Lunch With ...

Saturday, March 19, 2016

Last week I was invited for lunch with The Potato Project and today I am sharing with you my experience and what I ate. 
Recently opened on Noel Street in Soho, The Potato Project is great for a wholesome lunch where you get quality food for a very good price. As you might of guessed from the cafes name it’s all about the potato, however that is only the beginning of the story. 
Kesnia the founder and owner was so lovely guiding me through their menu and also shared with me her inspiration for this cafe which came from her Mother’s home cooked Russian meals, and the many ways she used potatoes in her dishes.

Just a warning... the following images may cause your tummies to rumble. 
Let’s dig in!
The first dish I tried was the prawn & bourbon which had a lovely sweet, creaming taste. It was full of flavour from the bourbon but wasn’t overpowering and you still tasted the prawns. I was pleasantly surprised by the generous portion size and the amount of prawns you get too. If you’re looking for something lighter than a meatier dish than I would recommend going for this!

I also got to try the shepherds pie ragu which was another unique twist to the standard jacket potato toppings you’ll find in most cafes. The pulled lamb was so soft that it melted in my mouth, it was a fab twist to the traditional shepherds pie which uses minced lamb and went so well with the crispy skin of the potato. The ragu was also delicious and full of flavour it gave a very homey and warm but familiar feeling as if it was made by your own Mother or eating at a friends house.  

Another fab invention is their sweet potato cheesecake. I would never thought that sweet potato can be in a cheesecake or a dessert but I have to say it works! The sweetness from both the potato and cream cheese was unusual but simply scrumptious.  
The Potato Project offers a wide range of toppings to go along with your baked potato, always using the freshest ingredients with menus adapting to the season. This is a great pit stop to fuel up and relax with friends over delicious spuds especially when all the staff are super friendly making you feel well looked after.
