One of our lovely team left us last week – what better excuse for a delicious lunch? We went round the corner to Honey & Co (which coincidentally, is just down the road from Bap & Pickle).
The place is TINY. Luckily, an organised one among us had booked a table (thanks Emma), so we squeezed in and took a look at the menu.
All the food looked absolutely delicious. It was very tricky to choose. What was easy to choose was what to drink.
The lemonade came highly recommended and arrived with a beautiful sprig of mint.
It was proper lemonade. The kind of lemonade that makes you pull faces when you drink it.
I struggled to choose just one thing off the menu. So I ordered two things (both starters, before you judge. I’m not that much of a fatty).
First up, a fresh peach salad with goats cheese, almonds and coriander.
Accompanied by some crispy potato and feta fritters, drizzled with thyme honey. They were served on a beautiful tile, which I kind of wanted to steal (I didn’t).
As if two starters wasn’t enough, we ordered cake to take back to the office.
I had some kind of chocolate-hazelnut loaf. It was sticky and delicious. And quite a large portion.
I loved Honey & Co. In fact, I loved it so much, I took Alex there for lunch the very next day.
I basically forced him to try the lemonade.
Then we shared a plate of falafel, which was served with salad and lemon tahini. The falafel were crispy and delicious, and not dry at all.
I ordered the aubergine for my main course (after envying Emma’s order the day before!). The salad it was served with was really refreshing and citrussy – Alex kept stealing forkfuls from my plate, that’s how delicious it was.
I never used to be a fan of aubergine, but when it’s this creamy, how can you resist?
Alex ordered some duck and cherry dumplings, which were AMAZING.
The second trip was every bit as good as the first.
We even took a slide of the same cake home (but to share. I’d learned my lesson from the day before).
I’d highly recommend a trip to Honey & Co. I’d also highly recommend booking a table (we saw lots of people get turned away because they were so full).
