Beside one of my favourite clubs of all time, Kantina was visited by me and my friend for a Londonlicious meal. It was in the winter, and he drove me in his mod’ed car, opening the door for me as I stepped out onto the salt-filled sidewalk in my new heels.
We walked in and were greeted by a nice waiter. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. It was cozy and romantic, with benches for seats along with cute pillows. The patrons kept their conversations intimate, at a low volume. The walls were white and had occasional nooks where a piece of decoration was placed.
We picked our food and there was not too long of a wait. It seats about 30 people, so the wait was appropriate.
To start, I had a strawberry cocktail. It was nothing special. For my appetizer, we both had the tomato rabbit soup. For the main, I had the Pork, which was absolutely delicious. It was so tender and juicy and had a pleasant surprise on the inside: delicious mix of veggies and meat. It was served with some greens on top, homemade mashed potatoes on the side (which were absolutely delicious), and a mushroom reduction. The meal was so incredible, rich and delicious, yet not forgetting the importance of not over-doing it. My friend had the butternut squash ravioli. For dessert, we shared the berry panna cotta served with biscotti and the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla icecream.
It was an amazingly delicious meal and I loved every bit of it. For a prix-fixe, it was one of the better ones I’ve had. I do recommend giving this place a visit if you’re ever in town.
Atmosphere: dim, intimate, comfortable
