LIFESTYLE: Chocolate Week At Fish Market, Liverpool Street
In celebration of Chocolate Week (12-18th October 2015), Fish Market invited us down to try their limited edition chocolate pot designed in collaboration with Doisy & Dom. Like I was going to turn that down especially since not only was it National Chocolate Week but on Wednesday when we went, it was actually National Dessert Day too!
The place itself was tucked away down a side road just outside of Liverpool Street station. I loved that it had outdoor seating with heated lamps too so if it wasnt raining, we definitely would have stayed out there. Inside had a great atmosphere for a wednesday night - it was relaxed and a little bit posh but seemed perfect for everyone - there were men in suits having an after work dinner, couples and lots of girly tables chatting away all enjoying the food!
I took Georgia along with me again and we ended up sharing our whole meal which was nice - not something I'd risk with Andrew haha. To start we ordered a seafood sharing platter and here, I thought I'd give a special mention to our waitress who was so helpful - as soon as we told her that Georgia was gluten free she sorted everything out for us - she arranged our sharing platter to be brought out on two dishes, one being completely gluten free - so whilst I ate half of the goujons and the amazing salt and pepper squid, Georgia got stuck in peeling the king prawns and eating the scallops.
We both wanted seabass for our main so instead of ordering a dish each we decided to order a whole fish and shared it. We got the see the fish before it was cooked and then it came back to us in two massive fillets with the most amazing crispy skin.
And of course we got a couple of side too! Broccoli and mash - I love mash!
But neither of us managed to finish it so Georgia ended up taking home a doggy bag full of fish for lunch the next day!
After some more wine and a little break, we was presented with what we were actually there for - The Chocolate Pot. It was served in a cute little glass jar with two super thin pieces of sugary, buttery, shortbread on the side which was the perfect accompanyment to the rich, dense chocolate moose. It was super indulgent and the perfect little treat for National Chocolate Week!
Be sure to pop down to Fish Market to try it yourself! But be quick, the dessert will only be served until the 18th.
