Review: Frog by Adam Handling in Covent Garden

This was actually my second visit to Frog by Adam Handling, I just never got round to writing up the first as we were thoroughly enjoying the tasting menu too much and didn’t take many photos!

On this occasion we made the most of the extended discount they were giving in September, which was a whopping £20 per person off for lunch on certain days! We arrived to find a gorgeous facade outside adorned with flowers and a re-assuring temperature check and spritz of lavender scented sanitiser before being shown to our table.

For drinks, I settled on the Adam Handling sparkling ‘Own label’ from Sussex, which was refreshing and perfect for a warm summery day!

First up was the signature warm sourdough bread and trademark chicken butter which I just can’t get enough off! They also do a vegetarian butter with crispy onions which is also divine.

On this occasion we had decided to order from the A La Carte as it was lunchtime and they have a separate vegetarian menu which is fantastic!

To start with for snacks I chose the Cheese Truffle Doughnuts, which are absolutely moreish and you are encouraged to eat them by hand, the messier the better!

For my starter upon Sima’s recommendation I had the Celeriac with black truffle, dates, apples and lime and it was really tasty! I adore anything with truffle and this is definitely a dish I would have again.

Mains was a dish I had tried before and very much enjoyed – the Cep agnolotti with parsley and garlic. I love the creaminess of the dish and the tartness of the garlic!

Too full for dessert we decided to skip this but we were still treated to a fabulous selection of petit fours which included choux filled with yuzu and a nougat!

As a parting gift they kindly gave us some of his HAME selection to try which included Hibiscus Tea, Granola and a Brioche Bun.

I’d highly recommend checking Frog by Adam Handling out if you haven’t yet. They also have a lovely bar next door which serves lovely cocktails and has a lovely ambience, perfect for either a pre or post dinner tipple.
