I was staying over at the Drayton Court Hotel in West Ealing. This is a place I stay regularly when working away in London. The menu changes regularly, though I couldn’t say how often it changes.
On a recent visit there was a new addition to the menu, beef short rib bao buns with Bourbon maple glaze, aioli, coriander, and peanuts.
I do like a good bao bun, so it was no surprise that I ordered this dish. I was intrigued as this was quite a fusion style dish, I don’t see Bourbon maple glaze as something you would find in Fujian cuisine.
I was pleasantly surprised to get two buns, I was only expecting one. It was nicely presented.
The beef was nice and tender, and I quite liked the Bourbon maple glaze. It was a good plate of food.
On a following visit I ordered them again, as I had enjoyed it the first time.
It did look a little different, also the beef was not as good as before. Not sure of why there was a difference.
