Week beginning April 27th - Spring Menu Inspirations

This weeks menu at Eastcastle Street is courtesy of manager Gina. Earlier today she asked if I knew what next weeks menu inspiration will be? I replied 'I have no idea, but maybe we'll visit north of Burma (last weeks menu) and do a Bangladesh theme'. Gina then suggested 'Spring' as an inspiration and a new menu was born. 

Spring also ties in nicely with the boxes of pre-orded mayer lemons that I received today. Mayer lemons is a citrus fruit native to China and can be described as a cross between a lemon and mandarin. Though still sour you can eat a mayer lemon on its own as they have a slight sweetness to compensate. The skin is thin and has a fragrant smell similar to oranges. This week the kitchen team is very excited to be incorporating these wonderful fruits into our tart with a famous spring time veg courgettes. Lemons and courgette have always been a well matched combination and now they will live happily together in our lunch time tarts, buttery, crispy, sharp and lastly mallow. 

If you're like me and against the grain you'll be pleased to know that at both Kaffeine stores all 6 of our salads are gluten-free. Substance and freshness using ingredients such as grilled salmon, heritage tomatoes, quinoa, spring lamb and of corse the king of spring, asparagus. 

No matter what your diet is we have it covered so come in, eat and get caffeinated.
