After hours of admiring fantastic work at Victoria and Albert Museum, both of us hungry people were about to set foot into the french chain restaurant Aubaine. Lucky for us, we caught a glimpse of a quaint looking restaurant with paintings on the window. We curiously went to sneak a peek and immediately smiled, nod our heads and went in for a table.
This restaurant is hidden on an alley off High Street Kensington. It is an authentic Italian restaurant decorated with bright, quirky murals. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Even the menu is so pretty.
When we were told there is Lobster Spaghetti on the special’s menu, both of us lobster lovers could not get any more excited. We did not even blink; closed the menu without browsing any further and decided that was for lunch. Easy choice. The spaghetti was home made, cooked al dante. It was well flavoured with the tomato sauce and lobster was cooked well, not over done. Just so you know, the lobster meat has been peeled and the shell was for decoration only.
Something else that I would like to highlight is the non alcoholic drinks from Juiceology that has no artificials or preservatives. They served these artistry beverages in Arcadia Restaurant which was the first time I came across it. These drinks use complex ingredients but subtly flavoured, which makes them so interesting to drink. I also like how they have a flavour map at the back of the bottle. It gives the beverage the unique touch and that the brand takes great importance in great flavours.
This is the restaurant I will be returning to when I am around the area.
