On Monday me and Tom had one of our date nights, and we decided to go to Bill’s in Holborn to have dinner. We like It, we’ve been there a few times and we are always up for a come back once in a while. There is a cosy atmosphere, nice music, it’s not so loud (especially at the beginning of the week when it’s less crowded) and they serve a very nice fruity cider – my regular choice from now on.
Initially I was planning of having their delicious fish pie, but as I sat down and had a look at the menu, something else caught my eye.
I must admit I’m a massive fan of duck. Even thinking about its tender and succulent meat livens up my tastebuds. And whenever it’s available, i really can’t say no.
And obviously I didn’t say no also this time. Slow roasted Gressingham duck leg served with a watercress, pea, broad bean, red cabbage and basil salad with lemon dressing, to contrast its juiciness with a bit of an acidic crunch, feta and spring onion potato croquettes and a dollop of wasabi mayonnaise. I can honestly say I was absolutely delighted by it.
Perfect size, perfect cooking, crispy surface and inner tenderness. A-Ma-zing!
If it’ll ever happen that you are in a Bill’s restaurant (there are several across the UK, check their website here) I invite you to try this dish. It’s definitely worth it.
