A Sneak Peek: Posh Lunch Club at Viajante

Well, hello there strangers! Apologies for the radio silence but I have had no internet. No internet?! Liberating and detrimental at the same time, I am back now and you can expect a few posts from me over the coming days to make up for it.

Today, I am afraid I am useless. Sleep deprived with few words of my own, I am fit to only crawl into a corner with my book (a good one it is too – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). I have a had a wee tummy upset, grim at worst, tiring at best. However, in advance of my next post – Posh Lunch Club at Viajante (Oooooo-er!) – I would like to share some photos of a 3 course set lunch that I had at Viajante some months ago (mid May), but never got around to writing about. To whet your appetite in the short-term, while I gather mine.

I’ll be back soon, brim full of energy and bubbling with words to tell you all about the 6 course lunch I immersed myself in last weekend. Until then, enjoy these photos!

Petits Fours. The truffles are *sensational* Cep Truffles.

With matched drinks (3 – a beer, champagne & dessert wine) and coffee and petits fours, this came to £45. A bit of a fine dining bargain, no?

I like food. I like to make food. Eat food. Photograph food. Write about food. Mainly in London but when I am lucky or organised further afield.

  1. Well this all looks pretty fab. If you ever want another dodgy Essex geezer to accompany you for a posh lunch, drop me a line.

    Get well soon.

  3. Blimey, if that’s just a taster! Then can’t wait to her about last week’s luncheon!
    It reminds me of Per Se, unfortunately that wasn’t such a baragin as I recall.
    Will be adding to my list to visit.

  4. All of that looks incredible, from looks alone would be tough to pick a top dish, so looking forward to the full report. Hope you’re back in full health!
