We cant wait to have a drink firmly in our hands come Friday evening and with the weekend soon approaching, we wanted to share with you a great restaurant in Bethnal Green, London. So if you need somewhere to eat and drink this weekend, we’d be happy to share this gem we’ve found you!
The name is referring to California, where the wine country is littered with Spanish Missions: the first sacramental grape was called The Mission.
At Mission, the country food (and wine) sound delicious; tender octopus with tomato and grains of farro, topped with a scoop of garlicky aioli, duck pappardelle, pasta pleasingly al dente, duck bosky, feral and rich. Salted ox cheek served on firm lentils with a herby salsa verde. And it just does not stop there, desserts include a buttermilk pudding steadied by cantucci biscuits and raw peaches. It seems chef Chef James de Jong has pulled out all the stops for this amazing menu, the food is not to be ignored, it is as much about the food and it is the grape at Mission.
A meal for two with wine will probably set you back around £100, but for the quality of the menu and the carefully picked California wine, that doesn’t sound so bad.
