Last night, we went to “Korzo” for dinner, and were really quite impressed; it’s relaxed vibe and modern culinary menu ensured that we had a casual yet enjoyable evening, with good food and even better cocktails. They place emphasis on freshness and quality, and they pride themselves on their daily made pasta; I browse the sous-vide menu, tempted by the sesame crusted pork, but Jacob persuades me to order the ‘Korzo Special Burger’, complete with chipotle remoulade, pancetta, and cheese. I ordered a side salad, with rocket, parmesan, and sun-dried tomatoes too, as we’ve been pretty atrocious at eating anything remotely healthy for the past four days. Jacob got the same.
The burger was good; the patty was meaty and juicy, the pancetta added a slight crisp, and it possessed a good depth of flavour, but the real highlight was the homemade remoulade; this was so, so tasty, and was flavoured with onion, garlic, chilli and mayo, and without the huge jugs of Pilsner we were served, the beautiful heat might have got a bit too much.
For the next three hours, we enjoyed their cocktail menu, and I had one of the best ‘Old Fashion’ cocktails I’ve had for a long while; the price is reasonable too, and I would recommend going there for a quick bite to eat or a few relaxed drinks in the evening.
Today, the pissing rain has made us decide to do a few chores we’ve been putting off for a while; I need new trousers (as I’ve torn a giant hole in my current pair), Jacob needs to buy a few things, we need to get some food for the train journey tomorrow (as we’re heading off to Budapest), and laundry is definitely necessary. I’ll end this blog here as I’m sure you don’t want an in-depth review of washing my boxers, although I am going to publish a short-story today if I get it finished in time. EDIT – I DID
Budapest is somewhere I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about, so if you’ve been and know a few jewels there please comment below, there seems to be so much available and we’re only staying for one whole day, so I’ve no idea how we’re going to prioritise. Also, if any of you are travelling at the moment drop me a comment and I’ll be sure to give your blogs a read, I love getting inspired from you guys!
