Perfect posh custard at the Saint Giles Hotel. September 13, 2011

Topic #249: Describe your favorite restaurant in the world. Include a link to their website. And if your description is more like a review than not, consider re-posting it to yelp or urbanspoon.

My favourite restaurant is one I’ve been to very recently for the first time, at the St Giles House Hotel in Norwich. Mum and I have been working our way round the different places doing carveries recently and have had mixed experiences, most are good; but the St Giles was amazing! I judge a restaurant on how good the roast potatoes are and there’s were amazing! The yorkshires were well risen; but not too crispy and the gravy was yummy, full of flavour and not too greasy. It was all delicious and the hotel was beautiful with great interior design, lots of classy marble and gold. We sat in a large leather seated booth, which was private and really comfortable.

The best bit, without doubt was dessert – I had a white chocolate pannacotta with a gooseberry compote which was the perfect combination of smooth  sweetness and sharp puree… it’s making my mouth water again! Mum had a strawberry, peach and ginger crumble, with proper homemade topping and the best creme anglaise (posh custard) I’ve ever eaten. The crumble was a bit sharp for me; but the topping was buttery and lovely. We split our desserts, having half each and I ended up mainly having the custard on its own, totally divine!

I’m looking forward to going back again soon – maybe just for dessert!
