Sunday Brunch at Hotel du Vin Glasgow – November 2012

hotel_du_vin

We were invited along to try out the new “Le Brunch” at Hotel du Vin.  We have dined here on a couple of occasions and like it a lot, so we were eager to try their brunch menu.  At £19.50 per person, we were expecting to be spoiled.  We certainly were!

Curried Parsnip Soup

Curried Parsnip Soup was the Soup du Jour – creamy and not too overpowering with the curry flavour.  Could have done with being hotter for me, but I did like the frothy consistency.

You then go onto their French Market Table.  As you can see it is set up with all sorts of delights.  Anti pasti, breads, Serrano ham to be carved, salami, salmon, smoked mackeral pate, oysters, dressed crab, salads….

French Market Table

Selection of Salads

A very proud and helpful Chef, talked me through each of the items and suggested what would go well.

Bistro Burger – with bacon, Gruyere and fries.  Huge portion, moist meat, crisp fries

Roast Aberdeen Beef Rib with vegetables and yorkie – only disappointment here was the huge amount of air in the Yorkie and not enough thick batter to soak up the delicious red wine gravy.  Vegetables were crispy but cooked, beef – mouthwatering.

and still more!

Creme Brulee – what can you do to improve on a classic?  Served with melt in the mouth shortbreads.

Bistro du Vin Coupe – Vanilla, Pistachio Ice creams with nougat and chocolate sauce.  All was quiet during this one.  Chewy, crunchy but also melting cream. A great mix

We finished with two espressos served with some lovely puff candy.

Again, very impressed with Hotel du Vin.  Attentive and friendly staff, excellent food, and a lovely leisurely brunch.   Would be one to pencil into the diary again.
