REVIEW|THE WALDORF

Recently i had the opportunity to dine at the beautiful Waldorf hotel in aldwych.

One of the capital’s most iconic hotels,nestled deep inside london’s theatre district,and opened in 1908,The Waldorf is definitely a beauty to be beheld.Having been past numerous times i was super excited to be able to go inside.

The dining room was regal and grand,and it was so refreshing being able to eat in a place with such rich Edwardian history.

Prosecco in one hand and menu in the other, i chose to start with the salmon rillettes ( very similar to pate and commonly made with pork) dressed rocket salad and rosemary toast.The salmon was served inside an ice cold glass jar,smooth and salty a with peppery horseradish cream.

 

I followed with a crispy side of seabass ,garlic mash and red pepper marmalade.The fish was beautifully cooked,perfectly seasoned with a crisp skin.The pairing of the sharp marmalade and  delicate fish was something i had never tasted before and i was pleasantly surprised.The salty ness of the bass skin and sweetness of the marmalade made for a really interesting combination and is something i will definitely be experimenting with when i get the chance.

Of course i had to have dessert and decided to go with the german classic apple strudel.not your traditional flaky buttery pastry, this was thick,without layers and very firm.alongside were a creamy apple ice cream,delicious and smooth, a tangy cherry puree, and a velvety custard coating the base.

Whether it be a british afternoon tea or a full evening filled with food,I would absolutely recommend dining at the Waldorf. If you are looking for great service,a beautifully classic environment and an all round luxurious experience,look no further.
