Swiss Specialties at Newly-Opened Heritage

Silky fondue cheese? Check. Crisp potato rostis? Check. Surprisingly stand-out sides? Double check.

After their outstanding launch party, I was kindly invited back to try Heritage's menu. And it proved to be equally outstanding, with fondue, raclette and tabletop barbecue dishes to choose from, as well as simple but surprisingly delicious sides.

Heritage part 1/2 | After covering the amazing @heritage_london launch party, I was very kindly invited back to cover the Swiss-inspired restaurant's menu itself. . Fondue cheese? Check. Crisp potato rostis? Check. Surprisingly stand-out sides that could be enjoyed by themselves just as well as the mains? Double check. That romanesco was a big surprise: how good could half a funky cauliflower be? Extremely good, it turns out. The charred flavours were amazing. And the buckwheat spatzle was so fresh and light, the perfect accompaniment to the heavier fondue, which was positively luscious. . Stay tuned for Part 2 where I cover the desserts and cocktails! . {Invited | Top London Restaurant editor's feature} . . . . . #cheesegram #cheeselover #swissfood #fondue #cheesefondue #londonfoodblogger #toplondonrestaurants #londonfoodblog #londonfoodie #londonrestaurant #cheeseporn #londonnights #summerinlondon #meltedcheese #foodwriter #foodiepics #foodphotography #tastelondon #londonfoodguide #buzzfeast #tastethisnext #yougottaeatthis #foodjournalist @rochecom #fancyfondue

Heritage part 2/2 |  Desserts. Glorious, glorious desserts. @heritage_london keeps the momentum going after its stunning main menu with some pretty indulgent sweet treats. You can go for chocolate fondue if you're still in a fondue mood, but we were recommended the kirschtorte (think a very classy black forest gateaux), and the cinnamon cake (sticky toffee pud's sophisticated big sister). These two desserts are definitely where it's at. . Heritage also does some killer cocktails. OG bestie and slowmo assistant of the evening @edidoo and I kicked things off with a Kyoto (Japanese whisky and plum liqueur) and an Aztec Garden (tequila, tonic, citrus and herbs). Followed by an I'm No – Mad (whisky, sherry and chocolate) and Cheeky Mexican (tequila, orange liqueur and Campari). And we finished things off with a Matcha Sour (Japanese gin, matcha and yuzu) and a good, strong Espresso Martini. . I'd just as happily come here for a drink or two as for a full meal, the cocktails are that good. And they have an impressive list of very lovely wines – this time we declined the wine to avoid Serious Consequences the next day. Next time, I'll be all over it. . Thank you to the very lovely people of Heritage for having us! . {Invited | Top London Restaurants editor's feature} . . . . . #dessertlover #dessertstagram #chocolatecake #blackforestgateaux #desserttime #dessertpics #dessertporn #stickytoffeepudding #pudding #cakecakecake #caketime #cakestagram #cakesofinstagram #chocolategram #cocktailgram #cocktailtime #cocktailbar #cakeporn #drinkstagram #londondesserts #londoneats #tastelondon #foodwriter #foodphotographer #londonfoodie #londonfoodblogger #londonfoodblog #londonfoodgram #toplondonrestaurants
