This might sound familiar to anyone I’ve met up with recently, that I am very much enjoying my life at the moment. As a rather self-disciplined person, I still get up fairly early in the mornings (definitely before 7am) and appreciate my morning coffees. Yes, I am actually allowing my taste buds to acknowledge the quality of the coffee after I get up, rather than treating it as some sort of brown-coloured liquid which forcefully wakes myself up and cleanses my tummy, like I did before. Then I’d work on my projects for most of the day and put some efforts into preparing dinners. Also I took the first driving lesson this week, only to realise that me and driving are meant for each other. It’s certainly not as daunting as I perceived before. Anyhow, what I really want to say is that I’ve got enough on my hands to work on, but at the same time I can find tranquility in my time and in my life.
My dining experience in The Greenhouse today precisely echoed my current state of mind. The Greenhouse is a Two-Michelin star restaurant located in the Mayfair London renowed for its classic French cuisine. If you travel by underground, you may get off at either the Bond Street station or Green Park station and walk for a few minutes either way. The facade of the restaurant is pretty low-key, featuring a serene garden with stone steps leading to the front door of the restaurant. The restaurant is furnished with modern and contemperory art decos, harmniously cohabitating with the soothing green and cream theme colours. Flowing with tranquil ambiance in the buzzing Mayfair, this restaurant is undoubtably a perfect choice for business meetings.
Accompanied by a glass of Moët Vintage, here comes the stars of the show for today. You will have to excuse me for my rather inadequte description of what each plate is. The next four photos are the amuse-bouche served before the starter.
Overall, it was a very serene dining experience. Just a friendly tip if you are planning to go, better to have some formal attire 🙂
Slightly out of topic, I’ve been reading the novel published in 1936 today – <The Jamaica Inn> by Daphne du Maurier, which was later made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock. It is full of suspence yet contrastingly beautiful words – highly recommend it!
