Arborio rice, cream, cheese, cod and mushrooms. £6.50
The Stockpot, London ENGLAND
Damn it! Unfortunately, The Stockpot failed to make a decent risotto; and I love risotto! This dish was WAY too salty and really fishy tasting (in a bad way). I liked the initial texture because it was creamy and the rice still had a nice firmness. But after a few minutes, the sauce seized up and quickly became too thick and gloppy. I’ve learned after-the-fact that this place is a local institution, but usually institutions are known for making at least something really well. All the dishes we tried were marginal and lackluster.
Tulips and primroses at St. James Park. Here’s some beautiful flowers to brighten up this dreary food post.
