After my Go Ape adventure I was still feeling a little shaky and nervous, and was in absolutely no mood to cook.
No need for a better excuse needed, then, to head to the newest addition to the North London chain The Blue Legume, in Muswell Hill.
I’m hoping that the name is an homage to the
totally crap classic ’80s film (which is only saved by the fact that Brooke Shields’ eyebrow game is strong), but I could be making that up completely. With outlets in Islington, Crouch End, Stoke Newington and Muswell Hill, The Blue Legume serves Mediterranean fare in a casual, bistro-style atmosphere. I can’t vouch for these myself, but Zomato have featured them in their ‘Wonderful Waffles‘ collection, so I’m guessing they’re pretty great at breakfasts.
It was quite a contrast to my mixed seafood risotto, which was about as perfect as seafood risottos get. The perfect amount of bite, seasoned perfectly, with a good mixture of different kinds of seafood – and for under a tenner, really quite reasonable indeed.
I’ve noticed on weeknights that they’ve been doing a deal – paella and a jug of sangria for two for £25, which is something I’ll definitely have to check out soon!(3.5 / 5)
