⚖️ 8.5/10 - ‘Veal Schnitzel Sandwich’
🚇 Chancery Lane
Hidden down a staircase off Fetter Lane is Clifford’s, a saucy restaurant bar that focuses on the classics (think 🦆 à l’🍊, skate wing etc.) headed up by the talented chef Gemma Ellis, ex-Harwood Arms. The dark teal colour of the walls were slinky enough to get any human aroused, let alone a ravenous sandwich 🐻
🍞: sandwich loaf. Made using a ‘poolish’, a kind of starter dough, but not sourdough, to add flavour & bubbles. The crust was finished with lashings of butter, like an OAP with a tube of lube. I had arrived at the perfect time: it had come fresh out the oven like a newborn 👶🏼
🍖: veal schnitzel, cranberry jelly, sauerkraut & homemade pickles.
💭: Textually, this had me juicing at the groin. A crunchy batter on the veal, soft bread, gooey jelly, and a stringy crunch on the sauerkraut. It was everything you’d ask for. Not overloaded and fetishised like most of the food in London at the moment, it had focus and clarity; after all, it’s Gemma’s favourite, why overthink and ruin it? A couple things to 📝: the jelly was a bit too thick - albeit delicious - and as such it hadn’t spread too well. I’d also have liked a tad more acidity in the kraut 🇩🇪 - I actually put the pickles in the 🥪 to elevate it further 👌🏽
I’m being very pernickety, and that’s because I think Gemma would want that. Overall, it was an absolute bobby dazzler, I was very impressed with the space, the food, the company and the innovative 🍹 (‘Plumdog Millionaire’). Clifford’s is a labour of love that is set for great things - can’t wait to see where it goes 💫

London, UK 🇬🇧. This was your most liked post of mine in 2018! Two iconic London spots in one photo ❤. I am actually going back to London in March but only for a few days to spend some time with friends! Not sure I'll have time to take photos there again but I'll do my best! Are you guys going back to a place you went to in 2018? 🤓
ᴘʜᴏᴛᴏ ᴛɪᴘ ✷ if you are facing the London Eye 🎡 from the other side of the Thames you will find this cute spot on your right (just before Big Ben).
Smile and let everyone know today, you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday❤️😄

❤️ I’ve been photographing this corner so many times, but every time I pass by this place I always notice something new. Look how beautiful is the light reflected from windows from the house on the other side of the road ✨ There’s always something new to see, even in things that we think we know so well. Sometime it’s enough to just look up and notice 👀 to find something that you’ve never payed attention to before, while being busy with busy daily life 🤓 Does this happen to you sometimes?
