A friday night free is the perfect excuse to try a new restaurant.
I’m always wanting to try new restaurants and after a quick google I had booked us a table at Cornish Tiger on Battersea Rise.
But before we talk about the food let’s talk fashion; particularly date night fashion.
The Mr and I have been together for over 6 months but I still like to make the effort on date night. Jeans to keep the casual aspect with a slightly dressier top to make it slightly smarter. The weather is slowly getting warmer in the UK so it was the perfect timing to whip out a crop top.
Cornish Tiger is a blend of British, Asian and African with most of its ingredients coming directly from Cornwall with an ethical food chain.
Seated in the window with the late sun on our backs we kicked the menu off with some cocktails; I highly recommend the Elderflower Presse; gin, apple juice, elderflower cordial topped with soda.
For starters I had the Grilled Halloumi with a gorgeous red pepper sauce, sweet melon which cut through the saltiness of the cheese perfectly and spiced crushed walnuts to add a crunch. The Mr had the Soft Shell Crab but I was too busy enjoying mine to take a snap of his.
His main course of Duck Breast with Caramelised Peach, Duck Croquettes on a bed of Savoy Cabbage.
Smoked Chicken, Avocado, Pomegranate and Caesar Dressing. Not the most exciting dish but well executed.
Best Chunky Chips i’ve had in a long time perfectly seasoned.
He had a very indulgent Chocolate Fondant which really melted in the mouth.
I can’t resist a Cheeseboard and this one sported some offerings I had not seen on a menu before. A blog of rich creamy Camembert, a stinky blue which I quickly handed over to the Mr, a beautifully mature Cheddar and a slice of Yarg which had a tangy taste with a crumbly core.
We rolled ourselves back to the train station looking at menu’s along the way to plan our next supper out.
Any Clapham/Battersea recommendations?
