A taste of reality in L’Autre Pied by Laoise Casey.
The menu combines bitter and sour flavours and wraps them up in combinations which explode in your mouth in sensational bursts. I was about to taste for myself. I didn’t realise just how much I was going to get to taste.
As the music is switched off, a shout of ‘First bread‘ signals the start of service. I felt tingles as I heard Andy call out the orders and the kitchen immediately increased its already quick pace. It’s like watching a carefully orchestrated, if crazy, routine where everyone knows their steps.
