Viajante was the venue for my birthday dinner and so it had a lot to live up to, which it did, and with bags of style. Not your expected location for an award winning restaurant, the town hall was a little drafty and vacant looking when we entered but that soon changed when the tables started filling up and the kitchen, visible from our table, got all fired up – literally.
There's no menu at Viajante, or at least there wasn't all those months back, which makes for an interesting if not slightly nerve wracking night for sticklers like me. Instead your asked how many courses and what you don't like and off you go on a culinary almost-blindfolded adventure. Dishes are vibrant, full of flavour and ridiculously innovative, pushing beyond boundaries and transporting you to a fantasy land of taste explosions.
The show, that is the kitchen, is equally entertaining and you can see your dish transform from worktop to pass. A must for enthusiastic foodies and adventurists.
