Naturally, when you’re looking for a winter warmer, The Botanist, next to Trinity, is a go-to move, but have you seen their new menu yet?
The award-winning restaurant chain has unveiled their winter food offering, and there’s some gorgeous options on the menu.
It wouldn’t be a menu at the Botanist without their iconic hanging kebabs and for the festive season they’ve introduced (you guessed it) orange and turkey glazed hanging kebabs with all the trimmings.
And not only that, hanging kebabs enthusiasts can now also make it a group experience, with a new sharing option which includes a chicken, a crispy halloumi and a lamb kofta kebab on a triple-skewer rack. Served with properly seasoned fries, coleslaw, houmous and flatbread, it’s the perfect option for three diners to tuck into.
Another delicious new addition is the turkey and camembert burger with maple glazed bacon and cranberry sauce. The best bit? It comes with a giant pig in blanket sat right on top of it.
There’s also a great selection of new starters and side dishes on the menu, including straight up bowls of pigs in blankets glazed with orange and cranberry, a sharing baked truffle camembert fondue and a three-cheese baked mac ‘n’ cheese.
Can’t decide between all these festive goodies? Don’t worry because you don’t have to. The Botanist’s hot sharing board now comes with tater tot poutine, turkey koftas, Cumberland scotch egg, mussels in fragrant curry sauce and mac ‘n’ cheese.
The vegan option includes bang bang cauliflower, superfood salad, sweet potato houmous, crispy porcini gnocchi with truffle mustard mayo and roasted tomato soup. It’s the perfect food to nibble on whilst enjoying a few festive drinks between friends.
The sweet toothed out there can tuck into The Botanist’s signature warm cookie dough dessert that has had a seasonal makeover and now comes with After Eights or Celebrations.
Speaking bout the launch of the new seasonal dishes, James Scott, Executive Chef at The Botanist said: “This time of year is all about celebration and enjoying good food with loved ones and that feels even more so the case this winter after our get-togethers have been restricted for the past couple of Christmases.
“With this menu we wanted to showcase a modern take on comfort food with festive flavours that taste luxurious and indulgent, offering our diners a seasonal update to the signature dishes they’ve come to know and love when visiting our restaurants.”
