London – The Black Lion Restaurant


I recently have a new favorite spot located along Kilburn High Road in London, UK. The Black Lion Restaurant is an incredible restaurant with a menu that caters for customers between all ages. The restaurant and pub is situated opposite the Tricycle Theater olong Kilburn High Road, hence attracting people using the theater.

Despite the fact that the restaurant has been in operation for a long time, it still attracts customers from many parts of the world mainly because of the quality of their foods and their wide variety of wines.

The chef is excellent at making British classics as well as foods from different cultures. As such, the restaurant attracts a broad range of customers.
I love the fact that the pub combines both a dining area and a bar. The Black Lion brings together the tradition of a classic English pub with freshly cooked English and British fresh food and a fabulous wine list. There is also a separate menu for children hence giving families a chance to spend time together at the restaurant.

I particularly love oven baked Gressingham duck breast. This is usually accompanied by sweet potato gratin. The best parts of my meals is the top pudding with my favorite being the vanilla crème brûlée.
Other great items on the menu include starters such Guam salad.

The main menu is made up of food items such as Black Lion fish and chips, vegetarian and beef burgers, honey roast parsnips, broccoli, and pancetta and grilled polenta stack, all at very affordable prices. Cakes and ice cream are also available. The restaurant serves all children meals with some ice cream.
The restaurant opens on all days and has excellent staff who welcome customers warmly and serve them meals as ordered. This great customer staff relationship, and the good quality foods make the service worth the amount paid for.

I would recommend the restaurant for couples going on dates, or families who want to spend time and share meals and drinks together.

Food is bae’ is a phrase I would use when it comes to my perspective of food. I mean, I like diversity and when I find a dish that fascinates me, I usually write a review and try the dish more often. What interested me of late in my travels is a dish I was served in Sarova Hotel. The Hotel is located in Nairobi, Kenya. You just take an eight minute walk from Kenya Convection centre.

I usually like a personalized service because of my eating habits, I enjoy savouring every drop of greatness in a tantalizing meal. I got to see how the meals were being made. I had never felt myself as a part of the kitchen in my life before. I got to have real insights into the cuisines. I just had to book a room to have the same experience all over again.

Back to the dish that fascinated me, it is called was Pilau that was side punched with Chutney Masala. Every bite of this dish felt like small drops of heaven. I felt like digging into my plate more and more but again I did not want the taste to cease on my buds that fast. I was forced to have two plateful of the dish. On top of that the service of the hotel was like no other I had seen. It was so distinctive. The dress code of the waiters, the nuance of their language and etiquette.

To those who might be wondering how the chutney Masala and Pilau is prepared, I asked one of the chefs who advised me to follow Chef Ali’s recipe. It is the one that most hotels use for themselves. He has a blog where he posts most recipes. Nonetheless, the chefs that work in Sarova are amongst the top chefs in the country.

And the side punch (Chutney Masala)
