I was attracted to the gimmick that was attached to the name 10 cases. Only 10 red and 10 whites were ordered each time, meaning that once the wine was finished a new wine will come onto the scene. But after my first visit here I just knew that it would be one of my firm favourites, it’s small but has a warm cosy atmosphere with good simple food, which was the reason I suggested it for the second part of Mr A birthday.
I stole a bite of the oxtail and foie gras terrine from Mr A’s plate and since I’ve never had foie gras before, if it tastes anything like that then I like it. Its rich, meaty but has this smooth buttery texture. I personally ordered the Octopus Salad from the appetizers menu (?) but it could easily be classed as a starter as the portion size is quite large.
We opted for the large brill to share between the 2 of us, it came with a potatoes and a side salad. The brill, well I’ve never had brill before, has the texture and taste that reminds me of Halibut and Turbot. As the two are one of my favourite fishes to eat then naturally I enjoyed the Brill, plus it was cooked as a whole which is even better. Everything tastes better with the bones on, that is being very chinese of me.
Dessert was not ordered this time as we had a cake ordered from Pauls already, but if you do have dessert I would recommend their pear tart. With Reisling to accompany the meal and Moet to finish, we were living the high life for the night. Well for the two students on the table, one of them being me.
Do go to the 10 cases when you have a chance, it really isn’t a place to be missed.
