Chubby Hubby reviews Iggy's, a restaurant at the Regent Hotel.
Last week, a colleague and I had a wonderful lunch at Iggy’s. While we each ordered a 3 course lunch, Iggy gave us an equal number of extras. What was meant to be a small lunch became a 6 course feast. We started with a sesame tofu covered by a pumpkin puree. We then both had squid ink risotto with char-grilled baby squid. This was followed by mushroom cappuccinos. My colleague had for her main course a char-grilled seabass with truffle gnocchi, rosemary oil and aged balsamic (pictured at the top of this post). I had the homemade hamburger with over-easy egg, grilled onions and potato wedges. (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this is easily the best burger in town. The only problem is it is no more than 3 inches across. Considering, however, the number of other courses we’re expected to eat, anything bigger might kill us.)
