This summer has seen the launch of “Le Petit Honours” a selection of classic The Honours dishes to share and enjoy as small plates. Choose any 3 dishes for £15.95 and add additional dishes for £5.00 per plate. Le Petit Honours at The Honours restaurant Malmaison Glasgow The Honours Glasgow is available Monday to Thursday 12.00pm to 2:30pm and 5:30pm to 10:00pm.
We love the idea of smaller plates, often you fancy two of the starters and none of the mains and a pudding but feel a bit wierd just ordering that, so this deal sorts that out.
We were invited along to a media review to check out the new menu, and for Mr Foodies first trip the The Honours.
The menu can be found online here.
Ox cheeks à la Bordelaise with pommes purée. The rich sauce with meaty and red wine flavours mixed excellently with the creamy purée. This was our first time trying ox cheeks, and we weren’t disappointed. The cheeks had a strong flavour – think venison – which worked perfectly with the sauce. We’ll be ordering this again.
Pork and Duck Rillettes with spiced date chutney. This plate was a perfect size, tangy, salty but in all the right places with chunks of meat and a tangy chutney. Get some fresh crusty bread to go with this.
Asparagus, leek, fine bean and pea salad with toasted almonds. For those who want a lighter experience this salad is a winner. Crisp vegetables and delicate flavours. Ideal with a glass of white.
Beetroot risotto Creméaux with aged parmesan. The shocking pink of this dish is eye catching to say the least. Thankfully none of the earthy beetroot taste, this risotto is creamy, thick and very moreish. You will be surprised how full you will be after this portion.
Beef and ginger Asian style salad. The moist and tender beef strips combined with ginger is another lighter styled dish from the menu. Although lighter in style, the ginger dressing lets you know it is there.
Hand rolled tagliatelle with truffle purée. This one is Mrs Foodies favourite. Lightly flavoured with truffle so much so even not much a fan of truffle Mrs Foodie loves. Coating the tagliatelle well, and with some extras for bread dipping.
Mussels, chorizo and coconut broth. Definitely French in style compared to the huge complex broths from more traditional Asian restaurants. The plump mussels are covered in fishy/coconut liquor which doesn’t overpower.
The Honours Sundae and a sneak peek of crème brûlée Ice cream, toffee and chocolate – we don’t need to say more! The top of the crème brûlée had a thick topping to smash open and show off the creamy inside. We were impressed with the portion size for “small plates”
Île Flottante with creme anglaise – gooey marshmallow like island floating on top of the lightest creme anglaise.
Le Petit Honours is an ideal way to check out The Honours, for a lighter lunch, a decadent splurge (three puddings to yourself!) or a lighter pre-theatre dinner.
+ sometimes you want three starters, mains or desserts.
+ handy intro to The Honours style.
+ good portions for price.
+Would be a good saturday shopping treat.
We shared our dishes at a media lunch, Fred says we still wrote truthfully.
