Ansill - dissapointing
I had a very dissappointing dinner at Ansill last weekend. Everything had way too much butter, and tasted only of butter - the mushrooms, the speatzle, the vegetable ragout that came with the fish. The only thing that didn't have too much butter was the fish, which was a bit dry and tough. JugglerDave had better luck with his dishes (sweetbreads, and a wild boar prosciutto). It gave me that 'killed appetite' sick feeling, and I wasn't even able to order dessert (which for me is shocking).
It's possible the staff was not at it's best given the holiday weekend, but I won't be going back to find out. Thank you.
Kibett Mengech is the executive chef at Ansill. BTW, I would agree with you that every meal I've had at Ansill has been excellent. Pif is superb and I hope the new three nights a week policy is not the beginning of the end. I would miss it so much that the thought led us to go to Pif twice last weekend.
