Review on Mya Lacarte
Mya Lacarte, this oddly named eatery was the brainchild of Matthew and Yasmina Siadatan - tele-addicts may recall she won The Apprentice in 2009. Following her success she went off to work for Lord Alan and left brother Matt to run the show in Caversham.
It doesn't seem to have made much of a difference, since the place is moving along nicely and ticks all the fashionable boxes when it comes to seasonal sourcing, food miles, recycling and green credibility. It helps that the kitchen is headed up by Remy Joly - who made his name cooking at celeb gastropub the Crooked Billet at Stoke Row.
The regularly updated menus tell their own story: here you might find Herefordshire snails, Bocaddon Farm veal and Thames crayfish in various guises, plus much more besides. Typical plates might be cured meat carpaccio with soused vegetables, radish leaves and Spenwood shavings, Laverstoke Park rack of lamb with globe artichoke, ratatouille and confit garlic, and puds such as iced boozy cherry parfait with a dark chocolate 'wave' or 'afternoon tea on a slate'.
