La Sophia - Notting Hill

Its not usual to find a Mediterranean Halal restaurant, but I came across La Sophia when researching restaurants and took my best friend here for her birthday. Our dinner choice came from the seasonal a la carte menu and did not displease. 

The food was presented beautifully and at first glance the portions looked small, but this was deceiving as I was stuffed halfway through eating my main course.

Aubergine mille-feuille , grilled hallomui, chilli, tomato concasse and pecan 

I chose rabbit for my main as this was an uncommon meat choice on restaurant menus and I had never tried it before. It was really good and the pomegranate tabouli and saffron couscous complimented it perfectly.

My best friend chose the chicken dish and it just burst with flavour, the truffle sauce was amazing.

Delcious dessert to top off a great meal. The fondant was warm and gooey and I really should have stopped eating after main. But after such an impressive starter and main course I could not resist ordering something sweet.
