Scallops, Garlic, Chili (11) @GaloupetCategory: Brasserie (£££) And another small plate restaurant. I remember when these restaurants started to pop up everywhere I was thrilled. Now I have reached a point of saturation where all I want once in a while is a normal menu!Galoupet is a posh small plate restaurant and wine bar just next to Princess Diana’s favourite Italian San Lorenzo on Beauchamp Place. This is an area that clearly needs new and inventive restaurants and and Galoupet is heading in the right direction setting itself apart from other overpriced, stuffy and pretentious restaurants close by, but it is still far from having reached the goal.Medasian Food? Overall the food was, even though not bad at all, far below my expectations. Some things were just wrong about Galoupet’s food:1. The mixture of oriental and meditereanen flavours seemed forced rather than well thought through2. We found the same ingredients in very different dishes (e.g.t the chili sauce on the scallops and the one on the pork tasted suspiciously similar)3. Everything was garnished with coriander. I mean I love coriander, but this overkill is not exactly sophisticated use of herbs.Burrata, Grilled Fennel, Orange, Purple
