Base Bistro in Hampstead

Halloumi at Base

Halloumi at Base

On Saturday went with two friends for a wander to Hampstead Heath. Caught the tube from Angel to Hampstead and felt immediately peckish. I was angling for Dim Sum and had already googled the address for Dim-T but my friends wanted a panini and we almost ended up in Starbucks but across the road was a friendly looking bistro with lots of gorgeous looking Hampsteadites sitting outside so we compromised there. We entered the impossibly narrow entrance dodging waitress with plates laden with beautifully fresh looking salads and took our seats. Looking at the menu nothing looked as good as the fresh salads piled temptingly on the counter so we opted for them. I had insalata tricolore, asparagus with soft boiled eggs and lovely squeaky halloumi cheese with tomato. This was washed down with a nice chilled sauvingnon blanc and a basket of bread. Cost was about £12 a head, excellent, we will be back

Score 8/10
