Last month we saw some new restaurants opening with a few of them doing soft launch and one was Edwins Borough. The restaurant is located above a pub and only seconds from Borough tube station.
I started with fresh oyster, followed by Scallops in filo served with Harrissa sauce (£6). The scallops was still moist and had the flaky texture from the filo coating.
Another nice starter of the evening was the crispy pork belly and cauliflower (£6).
Main I choice the Guinea Fowl served with brussels tops and butter beans (£15). I thought the guinea fowl was just a touch over done since I am not a fan of dry chicken. Out of the two guinea fowl we ordered on our table, mine was slightly burnt on one side.
The best main on the table was the Wild Venison served with baby root veg and shallot puree (£17). It is the one main that I tried and recommend. It would be one that I would have chosen if I did not wanted to try the guinea fowl.
We finished the meal with dessert or afters as it is refer to on the menu. Apart from the selection of cheese, there are only two dessert to select – chocolate fondant served with honeycomb ice cream (£6) or pear and almond tart with chattily cream (£6).
I really loved the honeycomb ice cream and you could smell the fragrant of the honey. I could scoops of the ice cream with out the chocolate fondant.
The pear and almond tart gave me that homemade feeling and would be the dessert for those who do not have a sweet tooth.
Overall I thought Edwins Borough served nice British cuisine. It gives the area of Borough more choices for lunch and dinner.
