No197 Chiswick Fire Station

We are back in London and its back to work time. Although it is still really warm here, you can feel the crisp autumn breeze starting to filter in (except today it feels rather tropical with high humidity and 27 c temperature). Autumn is on its way and it makes me very happy.

On Sunday, I headed to our old neighbourhood to meet with a friend and check out a cracking new brunch spot over in West London. No197 Chiswick Fire station. Chiswick Fire Station is a hip contemporary neighbourhood bar and restaurant, located in the old firehouse building on the high road. The vibe was relaxed, service was excellent and the food delicious. You can pop in anytime from breakfast to a late night drink and have a proper interiors feast on top of it all. The No197 has seriously gorgeous decor.

Olemme palanneet Lontooseen ja takaisin työelämään loman jälkeen. Vaikka täällä on edelleen todella lämmin, voi jo tuntea pientä syksyistä kirpeyttä ilmassa (paitsi tänään kun ilmasto tuntuu enemmän trooppiselta ilmankosteuden ja 27 c asteen lämpötilassa). Syksy saa minut hyvälle tuulelle. 

Viime sunnuntaina suuntasin vanhaan naapurustoomme tapaamaan ystävää ja tutustumaan upouuteen brunssipaikkaan länsi-Lontoossa. No197 Chiswick Fire Station. Chiswick Fire Station on hip ja moderni naapuruston baari ja ravintola, joka sijaitsee vanhassa paloaseman rakennuksessa Chiswikin päätien varrella. Ilmapiiri oli rento, palvelu erinomaista ja kaikki tilaamme annokset herkullisia. Voit pistäytyä sisään milloin vain, aamiaisesta yömyssyyn ja herkutella upealla sisustuksella kaiken muun lisäksi. No197:ssä on aivan mahdottoman upea sisustus.

These blue velvet barstools where almost my favourite…

Nämä siniset sametti baarituolit olivat jo melkein suosikkini…

But the cosy pink suede sofas took the first price. And the cacti.

Mutta pehmoiset vaaleanpunaiset sohvat veivät ensimmäisen palkinnon. Ja kaktukset.

Snazzy little tables and succulents.

Makeita pieniä pöytiä ja mehikasveja.

The food was fresh, deliciously cooked, with a focus on well-sourced ingredients. We loved that the menu had a special section for small sharing dishes.

Kaikki annokset olivat raikkaita ja herkullisesti kokattuja, ravintola selvästi keskittyy hyviin raaka-aineisiin. Olin innoissani kun huomasin menussa erityisen osion pienille, jaettavaksi tarkoitetuksi annoksille.

I went for truffle mac n’ cheese and aubergine & sweet potato croquettes with sun blushed tomato, basil and feta – both delightful.

Minä valitsin tryffeli makaroni ja juuston sekä munakoiso bataatti kroketit, joiden kanssa auringon kuivattua tomaattia, basilikaa ja fetajuustoa – molemmat tosi herkkuja.

My friend ordered the No 197 Club Sandwich. Sourdough toast topped with grilled chicken, smoked bacon, avocado, roasted tomatoes and a side of basil mayo. She said it was the best club sandwich she has had.

Ystäväni tilasi No 197 Club Sandwichin. Paahdettua hapanleipää, jonka päällä grillattua kanaa, savustettu pekonia, avokadoa, paahdettuja tomaatteja ja basilika majoneesia. Hän sanoi, että se oli paras klubileipä mitä on hän on syönyt.

We were dreaming of having the ricotta pancakes with blueberries. But just couldn’t after all that mac n’ cheese. There is always next time.

Did you like the interiors at Chiswick Fire House, whats your favourite part?

Haaveilimme ricotta pannukakuista mustikoiden kera, mutta tällä kertaa ei millään voinut syödä enempää. Aina on seuraava kerta.

Mitäs pidit sisustuksesta, mikä juttu on sinun lempparisi?
