Grain store offers food that rather than basing the dish around the protein such as meat or fish, instead the vegetables take centre stage.
Both were very good. The sprouts were crunchy and sweet. The dish is light, refreshing and with a hint of Japanese ponzu and citrus flavours liven up the dish. The scotch egg felt like it was made from pork but nope its vegetarian. The heat cut by the creamy aioli is a delight.
For mains we got buttermilk and caraway braised cauliflower with black trompettes and fresh grapes (£13.5). A vegetarian dish thats rich, sweet and slightly tangy from the buttermilk. The whole braised cauliflower is tender and soft yet sweet. A good dish.
This was an interesting combination. The flavour was right but it was abit heavy. It was good at first but as you gets along it becomes too much. The dish just needed something fresh and zingy to cut its rich and heaviness.
All in all it was a delicious meal. The vegetables really are the star here and for me thats a good thing. If you feel you need a light meal and not just getting deli salads, come here.
