Terroirs

Terriors, next to charring cross station on William IV street is a great wine bar with an extensive wine list for most budgets that serves great food.

I went on a wednesday evening after being a Gordons wine bar, and luckily they managed to fit us in at the bar where a very knowledgable and helpful bar man got us a great bottle of wine. The menu consists of Charcuterie, cheese, small plates and a couple of main dishes, essentially everything you could wish for with wine!

We had the deep fried pigs head, which was amazingly tender pigs cheek in a crisp batter, accompanied by bitter leaves and pickled walnuts. The selection of charcuterie, including duck rilettes which was silky smooth and wonderfully rich, which on the fresh bread was impossible not to go back to. Pork and pistachio terrine and Felino Salami.

For mains we Shared the baked Mont d”or with new potatoes, endives and cooked ham. This was a great sharing dish, spooning the molten cheese onto your plate or dipping bread strait into the pot, with the wine or endives cutting though the rich creaminess of the cheese, and the new potatoes and ham adding a great variation of texture and flavour wither with or between the cheese.

I will most certainly be going back to Terroir for some more great wine and indulgent food.

  1. Baked Mont d’Or? I am off to the deli – via the bakers/off licence Utterly sublime – thanks for sharing it and making my mouth water! Supper tonight for sure. http://europa-cafe.com/ Jai
