Dinner Was Good – Signature 21
Dinner was a four course affair with wines supplied by Tukulu Wines. I would firstly like to say that considering the evening was put together by students, overall the experience was better than some “professional” restaurants I have frequented.
Yet, there are always points that could do with improvement. These might seem small but will one day make the difference between success or failure.
The starter was a Haloumi and Avocado salad, with asparagus. All seven people at our table commented at the lack of visible avo on the plate. We are all keen avo eaters and were expecting more from this dish.
That was followed by a butternut soup. No faults to report, so that’s a good thing. The mains were either Pan fried pork chops, a veg dish that no one ordered or rump steak with veg and potato wedges.
The steaks were good but not brilliant, this had more to do with the product as apposed to the preparation as the cuts had some sinew in them. Yet they were juicy and cooked as requested. The pork chops looked a little thin to me also, but no one had a complaint so once again that’s a good thing!
The dessert was a Malva pudding, something I am not normally mad about, but it was very good and everybody finished their serving. Overall I give them a thumbs up and wish the young entertainers the best in their future endeavours!
I would suggest that you give them a chance, the restaurant forms part of their last year practical and is running until 11 October.
