Country Mouse In The City: Baltic

Last month Eileen and I popped out for dinner to Baltic, in Southwark. It was so nice to have a proper girly catch up and chat life, work, and her wedding. The food was yummy Polish fare, using fresh ingredients and interesting pairings. Yum yum yum. Here are a few pics from the evening.

I love me some crisp white linens!

Pretty Eileen.  She always chooses our restaurants when we dine out – girl’s a food maven!

Decision time….

Great room!  We were the first of the pre theatre crowd, so I managed to snap the room before it filled.  By seven it was packed!

Oh hello, weeknight wine!

For my main course I had a traditional Polish stew with lots of meat (beef, pork, venison) and potato dumplings.  On the rainy grey night we visited it was just what the doctor ordered!  Alongside this we had lots of homemade bread which was far, far, far too good!

Pudding was poached pears with chocolate ice cream – delicious!

Hmmmm, what to choose?

Eileen chose some fritter-y yumminess for pudding (like me she’d plumped for stew for her main).

I really enjoyed our visit to Baltic.  Good food, great service, decent wine list, sensible prices.  I’d heartily recommend it for a date, a meal before catching a show at the Royal Festival Hall or the Old Vic, or a good old girly catch up.  They also have a formidable selection of vodkas, if that’s your bag! Na zdrowie!
