Chop House specials
Posted On July 30, 2009
We were at the Chop House again, and the wine was The Opportunist again. I went for the Venison Pâté again, and it was as good as before. My friend ordered from the specials board for her starter: the duck parcel. It was a large filo pastry parcel, filled with plenty of dark duck meat. Absoloutely delicious, was the verdict.
We both hit the specials board for main courses. I went, for the first time in a while, for the suet pudding: beef and game this time, and she for the pork fillet with wild mushroom mashed potatoes. Both, we concluded, were excellent. The pudding had a fantastic thin suet crust and a packed filling – plenty of steak and big chunks of game – and a side dish of potatoes and vegetables. The pork was tasty and moist, and the mushrooms added an excellent texture to the mash. An enjoyable evening, as always.
