Dinner at Lima Floral, Covent Garden

I've posted before about my dinner at Lima, London's michelin starred Peruvian restaurant. Well, as I was such a big fan of Lima, we decided to give a go to their smaller restaurant, Lima Floral.

The cocktail was a very strange one! It was a spicey one, which is what you get when you just read the names and don't actually read what is in it. It may have been a bit of an acquired taste, but by the end of the drink I actually really loved it! But perhaps not enough to order a second...

Overall, this was a great meal, and I would honestly say that the quality is not far below Lima. I also much prefered the decoration and atmosphere of Lima Floral - I loved the bright colours!

The food was delicious, although our desserts were most definitely odd. As is always a must in these sort of places, we each ordered something completely different so that we could sample as much of the menu as possible, and the desserts were decisively strange. Not bad, but strange, and I probably wouldn't order either of them again. However, the rest of the meal was absolutely spot on. My friend hadn't tried Peruvian food before but decided to go, and he absolutely loved it as well!

The price wasn't bad at all - For two of us it came to around £80, and this would have been less if we hadn't gone for the cocktails.

When compared to Lima itself, this is a difficult one to pick a favourite. I would probably go with Lima simply because the tasting menu we had there was a really great deal, however I think both offer great menus and a great atmosphere.

Have a look at the menu and make a booking over at their website, here!
