the Little Gloster, nr Cowes
we went for lunch and had some fabulous food.
my boyfriend had a chicken ceasar burger which was, I think, the best chicken burger I have ever had. not that it was a burger - it was a piece of chicken, probably marinaded in something like buttermilk, which had a light parmesan batter and served in a slightly crisp scandi roll (the chef has Danish roots) with a little ceasar dressing and lettuce. perfect chips too.
I had two starters - crab and crayfish cakes which had real texture as the pieces of white crab/crayfish were left large and then bound with the brown crab meat plus asian flavourings (chilli, lemongrass etc). the dipping sauce and salad dressing was also asian. my second starter was buffalo mozzarella (wonderfully creamy and flavoursome) with tomatoes (some fresh, some roasted & marinated) with a chilli, mint & garlic oil dressing.
I definitely be back for supper next time I am on the island.
