Where did April go?! I have absolutely no idea, all I know is that we appear to have skipped right past Spring and straight into Summer… long may it continue! On one of last week’s particularly sunny evening’s I was invited to dinner at Megan’s by the Green in Fulham, so my boyfriend and I headed along to try it out.
Megan’s has two locations in Fulham, one on the Kings Road and this one (our nearest) by Parsons Green, as well as a spot opening its doors in Balham soon. As Megan’s is famed for it’s popular brunches at the weekend, where queues are often out the door, I was excited to try their evening offering. When I arrived at 8pm the restaurant was buzzing, with my spot by the windows the only table left available (a great sign on a week night)!
There is a reason why Megan’s has been described as one of the most romantic restaurant’s in London: it’s absolutely gorgeous. Whatever the weather, at Megan’s you feel like you’re dining al fresco because of the beautiful flowers and fairy lights that completely cover the ceiling… perfect for a relaxed date night.
As the sun was shining, I seized the opportunity to grab a Pimm’s (£8.50) to sip on while we perused the Mediterranean inspired menu.
To start, we ordered flatbread with harissa hummus (£5) and halloumi with imam bayildi (£5.50) to share. The flatbread was warm and fluffy from the oven, and made an ideal summer evening starter. I am a great lover of halloumi, so really enjoyed this delicious serving of the cheese. The flavours of the aubergine in the imam bayildi worked beautifully with the grilled halloumi!
For my main I opted for a spicy chicken skewer. This was served with bulgur wheat and pomegranate salad. (£13.50). Elliot chose the posh lamb ‘donner’ open kebab (£14.50), which was made up of overnight braised lamb shoulder, feta, pistachio, hummus, pickles, imam bayildi and red cabbage, all served on a flatbread. However, we both ended up sharing! Neither dish disappointed: these were really exceptional versions of kebabs – and such huge portions! The chicken was delightfully juicy and pleasantly spiced without being overpowering, while the slow cooked lamb was flavoursome and tender.
After our delicious starters and mains I wasn’t sure if we would have room for dessert, but I am so glad that we did. We selected Megan’s signature dessert: the warm skillet cookie. This consisted of warm cookie dough, filled at the centre with a melting pool of nutella and topped with ice cream. You have to order this. It was simply heavenly.
I loved our evening at Megans, every course we had impressed and the venue was absolutely beautiful. Whilst our meal was complementary, I felt that the prices were really reasonable for the area. I would absolutely recommend Megan’s, and will definitely be returning… In fact, I’ve already been back for brunch!
