Red Peppercorn, Lancaster

Whilst on our walk down memory lane, we decided to stop by the Red Peppercorn for dinner – a fusion food restaurant that opened just last year.

We were greeted with a warm welcome and given menus to have a ponder at the food. We were even shown the specials board… I mean, the board was actually carried over to us!

We shared a mezze between us. Lamb samosas, corn fritters, chicken coated in popcorn, stir fried chorizo, and a puffed rice salad that Issy was very much looking forward to having again.

Inevitably, the puffed rice salad was our favourite part of the main! A different take on an Indian Bhelpuri (a savoury snack usually made from puffed rice, sev, mixed vegetables and a tamarind sauce).

Now, whilst we liked our main course… we absolutely adored the dessert! A saffron rice pudding with caramelised blood oranges.

There’s just something about saffron in desserts that just makes me happy. Not to mention blood oranges are a bit amazing. Definitely a dessert we’re going to have to try making!

Once we’d finished we were then greeted by Anita Patel, the restaurant creator and chef, and asked how everything was, which was a lovely touch at the end of the meal. To see a restaurateur so interested in customer feedback just shows her passion for food!

Highly recommend visiting, for the warm hospitality… and that saffron rice pudding!!!
