I want to share with you a temporary restaurant in the The Royal Academy of Arts London called FLASH, which is part of GSK Contemporary that I went to back in December 2008. As it is a temporary restaurant it has now been removed from the art gallery.
We went to FLASH for the Wedgwood chinaware limited edition design on it. My particular favourite is this panda face plate.
The other designs are also as nice and I am now a owner of some of the chinaware designs. They were expensive, although some were bought second hand as when they closed, FLASH was selling the used chinaware to the public at a lower price.
I would had prefer to have gone for the Josiah Cream Tea (High tea), but instead went for lunch at FLASH – a 3 course lunch of French cuisine.
Starter: Dorset crab, grapefruit, avocado and spinach
Main course: Duck confit, spinach, wild mushrooms, mustard sauce
This tasted like a salty duck ready to be wrap in a pancake 😛 The mustard sauce with the wild mushrooms I felt didn’t really mix. Friends had Sirloin steak, which was like a Sunday roast…came with a wood looking like Yorkshire pudding and a big bowl of potatoes and a bowl of vegetables. But I think out of the main dishes we ordered was the cod fish that came with cherry tomatoes and spinach. The fish was cooked perfectly, not over-cooked or under-cooked…just right!
Dessert: Orange pannacotta, blood orange sorbet, polenta tuille
This was the best out of all the choices from the menu – Chocolate and raspberry cake, raspberry sorbet, chocolate tuille and even the Lemon trifle, almond cake, lemon granita. The favourite part of my dessert was the blood orange sorbet, sadly it was not enough for me to indulge 😛
