Yesterday evening we went to Cottons Islington, a Caribbean restaurant in Exmouth Market and it was wonderful. The restaurant, the food, the coctails, the music, the service, everything was perfect.

Caribbean Masterchef 2011 Award winning head chef Andrew McIntosh’s each plate was delicious and well presented. Before our bottle of wine, we tried one of their coctails, The Jamaican Mule, a Caribbean classic of Appleton Special Rum, Angostura bitters, fresh lime and ginger beer.

Then as starters we had Callaloo aspargus and goat cheese tart, drizzled with sun blush tomato dressing and Cottons Caribbean mezze platter, salt fish fritter, plantain, Buffalo wings, ribs and garlic and ginger bread.

As mains we choosed their famous curry goat served with rice and peas and sautéed goat fish, in a light coconut lime leaf curry sauce, served with sea food rice. As dessert we tasted spiced pineapple tart with mango sorbet.

And for icing the cake we tasted one more coctail which called “Killer Dopi”. The info on the menu about this coctail made us to choose this one  for closing: This one’s only for the brave. Four different rums, apricot liqueur, Blue Curacao, orange, pineapple & fresh lime juice. Created to turn the living into a “Doppi” that’s Jamaican for Ghost.

Delicious!

Today there was a summer fair in our ex-neighborhood Marylebone. And it was a lucky, sunny day (mostly),  like a nice spring day. The fair was taking place in all the big streets of Marylebone and it was a mix of a big food market and a big playground (lots of children everywhere). Marylebone Farmers Market also was there like every sunday morning.

There was lots of food everywhere, roasted meat, sausages, paella, etc. The most colorful ones were the cupcakes. 

London Cat’s choice in the fair for today’s breakfast : roasted meat and typical British summer coctail Pimm’s.
