My friend and I ordered some steamed mussels and cockles. They were bathed in a spicy tomato broth with a crispy piece of bread hidden at the bottom, soaking up all the spicy brothy goodness. The bread was so out of this world delicious, that two weeks later I can still imagine the flavor in my mouth. So as I was researching for this post, double checking exactly what I had at The Spotted Pig, I read on their menu: steamed mussels and cockles and duck fat fried bread. My jaw dropped, hands over my mouth - duck fat! Well, even as a vegetarian, this was still the best thing I had in my mouth :)
For my meal, I had the pan roasted striped bass with tomatoes and saffron, and my friend had the popular chargrilled burger with Roquefort cheese and shoestring fries. I of course, had to get my own mountain of fries, and yes, I pretty much ate them all. I washed it all down with a cask beer too. Although, neither of us could barely move, we still managed to waddle over to Magnolia Bakery for some cupcakes.
