43-51 Great Titchfield Street
After hearing several raves about the Riding House Cafe, reservations were made to take advantage of their soft opening 50% off special. The cocktail list was so fun that I had to start with a Pony Club which was a nice way to ease into the evening. A chopped salad with avocado and palm hearts was ordered to share, and while it was certainly good, I think I might agree with A that it can be a bit disappointing to order something that would be easily replicated at home. Mains were much more successful - the chorizo hash browns were a nice breakfast-for-dinner dish, and the rack of pork was juicy and perfectly cooked. Usually we would skip dessert but the table next to us ordered the hot fudge sundae, complete with macaroons and honey comb, and it looked irresistable. Perfect for sharing, it would have been too sweet for just one person to consume. With the soft opening discount, dinner was very reasonable - too bad it's already over...
