Recently, Sai treated me to a trip to Slug & Lettuce to celebrate my birthday with a late lunch. This was my first visit to a Slug & Lettuce and I had high expectations thanks to the various instagram pictures I had seen – and I’m happy to say I wasn’t disappointed. A wash of pinks, greens and Monstera leaves paves way to trendy table and feature walls that are begging to be photographed.
We chose food from the daytime menu (served until 4PM). There’s plenty of choice on the menu ranging from burgers and steaks to wraps and curries. I loved the fact that it wasn’t restricted and a few of the meat dishes could be swapped out for veggie options if requested.
We placed our orders up at the bar. All the staff that served us were friendly and service was prompt so I can’t fault them for anything there.
Slug & Lettuce offer a 2 for 1 deal on cocktails on the same cocktails. Considering that we don’t drink we search out the mocktail options and saw they had three alternatives to the popular alcoholic counterparts. We settled on two bambini bellinis, sweet and sharp and perfect to showcase on our instastories.
Sai decided on the sautéed pepper and grilled halloumi tostada – a rectangular flatbread pizza-like dish. It looked incredibly fresh and it must have tasted good, as I haven’t seen her finish her plate that quickly in a while. She also ordered a side of sweet potato fries that came with garlic mayo. I was surprised how large the portion of fries was and we struggled to finish them.
I picked out the wagyu burger that came with crispy fries. Not the easiest item on the menu to eat as it was packed with Camembert and creamy garlic mushrooms – there was no dignity in eating this dish but it was delicious.
We skipped pudding thanks to the large portion sizes that were served up but are looking forward to heading back in the future!
