It is not often I would travel out of my comfort zone of Central London on a Friday night to the East End to eat out when you have so many choices of great restaurants on your doorstep but I have to say a visit to Adam Handlings new restaurant – The Frog is certainly worth the journey.
I have always been of fan of this extremely talented chef since watching him on MasterChef in 2013. I am sure if you ever watched that particular series you would agree he was head and shoulders above the rest and had amazing skill in the kitchen. He then went on to win numerous awards and accolades and once I heard he was opening his own restaurant I had to go and take a look.
The restaurant is based in the heart of Shoreditch and is a great location to attract a young and vibrant crowd. The atmosphere inside is very relaxed and warm with the staff dressed casual and really make you feel comfortable. It was great to see the open kitchen and chef Adam working on the pass as you enter the premises.
The menu was nice and simple with titles Garden, Sea and Land. We decided to go with the tasting menu, which I thought was amazing value at £45 and a delicious bottle of Viognier. I was delighted when the man himself brought us the first dish personally which I thought was a lovely touch and explained what we were eating, this was to occur throughout the dining experience with different members of his kitchen team serving us each dish at the table which is a brilliant idea and very unique.  From the first bite of the first dish I knew this was going to be a great night. Adam’s food melts in your mouth and has such amazing flavours and texture that you really don’t want to finish the plate without wanting more. It is very difficult to pick just one favourite dish as they just seemed to get better with each course. If I had to pick one it would be the rump of lamb with black garlic, artichokes and sour cream. Not only were the flavours amazing but it literally looked like art on a plate. The surprise dish for me was the cheese doughnuts. At first I did not like the thought of this sickly sounded dish, but I was soon won over with the first bight and soon demolished the rest, again needing more of them!
A visit to The Frog must not be complete without trying their amazing drinks board. I had heard that they made their own frog gin so I had to try. This was truly unbelievable and looked amazing and nicely decorated and I savoured every sip. I only wished I had bought a bottle to take away. Oh well, there is always next time!
