I was invited to the launch meal of a new pop-up restaurant near to St Paul's Cathederal. It is called Wiggies.
Wiggies has taken up residence for six months upstairs in the Rising Sun pub in Carter Street EC4 in London. The theme is pork and all dishes contain some.
My friend Val came with me and upon arrival we were sat at a table for four and told we would be sharing the table. A lovely young couple joined us and after introductions we all chatted right through the meal. We had a lovely cocktail made primarily of tequila and lime juice.
We were given a cocktail as we sat down. The starter was a Black Pudding Cappucino! Sounded weird but in fact was delicious!
Second was a ham hock terrine with crackling dusted butternut squash, crispy pigs ear and rhubarb relish. The terrine was so tasty and really tender. The rhubarb relish was sweet and spicy.
Following on from that we were served a seared scallop with hot smoked pork belly and ham hock, asparagus and pea shoots. The pork belly was so delicately smoked and the scallops lovely and tender.
Thank you Wiggies for inviting me and Val to experience this lovely meal. I hope to return before your six months are up.
