Time to get back into it! I’ve been so busy recently and lost motivation to write, but I’m back and feeling ready to share some other delicious and amazing places to eat and go!
First on my list of places to tell you about is CAU in Blackheath – a restaurant I’ve been meaning to visit for what feels like years.
Me and Chris decided to visit for our New Years Eve meal, so I’m going back a few weeks here now! For this special occasion, we wanted somewhere to visit that would be good quality food, a nice atmosphere but not ridiculously pricey, and this is exactly what we got.
We ordered the olives and the hummus and crisp breads to start, followed by the medallions and the rib-eye steak, as well as sweet potato fries, coleslaw and the truffled mac and cheese. Unfortunately due to the candlelit room the images aren’t the best quality!
We always tend to get olives to start – mostly because I love them, but also because they’re slightly different everywhere and we like to see which are our favourites! These were such a treat and the hummus and breads went down a treat. All I would suggest is that, as there was such a good amount of hummus, there needed to be more breads to use it all up!
Usually, I am not a massive fan of steak… I don’t normally choose it on a menu, but today for the special occasion I went for the medallions. I was not disappointed with my choice! The meat was so tender and soft, it literally melted in the mouth and along with the array of side dishes that we chose, it was such a lovely meal.
Everything was delicious – and I especially loved the little touches like the dishes with the spoon attached for the mac and cheese and the cute pots for sauces. For me it’s the little touches like these that make the meal special!
I would definitely recommend a visit to CAU, they have so many different steak dishes, as well as other things for people who don’t fancy such a meaty dish. They also have separate breakfast and lunch menus, as well as a Sunday roast and party menus. I will definitely be visiting again – however next I want to try their brunch menu, with the bottomless option and two courses it looks so reasonably priced – £12.50 for two courses, with an additional £12.50 if you’d like to add bottomless bubbles and beers! I think this sounds like quite a treat, it’s definitely on my list!
If you have any steak house recommendations please let me know, I’m always on the lookout! In the meantime, take a look at CAU’s Instagram, I literally feel hungry just thinking about it!
