This is one spice trail you need to follow! It’s been a while since I’ve been blown away by a new restaurant but the food and service at Foley’s soft launch has left me more than impressed. Mitz Vora, former sous chef at The Palomar, has created an exciting menu of street food inspired dishes from all over the world. Most importantly, there’s a memorable selection of veggie dishes. Yay!
Foley’s is a party of flavours with artistically presented food and popping colours. The menu consists of small sharing plates separated into bits and bobs, veg, meat and from the sea making choosing items clear and easy peasy. A major perk of being vegetarian is I could try most of the 7 or 8 vegetarian dishes which made menu selection and elimination simple. If I was able to eat everything on the menu, I would definitely have struggled deciding. Really really struggled.
We tried the majority of the vegetarian dishes the menu holds and they did not disappoint.
Indonesian peanut crackers and tomato sambal
Grilled sourdough and fennel butter
Spiced sweet potato fritters – so good we had to order this twice. Great flavours and I really enjoyed the saffron coconut curry.
The Indonesian peanut crackers, spiced sweet potato fritters and aubergine were my highlights. I’d recommend trying everything I had, but these three dishes in particular won me over.
Now on to the best bit. You’re probably thinking how could I possibly have had space for dessert!? There is always room for dessert. ALWAYS. Leaving a new restaurant without trying the dessert for me is like leaving a crossword unfinished. (Ok, I never actually do crosswords, but you get the gist – maybe more like leaving a gripping TV show unfinished).
Baklava cheesecake – Cardamom cheese, puff pastry, walnut, pistachio and rose petals. You cannot leave Foley’s without trying this. That’s all I’m saying about this one.
The restaurant officially opens tomorrow (1st July).
