Merricote – a French briefing

This is far from a real review, but rather a vague but very positive recollection of olfactory memories attached to these lick-a-licious photos…

High street is jam packed with quirky little restaurants and cafe, and Merricote is certainly one of them.

House made duck rillettes & crackers
Triangle bites
Mussels, anochovy, caperberry, brioche

Tuna and kingfish, tonic, pomegranate, wasabi – a fresh Japanese twist.

Salt cured duck, melon, pinenuts, kohl rabi

Quail hot pot, marbled egg, broth

Hopkins river rump, oxtail, chickpeas, hazelnut
Spear creek lamb, nose to tail
Kipler potato, chervril and chive

Dutch mess, homage to everything orange – swirling halo of fairy floss around a fragrant grapefruit sorbet.

Cardamom infused milk chocolate mouse, griottines

Milky tea, honey and cookies

Rating: Yummy+1.5 – it’s French, it’s cosy, and it’s a little quirky around the edges. The flavours are balanced, and the desserts were sublime!

  1. Man all the photos really do the food justice in terms of me drooling all over the keyboard and repeating to myself that I need to go there!

    Woo, this is a delayed post! They have changed their dessert menu since your visit, by the way. Still awesome as when we first went. 🙂

  5. Your pictures are divine! I will be going there tomorrow and I am excited! x
