A full dining experience
Posted on 07 / 13 / 2014
Coming to Greenz was one of my most pleasant dining experiences in London. We arrived at this out-of-the-way little restaurant and were greeted by the friendly owner, who engaged and chatted with us throughout the time we were there, giving the place a warmer, more personal feel. The menu has some interesting items and some of these have creative flourishes. I ordered the lassi which is spiced with ginger (and perhaps other things). This is interesting and I enjoyed it at first but it may not be everybody's cup of tea. Food-wise we started with the corn fritters For a main I ordered the Cashew Nut and Mushroom Wellington, excited at the prospect of puff pastry. This was delicious, although it was accompanied by both a spinach sauce and steamed spinach, which might be a bit much greenery if you're not Popeye. My partner ordered the burger (with bap) which I sampled and it seemed nice enough and my partner agreed with this. The accompanying coleslaw had a slightly pasty texture though and left something to be desired. For dessert we shared the lemon and poppseed cake and a bowl of ice cream which were both a treat. Small issues aside, I would make this a regular choice for eating out.
