I had wanted to go to Champagne & Fromage for ages. It was always rammo'd and you could never get a seat, and as most quirky places in London - you can't book. I took a Friday off work to celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend and we walked past the Brixton Village one and it was (almost) empty, so joy of joys, I got to finally go!
I swear I should live in Barcelona or France - my one true love is cured meats and cheese. The menu was eye-watering and I literally couldn't choose. Or waiter was extremely helpful and attentive and helped us make a good choice. He also talks you through everything on the platter so you know what you're getting.
To start off with I got a cocktail which was essentially Pimms topped with Champagne. It was quite expensive even for London because the glass wasn't huge (it was thin), but I suppose any cocktail with champagne is going to be pricier. It was really tasty anyway and I would probably order again so it's not like it was daylight robbery.
To eat we were directed towards the Sharing Platter, which was such good value for money at around £14! We wanted to try everything, and it came with a really good selection of meats and cheeses, dips and bread. Every single thing I put into my mouth was the best.
In general the experience was really great and I literally cannot wait to go back. What more could you want on your 23rd birthday than a load of salami and cheese?!
