Review on Vivat Bacchus

Younger sibling to the highly successful Vivat Bacchus in Farringdon, the London Bridge venue is also a magnet for fans of fine wine and fine food (especially cheese). First the food. If you fancy something light you can get tapas platters, daily specials and the renowned Vivat Bacchus steak sandwiches.

VB's owners hail from South Africa and the menu has a strong bias towards the home country - although the kitchen works with flavours and ideas gleaned from the world larder.

Kick off with crocodile spring rolls with smoked chilli jam, ostrich 'tartare' or seared peppered kudu carpaccio with girolles, apricots and rocket salad. After that, perhaps prawn and butterfish Thai curry, chicken saltimbocca with pecorino gnocchi or herb and mustard crusted roast loin of springbok. Desserts have their fans, but it would be sinful to miss a trip to the tantalising cheese room.

As for wine, there a two dedicated cellars (one for whites, one for reds) containing a prodigious number of bottles from scores of growers worldwide - many of which are rarities from South African vineyards (although Italy, Spain and the Antipodes also figure strongly). You are welcome to take a tour and pick your own.
