Tasting The World at Riverside Walk Kingston

When the sun is out there is no better place to enjoy your lunch, dinner or a glass of wine with friends than by the river. When I got an invitation from Riverside Walk to come to their food bloggers event I was so excited to join in and experience what is eating in an oasis hidden away in Kingston upon Thames all about.

Riverside Walk Kingston

The range of restaurants with their food and drink offerings will truly make you feel like you’re travelling around the world. But with no travel expenses, long flights and jet lags. All at one place, overlooking the atmospheric river Thames, only about 25 minutes of a train journey from central London.

Let’s explore the amazing food!

First stop CAU – the taste of Buenos Aires. If you’re a meat lover like me, this place will be your favourite. Perfectly cooked steaks, burgers, plates for sharing, as well as Sunday roasts.

We were greeted with a glass of refreshing Pink Spritz and after a welcoming speech from Ushma and Gregg from Riverside Walk, the lovely CAU team started to serve their taster platters.

I love the CAU’s interior. It makes you feel like you’re in a different world.

Some photo opportunities and catching the last sunshine with fellow bloggers before moving to the next stop.

Comptoir Libanais Kingston

From Argentina straight to Morocco as we enter Comptoir Libanais. Warm welcome from the managers first, they talked us through their amazing food.

They mentioned ‘eating is sharing’ so we gathered along the table full of fresh colourful dishes, what a display! Look at the excitement in everyone’s eyes!

Grilled pieces of lamb and chicken, hummus, batata harra, fattoush and many more. All make a frequent appearance on most Middle Eastern dinning tables.

Fresh falafel is a must. Here at Comptoir they know how to make the best one.

Apple, mint and ginger flavoured soft drinks for everybody to taste but I always like to go for my favourite fresh rose mint tea served in a silver teapot.

These gorgeous teapots are also available to buy in the restaurant, as well as original cookery books if you want to try some of the recipes at home. They are very easy to follow!

During the night we ran an Instagram competition and Comptoir Libanais chefs were excited to take a part.

Côte Brasserie Kingston

And here is our last stop at the classy Côte Brasserie, serving authentic French classic dishes with a modern twist and inspired by new trends of Paris. We were greeted by the restaurant team who introduced their extensive wine and desserts selection.

Domaine De Barroubio 100% Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains was the wine of the night.

My first impression was the taste is way too sweet for me as I usually prefer dry wines but once matched with the dessert it’s just perfect.

We had a choice of Creme Caramel and Chocolate Mouse. I just couldn’t resist Creme Caramel.

This traditional set vanilla pod custard with dark caramel and creme is such an icon on the Côte’s dessert menu.

What a sweet end of our Taste the World tour. Now when the weather is finally better I will be coming back to enjoy al fresco dining with the stunning views of the river and Kingston Bridge. See you all there!
