What a fabulous place, Harringtons on the Hill
provided wonderful food for a wedding banquet. The quality of food was top-notch, and the location was really rustic and warm. I was fortunate to try Harringtons with a fantastic special menu.
The appetizer that I had was Scallops with Chorizo salad
. The scallops was really tender and fresh, and the chorizo was a delicious sausage. The appetizer was on a fresh bed of greens that was crisp and sweet - which I really like. I am not a fan of salads with the bold flavoured greens.
Another appetizer that we had as we shared our food (even though they were individually ordered, we couldn't help but putting our forks in each others food) was Country Style Pate
on sourdough toast. There was also a side of red onion jam which really a good pair. Usually, when I think of Red Onion Jam, I think of a big roast or lamb... but, it was complimented nicely with the pate! What made this dish extra special was sourdough toasts and the subtle sourness really elevated the taste and flavour of the appetizer.
My main course during this reception was Seared Peppered Tuna with Mango and Red Pepper Salsa
, which was delicious filet of tuna cooked to perfection and topped with a fresh and homemade mango & pepper salsa. It was extremely refreshing with the salsa and the nice squeeze of lime.
As we were in Kenilworth, a dish called Kenilworth Spring Lamb
with couscous was very attractive. It makes you think of fresh local flavours at it's best! It was true, the lamb was tender and juicy.
My cousin ordered the Lemon Cheesecake
where I HAD to try some. It was so refreshing and the cheesecake was light, fluffy and creamy! It was a really nice texture of cheesecake, and it definitely wasn't sitting around for a few days in the refrigerator! So, this was a really special cheesecake. Suddenly, I really like lemon flavoured desserts!
Apple Pie with Custard
was a wonderful dessert. Warm, decadent apple pie with warm custard I got to drizzle on my pie! Normally with apple pie, you get the scoop of Vanilla ice cream, but this warm custard made the pie extra rich, and it was perfect. There wasn't ice cream making the crust soggy or anything! It was a perfect end to a perfect meal!
There's never a better dessert than Warm Chocolate Brownie
and this brownie was rich tender and chewy chocolate brownie "bar".
This is a restaurant where everyone who enjoyed it is still thinking about it and wanting to return in the near future! :) I know I will be for sure! The food here is definitely exceptional!
