Whenever dad comes to town, he likes to take me out for a scrumptious meal, whatever the day of the week, or time of the evening, we love to experience new and exciting restaurants, all found in his much loved Michelin Guide.
Last week our #michelinmonday took us to Lima in Fitzrovia, a Peruvian restaurant which I was keen to try. I don’t remember what I used to do when restaurants didn’t have an online menu that I could thoroughly examine in advance so I dutifully downloaded the menu and got carb counting for all the dishes I thought I might fancy. I was pleased to see that it looked like staying low carb wasn’t going to be too much of a challenge as many of the dishes were very fish and vegetable based – some of them looked distinctly sushi like which excited me a lot!
I therefore had a few options in mind by the time we actually sat down for dinner and after narrowing them down I opted for the following…
We started with a couple of snacks
Followed by some yummy starters:
WILD SEABASS TIRADITO
And on to the mains..
HALIBUT CACTUS (for me)
SUCKLING PIG (for Dad)
By this point I was happily content so I ordered a fresh mint tea whilst dad plumped for the Avocado Mousse…and what a spectacle it was! A mass of chocolatey awesomeness crafted to look just like an Avocado! Two of my favourite things combined in to one!
I would thoroughly recommend Lima, really tasty and fairly low carb food making it a perfect diabetes friendly option!
