Pilkingtons, City

We were wandering the city trying to decide where to go for dinner and suddenly this gorgeous place appeared out of nowhere. The beautiful lighting and intense floral decorations were simply too difficult to resist. Fortunately we were seated on the balcony even without a reservation. 

We started with the Manchego & Serrano ham croquettes ($12 for three) which just melted in our mouth. I'm not a fan of cheese but this croquette had just the right flavour and texture to enjoy. I ordered Marinated mushrooms ($18) which was very unlike me (as a meat lover) but it turned out to be the choice of the night. Four different kinds of mushrooms were cooked with baby beets, hazelnuts and grilled halloumi which complemented each other perfectly. Mushrooms were soft and tangy and I was craving for more. Semolina & squid ink pasta was little disappointing with its lack of flavours. Hand-cut fries with olive & anchovy mayonnaise weren't very special - in fact, I didn't take any notice of the dip.

However it was lovely just sitting in an environment which was put together with a vast amount of effort. Result was a beautiful and enjoyable night out.

Beautiful interiors will just blow you away.

Pasta wasn't satisfactory.
