I used to work on client site in Soho in London all last spring and most of the summer. There was a place in Soho that I passed almost daily when going to get my lunch. I so often wondered what it was like and thought I should try it. My colleague had it also on his hit list to go so inspired by that when my sister and mum came to London for a visit we gave it a try. The place is called Randall and Aubin.
It spesialises in seafood and you can see all the fresh seafood in the window. They do all sort of dishes on their à la carte list so you are not only restricted to seafood. The wine selection is amazing too!
I ordered chevre salad for my main. The size was perfect. I love when meals are rather small so that I have definitely room for dessert. This salad was the most incredible combination of flavours, one of the best chevre salads I have eaten ever.
My mum and sister had fish and they were both extremely happy with their meals. My sister is a difficult one. She used to work for one of the most prestigious hotel and restaurant groups in Finland. Being so she has eaten so many fine dining dishes and tasted too many rare wines that taking her out for a dinner is always a challenge. This time she was super happy with my choice!
Randall and Aubin has changed their wine list since we were there but I remembered we went for Italian Vermentino and it was heavenly good. I tasted quite a few wines until I ended up choosing it. Was a good choice.
For a dessert as usual I went for a chocolate cake.
It was tasty but compared to the main course it was like a shadow..but good, nothing to complain. I guess my main was just so perfect that there was nothing really to compete with that.
One funny detail for all the ladies who read my blog..this place has the most stunning male waiters. My sister, mum and I were laughing so hard when thinking of the job interview..they must have some extra standards that applicants must fullfil :)!
After the dinner we headed to another place. It is a Spanish tapas place, we did not eat there but I have eaten there before and I wanted to mention this place in the same post. It is not far from Randall and Aubin, maybe 10 minute walk away. The place is called Copita. I may have mentioned it before. It is super nice. I have eaten there and I have also tasted quite a few of their wines (the wine list is amazing!). So if you fancy a good after work drink I recommend to go there.
