    Dinner at London Street Brasserie

    Our Dinner at London Street Brasserie Reading started at 7pm and our table was on the top floor. We are a lovely view of the River Kennet and all the eateries located alongside it. The weather was cooler but not windy nor raining with was a bonus.

    {1} London Street Brasserie – Starters

    Though in hand sight I would have been better off without the starter, it was absolutely delicious. My only regret is I was filled by the starter that I did not have much room for the main meal. Regardless, I think I had such a wise choice when I chose the Half freshly prepared lobster. Crispy bacon. Parmesan crisp. Avocado Caesar. Best lobster I have ever had, everything about the dish was salivating and delicious.

    {2} London Street Brasserie – Mains

    As mentioned above, I regretted the starter because it hindered my enjoyment of the mains. I was seriously looking forward to eating the Roast cod. Tempura soft shell crab. Bok choi. Rice noodle laksa. Lime. Coriander. The cod was cooked to perfection, the coriander wasn’t overpowering and laksa was deliciously soft. It was a huge shame that I was too full to touch the shell crab as it looked absolutely delicious.

    {3} London Street Brasserie – Dessert

    Though I was took stuffed to polish off my mains, I had enough room for the dessert. I don’t know about you but I have a separate stomach when it comes to dessert. It doesn’t matter just how full I am, when it comes to dessert, I always have space. I knew from the moment I sat down that I wanted the Crème brûlée. Stem ginger brandy snap for dessert. It was everything yummy and the stem ginger brandy snap was a nice twist. 

    We had such a lovely time at the London Street Brasserie, the dinner went smoothly and fun all round. Whilst our bill came to a shocking £350, £70pp, I think it was worth the money for a 3-course meal. This includes the wine and various drinks we ordered on a table of 5. Our 3-course meal is from the Christmas Menu which costs £38pp.
