The Garden Of Good And Evil, Cheltenham

Following our little outing at Ripponlea House & Gardens, Quyen and I headed over to The Garden Of Good And Evil, Cheltenham for a late lunch. Still feeling full from breakfast at Follow The Leader, I was happy to discover that this restaurant served tapas.

I didn't want anything too heavy, so I ordered the salt and pepper prawns. It was a modest dish, with the most basic of seasonings, and served with rocket and lime aioli. Regardless of its simplicity, it was very enjoyable, as the prawns were tender and their tails were crunchy. The lime aioli gave the dish a little extra zing.

To supplement the prawns, I also ordered a side of Spanish style street corn. I normally boil my corn and eat it plain (without butter, salt, pepper etc.) so this was a delicious change. Served on a mix of mayo, cheese shavings, lime wedges and a sprinkle of chilli powder, it was bursting with rich flavours. 

From top to bottom, Quyen had the chicken tortillas, spiced lamb ribs and the pork belly. I had one mouthful of the pork belly and it was delicious. It was soft, sweet and flavoursome, although the skin did stick to my teeth.

In conclusion, it was a lovely and cosy place that served great food. If I weren't so full from breakfast, I would have ordered a few other dishes as they all sounded very appetising. Also, there is a garden dining area down the back which I would love to experience the next time I dine here.
