served an entire sheep, and was unable to finish the delicious lamb that I’m sure songs will be written about. Flavour explosion.
And dessert, hazelnut molten cake, with caramel popcorn, ice cream and chocolate pearls. Piping hot chocolate moreish nom noms. <~ professional food terms. That popcorn was life changing, my only complaint is that there wasn’t more of it on my plate. Imagine popcorn covered in caramelised sugar and topped with chunky salt flakes. YUM.
Thanks to Tsogo Sun and 54 on Bath for hosting me and my partner. I love you guys. Totes for real.0
