Last night was one of those nights – there was nothing in the fridge but random condiments and a few limp vegetables, and I couldn’t be bothered to go grocery shopping and then cook. A perfectly justifiable excuse to dine out! So I threw on a snuggly knit cape and moseyed down to a cherished local hotspot, Manuka Kitchen.
I’m crazy for their brunch, but had not yet been for dinner. Let me just say it was so good, I had to go up to the kitchen counter afterwards and thank the chef for the best gnocchi I’ve had in recent memory. On top of everything – the convenient Fulham Road location, the pared down rustic atmosphere, the excellent yet affordable wine list – the service is the real kicker. You’ve gotta love a place where the owner waits on you. Joseph is the nicest guy – warm smile, affable, and of course knowledgable about everything on the menu. The whole experience was sweet as Manuka honey!
I might put off the grocery shopping a little more often!
