....In my absence from his celebration proper, Robin & I went out to dinner tonight to celebrate his turning 30.
He decided upon Railroad Cafe, which was an inspired choice. Having only eaten breakfast there, I was unsure what their evening menu was like. It was good.
We started with crispy pig skin with avocado and chilli dip.
Then roast mackerel in a tomato sauce with potatoes.
Then for dessert I went for lemon pollenta cake, whilst Robin went for stewed apricots & sour cream.
We went for a pint after at the Kenton, then on to Off Broadway for a whiskey sour - the perfect digestif.
A great evening and a perfect, civilized celebration. Happy birthday Robin.
