Spent a few days in London this past week. Possibly the most memorable few hours were spent with my friend Dom in the Norfolk Arms in Bloomsbury nibbling tapas, quail, lamb, Spanish cheese & quince jelly, quaffing La Gitana and then… sinnin’ it with a sticky toffee pudding. The Norfolk Arms is excellent; très chilled, great service, quality scoff without any of that pretentious prima donna Londonitis. I did remark to Dom upon chomping the sticky toffee,
"This is the best sticky toffee pudding I’ve ever had. In fact this is the best dessert I’ve ever had."
As I blog, I’ll chasten my initial enthusiasm with a smidgen of reserve until I eat here again next month, but I very much suspect my opinion will remain unaltered. The quail was also superb. The menu changes regularly. Here are some more snaps and thanks Dom for an absolutely corkin’ lunch.
