I am super late to the party on this one. Medlar, located just after the bend in the Kings Road, has been on my radar to try for a long time, and I am so glad that I finally did.
A girlfriend and I booked a table for lunchtime on a Friday, and Medlar was buzzing. This is definitely the place to power lunch in Chelsea.
When we said we were celebrating (hey, I am going to milk this childbirth thing for as long as I can!) the sommelier quickly attended to us and suggested a delicious bottle of sauvingon blanc.
Our waiter was very verbal about what we should order. He insisted that we must start with the crab ravioli with shrimp and leeks in a bisque sauce, and so we both agreed. All I can say is you must go and try for yourself because it was just scrumptious.
I followed with this artichoke dish… yum!
Artichokes barigoule with burrata, butter beans, rocket pesto and toasted sourdough
And we ended with this delicious cheesecake…
Vanilla cheesecake with poached rhubarb and hazelnut crumble
The food was just incredible, and the service was great. I will say that when we first sat down I felt like we were being a little bit rushed to order, obviously because the place was packed, but when the waiters realized we were going to take our sweet time finishing our vino, they calmed down.
(1) Book a table.
(2) Order the crab ravioli and the cheesecake.
