Squaremeal Review of Basement Sate ?

Avoid Basement Sate unless you’re prepared to put in some extra time in the gym, because it’s all too tempting to succumb to this sweet cellar’s promise of ‘well-made drinks and decadent desserts’. Cathleen McGarry’s naughty but nice, peanut brittle-toned dive comes on like a cool DJ lounge that could be a Paris Saint-Germain hotspot but for its lack of pretension. To drink, sate your senses with advanced Martinis and rebooted Old Fashioneds, or dip into so-now mixes such as Little Japan (Japanese whisky, sweet vermouth and Cynar artichoke liqueur) or The Best (vodka, wasabi syrup, apple and celery juice). For a double sugar rush, order edible confections ranging from yoghurt and lemongrass mousse with coconut granola and basil to a Rocher sphere of rich chocolate and hazelnut praline. A few savouries such as baked Camembert or mini beef Wellington also feature these days.

    On the hottest day of the year we headed down to Basement Sate, a cool safe haven in Soho, to escape from the blistering heat and treat ourselves.

    On Tuesdays they serve a cocktail and dessert pairing, with the idea that the drinks are meant to complement your food, an idea which I absolutely love.

    The three desserts were all very different which was fantastic, as I love being able to...

    I would class myself as a bit of a slap-dash, taste and tweak as you go kind of cook. My parents are exceptionally good cooks so I guess I picked up basic skills by diffusion as I never made a meal until I moved out of home at the start of university. Our family home has shelves of cookbooks but I doubt my parents meticulously follow the recipes, only really using them to get ideas for dishes and flavour combinations. In most cases when I ask my mother how much of this or that she puts into a certain dish of hers I’m trying to recreate, she unhelpfully tells me it’s ‘angga-angga’, which is her Malay version of saying...
