We went to Bohéme on Bridge Road to have lunch with our boss because he was retiring and his last day was next week. The place was very warm and cosy, with dark chocolate wood and while walls.
I organised a bottle of Rothbury Estate Shiraz Cabernet. Beautiful colour, great smell, and while the first sip starts off velvety and peppery, the aftertaste is smooth and fruity. A very drinkable wine.
I asked the waitress for her opinion, and without hesitation, she suggested the Veal Saltimbocca with “fluffy mash and sautéed spinach”. It came out with everything stacked on top of the mashed potatoes, with a moat of white wine and butter sauce. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes, I just want my meal arranged a little differently, instead of everything piled into a tower.
Regardless of the presentation, the meal itself was very tasty. The veal was wrapped with prosciutto and sage, and pan fried until juicy. The spinach was cooked perfectly as it still had a hint of crispness, and it was dressed with crushed capers. I wouldn’t describe the potatoes as fluffy, but they were definitely creamy and delicious and were very helpful for absorbing all that sauce.
All in all, it was a tasty meal, but I will mention that if you’re watching your sodium, try something else from the menu.
