Tom's Kitchen is one of the hotspots of famed Michelin starred chef Tom Aikens. I had to comment as i'd read it was going into receivership or something but it's actually really good and worth hunting out!!! He has a couple of other pricier places but this one seemed right up my alley, comfort food in a relaxed trendy slightly crowded diner, lots of meat, pies – just plain old hearty food! We got there about 8pm, half an hour early and the place was heaving so we sat in the luxury bar upstairs. When i say luxury, i mean leather sofas and papers to read! We sat for a little while before being called down for our meals. The menu itself is not huge but it's split into types of meat and one or two vegetarian options. I decided on slow roast pork as i hardly cook it, whilst partner had roast leg of lamb. Both were equally delicious and melt in the mouth meals and truthfully, i rather missed my meal when it was gone…for dessert we picked a romantic Baked Alaska for two which the waitress brought along in a copper pot and set it alight for us. This was lovely but could have been improved as it was like one giant burning meringue. My basic knowledge of Baked Alaskas suggest that there should be a bit more ice cream! But for visual impressions, this was quite glorious.
Overall, the bill came to £56 which was for two mains, one side, one dessert for two + 2 soft drinks. In my mind that was quite a lot but then again the mains were near perfect and since id certainly be going back, it was well worth it. Finally how did it set my heart alight? Well, that's just a nod to having my pudding set on fire, so to speak – how many Sunday evenings can i say end that way!
